Aluminum Deoxidizer: Restoring Brilliance to Metal


The aluminum deoxidizer market comprises products that eliminate dissolved oxygen from liquid aluminum during aluminum melting and refining operations. Aluminum deoxidizers are usually based on reactive metals like calcium, strontium, titanium, and phosphorus that bond with oxygen at high temperatures reducing it to an insoluble form. The global aluminum production has increased significantly over the years owing to aluminum’s wide application across various end-use industries such as transportation, construction, packaging, machinery, and equipment. As aluminum deoxidizers play a crucial role in refining liquid aluminum, their demand is directly linked to the growth in aluminum production.

The global aluminum deoxidizer market is estimated to be valued at US$ 3.13 Bn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.7% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030.
