Air and Water Pollution Control Regulations to Drive Activated Carbon Market Growth to Touch $6.2 billion by 2022



Industry Experts has unveiled the new market research report on activated carbon. The new report ‘Activated Carbon – A Global Market Overview’ reveals that the Water Treatment consumes the largest amounts of activated carbons among all other end-use sectors. Water Treatment is estimated to account for about 824 thousand metric tons in 2016 valued at US$1.3 billion. Air Purification projected to be the fastest growing end-use sector during the analysis period 2016-2022 with a CAGR of 10.4% and expected to touch 1.2 million metric tons valued at US$2.4 billion by 2022 while Water Treatment is witnessing slightly slower growth with a CAGR of 10.3% for the same analysis period.

Global demand for activated carbon is on an upswing, with prospects for future growth looking quite healthy. Activated carbon’s outstanding capability in adsorbing a number of impurities from liquids and gases renders it to be used on an extensive basis in several applications concerning air and water purification. Additional application areas for the material include the automotive, food & beverage and medical & pharmaceutical industries, albeit on a limited basis. The future market for activated carbon is also likely to derive benefit from a continuous stream of openings from a number of industrial processes that employ adsorption technologies.

Regulations related to water and air pollution across the world have a major role to play in influencing demand for activated carbon. Several countries across the globe are confronting the challenge of depleting clean water resources due to growing population. Rising levels of contaminated groundwater need purification and activated carbon offers a potent solution for overcoming this hurdle. The Disinfectants and Disinfection Byproducts Rule in the United States that puts a cap on the allowable concentration of chemicals in drinking water is also likely to drive growth for activated carbon. The supply of raw material for activated carbon has been tight and producers have been compelled to increase prices of virgin activated carbon. This scenario has led to fueling demand for reactivated carbon in various areas, such as refineries for reducing VOCs in gas phase applications, groundwater remediation and wastewater treatment processes.

Worldwide market for Activated Carbon product segments explored in this study includes Granular Activated Carbon, Powdered Activated Carbon and Other Activated Carbons. The report also analyzes the key applications of Activated Carbon comprising Gas Phase applications and Liquid Phase applications while discussing the major end-use sector markets covering Air Purification, Automotive Canisters, Food & Beverages, Medical & Pharmaceutical, Water Treatment and Others. The global markets for the above mentioned product types, application areas and end-use sectors are analyzed in terms of both in metric tons and USD. Global market for activated carbon, estimated at US$2.7 billion in 2015, forecast at US$3 billion in 2016 and further expected to maintain a robust CAGR of 12.8% between 2016 and 2022 to reach a projected US$6.2 billion by 2022.
