Magnesium oxide is an important branch of inorganic chemical magnesium salt series. As a basic chemical raw materials, it has a broad application field. With the development of science and technology, many features of magnesium oxide are recognized by people. It has the characteristics which can be used in the new field of science and industry, becoming indispensable in the construction of the national economy basic chemical raw materials and new materials. Such as nano magnesium oxide, it is honored as new material in the 21st century.
Magnesium oxide industry is one of the fastest growing industry in recent 10 years. 10 years ago, there are few magnesium oxide manufacturers, lees than 20 enterprises with annual capacity of 4000 t. With the rapid development of national economy, the increasing demand promoted the development of the magnesium oxide production, result in the expanding capacity. Incomplete statistics from the last 5 years show, light magnesium oxide production capacity has risen from 100000 tons to 900000 tons. Active magnesium oxide has risen from less than 3000 tons to 100000 tons. Synthesis magnesium oxide, production capacity has reached 1 million tons, without the low end light burned MGO.
Rubber industry is the largest number of using and adding magnesium oxide, accounted for about 60% of the total. By 2020, the rubber industry can basically growth of 20% a year, and there are more and more international first-class rubber companies set up in China. These provide a broad market space for domestic magnesium oxide development. Especially for light magnesium oxide, active magnesium oxide and pure magnesium oxide 99%, they have a good prospects.
