High Purity Alumina Market Overview:

High Purity Alumina market size was valued at USD 2.1 Billion in 2021, registering a CAGR of 14.9% during the forecast period (2022-2030), and the market is projected to be worth USD 7.33 Billion by 2030.

The increased need for automobiles, semiconductor display materials, and computers owing to their stability of the structure, high workability, and good quality is anticipated to boost the demand for High Purity Alumina. Additionally, it is a highly demanded product because it is a crucial component required for the production of synthetic sapphire. Which is further used to manufacture LED lights and semiconductor wafers. For instance, according to International Energy Agency, LED sales have increased significantly over the past few years, increasing to more than half of all lighting sales in 2021, with integrated LED luminaires accounting for a growing portion, from a market share of about 5% in 2013. Thus, the high need for high-purity alumina for manufacturing LEDs is expected to boost industry growth.

High-purity alumina (HPA) is the purest form of aluminum oxide (Al2O3) that is produced via the hydrolysis of aluminum oxide, Hydrochloric acid (HCl) leaching, vapor-phase oxidation, and underwater spark discharge with aluminum. It is a high-value, high-demanded product that is used for manufacturing synthetic sapphire. This a non-metallurgic, non-corrosive, bright with 99.9% minimum purity, and high temperature resistant. They have numerous applications in the electronic industry such as the production of wafers, synthetic gemstones, parts of smartphones glass TV, and many more. In the context of the region, the North American high purity alumina, market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 14.3%in the forecasting period, reaching a value of more than USD 278.3 million.

Market Dynamics:


Need for the synthetic sapphire for the production of LEDs which are being used for different applications such as smartphone backlights, automobile headlights, home illumination, and many others is increasing globally resulting in demand for HPA, serving as the key driver. The high purity alumina market is further bolstered by the rising number of electric vehicles (EVs). Due to the increasing production of electric vehicles (EVs), the demand for lithium-ion batteries is significantly rising. HPA is used to coat lithium-ion battery separators, so this has led to rapid consumption.


The increasing cost of high purity alumina hinders market growth. Also, strict rules are set by the government on the extraction of red mud as it causes problems such as irritation in the eyes and upper respiratory tract hindering the growth of the high purity alumina market.

COVID-19 Impact:

The COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the market for high purity alumina in various regions of the world. The main effects of COVID-19 that slowed the expansion of the market were restrictions on transportation, uncertain consumer demand, a lack of raw materials, and low production of high-purity alumina products. Trade restrictions and the closure of a manufacturing facility as a result of government-imposed lockdowns impacted shipping during the initial lockdown. From December 2019 to April 2020, alumina production decreased by 3.22 percent. During COVID-19, the market’s expansion was also hampered by sectoral obstacles in the construction, electrical, and transportation industries. Because these industries use 80 % of the alumina produced.
