Major end user industries for aluminum fluoride include automobiles, construction, aerospace and pharmaceuticals among others. Of these, building and construction represents the largest end user segment for aluminum fluoride and the trend is anticipated to continue for a foreseeable future. Pharmaceuticals segment is expected to be the fastest growing end user segment during the forecast period. The construction industry's strong performance can be credited for the aluminum fluoride market's growth. Moreover, growth in infrastructure mainly in the developing economies is anticipated to drive demand for aluminum fluoride.
Reviving automotive industry in Asia Pacific and European regions is also expected to be among foremost growth drivers for aluminum fluoride market. Aluminum fluoride penetrates into human body through air or can be absorbed by skin and leads to several health hazards including asthma. The health hazards associated with aluminum fluoride is among major restraints for aluminum fluoride market growth.
Aluminum Fluoride Market: Regional Dynamics
Asia Pacific dominates the global aluminum fluoride market both in terms of consumption and production. China is the leading manufacturer of aluminum fluoride across the globe and constitutes significant portion of the global market share. Moreover owing to over exploitation of major raw material sources in China, the production is anticipated to decline in the near future. High GDP growth and increasing disposable income in India and China have led to high growth in several end user industries including automobiles, pharmaceutical, packaging, aerospace, construction among others. High growth in end user industries is expected to be among foremost factors driving demand for aluminum fluoride in the region. Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest growing region for aluminum fluoride market for a foreseeable future.
North America is the second largest market for aluminum fluoride followed by Europe. Increasing regulations to control the hazards associated with aluminum fluoride has been restraining aluminum fluoride market growth in the developed economies of North America and Western Europe.
Demand for aluminum fluoride in North America and Europe is anticipated to grow at a sluggish rate during the forecast period. Underutilized fluorspar reserves in South Africa coupled with increasing government support to invest in the reserves is expected to drive market growth for aluminum fluoride in the RoW region. Moreover, increasing demand for aluminum fluoride driven by high growth in several end user industries in the rapidly industrializing economies of South America and Africa will likely present massive growth opportunities for players in the aluminum fluoride market.
Aluminum Fluoride Market: Competitive Landscape
Aluminum fluoride market is consolidated and few major players constitute major portion of the global market share. Major players invest in research and development activities owing to patent protected technologies and to improve operational efficiency. The degree of competition in the industry is expected to intensify during the forecast period leading to increased price sensitivity. Some of the major players in aluminum fluoride market are E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, Alfa Aesar, Apollo Scientific Limited, Finetech Industry and Shanghai IS Chemical Technology among others.
