Aluminum Sulfide is a chemical compound, which exists in various forms with formula Al2S3. It is colorless in nature and on hydrolysis produce hydrogen sulfide (H2S). When exposed to moisture, aluminum sulfide hydrolyzes to hydrated aluminum hydroxides or oxides. It is mainly used as a flocculating agent in the purification of drinking water and waste water treatment plants. It is also used in paper manufacturing, sanitation and tanning. Aluminum sulfide is also used as a general-purpose food additive.
Increasing use in the paper and pulp industry and as a water treatment chemical are major factors driving the aluminum sulfide market. Increasing demand for clean water across the world and use of water treatment chemicals is expected to grow at the rapid pace in the years to come. Additionally, requirement for high quality chemicals used in the paper manufacturing is also projected to increase the demand for aluminum sulfide in the forecast period. However, volatility prices of raw material, certain environmental regulations and concern against the use of aluminum sulfide could act as restraints for the global aluminum sulfide market.
