Global Activated Carbon Market to Reach $3.7 Billion by 2019, Says a New Research Report at Ceskaa Market Research
The global market for activated carbon has been growing at a considerable rate with water treatment, air
and gas filtration, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and automotive end-user industries over the past
five-years. The market for activated carbon used in air and gas treatment applications is expected to grow
at a faster rate due to tightening government regulations. The Asia-Pacific region dominates the activated
carbon market globally followed by North America and Europe. The opportunities for regeneration of
activated carbon are further driving the activated carbon market worldwide.
To assess the market, activated carbon is divided into three major types - powdered activated carbon
(PAC), granular activated carbon (GAC) and extruded activated carbon (EAC). Activated carbon is a type
of adsorbent made from coconut shells, coal and wood. Activated carbons manufactured from coconut
shells are mainly in powdered and granular forms, while those from coal are commonly in granular and
extruded forms and those manufactured from wood are majorly powdered form. Activated carbon has a
porous structure with a wide surface area where all contaminants are adsorbed Application of activated
carbons in various industries to reduce the level of contaminants and impurities as well as to meet the
regulatory standards for pure air and water is driving the global market for activated carbon.
Calgon Carbon Corp., Cabot Corp., Haycarb PLC, MeadWestvaco, Osaka Gas Company Ltd., Kuraray
Company Ltd. and Evoqua Water Technologies LLC are some of the major manufacturers of activated
ADA Carbon Solutions LLC, Albemarle Corp., Arkema group, Carbotech AC GMBH, Indo German
Carbons Ltd., Kureha Corporation, Ningxia Huahui Activated Carbon Company Ltd. and Oxbow
Corporation are the other key participants in the activated carbon market.
This report also highlights the major drivers and challenges related to activated carbon and also focus on
the market share for major companies, including their profiles.
Activated carbon is the major adsorbent in global adsorbent market occupying more than 65% of the
volume market share due to its high adsorption capacity and large surface area. Activated carbon is mainly
divided into three types; powdered, granular and extruded. It has become the preferred option for use in
potable water purification, waste water treatment, aquariums, swimming pools and sewage water
treatment as well as air and gas filtration. These applications are gaining popularity due to increasing
pollution levels, health concerns and stringent government regulations.
