Aluminum Oxide Market Overview

Aluminum Oxide Market is anticipated to express a 6.68% CAGR growth to touch USD 70,511.7 Million by the conclusion of 2030. 

Aluminum oxide is the fourth most commonly found mineral globally. Aluminum oxide is an inherently appearing compound that finds use in numerous industries, mostly in aluminum manufacturing. Aluminum oxide is primarily exploited in the construction industry, owing to its outstanding properties and comparatively significant thermal conductivity. Alumina provides high strength and hardness in its transparent form, which makes it more suitable as an abrasive. Aluminum oxide acts as an outstanding refractory substance for high-temperature applications in crucibles, incinerators, furnaces, kilns, and reactors of numerous categories. Aluminum oxide also finds applications as an advanced material in ceramics due to its multiple purity and endurance to alkali and acid substances. Aluminum oxides' s non-toxic properties have led to their use as a filler in plastics and as an element in cosmetic products such as body lotions and sunscreen creams. Aluminum oxide is anticipated to see enormous demand from the medical transplants' subdivision due to its application as a biomaterial, which is anticipated to grow the aluminum oxide market growth through the forecast period. Moreover, its use in prosthetics is estimated to grow in the forecast period, creating optimistic development options in the forecast period.

Recent Developments

Dec 2020 Rubicon Technology, Inc. who had formerly applied a stock buyback plan to repurchase up to USD 3 million of its shared stock in November 2018, this year, they used up all of the outstanding amounts of such initial USD 3 million authorization in July this year.  The  Board of Directors at Rubicon has sanctioned another stock buyback plan to buy up to an additional USD 3 million of its shared stock from time to time through open market and private dealings.  Rubicon has a branded technology platform and expertise, extending from raw aluminum oxide preparation through sapphire crystal development and fabrication.

Dec 2020 A group of scientists from Siberian Federal University and their colleagues from Novosibirsk studied nanoparticles' effect on oil production effectiveness. When added to the water that moves oil from a reservoir, nanoparticles advance the separation of oil drops from mine rock and their washing to the surface. The aim was to progress a liquid with special recovery-improving additives. Prior to the experiment, the group equipped nanoliquids created on distilled water and used silicon dioxide (SiO2) and aluminum oxide (Al2O3) powders as nanoparticles.
