In this report, Technavio analysts highlight the growing use of anhydrous aluminum chloride as a catalyst in organic transformation reaction as a key factor contributing to the growth of the market:
Growing use as a catalyst in organic transformation reaction
Anhydrous aluminum chloride properties such as good conductivity, oxidizing property, low melting and boiling point, strong Lewis acid, and solubility in several polar solvents has led to its use as a catalyst in various organic transformation reaction and end-use applications. Anhydrous aluminum chloride is used as an acid catalyst (mainly in Friedel-Craft reactions); as a chemical intermediate for aluminum compounds; as a catalyst for cracking of petroleum; in the manufacturing of lubricants, wood preservatives, and rubber such as styrene; and to manufacture anthraquinone.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for metals and minerals, “Anhydrous aluminum chloride is used to manufacture titanium dioxide due to it being a good nucleating agent. It is also used in medications, cosmetics, disinfectants, photography, textiles, fabrics, and agrochemicals. The demand for anhydrous aluminum chloride is expected to grow due to its increasing use in several applications and industries during the forecast period.”
