08 Apr 2014

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "China Magnesium and Magnesium Alloy Industry Report,2013-2016" report to their offering.

Chinese primary magnesium is mainly used for the production of magnesium alloy and casting as well as metal reduction, in which magnesium alloy consumes more than 60% of primary magnesium. This proportion will continue to expand in the future, mainly because magnesium alloy is the lightest metal in practical use, with a specific gravity which is ? of iron's and 2/3 of aluminum's, conforms to the trend that automobiles tend to be lightweight and 3C products turn to be compact and small.

Given the broad application prospect of magnesium alloy, Ningxia Hui-Ye Magnesium Marketing, Regal Magnesium, Nanjing Yunhai Special Metals and Shanxi Yinguang have invested in the construction of magnesium alloy projects in recent years.

Ningxia Hui-Ye Magnesium Marketing: The company built a 600,000 sets / a magnesium alloy electric bicycle wheel production line in 2013 to fill the gap of magnesium alloy casting production in Ningxia.

Regal Magnesium: The Phase I of the "50,000 tons / a Magnesium Alloy Transformation and Expansion Project" commenced in May 2013. After the project is completed, the company will be able to produce 21,000 tons of middle refined magnesium and 30,000 tons of magnesium alloy each year.

Wutai Yunhai Magnesium: In 2010-2015, The company will carry out 50,000-ton High Performance Magnesium Alloy Technology Project, 20,000-ton Magnesium Alloy Scrap Recycling Project and 3,000-ton Magnesium Alloy Casting Construction Project.

Shanxi Yinguang Magnesium Industry: The company's first forged magnesium wheel mass production line was put into operation in 2013 with the annual output of about 500,000.
