Magnesium sulfate (MgSO?), also known as English salt, is a solid chemical compound that is made up of oxygen, magnesium, and sulfur. It is a naturally occurring white crystalline mineral that is odorless and highly soluble in water. It can also be artificially prepared by neutralizing sulfuric acid with magnesium carbonate. Magnesium sulfate is versatile and offers several advantages, which is why it is extensively used across the personal care, healthcare, food and beverage (F&B), and pharmaceutical industries. In the healthcare industry, it is used as an anticonvulsant, a cathartic, and an electrolyte replenisher in the treatment of pre-eclampsia and eclampsia. It is also used as a soaking solution to relieve muscle aches, minor sprains, bruises, joint stiffness or soreness, and tired feet.
The rapidly expanding agriculture sector and the increasing use of magnesium sulfate as a fertilizer to fulfill the magnesium deficiency in soil are some of the key factors providing a thrust to the market growth. In line with this, the rising global population has significantly surged the demand for food products, which is creating a positive outlook for the market. Vegetable and crop farmers are highly dependent on magnesium-rich soil to create suitable conditions for high crop yield. Furthermore, the surging application of magnesium sulfate for therapeutic purposes and the rapidly expanding pharmaceutical sector are bolstering the market growth. Apart from this, the burgeoning application of magnesium sulfate in the personal care industry to manufacture sun-tan, hair, and skincare products is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Moreover, the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases and rapid technological advancements in the nutraceuticals sector are boosting the market growth. Additionally, key market players are heavily investing in research and development activities (R&D) to increase their production output, which is positively supporting the market growth across the globe. Besides this, the rising incorporation of magnesium sulfate in animal feed, due to significant changes in consumption patterns and emerging trends in livestock products, are propelling the market growth.
