According to Acumen Research and Consulting, the global Activated Alumina market is expected to grow at noteworthy CAGR around 5.2 % throughout the forecast period and reach around US$ 1.5 billion by 2026.

Activated Alumina is a dehydroxylation, dry granular chemical that eliminate the aluminum hydroxy ion of the group. The substance is a common form of alumina, which is very porous for filtration and adsorption. Adsorption is a chemical process in which substances adhere to but are not absorbed into the surface of other substances.

The report provides analysis of global Activated Alumina market for the period 2015-2026, wherein 2019 to 2026 is the forecast period and 2018 is considered as the base year.

Market Dynamics

The projected period is expected to propel the activated alumina market to stringent regulations concerning sodium, liquoride, hydrogen fluoride and fluorin contamination. Institutes like IARC and the World Health Organization (WHO) are monitoring and regulating standards for fluorine contamination in water. The alumina activated is widely utilized in the absorption from water of fluoride, sodium fluoride, hydrogen fluoride and fluorine impurities. The highly poreous and granular form of aluminum oxide is activated alumina. It is used in the oil & gas, water treatment and chemical manufacturing industries as desiccant, adsorbent, catalyst. The dehydroxylating aluminum hydroxide produces activated alumina. The high surface surface area of activated alumina ensures excellent adsorption. Activated alumina is one of the most common Claus catalysts. There are many catalytic sites; hydrogen sulfide and sulfur dioxide are thus absorbed during the Claus procedure to produce elementary sulfur. In the oil and gas industry, it is widely used as a dryer and adsorbent. It is also widely used when it comes to the removal of natural gas moisture, the elimination of sulfur compounds, the dehydration of high-acidity gas, ethanol dehydration, feedstock purification, paraffin separation, and stream sweetening.

Industry Insights

Activated alumina has various applications, such as its utilization for gas and liquid drying applications in the oil and gas industries. Different types of alumina activated for various products are used and are useful for different industry applications. In recent years, this capacity has contributed to increased demand for activated alumina. Because of its thermal, shock and abrasion resistance, the use of activated alumina grows. In the bone and dental implants health sector, activated alumina is now widely used, thereby increasing its demand over the forecast period.

As the population is growing, water pollution is growing, and water purification is also needed. The use of activated alumina as an efficient way to clean water is seen. Alumina can be regenerated and the costs of water purification are significantly reduced. Furthermore, support given to the use of activated alumina in water purification by the Environmental Protection Agency has led to the widespread use of this product. These factors are expected to combine to stimulate demand for purification of water using activated alumina, which in turn will boost demand for activated alumina during the forecast period.

Diverse governing bodies approve the use of activated alumina and can be used in accordance with required regulations and restrictions. Regulatory frameworks and agencies such as NIOSh, The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), 1976 (National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health), among others, have established directives for the storage and use of alumina activated for companies involved in the fabrication and utilization of alumina activated.

Fast growth in the fuel-activated alumina market for the water treatment infrastructure industry

One of the biggest global problems is the worldwide water scarcity. As the population around the world increases, the demand for water increases considerably. According to a United Nations report, the population of 1,8 billion is expected to live in areas with absolute water shortages by 2050, and governments around the world therefore invest in water treatment infrastructure and technologies to tackle this problem. The Chinese Government, for example, spends approximately US$ 110 billion each year to protect the environment and to control pollution, including waste water treatment. Some major contaminants in water streams are arsenic, lead and fluoride. Activated alumina helps to effectively remove these pollutants. As a result, the demand for activated alumina is projected to increase investments in waste water treatment and in water recycling in the near future.

Beads Segment to Govern the Market

The segment of beads was a major part of the global alumina activated market in 2018, in terms of form. Activated Alumina Beads are highly absorbent in various applications with high surface to mass ratio and are highly versed. These beads are widely used to remove impurities such as fluoride in water treatment applications. They are used to dehydrate compressed air and gasses like liquid petroleum gas (LPG) and compressed natural gas (CNG) for oil & gas applications. Due to the high demands of water treatment infrastructure in the developing economies, the beads sector are estimated to expand quickly.

Application Insights

In terms of application, a significant proportion of the world's activated alumina market is projected during the forecast period in the water treatment sector. From 2019 to 2027 the segment is expected to be significantly expanding. The oil & gas segment is expected to represent the dominant share of the market for activated alumina. During the forecast period, the gas dehydration sub-section for the oil & gas segment is projected to grow significantly. The alumina activated offers various characteristics, such as the high mass surface area and the highly porous structure. Due to the extensive use of the material in water treatment plants, demand for activated alumina products in the water treatment industry is expected to increase.

Regional Snapshots

As a result of the increasing investment in water treatment infrastructure, which can be attributed to an increasing level of industrialization and urbanization in emerging economies, including China, India and Japan, Asia-Pacific leads the activated aluminum market. The increasing demand for activated alumina in the region has led to increased government investments in water treatment infrastructures and technologies and increased demand for gasses like LPG and CNG. In Asia Pacific, there is an established industrial base that continually requires investment in the region, which makes it a prominent region for the market.
