Market Outlook

Epsom salts is originally discovered in “Epsom” a town in England, but now it is commercially produced across the world. Epsom salts are the polyatomic ionic compound commonly known as bath salts. The manufacturing of Epsom salts includes magnesium carbonate and sulfuric acid. When magnesium carbonate dissolves in sulfuric acid, it gives magnesium sulfate heptahydrate commonly known as Epsom salts. Magnesium sulfate heptahydrate is bonded with seven water molecules. These water molecules are loosely bonded with magnesium sulfate and when heated at 250 degree Celsius these water molecules get separate which gives anhydrous magnesium sulfate or anhydrous Epsom salts. Both hydrous and anhydrous form of Epsom salts is commercially produced. Growing consumer’s health awareness is expected to boost the demand for the Epsom salts during the forecast period.
