is an anhydrous inorganic salt in crystalline solid form composed of magnesium, oxygen, and sulfur. Magnesium sulfate shows very high solubility in water. Magnesium sulfate is odorless. Magnesium sulfate can be prepared artificially by neutralizing sulfuric acid with magnesium carbonate or oxide to obtain the heptahydrate form, but it is usually obtained directly from natural sources. Scientifically magnesium sulfate is represented by molecular formula MgSO4. Magnesium sulfate is also commonly known as Epsom salt (heptahydrate) or english salt, or bitter salt. Magnesium sulfate can also be found in hydrated forms broadly classified as monohydrate and heptahydrate. The monohydrate and heptahydrate forms contain one and seven H2O molecules, respectively. MgSO4 is commonly encountered as the heptahydrate sulfate mineral epsomite. It is usually called as Epsom salt.
Geographically Asia-Pacific dominated
global Magnesium Sulfate market
due to higher applications of fertilizers and pesticides into agricultural and horticultural applications in the region. Asia-Pacific was followed by North America and Europe as second and third largest regional market for magnesium sulfate . Asia Pacific is projected to have fastest growth, owing to rapidly increasing population leading to higher demand for greater quantity of food from countries such as China and India, as a result of increasing population in these countries. As fertilizer consumption is increasing to achieve higher yield, as a result consumption of magnesium sulfate is also increasing in these countries.
