Activated Carbon Market Overview:

Activated carbon is one of the major adsorbents in the adsorbent market globally. Its adsorption capacity is high and its surface is also important. Coal, wood, coconut shells and lignite are the main raw materials used for production.

The sectors that use activated carbon include the automotive industry, the food industry, the pharmaceutical industry and the medical industry. Activated carbon is generally used for its discoloration and deodorization properties. The increase in pollution and the greater awareness of health are factors that drive the progressive growth of activated carbon in the market.

Activated Carbon Market Growth Drivers and Restraints:

The growing awareness of clean water consumption, together with the growing number of wastewater treatment plants through government subsidies, is expected to benefit overall market growth during the forecast period. Activated carbon is used in a variety of industries for air purification, groundwater remediation, spill cleanup and potable water filtration. Governments around the world are providing subsidies for water and clean air. These subsidies, together with rapid industrialization, particularly in regions such as the Asia-Pacific region, should benefit growth in the market. Regulators in various parts of the world have issued guidelines to limit mercury emissions in industries such as petrochemicals.

Regulations such as the Toxic Air and Mercury Standard (MATS) of the EPA have been introduced to limit the emissions of mercury and acid gases from coal and other power plants. Activated carbon helps effectively control these mercury emissions. The government and environmental protection agencies have established strict environmental regulations and standards to help the market. It is expected that the growing demand for air cleaning in domestic and commercial applications will further help the market. The demand for other applications, such as the automotive, pharmaceutical and medical industries, and the food and beverage processing industry, is expected to increase steadily from 2016 to 2024.
