Anhydrous aluminum chloride, also known as aluminum trichloride (AlCl3), is an odorless, yellow, crystalline solid. It is produced primarily by the gaseous chlorination of molten aluminum through various processes. It is also as employed in polymerization and isomerization reactions of hydrocarbons. The product is highly irritating to eyes, skin, and mucous membranes. Anhydrous aluminum chloride is one of those materials that experiences uninterrupted supply, as the raw material required to manufacture it is available in abundance.
Currently, Asia Pacific is leading player of the global anhydrous aluminum chloride market and is followed by North America and Europe. The market for anhydrous aluminum chloride is expanding substantially, owing to speedy growth of pharmaceuticals and consumer goods industries. Growth in the cosmetics industry caused by speedily changing lifestyles of people is likely to fuel the global anhydrous aluminum chloride market during the forecast period. Growth of the food processing industry in South Asian countries such as Indonesia, and Myanmar is also driving the demand for anhydrous aluminum chloride. In terms of volume, Asia Pacific was the dominant region in the anhydrous aluminum chloride market; it accounted for more than 44% share in 2015. North America comprises of industrialized countries and mature markets. Owing to low prices, suppliers, particularly from Japan and the U.S., tend to serve their local markets, or meet the internal demand of the company and then sell surplus material, if any, at a low price. Thus, declining demand and unsustainable prices have left anhydrous aluminum chloride an unprofitable product. Over-capacity and low prices have led to plant closures in all developed regions, especially Europe.
