Driver 1

Rising demand for flame retardants from the construction industry and automotive industry is projected to serve as prime driver factors to the market growth. Moreover, growing implementation of strict rules and regulations regarding vehicular safety is further projected to propel the market growth of alumina trihydrate. Furthermore, rising demand for chemical compounds such as polyaluminum chloride, calcined alumina, aluminum sulfate, sodium aluminate, alumina nitrate, and zeolites is also projected to fuel the market growth of alumina trihydrate.

Driver 2

Increasing usage of alumina trihydrate as a substitute for titanium dioxide pigments in the paints and coatings industry as it is relatively inexpensive is projected to propel the market growth of alumina trihydrate. Moreover, the growing demand for alumina trihydrate from plastic, paper industry, and building and construction industry is further projected to boost the market growth of alumina trihydrate.

Statistics:

North America region held significant market share in the global Alumina Trihydrate market in 2018, accounting for 22.3% share in terms of volume.

Market Restraints

Restraint 1

Alumina trihydrate is less suitable for high-temperature as it gets rapidly decompose when the temperature exceeds 200°C. This factor is expected to limit its usage in an application where materials operate at high temperatures. Moreover, availability of substitute of Alumina trihydrates such as zinc hydroxystannate (ZHS), zinc stannate and magnesium hydroxide which are used as flame retardant because it has excellent flame retardancy and smoke suppression properties is further expected to hinder the market growth of alumina trihydrate.

Restraint 2

Limited flexibility and less mechanical property of the alumina trihydrate is also expected to hamper the market growth of the alumina trihydrate. Also, the alternative of alumina trihydrate is gaining demand as adhesives from paints and coating industry is further projected to hinder the market growth of alumina trihydrate.

Market Opportunities

Opportunity 1

Rising usage of alumina trihydrate to produce other chemical compounds such as aluminum fluoride, aluminum chloride, aluminum sulfate, and sodium aluminate. Their rising application across the various end-user industry is projected to offer immense growth opportunities to the market of alumina trihydrate over the forecast period. For instance, sodium aluminate is widely in water softening and removing dissolved silica and phosphates.

Opportunity 2

Alumina trihydrate is used as a raw material in producing Aluminium Fluoride. Growing usage of aluminum fluoride in the removal of magnesium in the refining of aluminum scrap is expected to stimulate market growth. Moreover, the rising demand for aluminum fluoride from the pharmaceutical industry for controlling sweet and other applications is also expected to propel the market growth over the forecast period.

Statistics:

For any segment information:

Among end-use industry, the chemical industry dominated the global alumina trihydrate market, valued at US$ 1,200 Million in 2018 and is forecast to reach a value of US$ 2,500 Million by 2027 at a CAGR of 8.0% between 2019 and 2027 

Market Trends/Key Takeaways

Trend 1

The increasing advent of nano technology with a polymer such as an alumina trihydrate with nanoclays, that reduce the negative impact on the performance of polymer additives and helps to improve the quality of non-halogenated flame retardant by making more efficient. This is expected to propel the market growth of alumina trihydrate over the forecast period.

Trend 2

Growing usage of alumina trihydrate in engineering plastic such as electronics, construction and automobile sectors, which is raising its demand for flame retardants is expected to foster the market growth of alumina trihydrate over the forecast timeframe. For instance, many manufacturers are adopting alumina trihydrate as a flame retardant in electronic products due to its non-toxicity and cost-effectiveness.

Alumina Trihydrate, also known as Alumina Hydrate/Hydrate Alumina, ATH (Aluminium Tri Hydroxide), Aluminum Hydroxide and Aluminium Hydrate is an odorless white powder. Although, it exhibits very low solubility in water, alumina trihydrate is amphoteric in nature, which means that it will dissolve in acid or a strong alkali. Alumina Trihydrate is majorly produced through the Bayer process where the bauxite (Aluminium Ore) is dissolved in sodium hydroxide at high temperatures. After the reaction, alumina trihydrate is removed/separated from the remaining solids. These remaining solids are highly toxic in nature and presents environmental issues.

Market Dynamics

Among end-use applications, use of Alumina Trihydrate in pharmaceutical industries is expected to gain traction during the forecast period. Alumina trihydrate is used in the formulation of antacid medicine which can be ingested in order to buffer the pH within the stomach. Therefore, significant growth in the pharmaceutical industry is expected to help drive the Alumina Trihydrate market growth. For instance, According to International Trade Association, China is the second largest pharmaceutical market worldwide and the pharmaceutical market of China was valued at US$ 108 billion in 2015, and is expected to reach US$ 167 billion by 2020, witnessing a CAGR of 9.1%. Moreover, China's total public and private healthcare expenditure was valued at US$ 640 billion in 2015, and expected to reach US$ 1.1 trillion by 2020.
