So, I have a ~10000 points in 80 areas, and each of them does not have a perimeter (but I have the data which area each point belongs to). I would like to create a primitive polygons of each area from this data. Is there a way to automatically determine which points belong to the perimeter if there are a lot of points?

    Do you mean you want concave hulls ? if so, it can be done easily with the processing toolbox in QGIS Sep 16 at 9:51

If I understood correctly your question, it looks like you're trying to recreate the minimum bounding polygon (a convex hull) for point groups that shares the same value of an attribute. If this is the case, you could try to use the Minimum Bounding Geometry tool in QGIS. Processing > Vector Geometry > Minimum Bounding Geometry, select your input layer, Geometry Type: Convex Hull, Field: choose the field of your layer that contains the information about the area to which each point belong. However, this solution may result in overlapping issues.
