High Purity Alumina Market - Insights, Opportunity Analysis, and Industry Foreca

Posted by Apeksha on July 20th, 2019

Plummeting costs of LEDs and increasing consumer shift towards replacing incandescent lights with LED lights, owing to their high energy efficiency and low carbon emissions is in turn expected to create highly lucrative growth prospects for the global high purity alumina market throughout the forecast period (2017–2025). Artificial sapphire is used as a substrate in production of LEDs, onto which the emitting layer of the LED is deposited as a vapor. Artificial sapphire is derived from high purity alumina by single crystal technology. As per stats released by Coherent Market Insights, the 4N purity segment was pegged at US$ 744 million in 2016. 99.99% purity level the 4N grade alumina is widely used, due to easier availability of smelter grade and low production cost. The 4N grade high purity alumina is widely used in gas separation and ultra-filtration process due to its high chemical resistance, porous nature, and mechanical strength. Moreover, demand for 5N grade high purity alumina is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period as it finds wide application in scratch-proof sapphire glass and high end electronic displays. The market is expected to gain traction in Asia Pacific region due to burgeoning growth of various end-use industries in China, Taiwan, South Korea and India.

These factors collectively position Asia Pacific as a powerhouse in the global high purity alumina market, and is expected to retain its dominance in the market through 2025.

Cost Reduction: A Major Challenge for Market Players

High purity alumina is a highly capital intensive market, which makes it difficult for new players to enter into the market. The cost of end products will be high and profitability will be low if the production costs are high. Therefore, the market is highly consolidated and the, market is dominated by major players based in Australia and China due to large bauxite reserves, which is the basic raw material required for the production of high purity alumina, in these economies.

Major players in the global high purity alumina market include Altech Chemicals Limited, Baikowski Pure Solutions, Nippon Light Metal, Polar Sapphire Ltd., Sumitomo Chemical Co. Ltd., Orbite Technologies Inc., and Alcoa Inc. and among others.
