The Global Aluminum Oxide Market is estimated to be valued at USD 70,511.7 Million by 2030 and record a CAGR of over 6.0% during the forecast period. Aluminum oxide is available in different purity grades—high-purity and low-purity aluminum oxide. High-purity aluminum oxide, which is often labeled as high-purity alumina, is a white, granular chemical manufactured commercially either by using aluminous feedstock or by treating aluminum with specific chemicals. Some of the processes used to produce high-purity alumina include thermal decomposition, alkoxide, modified Bayer, and choline hydrolysis. The demand for high-purity alumina is mainly driven by its increasing application in lithium-ion batteries, plasma display screen, LED lighting, photovoltaic cells, semiconductors, electric cars, optical lenses, smartphone sapphire glasses, sodium lamps, and others.
For instance, the 4N, 5N, and 6N grades of high-purity alumina are significantly used in lithium-ion batteries. High-purity alumina-coated lithium-ion batteries are efficient and safer as compared to traditional batteries due to their high resistance towards high-temperature incursions. Furthermore, lithium-ion batteries coated with high-purity alumina possess high battery discharge rate, long life cycle, and low self-discharge rate. These advantages of high-purity alumina make it a favorable material of choice for battery separator coatings. The rising demand for lithium-ion batteries is due to its numerous short duration applications, including renewable integration and peak load management. Thus, the increasing demand in the application of high-purity alumina in the electrical and electronics industry is expected to boost the demand for aluminum oxide market in the forecast period.
However, according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), aluminum oxide is not classified as a human carcinogen, although aluminum production is classified as carcinogenic to humans. The labors and workforces that are continuously exposed to dust or particles containing aluminum have witnessed severe pulmonic effects such as emphysema, pneumothorax, and fibrosis. Inhalation of alumina for a short term can cause upper respiratory tract, and eye irritation, however, long-term exposure and inhalation may severely affect the central nervous system. Thus, the health risk due to exposure of aluminum oxide in the application and end use industries is expected to hamper the aluminum oxide market in the forecast period.
According to MRFR analysis, the global aluminum oxide market has been segmented based on structural form, end use, purity, and region.
By structural form, the global aluminum oxide market has been categorized into nanoparticles, powder, pellets, tablets, sputtering targets. Among these, the powder segment accounted for the largest share of over 35% by value in 2018, predominantly due to the large-scale adoption in water treatment and purification processes. The powder segment is expected to register a CAGR of over 5.0% during the forecast period.
On the basis of end use, the global aluminum oxide market has been classified into medical, pharmaceuticals, industrial manufacturing, electronics, and others. The electronics segment accounted for the largest share by value in 2018 due to the high demand for aluminum oxide in the manufacturing electronic devices, appliances, and equipment. The increasing application of aluminum oxide in lithium ion batteries, semiconductors, plasma display screen, LED lighting, phosphor, photovoltaic cells, and optical lenses is expected to boost the growth of the segment during the forecast period.
By purity, the global aluminum oxide market has been categorized into 2N (99%) , 3N (99.9%), 4N (99.99%), 5N (99.999%), 6N (99.9999%). Among these, the 4N (99.99%) segment accounted for the largest share of over 45% by value in 2018 predominantly due to the growing medical industry across the globe coupled with the growing aging population, increasing awareness pertaining to health, and high budget allocations for the medical and pharmaceutical sectors.
