Aluminum sulfate, also known as alum, refers to a white-colored crystalline salt that is soluble in water. It is non-toxic and non-combustible in nature, which is widely used on minor cuts and abrasions after shaving. It is also utilized in the textile, paper and dyeing industries. The two most common kinds of aluminum sulfate include common and iron grade. Aluminum sulfate also reduces the PH level of the soil, which results in the flowering of plants. In recent years, aluminum sulfate has gained momentum due to the increasing demand for pigments, solvents, dyes, and chemical products.
One of the primary factors driving the market is the exponential growth in the cosmetics and personal care industry. Additionally, with the surging demand for pharmaceuticals globally, the utilization of aluminum sulfate is consequently rising. Other than this, aluminum sulfate is also widely used for wastewater treatment and purification of water, thereby creating a positive market outlook. Besides this, aluminum sulfate is used in numerous food applications, including remineralization and clarification of water for soft drinks and beer and controlling pH levels in beetroots, tomatoes, and other vegetables. It is also employed for the purification of beetroot juices, controlling pH and color in wine and liquor, leavening agents in cake mixes (baking soda), and curdling and thickening cheese. This is positively influencing the market growth. Along with this, the usage of aluminum sulfate in various pharmaceutical applications; for instance, solutions with 5 to 10% aluminum sulfate are utilized as local applications to treat ulcers and stop foul discharge in mucous surfaces. Furthermore, there has been widespread product utilization as a vaccine adjuvant, deodorant, and astringent, on account of its anti-microbial properties possessed by it. Moreover, the easy accessibility of aluminum sulfate through online and offline mediums is driving the market.
