Top 13 Aluminum Oxide Companies in the World

The global aluminum oxide market size reached US$ 6.0 Billion in 2023. The market is primarily driven by the increasing use of aluminum oxide to remove toxic pollutants due to the rising environmental pollutants. In addition, the rising product adoption in bearings of hip replacements, bionic implants, tissue reinforcements, dental crowns, prosthetic eye substitutes, abutments, bridges, and other dental implants represent another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, the high melting and boiling points and the excellent thermal resistive properties of aluminum oxide are accelerating its sales to manufacture high-temperature furnace insulations and electrical insulators.

As per the analysis by IMARC Group, the top aluminum oxide companies are collaborating and forming alliances to focus on commercialization and large-scale production. They are also investing in research and development activities to develop new applications for aluminum oxide, such as in the automotive and aerospace industries. Additionally, they are working on increasing their production capacities, enhancing efficiency and reducing environmental impact. For instance, in June 2022, Alcoa announced a USD 51 Million project to increase production capacity at its plant in Mosjoen, Norway. With this investment, the company wants to increase to 214,000 Tons by the end of 2026. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 9.2 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.8% during 2024-2032.
