Demand Analysis of Metal Magnesium, 2015-2021 vs. Market Outlook 2022-2032

According to Fact.MR- a market research and competitive intelligence provider- the global market for metal magnesium expanded at a compound annual growth rate of 4% between 2015 and 2021. Asia-Pacific was the dominant regional market during this time and held a significant share of global demand.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a substantial impact on the metal magnesium market. This imposed complete stoppage to the various raw material mining, supply chains and production facilities. As a result of this, several industries like the automotive, aircraft, building and metal processing faced difficulties to sustain their operations.

The manufacturing outputs also reduced due to the sudden closure of the production units. This greatly affected the GDP. As of 2020, all the top automotive producing countries, including the United States China, India, Germany,  Mexico, and Japan saw a drop in production of 19%, 2%, 24%, 21%, and 17%, respectively, from the previous year, 2019.

Aluminum alloys and titanium are growing in demand in aerospace parts production, which will increase metal magnesium's demand over the forecast period. In the near future, the aerospace, chemical, medical, and healthcare industries are expected to drive the growth of the magnesium metal market.

Packaging is projected to experience rapid growth globally in the near term. In turn, this will increase the demand for metal magnesium. From 2022 to 2032, the industry is likely to surge 1.6x.

What are the specific drivers of the Metal Magnesium Market?

Burgeoning Production of Aerospace Components to Widen Metal Magnesium Outreach

The U.S. is one of the dominant aerospace manufacturers with established players, such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and United Technologies. As per the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, the U.S. recorded 1,551 aircraft deliveries in 2020 compared to 1,771 deliveries in 2019.

With the rising demand for aluminum alloys and titanium in aerospace parts production, metal magnesium is likely to witness growing demand over the forecast period. A growing number of aerospace and automotive industries are adopting magnesium and aluminum alloys as a result of their high strength-to-weight ratio, stiffness-to-weight ratio, machinability, and lightweight properties.

Increased demand for Titanium will accelerate the Growth 

The manufacturing of metallic titanium involves the use of magnesium. Alloys of titanium are used in many industries, including automotive, aerospace and medicine. Magnesium metal's market growth will be accelerated by the upsurge in titanium production around the globe. In addition to the growth of titanium, magnesium metal market growth is expected to be accelerated by the rising demand from aerospace, chemicals, medical, and healthcare industries.

Globally, 58 million passenger cars and 21.78 million commercial vehicles were produced in 2021, according to OICA. With this surge in demand, the demand for titanium also increased; in turn, this helped the metal magnesium market to boost up. These industries are expected to experience rapid growth during the forecast period, thus propelling market growth.

The packaging industry to provide great opportunities for this market to propel

Over the forecast period, the packaging industry is expected to witness rapid growth around the globe. This in turn will increase the demand in the metal magnesium market too.

The global packaging market accounted for $841 billion in 2017, representing a 2.7% increase from 2016 at constant prices, according to ALL4PACK Emballage Paris. Based on a CAGR of 2.95%, the global packaging market value reached US$ 866 billion in 2018, and there may be a possibility for the market to reach US$ 981 billion in 2022 and US$ 1,344 billion in 2032.
