Aluminum Chlorohydrate Market Analysis
Aluminum Chlorohydrate Market, by type (Solid and Liquid), by Application (Cosmetics, Water Treatment, Pharmaceutical, and Others (Chemical)) – Size, Share, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2018 – 2025
Aluminum chlorohydrate is an inorganic polymer and group of specific aluminum salts, which has general formula AlnCl(3n-m)(OH)m. Aluminum chlorohydrate is an odorless, colorless, and light yellow crystalline solid or powder.
When aluminum chlorohydrate is applied on body the salts dissolves in the sweat or moisture in the underarm. The dissolved a substance, which forms a gel creates a temporary plug in sweat gland that reducing specific amount of the sweat on skin surface.
Furthermore, aluminum chlorohydrates are antimicrobial agents used as component in personal hygiene products, which are designed to control and reduce unpleasant odors safely and efficiently. In addition, aluminum chloride antiperspirant and deodorant brands are easily available in the market in the form of sprays, sticks and creams etc.
Increasing demand for aluminum salts as an active antiperspirant agent in commercial underarm cosmetic products is expected to be a major factor driving growth of the global aluminum chlorohydrate market over the forecast period (2018 - 2025). Furthermore, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considers the use of aluminum chlorohydrate in antiperspirants are effective, safe, and permitted in concentration up to 25%. There is no scientific evidence that aluminum chlorohydrate compound in antiperspirants can cause Brest cancer and Alzheimer's disease.
Increasing number of water treatment plants due to increasing government initiatives for water treatment is expected to positively impact growth of the aluminum chlorohydrate market, owing to use of aluminum chlorohydrate in water treatment as a coagulant to remove dissolved organic matter and colloidal particles, which are present in water. For instance, according to the Federal and Government of British Columbia, the federal government invested fund of around US$ 450.1 million in municipalities for water and wastewater treatment across the British Columbia in 2017.
A major restraining factor for growth of the market is availability of alternatives such as aluminum chloride,aluminum dichlorohydrate, and aluminum zirconium chlorohydrate complexes.
Key players operating in the global aluminum chlorohydrate market include Chemtrade Logistics Inc., Kemira, USALCO, Holland Company, Zhejiang NetSun Co., Ltd., Parchem fine & specialty chemicals, GEO, and Innova Corporate.
Key players are strategically investing in mergers and acquisitions to enhance their market share and retain leading position in the market.
