It is used in the ceramic industry to enhance thermal conductivity. Advanced global ceramic market size may surpass USD 130 billion by 2025 which could lead to boost for aluminum chemicals market size. The product is also used as abrasives in manufacturing refractories owing to its resistance to acids and bases at high temperatures.

Hall-Heroult process is primarily employed for industrial production of pure metal from alumina. The metal owing to its properties of anti-corrosion, light weight and strength find wide application including automotive, aerospace, construction, packaging, food and beverage industries. Alumina is accepted as a biomaterial and can be used as implants in crucial surgeries. The product also finds application in hemodialysis and making of dental cements. Growing health concerns and advancement in medical science is likely to increase implant market, thereby driving aluminum chemicals market size.

Aluminum chemicals find application in water treatment industries. They are used as coagulant and flocculating agents owing to their multi charged poly nuclear and enhanced adsorption characteristics. The products find preference in water treatment industries as they are able to perform over wide range of water temperature and pH values and ability to generate lower chemical residues. Global water treatment market size is projected to surpass USD 85 billion by 2025 which may favor industry growth and positively influence aluminum chemicals market size.

Aluminum hydroxide finds application in polymer industry owing to its fire-retardant property and ability to withstand high temperatures. It is used as a smoke suppressant in polymers including rubber, PVC, polyesters and acrylics. The product exists as a naturally occurring mineral named gibbsite. It is also known as hydrargillite which is used as a feedstock for product derived compounds.

The product is also used in the pharmaceutical industry as an antacid. It aids in acidity reduction which left unattended could lead to symptoms exhibiting dyspepsia, ulcer and heartburn. Changing lifestyle and food habits combined with rising concerns of medication would lead to rise in demand for such medications. Global antacid market is likely to exceed USD 18 billion by 2025 driving aluminum chemicals market demand positively.

Aluminum chemicals including oxides, hydrides and alloys find application in chemical industry as catalysts. The products are used in transformation of chemicals owing to their property in chromatography and use as Lewis acids.

Aluminum Nickel Catalyst are used in production of oil and gas refinery process, insecticides intermediates and rubber additives owing to their high catalytic performance in hydrogenation reactions. These catalysts can retain their properties for enhanced period and can reactivated thereby providing cost effective solutions. Application of triethylaluminium include production of fatty alcohols using oligomerization process and as reducing and alkylating agents.

These products also find application in Zeiger-Natta Catalysis owing to their property to scavenge water and oxygen. Global catalyst market is likely to surpass USD 34.05 billion by 2025 thereby driving the aluminum chemicals market share.

Aluminum phosphide market is expected to grow over the forecasted timeframe owing to its application in semi-conductors and agrochemical industry. The product find application in the agricultural business as fumigant and pesticide. Global agrochemical market is projected to surpass USD 250 billion by 2025 and thereby positively influencing aluminum chemicals market size.

Aluminum chemicals are hazardous and require trained professionals to be applied when used in industries. The products might be poisonous in nature depending on composition and when inhaled in powder form is likely to cause respiratory problems. They can also case irritation when in contact with bare skin.  These factors may restrict the market size.

Europe led by Europe led by UK, France, Italy and Germany aluminum chemicals market size is projected to grow over forecasted time frame. Strict environmental regulations regarding sewage water disposition would likely to drive regional product demand.

North America led by Canada, Mexico and the U.S. aluminum chemicals market size should witness a significant growth during forecasted period owing to growth in oil and gas sector. Planned investment of over USD 70 billion by the U.S. for shale exploration may favor market size owing to its application oil and gas refineries.

Asia Pacific led by Japan, India and China market size is likely to grow over the forecast timeframe. Rising demand for plastic, automobiles and electronic products would likely drive regional product demand.
