Aluminium fluoride is an inorganic compound primarily used for the formulation of aluminium on a commercial level. In terms of physical appearance, the compound is available commercially in solid form. It is colorless and odorless. Aluminium fluoride is denser than water and exhibits high level of solubility with water. Aluminium fluoride can be synthesized and prepared synthetically and is also available in nature in the form of minerals named oskarssonite and rosenbergite. Commercially, aluminium fluoride is synthesized by treating hydrogen fluoride gas with alumina at 700 degree Celsius. Alternatively, numerous other methods are also used for the preparation of Aluminium fluoride, such as decomposition of ammonium hexafluoro aluminate and fluorosilicic acid, which are the primary constituents used for the synthesis of LBD (low bulk density) aluminium fluoride. Commercially, aluminium fluoride is available in different grades for different applications. Aluminium fluoride is manufactured in different forms, namely dry, wet and anhydrous aluminium fluoride. The compound is used in numerous applications, such as glass manufacturing, aluminium metal preparation, ceramic manufacturing and also for the formulation of different chemicals. On a very large scale, aluminium fluoride and cryolite are used for the preparation of alumina during the smelting process. The addition of these two components lowers the melting point and increases the electrolyte’s conductivity of the solution and thus, the power consumption required for the formulation of alumina is lowered, thereby decreasing the overall production cost. Likewise, aluminium fluoride combined with zirconium fluoride forms a primary ingredient for the synthesis of fluorolaminate glasses.

Aluminum Fluoride Market: Region Wise Outlook
Globally, Asia Pacific is leading in terms of production and consumption of aluminium fluoride and captures a major market share. Growing GDP and rising disposable income in China and India has enabled the expansion of numerous industries, such as aerospace, automobiles, pharmaceutical, packaging and construction. High growth in aforementioned industries will drive the demand for aluminium fluoride based products in the region. Aluminium fluoride demand in developing regions, such as NA and Europe, is expected to grow at a sluggish rate. In South Africa, the presence of huge reserves of underutilized fluorspar coupled with investment support for these reserves by the government will drive the market in MEA region. LA will also provide massive growth opportunities for the manufacturers.
