There are several potential markets of magnesium hydroxide to be exploited in China.
First one is flue gas desulfurization and sewage treatment. Magnesium hydroxide plays an important role of removing flue gas sulfur dioxide, wastewater decolorization and deodorization, adsorbing of heavy metals. Developed countries 60% of the magnesium hydroxide market consumption in this area. But in China, flue gas desulfurization mainly adopts the lime desulfurization method, except the better method of magnesium hydroxide desulfurization. Based on the low level of urban sewage treatment, magnesium hydroxide has great consumption potential.
Second one is inorganic flame retardant products. Because it can inhibit the toxic and harmful gas generated in combustion, the proportion is above 55% in developed country, but only 7% in China. By the way, magnesium hydroxide is the main kind of Inorganic flame retardants. At present, organic flame retardants is the main flame retardant in China, the high-end magnesium hydroxide flame retardant are depend on import. According to customs statistics, China’s imports of magnesium hydroxide flame retardant is almost 10000 tons per year, import volume to grow by an average speed of 10% ~ 15%. Totally speaking, magnesium hydroxide flame retardant has a big development space in China.
