Market Outlook

The global activated carbon market size reached a value of almost USD 3.93 billion in 2019. The market is expected to reach a value of nearly USD 6.24 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 8% in the forecast period of 2020-2025. The powdered type of the product is the dominant type of the product, accounting for more than 50% of the total industry. The segment is likely to continue to be the dominant type in the coming years as well. The segment is driven by its rising demand from multiple industrial sectors to control toxicity and mercury levels. Activated carbon, or charcoal, is widely being used in pharmaceutical or medical industry, where it has wide applications as an adsorbent to get rid of pollutants during the drug manufacturing. This is likely to aid the market growth further.

The United States is the leading importing country of the substance, followed by Germany and Japan. In terms of exports, China is the leading export market, accounting for more than one-fourth of the total exports. Belgium, Philippines, the United States, and India are the other significant exporters of the product.  In the Asia Pacific, activated carbon is commonly derived from coconut shell and is being increasingly preferred over the wood-derived kind due to its renewability and high adsorption properties, which can remove a higher amount of micro-impurities. However, wood and coal are the most common raw materials in the industry currently, accounting for more than 60 percent of the production.

The largest end use sector for the product is water treatment, accounting for nearly half of the total industry share. The substance is a highly effective source for water purification, as it effectively absorbs pollutants from water. It is included in the filtration process to remove residual contaminants from wastewater. It also removes chlorine from the wastewater. It has a large surface area that makes the absorption of contaminants from wastewater highly effective. Liquid-phase Granular Activated Charcoal (GAC) Adsorption is a treatment method used for the elimination of pollutants from the groundwater. Both powdered as well as granular activated carbons are used in water treatment. Wastewater treatment is followed by air treatment, gold treatment, respirators, and solvency recovery segments as the other major end-uses the product. It absorbs micro-pollutants from air, including chlorine, methane, and other organic compounds. Carbon activation is being used in the automotive industries to monitor emissions, to eliminate VOCs (volatile organic compounds) as well as to improve cabin air quality. This could also be used to develop supercapacitors electrodes.

Properties and Applications

Activated carbon is used in a variety of applications to purify liquids and toxic gases, including food and beverages processing, potable water treatment, odour removal, and in controlling industrial pollution. It is produced from carbonaceous sources such as coconuts, nutshells, coal, peat, and wood. The types of the product available in the industry are:

  • Powdered Activated Carbon (PAC)
  • Granular Activated Carbon (GAC)
  • Others

It finds its applications in the following segments:

  • Water Treatment
  • Air Treatment
  • Gold Treatment
  • Respirators
  • Solvency Recovery

The report also covers the regional markets of the product like North America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Asia Pacific, and Latin America.

Market Analysis

The growing demand for water filtration as well as air purification, supported by governments as a measure to improve water and air quality are the leading market trends in the activated carbon industry. In developing regions like India and China, the growth in the activated carbon market will be aided by a set of regulatory changes, like revisions in the environmental protection law in China. The rising production of the product from key players in these regions will also aid the industry growth.

Industrial air treatment is gaining attention, as many industrializing countries struggle with significant air pollution issues. This is resulting in the rise of activated carbon demand from the major industrial economies in order to control the mercury levels.  The granular types of the product are expected to witness a healthy demand from the wastewater treatment industry as it effectively removes residual disinfectants and organic contaminants.

The product is also finding wide applications in the mining industry, specifically in the gold purification process, as it acts as an effective adsorbent in the gold recovery process. An increase in the gold mining activities, thus, is also pushing the activated carbon market growth further.

Coconut shell is the one of the most dominant feedstock materials used in the production of the product. An increase in coconut production provides an impetus to the activated carbon market. Other major feedstock material, like wood and coal, are also expected to drive the activated carbon market. Coal based activated carbon is extensively used in potable water purification, which is a major application sector.
