Global Activated Alumina Market to Reach US$ 1,333.5 Million by 2028, Bolstered by Rising Application in Water Treatment

September 06, 2022 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled Activated Alumina Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028," the global activated alumina market reached a value of US$ 1,006.5 Million in 2022. Activated alumina is a highly adsorptive, permeable, dry, or granular form of aluminium oxide (Al2O3) chemical, which is extensively used as a desiccant, absorbent, and catalyst. It offers various benefits, such as superior surface-area-to-weight ratio, low abrasion, low-pressure drops, better crush strength, exceptional sorption capacity, and high stability over a wide pH range. Along with this, activated alumina comprises a strong affinity and resistance to thermal shocks, does not disintegrate upon immersion in water, and can be regenerated through heated compressed air in high-temperature or alkaline environments. Based on these properties, activated alumina finds extensive applications in pneumatic operations, bioceramics, water treatment, and charging materials in fore line traps.

Global Activated Alumina Market Trends:

The widespread adoption of activated alumina across various industrial verticals can be attributed to the increasing need for porous chemical compounds in the form of fluoride absorbents, catalysts and desiccants. In line with this, the growing demand for decontaminated water has prompted governments of several countries to promote the uptake of activated alumina for water treatment purposes, which is acting as another growth-inducing factor. These compounds are widely used as absorbents and point-of-use devices, which aid in absorbing contaminates instead of filtering them. Moreover, the extensive activated alumina usage in vacuum systems, food preservatives, catalysis, batteries, glass, lubricating greases, air treatment, and lithium purification is contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, activated alumina is corrosion resistant and durable in nature; therefore, it finds extensive usage in bone and dental implant manufacturing. Other factors, such as escalating product utilization in refinery projects, growing awareness amongst manufacturers regarding its various benefits, and ongoing research and development (R&D) activities, are creating a positive outlook for the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 1,333.5 Million by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 4.3% during 2023-2028.
