The global high purity alumina market is expected to reach USD 7.20 billion by 2026 according to a new study published by Polaris Market Research.
The global high purity alumina market has been divided based on purity level, application, and technology. Considering the purity level, the market is classified into 4N, 5N, and 6N. It is the 4N level of purity held the largest market share in the market followed by 5N and 6N. The enormous application of the lithium-ion batteries where the 4N purity level of alumina is maintained has resulted in the segment holding the largest market share of more than 40% and will continue to maintain its dominance in the forecast period of 2018-2026.
On the basis of application, the high purity alumina market comprises of semiconductors, sapphire, phosphorus, and electronic display among others. Here the electronic display held the largest market share which can be contributed to the huge demand for LED-based electronics globally. Moreover, the LED is more environment-friendly and sustainable that has led to the government pushing the application of LED making it one if the fastest growing technology globally.
The market for high purity alumina is also bifurcated by technology into hydrolysis, and HCL based. It is the hydrolysis segment that held the largest market share because of its feasibility and lower operational cost. The HCL based technology still is at a nascent stage and needs more time to get commercialized.
