The global Aluminum Ammonium Sulfate market is projected to reach US $ 5.9 Bn by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5 %
Ammonium sulfate is an inorganic salt which is naturally found in volcanic fumaroles in the form of mascagnite. The production process is a treatment of ammonia, which is a residual from coke ovens and sulfuric acid. Ammonium sulfate is also formed by gypsum post a treatment with ammonium carbonate solution. Ammonium sulfate has high sulfur content making it easy to absorb by plants and compatible with alkaline soils. Aluminum ammonium sulfate is also commonly known as ammonium alum or ammonia alum.
Aluminum ammonium sulfate in nature is a white crystalline double and it comprises of aluminum hydroxide, sulfuric acid and ammonium sulfate. It is low-cost and non-toxic and has found used in many applications. It is widely used in for water purification, deodorants, dyeing, vegetable glues, tanning, and porcelain cement and is a common element in animal repellant spray.
Aluminum ammonium sulfate Market is huge owing to its use in various applications like fertilizers, purifying protein, flame retardants, food additives, and for the creating ammonium salts such as ammonium persulfate. Ammonium sulfate is one of the most widely used nitrogen fertilizers for crop production. Ammonium alum market is also present in pharmaceuticals, chemicals and cattle feed supplements.
The Aluminum ammonium sulfate Market is depended on various factors such as the fertilizer industry and the strict environmental regulations associated to it. Furthermore, ammonium sulfate is produced as a by-product hence the availability is dependent on industrial output rather than demand of fertilizers. Aluminum ammonium sulfate Market size depends on the market developments in caprolactum market, as it is a by-product of caprolactum. Recent growth of caprolactum in Asia Pacific has led to higher availability of Aluminum ammonium sulfate leading to growth of business opportunities in the coming years. Aluminum ammonium sulfate market size is predicted to grow in the regions where there is deficiency of sulfur soils like North America.
Ammonium Ammonium Sulfate Market also finds its presence in medical industry. It is used in many vaccines like hepatitis A, Diphtheria-tetanus-cellular Pertussis and many more. It acts as a booster to the immune system and helps create more antibiotics to avoid diseases. However, the limiting factor is the negative impacts of aluminum ammonium sulfate that may cause irritation in the eyes and lungs. Also there are numerous substitutes like soda alum, chrome alum, potassium alum, and many more available in the market.
