Summary Table of Contents Industry Coverage Methodology

Industry Trends

High purity alumina market size was valued at USD 1,798.1 million in 2020 and will grow at a CAGR of 15.1% from 2021 to 2027. The rapid rise in demand for the electronics and associated industries is expected to increase the demand for high purity alumina.
 

High Purity Alumina (HPA) is a high purity product form of Aluminum Oxide (Al2O3) and is extensively used in non-metallurgical applications. The HPA is used as a base fundamental material to manufacture substrates of sapphire, which has wide applications across multiple industry segments. It is used to produce a wide range of products such as scratch-resistant sapphire glasses for smartphones & smartwatches, plasma display screens, lithium-ion battery separators, LED lights, semiconductors, hybrid cars, sodium lamps, optical lenses, electric vehicles, and others.
 

High Purity Alumina Market Outlook

Value-added features such as reliability, durability, brightness, and low heat radiation have led to increasing adoption of LED-based lighting solutions, initiating an upward shift in the market. Supply deficit is observed in the high purity alumina market owing to extensive use of High Purity Alumina (HPA) products across different industry verticals. It is likely to be overcome by advancements in technology used to extract the product from aluminum clay resources.
 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the volume and revenue declined in 2020 but the drop in revenue is expected to recover and grow at a significant rate over the projected period. According to the Semiconductor Industry Association, China accounted for over half of the world’s semiconductor consumption. The reliance on China is impacting the global supply chain as the COVID-19 pandemic has affected both consumers and companies.
 

Furthermore, travel restrictions and factory closures pose a high risk due to dependency on a single location for critical products such as semiconductors. Industries have generally concentrated their operations at various geographic locations to minimize risks associated with a particular location. As high purity alumina is a critical element used in semiconductor manufacturing, slowdown in the semiconductor sector will negatively impact the high purity alumina market share.

In 2020, the hydrolysis process generated over USD 1 billion in HPA market. This is a widely preferred viable practice for HPA synthesis. After the alcohol addition to aluminum metal, high purity aluminum alkoxide is formed, which further aids in the synthesis of alumina. Lastly, the final product is further obtained through the calcination process. The hydrolysis has added advantage in terms of reduced operational costs as it can recover and reuse the acids, which are potentially wasted in the production process.
 

4N is expected to hold a dominant position in the product segment owing to its high use
