Information @ a Glance


  • Magnesium oxide, or magnesia, is a white solid mineral that occurs naturally as periclase and is a source of magnesium.  It has an empirical formula of MgO. It is formed by an ionic bond between one magnesium and one oxygen atom.
  • The majority of magnesium oxide produced today is obtained from the processing of naturally occurring minerals such as magnesite (magnesium carbonate), magnesium chloride rich brine, and seawater.
  • Magnesium oxide is used as a basic refractory material for lining crucibles, principal ingredient in construction materials , optical material, electrical heating industry., animal feeding industry , magnesium supplement.
  • Industrial Uses of Magnesium Oxide includes Abrasives, Animal feed supplement, Boiler (oil-fired) additives, Boiler feedwater treatment, Chemicals, Coatings, Construction, Electrical, Fertilizers, Foundries, Glass manufacture, Insulation, Lubricating oils, Pharmaceuticals, Plastics manufacture, Refractory and ceramics, Rubber compounding, Steel industry, Sugar refining, Sulfite wood pulping, Uranium, gallium and boron processing, Wastewater treatment.
  • In the United States and Europe, the largest captive end use for magnesium chloride is in the production of magnesium metal. The largest merchant end uses for magnesium chloride are for dust control and de-icing.
  • The largest end use for magnesium hydroxide is in wastewater treatment and flue gas desulphurization. Ease of handling, increasing environmental markets and the high price level of caustic soda have spurred demand in these applications over the past five years.
  • The majority of the magnesium oxide produced worldwide is consumed as refractory magnesia. The primary use of refractory magnesia is in furnace linings in the iron and steel industry.
  • Of the various applications of magnesium and its alloys, die casting is the fastest growing sector of magnesium consumption.
  • Major producers of Magnesium Oxide in the world are are Korea Magnesia Clinker, Industry Group, RHI AG, Magnesita Refratarios, Magnezit Group, SMZ Jelsava, Queensland Magnesia, MARTIN MARIETTA MAGNESIA SPECIALTIES, Kumas-Kuthaya Magnesite Works Corp, Nedmag Industries, The Premier Chemical, GRECIAN MAGNESITE, Navarras SA, Ube Material Industries, Industras Penoles(Quimica del Rey), Konya Selcuklu Krom, Dalmia, Iranian Refractories Procurement & Production Company, Imerys and Haicheng Houying Group
  • China continues to dominate the magnesium oxide market as the largest producer and consumer, as well as the largest global exporter
  • China is by far the world’s largest consumer of magnesia, because it is the world’s largest producer of steel and cement.
