Aluminium potassium sulphate is an imperative chemical compound. Also known by potassium aluminium sulphate, potash alum, alum flour, and alum meal, this compound is naturally obtained from the mining and purification process of kalinite and alunite minerals.

The global aluminium sulphate market is exhibiting considerable growth driven by extensive industrial applications of aluminium sulphate. This double sulphate of potassium and aluminum is mainly used as astringent (or styptic) and antiseptic. Owing to this it is widely used in the pharmaceutical industry.

Diverse Applications of Aluminium Sulphate Fueling Demand

Potash alum's antiperspirant and antibacterial properties make for its application as a deodorant. Potassium alum also is used in the formulation of various cosmetics products such as cleansing products, skincare products, moisturizers, face powders, and many more. Thus, the cosmetics industry is augmenting the growth of aluminium potassium sulphate market.

Aluminium potassium sulphate is a great dye fixative that aids in the strong adherence of dye to a fabric. This makes it beneficial in the fabric, paper, and chemical industry. In addition to these, aluminium potassium sulphate is used in the water purification process due to its coagulating leading properties. In agricultural industry, aluminium potassium sulphate is known for enriching the potassium content in the soil when taken as a fertilizer.

Owing to its versatility, aluminium potassium sulphate is enjoying applicability in major industries. According to Fact.MR, the global market is expected to record steady growth between 2020 and 2030.

Implementation of Emission Control Norms Causing Restraint

Despite exhibiting a steady growth trajectory, the market is currently facing challenges posed by the implementation of stringent emission control norms. Emission produced during manufacturing processes that use aluminium sulphate causes harm to the environment.

Focus towards reducing the risk of environmental hazards might create restraints to growth. Key players operating in the market are therefore investing in the development of improved handling techniques. With this hazardous impact on the environment is likely to reduce offsetting aforementioned restraint.

COVID-19 Impact on Aluminium Potassium Sulphate Market

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic severely hit all the sectors. The global aluminium potassium sulphate market experienced limited growth due to the slowdown of manufacturing activities of major end-use industries like chemical, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and water purification.

Transport restrictions imposed by governments played a major role in restraining the growth of the market during the initial phases of the COVID-19 outbreak. From manufacturing activities to supply chain, COVID-19 interrupted all activities and decreased the demand. Additionally, fluctuations in currencies and taxes worsened the situation.

With manufacturers bringing new strategies to run parallel with COVID-19 without compromising social distancing norms and security of employees, the market is expected to recover during the forecast period. Fact.MR estimates the major support to come from the water purification sector of hugely populated growing economies.

Aluminium Potassium Sulphate Market by Form

By form, the powder segment is expected to remain lead during the forecast period. The growth of the segment is attributable to the increasing use of aluminium potassium sulphate in powder form in various end-use industries.

Aluminium Potassium Sulphate Market by End Use

Aluminium potassium sulphate market is projected to witness a fivefold growth in the water purification segment. The growth of the segment is attributable to its characteristics like coagulating suspended particles, algae, protozoa, viruses, bacteria, and some metal ions such as iron and manganese into larger particles.

The resulting "sludge" is then removed easily. Furthermore, the growing middle-class population and increasing health awareness among consumers are augmenting the demand for aluminium potassium sulphate from the water purification sector. Following water purification, the pharmaceutical industry and cosmetics industry will observe a sharp growth in terms of market value through the assessment period.
