The rise in demand for lightweight materials is one of the major trends being witnessed in the global cryolite market 2018-2022. Aluminum is used in various industries such as the automotive and electronics owing to its lightweight material. The weight of a vehicle is directly proportional to the amount of energy required to move it. The efficiency and performance of a vehicle depend on its weight. The use of lightweight materials instead of heavy materials leads to a reduction in the weight of a vehicle, thus improving fuel efficiency.

According to Technavio analysts, one of the key factors contributing to the growth of the global cryolite market is the increasing demand in aluminum production:

Global cryolite market: Increasing demand in aluminum production

In the aluminum production, cryolite is used as a flux by aluminum smelters Adding aluminum fluoride and cryolite to the production process of primary aluminum lowers the consumption of electricity required in the smelting process and thereby considerably contributes to the reduction of production costs of aluminum. Cryolite has become one of the most commonly used compounds to produce aluminum through molten salt baths due to its electrolytic properties.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on metals and minerals, “Cryolite enables higher electrical efficiency through the production cell. Furthermore, it allows aluminum producers to cut energy use, streamline production, production costs, and ensures a pure end-product. In aluminum production, energy is a major cost factor. Some of the major producers of aluminum and users of cryolite have a large captive production of cryolite, which means that they produce cryolite for their own use although in the period of the infringement they also bought it from other cryolite producers.”
