[113 Pages Report] Anhydrous aluminum chloride is an odorless, white or yellow crystalline solid having low melting and boiling point. It is primarily used as a catalyst in the chemical industry for various applications such as dyes and pigments, pesticides, reforming hydrocarbons, pharmaceuticals and as active ingredients in cosmetics. It is also used in the manufacturing of fumed alumina, electrolytic production of aluminum, and as a nucleating agent in the production of titanium dioxide

The global market size of anhydrous aluminum chloride was about USD 742.76 million in 2016 and is projected to reach USD 948.65 million by 2022, at a CAGR of 4.19% between 2017 and 2022. Also, the market is estimated to grow from 399.20 kilotons in 2017 to 472.71 kilotons by 2020, at a CAGR of 3.7% during the forecast period. The increased demand for anhydrous aluminum chloride as a catalyst to derive various chemical intermediates for dyes and pigments, pesticides, and pharmaceuticals and cosmetics application drives the growth of the market.

Anhydrous Aluminum Chloride Market

Granule form expected to dominate the anhydrous aluminum market during the forecast period

The market for granular anhydrous aluminum chloride held a large share in 2016, in terms of value. The market growth of granular anhydrous aluminum chloride is because of its use as a catalyst for various applications such as dyes and pigments, pesticides, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, and reforming hydrocarbons. Also, it possesses a preferred particle size for the export market.

Dyes and pigments application DOMINATes the anhydrous aluminum chloride market during the forecast period

The dyes and pigments application held the largest share in terms of value, of the overall anhydrous aluminum chloride market in 2016.

APAC to account for the largest growth in market size during the forecast period

In 2016, APAC held the largest share of the global anhydrous aluminum chloride market in terms of volume. It is also projected to register the highest CAGR in terms of volume, between 2017 and 2022.

The growing demand for dyes and pigments from emerging economies-such as China, India, South Korea, Vietnam, and other Southeast Asian countries-are likely to drive the anhydrous aluminum chloride market during the forecast period. Also, China, Japan, and India are major producers and consumers of pesticides, pharmaceutical drugs, cosmetics, and metallurgy in APAC. Therefore, all these factors influence a positive outlook in this region.

Anhydrous Aluminum Chloride Market

Market Dynamics

Driver:  Growing demand from various applications

Anhydrous aluminum chloride is primarily used as a catalyst in the chemicals industry for various applications, such as dyes and pigments, pesticides, reforming hydrocarbons, and pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. Dyes and pigments is the largest market for anhydrous aluminum chloride as it is used to derive major dye intermediates, such as anthraquinone, phthalocyanine green, ethylbenzene, and meta phenoxy benzaldehyde. Demand for anhydrous aluminum chloride is also driven by the requirement of dyes and pigments in growing textile, printing ink, plastics, paints & coatings, and other niche industries.

Anhydrous aluminum chloride is also used as a raw material in the production of fumed alumina, electrolytic production of aluminum, and as a nucleating agent in the production of titanium dioxide. Therefore, the use of anhydrous aluminum chloride in various applications drives the market.

Restraint: Fluctuating raw materials prices

Aluminum scrap and chlorine are the raw materials required for manufacturing anhydrous aluminum chloride. Aluminum scrap is obtained from scrap dealers, and chlorine is sourced from various caustic soda and chlorine producers. As the production of anhydrous aluminum chloride is highly dependent on the supply of chlorine, the production price of anhydrous aluminum chloride varies as per the supplier price of chlorine and availability of aluminum scrap.

Opportunity: An increasing export opportunity for anhydrous aluminum chloride in APAC

Anhydrous aluminum chloride is primarily manufactured in APAC and exported globally. Stringent regulations pertaining to the manufacture of hazardous chemicals in North America and Europe play an important role in the market. The manufacture of anhydrous aluminum chloride is continuously decreasing in these regions due to its hazardous chemical properties. Hence, it is mainly imported from APAC for domestic applications. China and India are the 2 major countries exporting anhydrous aluminum chloride globally. Owing to this opportunity, Gujarat Alkalies and Chemicals increased its production capacity of anhydrous aluminum chloride plant by installing 4 additional reactors in 2016.

Challenge: Difficulty in storing anhydrous aluminum chloride

Anhydrous aluminum chloride is usually stored in a cool, dry, and well-ventilated area, and away from moisture, heat, any source of ignition, and strongly alkaline materials. Being hygroscopic and corrosive in nature, anhydrous aluminum chloride is difficult to store. Hence, it is manufactured and supplied based on the demand from various end-use applications and requires excellent packaging for distribution. Therefore, storage and packaging play an important role in maintaining the quality of this compound.
