Anhydrous Aluminum Chloride Market by Form (Granule, Powder), Application (Dyes & Pigments, Pesticide, Pharmaceuticals & Cosmetics, Hydrocarbon Resins, Fumed Alumina, Electrolytic Production of Aluminum, Titanium Dioxide), Region-Global Forecast to 2022
“The anhydrous aluminum chloride market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.19% from 2017 to 2022.”
The anhydrous aluminum chloride market is estimated to be USD 772.8 million in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 948.6 million by 2022, at a CAGR of 4.19% from 2017 to 2022. This growth is mainly driven by the increased use of anhydrous aluminum chloride in various applications, such as dyes and pigments, pesticides, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, hydrocarbon resins, and fumed alumina. The fluctuating price of raw materials acts as a restraint to the growth of the anhydrous aluminum chloride market.
“Based on form, the granular segment of the anhydrous aluminum chloride market is projected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period.”
The granular form segment is the fastest-growing segment of the anhydrous aluminum chloride market. The demand for granular anhydrous aluminum chloride is primarily driven by its characteristics, such as excellent flow properties, particle size uniformity, small surface area, and increased compressibility.
“Based on application, the dyes and pigments segment is projected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period.”
The dyes and pigments segment is the fastest-growing application segment of the anhydrous aluminum chloride market. Anhydrous aluminum chloride is used as a catalyst to derive major dye intermediates, such as anthraquinone, phthalocyanine green, ethylbenzene, and metaphenoxy benzaldehyde. The demand for dyes and pigments is driven by their increasing use in textiles, printing inks, plastics, and paints & coatings.
“China is the largest and the fastest-growing market for anhydrous aluminum chloride in APAC as well as globally.”
China is the largest and the fastest-growing market for anhydrous aluminum chloride in APAC as well as globally.
