MAGNESIUM AVAILABILITY AND DEMAND 1978-1984
The magnesium industry will grow thru the 1980s. The most accelerated growth will come from magnesium's use in steel desulfurization and in die casting. It is expected that the automotive industry will be a significant part of this growth. Production capabilities will rise to meet the increase in demand through productivity improvements and expansion of existing facilities.
