Global Activated Alumina Market to Reach US$ 1,543.4 Million by 2032, Fueled by Increasing Demand for Water Treatment Solutions

April 03, 2023 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “­­Activated Alumina Market Report by Application (Catalysts, Desiccant, Absorbent, and Others), End-Use Industry (Water Treatment, Pharmaceutical, Textile, Oil & Gas, Chemical, and Others), Form (Powder, Beads), Mesh Size (80-150 Mesh, 150-300 Mesh, Above 300 Mesh), and Region 2024-2032,” the global activated alumina market size reached US$ 1,054.8 Million in 2023. Activated alumina is a granular form of aluminum oxide widely used as catalysts, adsorbents, and desiccants in various industrial applications. It is made by heating aluminum hydroxide at high temperatures to remove the water molecules and create a highly porous material with a large surface area. This, in turn, facilitates the adsorption of water and other gases, promoting its usage as a desiccant and for the purification of liquids and gases. Apart from this, it exhibits resistance to abrasion and thermal shocks, does not shrink, swell or disintegrate upon immersion in water, and can sustain extreme conditions, such as high temperatures and acidic or alkaline environments. As a result, activated alumina is extensively applied to produce catalysts and as a support material for various catalysts.

Global Activated Alumina Market Trends:

The key factor driving the activated alumina market growth is the rising demand for clean drinking water and the extensive product application in water treatment solutions and reverse osmosis (RO) membrane technology. Moreover, the widespread product adoption in the purification of lithium, which is a common element found in various industries, such as glass, ceramics, lubricating greases, batteries, and air treatment, is presenting remunerative growth opportunities for the market. Besides this, the increasing use of activated alumina bio-ceramics across the healthcare industry as a viable alternative to metal alloys for surgical and dental implants due to their anti-corrosion properties, low friction, and high durability are contributing to the market growth. In addition to this, the growing product employment in refining and petrochemical applications and the escalating demand for high-purity alumina from the pharmaceutical, automotive, and electronics industries due to their favorable chemical and physical properties are creating a positive outlook for the market. Furthermore, innovative technological advancements in the production of activated alumina and ongoing research and development (R&D) activities, combined with expanding product utilization as an adsorbent and desiccant in the food and beverage (F&B) and aerospace sectors, are aiding in market expansion. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 1,543.4 Million by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 4.2% during 2024-2032.
