The high purity magnesium oxide is a kind of high-end magnesium oxide. It has good alkali resistance, electrical insulating property and photopermeability. It also widely used in the aspects of medicine, food, silicon steel, thermal conductive plastics, optical glass, analytical reagent and so on. At present, the domestic magnesium oxide exists very large gap with the foreign in manufacturing technique and large scale. Therefore, the high-end product still depends on the overseas. However, the local magnesium oxide suppliers mainly produce some low-and-medium-grade products. These products need to upgrade. So, striving to develop domestic magnesium oxide, transformation and upgrading, optimizing structure and sustainable development become the main task.
Passes through several dozens years development, although the development of demostic magnesium oxide make great progress, it still has a gap compare with developed countries. For instance, excess production capacity of traditional products, the great gap of high-end products, not advanced enough for manufacturing technique, etc. Looking at the industry as a whole, the science and technology input is on the low state and the ability forward-looking original innovation is not strong. Therefore, it is very few core technology to reach international advanced level.
The 13th Five Year Plan is the critical period to upgrade and step into powerful manufacturing country for domestic magnesium oxide industry. This industry is facing complicated and rigorous situation. During this time, along with some factors, magnesium oxide suppliers’ market demand will still keep a rapid growth. These factors include high-end industry, consumption upgrade and so on.
