High Purity Alumina Market Growth Rate Analysis:

High Purity Alumina Market was estimated at USD 1.1 billion in 2018 and is expected to expand at CAGR 21.2% to reach USD 4.9 Billion by 2024.

High purity alumina (HPA) is a treated premium non-metallurgical type of alumina defined by its purity level. It has properties such as chemical stability, high melting point, high electrical resistance & insulation, and good thermal conductivity, making it the perfect choice for electrical and mechanical applications.

Recent Developments:

In Feb- 2017, Orbite Technologies, a market giant of High purity Alumina Market, announced that it is expanding its plant to produce the commercial HPA products.

Drivers and Restraints of the High Purity Alumina Market:


The governments of several countries have banned the use of incandescent bulbs due to their inefficiency and a large amount of heat generation. With the drumbeat of the authorities to phase out these bulbs, regions such as Europe, Argentina, Malaysia, Japan, the United States, Canada, and Mexico have enforced this ban, and the search for efficient alternatives has begun among end-users and LED’s are expected to provide a practical solution. So, the growth of the usage of LED’s is directly expected to drive the High Purity Alumina Market.

The demand for high-purity alumina is mainly driven by its growth in applications in Li-ion batteries. The increase in demand for lithium-ion batteries can be attributed to the rise in demand for electric cars worldwide to reduce carbon emissions is expected to drive the market.


High cost to replace incandescent bulbs with LED’s can act as a significant obstacle that constrains the High Purity Alumina Market.

Detailed Segmentation of the High Purity Alumina Market:

High Purity Alumina Market – By Type:

  • 6N
  • 5N
  • 4N

Global Market Growth based on Segmentation:

Based on Type:

The 4N category of HPA is alumina with a purity rate of 99.99 percent. The 4N segment has the lowest price compared to other HPA types. The 5N HPA has a purity rate of 99.999 percent. With applications in LEDs, semiconductor substrates, optical lenses, aerospace, biomedical, among others. The 6N segment of HPA has a purity level of 99.9999 percent. 6N HPA helps to develop very high-quality sapphire wafers as needed by high-end applications such as medical (surgical tools & equipment, bioceramics), automotive (lithium-ion batteries, car polish, electrical insulators, pumps, and valve components), aerospace and defense.

4N HPA finds its essential application in LED bulbs and digital displays. Leading companies in this sector invest more in R&D to provide brand customization as per the requirements of the application areas. Government support, leading to increased adoption of LEDs coupled with lower costs compared to other types of HPA, is expected to increase demand for 4N HPA and eventually drive the growth of the high-purity aluminum industry.

Based on By Technology:

Orbite Technologies is the first company to start commercial production of HPA using the HCL process, thereby reducing the cost of HPA.

Hydrolysis technology is the most adopted method used by major manufacturers for the production of HPA, due to its advantage as it helps to recover the acid that can be reused, reducing operating costs. Besides, the use of hydrolysis technology allows tailoring the HPA service for end-users. These factors are expected to increase the adoption of hydrolysis and are expected to drive the growth of high-purity alumina market.

Regional Growth Analysis of the Market:

Asia-Pacific accounted for a major share of the global high purity alumina market:

Asia-Pacific accounted for a major share of the global high purity alumina market in 2018 due to increased demand for cost-effective and energy-efficient LED lighting across the region, as high-purity alumina is widely used as raw material for the production of such lighting. In addition, the government imposed strict regulations on the production, import and sale of incandescent lights that drive the LED lighting market in that region, which eventually increased the consumption of HPA. High demand for LED lighting from countries such as China and Japan also contributes to the growth of the market in the APAC region and is expected to drive the growth of the high purity alumina market worldwide.
