Powdered had a major share in Activated Carbon Market
In 2021, the powdered category dominated the global Activated Carbon market and had more than 60% of the market volume share in the same year. This is primarily due to the wide application of powdered activated carbon across industries such as automotive, food and beverage processing, and pharmaceutical and medical, due to its high absorption capacity. The rising demand along with the stringent environmental regulations are estimated to boost the category growth over the upcoming years.
Besides, the granular category is projected to witness lucrative growth over the forecast period. The high use of granular in air treatment and municipal water treatment plants, mainly in mercury and chlorine removal processes are the key reasons for category growth. Moreover, the increased application of granular category across applications is further estimated to enhance the category growth in the global Activated Carbon market.
Gas was the leader in the Activated Carbon in 2021
The gas category dominated the Activated Carbon market in 2021. The category accounted for more than 55% of the market revenue share in the same year. The category growth can be attributed to the growing consumption of activated carbon gas into different products such as air conditioners, sewage, gas mask, human waste treatment, desulphurization, along with purification of factory effluent gases. Moreover, the increased demand for the product in air purification applications from commercial as well as domestic users are projected to enhance the category growth.
Besides, the liquid category is anticipated to emerge as the fastest-growing application category over the forecast period. This is majorly owing to the increased use of liquid in the different industrial categories such as potable water treatment, decolorization, groundwater treatment, industrial water treatment, chemical and pharmaceutical wastewater treatment, and precious metal (gold) recovery.
Asia Pacific Activated Carbon Market to Grow at the Fastest CAGR
Asia Pacific had a major share in the global Activated Carbon market in 2021. The region had more than 40% of the market revenue and volume share in 2021. The economies such as India, China, and Japan are projected to lead the region over the forecast period. Asia Pacific had a major share due to the high production of activated charcoal in the region due to coconut shells being one of the proven and widely used raw materials for activated charcoal manufacturing. Numerous Asian countries such as the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, India, and Sri Lanka have ideal weather which is suitable for steady coconut cultivation, due to which Asia Pacific is the primary region for the raw material of Activated Carbon.
North America and Europe are projected to witness substantial growth over the forecast period. This is due to the increasing environmental concerns, and standards along with government initiatives to safeguard the environment. The stringent government regulations such as disposal of industrial wastewater and gas emissions in these regions are further estimated to enhance the regional growth. Moreover, the increased demand for Activated Carbon from the automotive manufacturers in Europe to minimize the emissions from the vehicle is presumed to enhance the regional growth over the forecast period.
