$ 1499


According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Indian Aluminium Powder Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023”, the Indian aluminium powder consumption reached a volume of 32,162 Tons in 2017.  Aluminium is a lightweight, ductile, non-magnetic, malleable metallic element with a soft finish. Over the years, aluminium has been available in different forms which include aluminium sulphate, alum, aluminium powder, etc. Amongst these, aluminium powder is prepared by exposing molten aluminium metal to a compressed gas jet. After this, the combination is converted into fine droplets which are later solidified and collected. The gathered powder is subsequently graded according to the size of the particles. This powder is combustible in nature, light in weight, odourless, highly flammable and silvery-white to grey in colour. The aluminium powder market in India has been witnessing a positive growth in recent years led by increasing usage of aluminium powder in technological industries as well as its easy availability and affordability.

In India, aluminium powder is being used for various purposes across numerous industries which include metallurgy, chemicals, paints & pigments, explosives, construction and others. This is one of the major factors which has been supporting the growth of the aluminium powder in India. Additionally, there has been an increase in the use of aluminium powder for the production of coating paints which has further propelled its demand across the automotive industry. Apart from this, aluminium powder is corrosion-resistant and can be easily recycled owing to which it becomes a highly durable product with a longer lifespan as compared to other metals. As aluminium powder is effective in reflecting light, it is also being increasingly used in the form of pigments. These are some of the other factors which have been positively influencing the growth of the Indian aluminium powder market. Looking forward, the consumption volume is projected to reach 46,877 Tons by 2023, expanding at a CAGR of more than 6% during 2018-2023.
