Aluminium powder is a light, silvery-white to grey, odourless, reactive and flammable granular or spherical powder made from aluminium metal. Generally, it is manufactured in four forms - atomised aluminium powder, aluminium flake powder, aluminium paste and aluminium pigment powder. During 2009-2016, the global aluminium powder market grew at a CAGR of around 2% and is further expected to exhibit a balanced growth during the forecast period. Some of the major industries where it is widely used include metallurgy, chemicals, paints & pigments, construction, etc. Aluminium powder can undergo a rapid exothermic reaction when it gets oxidised and this has enabled it to find application in rocketry, explosives, thermal spray, powder metallurgy, etc. This report by Expert Market Research entitled “Aluminium Powder Market Report and Forecast 2017-2022” provides a comprehensive analysis for anyone who plans to foray into the aluminium powder market.
