Aluminum chloride hexahydrate
, as a product, is soluble across broad variety of solvents which include water, propylene glycol, ethanol, ether and chloroform. The product exhibits high quality electrical conduction, low melting point, low boiling point and non-flammability. Its aqueous solution is acidic in nature. It is produced by the process of dissolution of hydrochloric acid in aluminum oxide. The key customers of aluminum chloride hexahydrate are pharmaceutical and metal processing industries. It further has a wide usage as a catalyst in chemical synthesis across the industrial manufacturing of aluminum metal. Moreover, aluminum chloride hexahydrate is also used in water cleaning and treatment applications.
Hyperhidrosis is among the most widespread dermatological conditions that have a harsh effect on the life quality of infected patients. Sweating more than physiological needs or excessive sweating is Hyperhidrosis. The primary therapy for patients with moderate-to-mild hyperhidrosis is aluminum chloride hexahydrate. In spite of its benefits, research studies have highlighted that it is a carcinogen, which causes breast cancer. Conversely, the researches’ have not been justified with adequate proof therefore aluminum chloride hexahydrate still remains the most widely utilized antiperspirant across the globe. In spite of being the highly adopted antiperspirant, it is poised to face intense competition from various other alternative treatment options over the forecast period. Other treatment options include oral anticholinergics, botulinum toxin, iontophoresis, endoscopic sympathectomy and resection across sweat glands. The composition of its Tropical counterpart has a combination of 2% salicylic acid and 15% aluminum chloride hexahydrate. It is the tailored version of the original product with reduced side effects and enhanced effectiveness.The global Aluminum Chloride Hexahydrate Market
is classified into end-use industry as Pharmaceuticals, Metal Processing, Chemicals, Water Treatment and Others (Personal care, etc.). Furthermore, the Global Aluminum Chloride Hexahydrate Market is bifurcated by regions into North America, Asia Pacific (APAC), Europe and Rest of the World (RoW). Asia Pacific is the dominant region which amounts for the biggest and the most rapidly expanding Aluminum chloride hexahydrate markets. The increasing manufacturing activity in Asia Pacific is driving the consumer goods market. The largest consumer of Aluminum chloride hexahydrate is the emerging countries of Asia Pacific. North America stands as the second biggest for Aluminum chloride hexahydrate markets owing to the significant presence of international drug manufacturers such as Pfizer and Johnson & Johnsons coupled with the availability of organized and structured pharmaceutical market.Some of the key players in the global Aluminum Chloride Hexahydrate Market are:
