LEDs and Li-ion Batteries to Offer Growth Opportunities in the High Purity Alumina Market

The global high purity alumina market is expected to rise exponentially as the developments in technologies such as increasing usage of LEDs in the lighting market, new applications of high purity alumina in the smartwatches, smartphones, and other gadgets are increasing. It is expected that LED’s will save upto 90% of electricity by the end of the year 2020. They provide better quality of light as compared to fluorescent lights.  The production cost of LEDs has come done in the past few years. This trend is likely to persist in the high purity alumina market during the forecast period. Therefore, rising demand for LEDs and increasing production is anticipated to expand the high purity alumina market globally from 2018-2026. With the rising technological advancements, the manufacturing cost of various electronic devices has reduced. These reductions when coupled with the regulatory policies on energy consumption, are offering various growth opportunities for LEDs to set foot into the lighting sector. LED lighting is estimated to be a profitable area for the high purity alumina market during the forecast period.

The global high purity alumina market is estimated to grow due to the increased production of lithium-ion batteries especially in electric vehicles from 2018 to 2026. Further to this, increasing demand for energy storage devices and consumer electronics is estimated to surge the demand for lithium-ion batteries and which ultimately will increase demand for high purity alumna market. The manufacturers of li-ion batteries have started to focus on increasing their production. This initiative is forecasted to continue and rise at a significant rate in the coming years. Hence, the estimated rise in li-ion batteries and implementation of high purity alumina is anticipated to drive demand for high purity alumina market from 2018-2026.
