An important driver increasing growth in the global activated carbon market is the high demand for mercury control applications. Many vendors in the market have enhanced their portfolio to include products such as powdered activated carbon, which aids in industrial air purification by removing mercury.

The applications of activated carbon market are used extensively for various purposes. Granular activated carbon (GAC) is usually used for eliminating organic ingredients and remaining decontaminators in water supplies. Air filter activated carbon entails of a massive system of holes of molecular dimension. These holes are extremely absorbent, developing a robust chemical bond with gaseous, odorous, and liquid contaminants, particularly organic chemicals/compounds. Activated carbons eliminate impurities such as odour and colour from food liquids, sweeteners, beverages, syrups, amino, glycerine, and organic acids. Prevention and control of diseases and safeguarding health are the top priorities of the modern society. Increasingly, medical intervention utilizes drug therapy rather than invasive measures such as surgery. Activated Carbon finds its application in the locomotive industry for evaporative emanation control to reduce gasoline emanations from the vehicle, which benefits the environment. Activated carbon is broadly used in the interest of gold cyanide centres for gold dispensation. The other areas of applications for activated carbon market includes clothes, fabric and textiles, etc.

Increasing price of steaming coal and product development for pharmaceutical industries are the major factors hindering the Global Activated Carbon market. Most activated carbon products rely on coal throughout the manufacturing process. As a result, coal purchases are a significant expense for activated carbon manufacturers. An increase in the price of coal or any other price volatility of this input typically harms the profit margins for industry operators, since they are not always able to pass on the increased cost to downstream markets.

The Global Activated Carbon market segments include raw material, types, and applications.

Raw materials are segmented into:

  • Coal
  • Wood
  • Coconut Shell
  • Others

Types are segmented into:

  • Powdered
  • Granular
  • Pellet
  • Others

Applications are segmented into:

  • Water Treatment
  • Air Purification
  • Food and Beverage
  • Pharmaceutical and Medical
  • Automotive
  • Mining
  • Others

This report covers the present market conditions and the growth prospects of the Global Activated Carbon market for 2018-2026 and considered the revenue generated through the sales of Activated Carbon for raw materials, types as well as applications to calculate the market size by considering 2017 as the base year.

Geographically, the Global Activated Carbon market has been segmented on the basis of four major regions, which include:

  • North America – U.S. & Canada
  • Asia-Pacific – China, India, Japan, South Korea, Australia, Rest of APAC
  • Europe – UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Rest of Europe
  • Rest of World- Latin America, Middle East and Africa

The Activated Carbon market in APAC is witnessing a dynamic growth. Several low-cost producers of activated carbon in countries such as China and Japan are offering their products at competitive prices. For instance, in the US, a major share of the demand for imported activated carbon is met by Sri Lanka, which is followed by China, India, and Japan. Additionally, the consumption of activated carbon in the APAC region is also expected to increase substantially, with a growing focus on the management of water pollution and scarcity. With rapid industrialization in countries such as China, India, South Korea, and Taiwan, increased number of end-users are expected to adopt activated carbons.

The Activated Carbon Market is segmented on the basis of raw materials which are sub-divided into coal, wood, coconut shell and others. The market is also segmented on the basis  of the types of activated  carbon which are sub-divided into powdered, granular, pellet and others. By applications, the market is segmented into water treatment, air purification, food and beverage, pharmaceutical and medical, automotive, mining and others. Carbon is the main component of coal after the other basic components of the original living matter (hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen), which gets progressively decayed during chemical and physical transforming processes. Trees and wood products have a unique ability to store carbon. Activated carbon from coconut shell has a predominant micropore range. The demand for powdered activated carbon, which is used for the removal of mercury from flue gas, is particularly high in countries such as the US. Pellet activated carbon is used in the removal of solvents, hydrocarbons, and contaminants from hydrogen, landfill gas, carbon dioxide, and in catalyzing reactions.

The major market players in the Global Activated Carbon market are:

  • CABOT CORPORATION
  • CALGON CARBON CORPORATION
  • KUREHA CORPORATION
  • OSAKA GAS CO., LTD.
  • HAYCARB PLC

Company Profiles covers analysis of important players.

These companies are using organic and inorganic strategies for their growth. For instance, in October 2017, Cabot Corporation entered into an agreement to purchase Tech Blend, a leading North American producer of black masterbatches, for approximately $64 million. The acquisition extends Cabot’s global footprint in black masterbatch and compounds; provides a platform to serve global customers and grow in conductive formulations, and offers Tech Blend resources and capabilities to support growth. In February 2016, Calgon Carbon Corporation announced that it completed its acquisition of the wood-based activated carbon, reactivation and mineral-based filtration media business (the Activated Carbon and Filter Aid Business, or the Business) from CECA.
