The first tons/year equipment of magnesium carbonate was gone into operation by Meishen Technology. The performance indexes of magnesium carbonate can reach or exceed the products from Japan and Israel. Therefore, the magnesium carbonate produced by Meishen can completely satisfy the demands from users, and the supply falls short of demand. As the best supplement magnesium carbonate in medicine and food industry, this industry is facing the developing period.
The demostic magnesium carbonate industry is optimistic about its long-term prospects. The raw material shortage has been main restrictive factor of magnesium carbonate industrial development. In 2009, Chinese magnesium carbonate production was just 10 000 tons, and the import volume was the same. Therefore, the degree of external dependence has already exceed 80%. With the increasingly medicine and food industry, the gap of magnesium carbonate will be widen further.
Limited by raw material, some parts of magnesium carbonate manufacturers were not put into operation. What’s more, the resources stock did not form the size of the economy. It leaded the inextricable origin problems. In recent years, Chinese industry got very fast development and can provided more resources. It solves the problems of source of feed. In addition, it speeds up the process of magnesium carbonate industrialization.
At present, our magnesium carbonate is in a fledging period. However, the development is rapid.
