The aluminum fluoride market is an essential part of various end-use industries such as chemicals, construction, automotive, and others. Aluminum fluoride is an inorganic compound widely used as a fluorinating agent in the production of fluorocarbons and uranium hexafluoride. It finds applications as a flux in the aluminum industry and in the manufacture of ceramic glazes, fluorescent lamps, aluminum, and cryolite. Aluminum fluoride is also used as a food additive, dental etching agent, and insecticide.
The global aluminum fluoride market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2.65 Mn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 10% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Growing Demand from Chemical Industry: Aluminum fluoride is mainly used as a fluorinating agent in the production of fluorocarbons, uranium hexafluoride, and other chemical compounds. It helps increase the efficacy of fluorinating agents and fluorocarbon production. Therefore, the increasing demand for fluorocarbons from refrigerants and propellants is expected to boost the demand for aluminum fluoride over the forecast period. According to industry estimates, the global fluorocarbon gases market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of over 5% during 2020-2027 due to their wide applications in residential, commercial, industrial sectors and automobiles.
Moreover, aluminum fluoride also finds application in aluminum production and other end-use industries such as construction, thereby augmenting market growth over the forecast period. However, increasing environmental and health concerns regarding aluminum fluoride may hinder market growth.
Content: The aluminum fluoride market can be segmented by form into anhydrous and wet types. The anhydrous segment dominates the market and accounts for over 60% share as it has lower water content and better properties. It has wide applications in aluminum production, oil refining and is also used as a fluorinating agent and catalyst.
Political: Aluminum Fluoride Market Growth is impacted by trade policies and regulations around hazardous chemicals. Stringent norms can affect market dynamics.
Economic: Market performance is correlated to economic growth patterns. During recession, demand from end use industries such as construction and automotive declines impacting market revenue.
Social: Growth in population and urbanization is spurring infrastructure development globally. This is promoting use of aluminum in construction and automotive boosting aluminum fluoride consumption.
