The global Epsom Salt Market size was calculated to be USD 1.7 billion in 2021, and it is foreseen that it will reach USD 3.5 billion by 2027 at a CAGR of about 3% during the foreseen period. As consumer health awareness increases, the call for Epsom salt is touted to increase during the estimated period.
Epsom salt was originally found in the English city of "Epsom", but is now commercially produced worldwide. Epsom salts are polyatomic ionic compounds commonly known as bath salts. Epsom salt preparation includes magnesium carbonate and sulfuric acid. When magnesium carbonate dissolves in sulfuric acid, it provides a magnesium sulfate hydrate, commonly known as the Epsom salt. Magnesium sulfate heptahydrate is combined with seven water molecules. These water molecules are loosely bound with magnesium sulfate, and when heated to 250 degrees Celsius, these water molecules separate to give anhydrous magnesium sulfate or anhydrous Epsom salts. Both the hydrated and anhydrous forms of the Epsom salts are produced commercially.
With the growing awareness of the benefits of Epsom salt among consumers around the world, this market is expected to be multiplied in the near future.

As constipation becomes a common problem, everyone wants to get rid of it. Magnesium and sulfate are the two main components of Epsom salt and are considered healing minerals. Magnesium helps regulate enzyme activity and plays an important role in regulating various bodily functions, from muscle control and electrical stimulation to energy production and the elimination of harmful toxins. However, sulfate plays an important role in biological processes, such as protein formation in the joints, brain tissue formation, drug detoxification, and environmental pollutants, and helps to release digestive enzymes released by the pancreas. Using Epsom salt is considered a cost-effective means of mitigating the risk of acute and chronic health problems. Therefore, Epsom salt manufacturers need to advertise their products to constipation patients that act as laxatives to relieve constipation. In the textile industry, this product is used as a component of ink and textile dye fixatives for the blackening of leather. Its use is increasing in the water treatment industry for water treatment by removing phosphate and agglomeration from industrial and municipal wastewater. Along with rapid urbanization, strong industrialization increases the need for water purification, the iron sulfate hydrate market thriving within an expected period. Additionally, new players looking to invest in the market should focus on hydrated Epsom salts, as demand for hydrated Epsom salts is expected to increase in pharmaceutical grades to manufacture liver detoxification drugs. Taking into account the above factors, the Epsom salt market is expected to grow positively during the outlook period.
