Aluminum chloride hexahydrate is white to pale in color crystalline powder, which is stable at room temperature. However, it may decompose when it is exposed to moist air or water. According to Oxford University Chemical Safety data, aluminum chloride hexahydrate has a melting point of 1000C. It is used to treat hyperhidrosis, which is excessive sweating. It works as an antiperspirant that works by affecting the sweat producing cells. It is easily soluble in water, ether, ethanol, chloroform, propylene glycol, and ethanol.  It is predominantly used in metal processing and pharmaceutical industries for the production of aluminum metal, as a catalyst in chemical reactions. Moreover, it is also used in water treatment plants. Some studies claim that aluminum chloride hexahydrate has carcinogen properties that would cause breast cancer. However, these claims have not been validated due to ample proof.

Market Outlook

Global aluminum chloride hexahydrate market size is expected to witness significant growth, owing to increasing demand for treated water during the forecast period (2019-2027). For instance, in 2016, around 49,922 MT of aluminum chloride hexahydrate was consumed by the water treatment industry, which is around 59% of consumption. Moreover, increasing demand for aluminum chloride hexahydrate from the global pharmaceutical industry is expected to drive the market growth. However,
