Global Potassium Aluminium Sulphate Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A white, crystalline salt, KAl(SO4)2.12H2O, used chiefly in the manufacture of alumina and other aluminum compounds.

Crystal Form:

Crystal form is a solid solution of potassium aluminum sulfate (KAS) and/or sodium aluminum sulfate (SAS). It is also known as super-concentrate, ultra-fine or colloidal crystal, which has high usage in the paper industry. Crystal form can be produced by melting either KAS or SAS with water to obtain a homogenous mixture. The optimum temperature for the production of crystal form is between 80°C and 90°C.

Powder Form:

Powder form of KAAS is also known as alu-alu. It is a white or almost white crystalline powder, which has a slightly saline taste and odor. It is insoluble in water and ethanol but dissolves in alkali alcohols such as n-butanol and i-butanol.

Application Insights:

The chemical segment dominated the global market in terms of revenue share in 2017. The growth can be attributed to its wide application scope as a fertilizer and chemicals modifier. Potassium aluminium sulphate is used for the production of fertilizers, which is further utilized by farmers worldwide. It has also been observed that countries with high agricultural output use more PAS while producing fewer crops than expected, thereby leading to an increased demand for the product from other applications such as chemicals and laboratories over the forecast period.

The medicinal segment accounted for USD 281 million in 2017 on account of its usage as an oral medication and topical ointments against skin diseases such as eczema, psoriasis, dandruff & sebostasis (it reduces inflammation). Increasing awareness about medicines along with rising health problems among animals like horses and dogs at global level has led to a significant increase in demand from pharmaceutical companies across Europe and North America over recent years.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the largest regional market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region accounts for a major share of global production owing to cheap labor, raw material availability, and technological advancement. China is one of the leading potassium alum producers due to easy raw material availability coupled with technological advancements in this country.

North America emerged as a significant consumer as well as producer of potassium alum. U.S., being a developed economy has adequate production capacity whereas Canada also plays an important role in terms of export across the globe owing to easy access to capital and technology coupled with favorable climatic conditions for agriculture activities across this region which ultimately drives product demand from chemical, medicinal, laboratory applications etc.).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the agricultural sector for potassium alum as a fertilizer is expected to be a key growth driver for the potassium alum market during the forecast period.
  • Rising demand from the water treatment industry for aluminum sulfate as an coagulant and flocculant is also anticipated to fuel market growth in the coming years.
  • Growing use of potassium alum in various end-use industries such as cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and food & beverages is projected to boost market growth over the next few years.
  • Increasing research and development activities undertaken by manufacturers to develop new applications of potassium alum is likely to provide impetus to market growth in future. 5) Expansion of global trade due rising export potential of potassium alum across different regions is expected create new opportunities for players operating in this market over the forecast period
