Definition of Market/Industry:

Alumina trihydrate (ATH) is a non-corrosive and non-toxic chemical compound that is widely used as a flame retardant and smoke suppressant in various elastomeric applications due to its excellent thermodynamic properties. It effectively absorbs heat and releases water which reduces the risk of fire and prevents oxygen from reaching the flame. It has four polymorphs namely gibbsite, doyleite, bayerite, and nordstrandite. Alumina trihydrate is a highly functional and versatile pigment and beneficial in several coatings, adhesives, inks, caulks, and sealant applications.

To know the latest trends and insights prevalent in this market, click the link below:


Growing demand for alumina trihydrate from the pharmaceutical industry in the formulation of antacid medicine is expected to foster market growth. Additionally, rising demand for alumina trihydrate from water treatment applications where it acts as flocculants in water purification is also expected to foster market growth.

Market Opportunities:

Increasing usage of alumina trihydrate in the production of batteries as alumina trihydrate can be recycled to produce new aluminum anode, which makes the battery rechargeable. Therefore, the usage of alumina trihydrate in the li-ion batteries can open new doors of opportunity to the market of alumina trihydrate. 

Market Restraints:

Growing usage of magnesium hydroxide as an alternative to alumina trihydrate from the pharmaceutical industry in the preparation of antacid formulation as it effectively reduces stomach acid and increases water in the intestine. This factor is expected to hinder the market growth of Alumina trihydrate.

Market Trends: Trend 1:

The growing application of alumina trihydrate-based Adjuvants in vaccines is a major trend that has been observed in the market. Alumina trihydrate adjuvants compose has a mechanism of the repository effect, pro-phagocytic effect, and activation of pro-inflammatory NLRP3 (NOD-, LRR- and pyrin domain-containing protein 3) NLRP3 is expected to offer enormous growth opportunity to the market. 

Trend 2:

Rising usage of alumina trihydrate in phosphate binders is gaining popularity and traction in the market. Phosphate binders bind phosphate in the blood which limits its circulation with blood. Therefore, the rising usage of Alumina trihydrate phosphate binders for the treatment of hyperphosphatemia is projected to offer a lucrative growth opportunity to the market.
