Activated alumina Industry continues to draw significant commercial interest. New area of application has fuelled the global activated alumina market. Market Research Future (MRFR) reports that the global activated alumina market is set to capture 5.9% CAGR during the forecast period 2022 to 2030.

Activated alumina hold superior desiccant properties and finds widespread application in filtering of selenium, arsenic and fluoride elements. Its is a popular industrial material, with application spanning across sectors such as plastic, healthcare, oil and gas, water purification, etc. The material is primarily used as a bio-ceramic, desiccant, fluoride and catalyst. End user sectors are posting a stronger demand for activated alumina prompting supplier to expand capacity. In addition, the market is also receiving impetus from increased need for water purification has led to development of treatment facilities. Activates alumina is viewed as a highly effective water purifier and thereby is used extensively in the water treatment facilities. As an adsorbent, activated alumina offers excellent filtration harmful substances such as fluoride from water. Application of activated alumina is likely to increase in pharmaceuticals, plastics and oil & gas in the forthcoming years. Such factors are likely to foster the activated alumina industry during the forecast period.

Potential and Pitfalls

With the growing demand from the end-use industries such as oil and gas, water treatment plants, and healthcare, the global market for activated alumina is likely to boost over the assessment period. The increasing need for safe and clean water has also resulted in rising investment in water treatment facilities which is further contributing to the growth of Activated Alumina Market Industry. The water is highly used in water treatment facilities as an absorbent to remove fluoride and other harmful substances. With growing population, water pollution is increasing which is generating the need for water purification. The use of activated alumina is seen as an effective way to purify water, thus fueling the market growth over the review period.

On the flip side, high regeneration cost in some of the end-use segments and threat from substitutes are considered to retard the market growth in the coming years. Also, activated alumina filters cost high and can be used one time. When the concentration of absorbed particles increases in the filter, it has to be discarded, and the frequency to replacement depends on the amount of water which passes through the filter. Such factors are likely to inhibit the market growth.
