Activated Alumina Market: Snapshot

Activated alumina is prominently used as a reaction catalyst, in the oil and gas sector, and for the treatment of water. Growing investments in water treatment infrastructure and the ever-rising demand for oil and gas have been fueling the demand for activated alumina over the past few years. These trends are expected to continue during the forecast period, driving the market to expand at a CAGR of 4.2% between 2016 and 2024. The sales of activated alumina amounted to US$770.6 mn in 2015 and are projected to be worth US$1,108.9 mn by 2024.

However, Transparency Market Research states that the threat from substitutes and the high regeneration cost in some of the end-use segments are likely to affect market growth. On the other hand, product improvement and the exploration of new end users are projected to provide lucrative growth opportunities for players in the activated alumina market.

Asia Pacific Activated Alumina Market Demonstrates Impressive Growth

Asia Pacific accounted for more than 30% of the global activated alumina market in 2015, emerging as the leading regional segment that year. The increasing demand for activated alumina in the oil and gas and water treatment industries and a rise in the adoption of activated alumina in sulfur recovery units have been the prominent factors driving the market in Asia Pacific.

The activated alumina markets in North America and Europe are anticipated to exhibit stable growth during the forecast period. In terms of country, the U.S. constituted a significant share of the global activated alumina market in 2015. Excess fluorine in water has been a major concern in the U.S and more than 60% of the total population in the country consumes fluoridated water. Activated alumina is employed in point-of-use or point-of-entry water treatment devices to remove excess fluorine in water. An increase in the production of oil and gas in the country is also estimated to drive the demand for activated alumina in the U.S.
