Market Overview:

The global trimethylaluminium market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for trimethylaluminium from various applications such as LED industry, solar cell, semiconductor laser, and others. Trimethylaluminium is used as a precursor for various aluminum-based compounds which are used in these applications. North America is expected to lead the global trimethylaluminum market during the forecast period followed by Europe and Asia Pacific.

Global Trimethylaluminium Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Trimethylaluminium is a colorless, flammable liquid with a faint ethereal odor. It is used as a Lewis acid catalyst in organic synthesis and as an intermediate in the manufacture of other organometallic compounds.


6N, also known as trimethylaluminum, is a chemical compound of aluminum and nitrogen. It has a triple bond between the central nitrogen atom and the second carbon atom from the end. The molecule has three hydroxide groups (–OH) that can form six anions (6+). 6N compounds are highly reactive with oxidizing agents such as nitric acid or peroxides.


6.5N is a special grade of trimethylaluminium which has about 90% of methylaluminate by weight. It is used as an additive to gasoline to increase octane rating and reduce air pollution in the exhaust gas. Methylaluminate (MA) increases the rate of combustion and reduces harmful emissions from automobiles, especially when added in high concentrations (more than 10% by volume).

Application Insights:

The global market is segmented by application into LED industry, solar cell, semiconductor laser, and others. The LED industry was the largest application segment in 2017 and is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. Rapid industrialization coupled with rising disposable income has led to an increase in demand for LEDs across various end-use industries including automotive, electronics & telecommunication sectors among others. This trend is expected to continue over the forecast period driving overall demand for trimethylaluminium globally.

Solar cell was another prominent segment accounting for a considerable amount of market share in 2017 owing to increasing government initiatives towards renewable energy generation such as feed-in tariff schemes and net metering policies across various countries worldwide including China Uigeo India America etcetera which are likely to propel product consumption over the coming years.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the largest regional market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The growth of this region can be attributed to increasing production of LED lights, which consumes a large amount of trimethylaluminium as a raw material. China is one of the major producers and consumers for this product in this region.

The demand for TMA in Asia Pacific was mainly driven by China owing to high consumption from various end-use industries such as solar cell, laser industry, LEDs etc., However, recently there has been an increase in imports from Japan due to low availability locally due to lack of raw materials like rare earth elements that are essential for manufacturing lasers and LEDs with higher efficiency levels. This shortage has led manufacturers including Toyota Tsusho Corporation (Japan) and Sumitomo Chemical Co., Ltd (Japan) have started importing these products from Japan which will further impact overall global supply chain dynamics especially during peak season i.e.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for aluminum alloys from transportation and construction industries
  • Growing demand for trimethylaluminium in Asia Pacific region
  • Rising use of trimethylaluminium in polymers and plastics industry
  • Increasing application of trimethylaluminium as a flame retardant additive
  • Growing research and development activities for the development of new applications
