High Purity Alumina Market Growth & Trends

The global high purity alumina market size is anticipated to reach USD 15.81 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., registering a CAGR of 22.2% during the forecast period. Rising demand for lithium-ion batteries used in Electric Vehicles (EVs) and increasing electronic component production are anticipated to propel market growth, as the product is increasingly being used in various high-tech industries. High-purity alumina (HPA) is anticipated to play a crucial role in the manufacturing of low-carbon emission products in the coming years. The product is used as a major ingredient in the production of synthetic sapphire that can be used in ceramic separators in lithium-ion batteries to increase its thermal capacity.

Another important application of HPA is in the production of LED lighting and scratch-resistant glass. In Asia Pacific, the HPA market was dominated by China, and it is anticipated to continue driving demand while it continues to remain the hub for the production of electronic components and semiconductors. The country is also the largest producer of lithium-ion batteries globally. China has taken advantage of the availability of a highly-skilled, low-cost workforce. This is viewed as a critical competitive advantage for global companies setting up manufacturing bases, especially on account of rising raw material and energy prices that have currently impacted the industry.
