Alumina Trihydrate Market to Register a CAGR of 7.7% in 2031

Alumina Trihydrate Market

APEJ and North America are leading the alumina trihydrate markets. Collectively, they are anticipated to account for nearly half of the revenue share in the global market by 2031 end.

Alumina trihydrate (ATH) is used in manufacture of glass, ceramics, paints & coatings, etc. It finds major application as a flame retardant and smoke suppressant in materials due to its ability to release water of crystallisation as water vapour when heated above 220°C.

Alumina trihydrate is commercially available in the market for a number of applications such as waterproofing, furniture and tapestry production. Alumina trihydrate is available in multiple grades—coarse, precipitated, chemically treated and superfine. Depending on the application and customised demand from end-user industries, these grades and particle sizes can be modified.

Alumina trihydrate also finds major application in polyester and polymer resins as low-smoke, non-toxic replacement for latex, rubber, wires & cables and floorings. Major end-use industries that use alumina trihydrate are plastics, paper, paints & coatings, adhesives, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals.
