Aluminum Sulfate Market: Introduction

Aluminum Sulfate or Al2(SO4)3  or Alum is a chemical compound which is soluble in water and is nontoxic and noncombustible in nature. It is majorly used in waste water treatment as a flocculating agent to purify drinking water. It is also used in the production of paper, fireproofing agents, and food additives, deodorizers, as a decolourization agents in petroleum and in firefighting foams. The anhydrous form of Aluminum Sulfate is essentially a white crystalline solid and is mainly obtained as an 18-hydrate Al2(SO4)3.18H2O.

A saturated solution of Aluminum Sulfate can be used as a mild caustic soda. Any solution of Aluminum sulfate containing 5%-10% of the chemical compound can be used to capture foul discharges from mucous surfaces and also be used to treat ulcers. Aluminum Sulfate is also used in the production of ear drops containing Aluminum Acetate.

Alum or Aluminum Sulfate is also used to clean lake water. It successfully removes phosphorus from water, thereby, creating an obstacle in production and growth of algae.

Due to the acidic nature of the compound, Aluminum Sulfate is often used to balance the pH of alkaline soils. On coming in contact with water, Aluminum Sulfate forms dilute sulphuric acid and aluminum hydroxide, thereby altering the pH of soil.

In water treatment, Aluminum Sulfate is used as a flocculating agent as Aluminum Sulfate when added to water causes the microscopic impurities to form a clump, forcing them to settle at the bottom from where they can be easily collected. Aluminum Sulfate is also used in cleaning the cloudiness of swimming pools.

Aluminum Sulfate when dissolved in a high amount of water forms a gooey substance called Aluminum Hydroxide. This compound acts a dye fixer as it helps the dye stick to the cloth by making the dye water insoluble.

Aluminum Sulfate Market: Market Dynamics

An increase in research activity to find cures for diseases has led to increased consumption of Aluminum Sulfate. For instance, Aluminum Sulfate is now used in medicines to cure Atopic Dermatitis and Interigo. Thus, it is anticipated that any increase in the usage of medicines containing Aluminum Sulfate will drive the market.

Rapidly growing population is also increasing the demand for healthy crops, which in turn, is putting pressure on the agriculture industry. To grow healthy crops, healthy soil conditions are required. Acidic soil can be made healthy by adding Aluminum Sulphate to it as AluminiumSulphate helps to balance the pH of soil, thereby making it productive for the crops. Thus, is it slated that the above stated reason will cause an increment in the consumption of Aluminum Sulphate, leading to growth in the Aluminum Sulphatemarket.

That apart, due to the wide applications of Aluminum Sulfate in various industries, such as mining, chemicals, construction, food & beverages, etc. it is anticipated that the Aluminum Sulfate market will witness some acceleration in coming years.
