Activated Carbon Market Insights – Global Analysis and Forecast by (2020 – 2027)

February 17
17:50 2021
The study methodologies used to examine the Activated Carbon market for the forecast period, 2020 – 2027 further classifies the industry by type, geography, end-use and end-user to add more precision and bring to light factors responsible for augmenting business development.

The augmenting demand for clean drinking water and implementation of the strict regulatory framework for controlling greenhouse gas emissions are significant factors propelling the market growth.

The global Activated Carbon Market is expected to be valued at USD 14.07 Billion in 2027 from USD 6.70 Billion in 2019, registering a CAGR of 9.6% through the forecast period. The expansion of the market can be accredited to the augmenting application of activated carbon in the medical and pharmaceutical sectors. Activated carbon is extensively used to minimize the production of pollutants during the drug manufacturing processes. Additionally, the implementation of stringent regulations to remove mercury from natural gas production units, power plant emissions, and other man-made sources is further projected to fuel the market growth.

The growing application of activated carbon in treatment of water to ensure the water is potable and to treat water in industries is also adding to the market expansion. Activated carbon is an excellent adsorbent and has a high specific surface area, which is beneficial in mercury emissions, thereby driving its adoption in emission control applications. The environmental rules and policies to mitigate mercury emissions from manmade sources are also projected to propel the industry’s growth.

The growing demand for activated carbon for gas-phase and water applications coupled with an increasing requirement from the United States, rapid advancement in technology, and growing apprehension about healthy lifestyle are some of the significant factors bolstering the market growth over the projected period.

Key Highlights from the Report:

Granular activated carbon (GAC) is an efficient option to remove certain chemicals such as organic chemicals from the water. GAC filters also eliminate chemicals that confer objectionable taste or odor to the water.

Coal-based activated carbon is extensively used in the purification of potable water thereby driving the segment’s growth. The segment is foreseen to proliferate at a significantly high CAGR during the projected timeframe. 

The automotive end-use industry is foreseen to expand at a significantly high CAGR in the estimated timeframe. In the automotive sector, activated carbon is extensively used to control emissions to remove VOCs and enhance the air quality of the cabin using activated carbon filter pads. It is also used to create electrodes for super-capacitors.

Europe is projected to occupy a substantial share of the industry in the estimated period owing to the implementation of stringent regulations by the government concerning the environment and increasing consciousness about the environment in the region. The increasing economic development in the region is also driving the regional demand.

Prominent players in the market include Prominent Systems Inc., Cabot Corporation, Kuraray Co. Ltd., Donau Carbon GmbH, Osaka Gas Co., Ltd., Silcarbon Aktivkohle GmbH, Oxbow Activated Carbon LLC, Kureha Corporation, Boyce Carbon, and Calgon Carbon Corporation, among others.

In November 2020, AquaShield introduced Philips Water GoZero, a new product line of Philips-branded hydration products to transform the way of water consumption. The product enables consumers to enjoy clean and fresh drinking water on-the-go from both tap and natural sources in a sustainable manner.
