Aluminium Chloride Price Trend and Forecast

Regional Price Overview

Get the latest insights on price movement and trend analysis of Aluminium chloride in different regions across the world (Asia, Europe, North America, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa).

Chlorine and aluminum scrap are the key raw materials needed to make anhydrous Aluminium chloride. While chlorine is received from various caustic soda and chlorine plants, aluminum scrap is purchased from scrap merchants.

Anhydrous Aluminium chloride manufacturing costs vary depending on chlorine supplier prices and the availability of aluminum scrap because chlorine supply is so crucial to the production of anhydrous Aluminium chloride.

Another process required dry chlorine or hydrochloric acid gas which is passed over heated aluminum powder to produce the chemical. As a result, feedstock hydrochloric acid (HCl)  has some influence on Aluminium chloride prices.

Zhangzhou Xiangcheng San'an Chemical Co., Ltd. offered 550 RMB/MT of high-purity HCl in the first quarter of 2022, which was momentarily steady, and the real transaction price was mostly negotiated. During the first quarter of 2022, the market for upstream liquid chlorine rose slightly and cost support was strengthened.

The market for downstream ammonium chloride rose sharply, the price of polyaluminium chloride was adjusted to a low level, and downstream hydrochloric acid purchase intentions were widespread.

Production Processes:

  • Production of Aluminum via Exothermic Process; via Single Displacement Reaction

On a large scale, an exothermic reaction between aluminum metal and chlorine or hydrogen chloride produces Aluminium chloride. The temperature is kept between 650 and 750 °C. When hydrogen chloride is used, hydrogen gas is produced as a byproduct.
