Activated Carbon Market: Industrial Insight

Activated carbon is also referred to as active carbon, activated charcoal, or activated coal. It is a form of carbon that is processed to make it highly porous to have an extremely huge surface area accessible for adsorption and chemical reactions. Activated carbon is produced by the transformation of organic materials of plant origin such as coal, coconut shells and wood, sugarcane bagasse, soybean hulls, and nutshell. Activated carbon is produced in a two-step process with a first step is marked by carbonization, and the second step is the activation of the material. Activated carbon is valuable for numerous applications comprising of gas purification, water purification, metal extraction, gold recovery, medicine, and sewage treatment, air filters in gas masks and filter masks, and filters in compressed air. Due to such a variety of applications, there is a rise in demand for activated carbon, thereby resulting in a significant rise in the market globally.

Activated Carbon Market: Drivers and Restraints

The increasing need for water treatment and air purification processes are estimated to speed up the activated carbon market worldwide. Activated carbon is a dynamic solution for the purification of rising levels of contaminated groundwater. Also, the resurgence of the auto industry, awareness about health risks related to drinking impure water and regulatory actions associated with water and air pollution across the globe is boosting the overall activated carbon market. Coal-fired power plants are the prime cause of mercury emissions.

Activated Carbon Injection (ACI) has been a potent method for the elimination of mercury emitted from coal-fired power plants thereby contributing to the rise of the activated carbon market.  However, an insufficient supply of raw materials and an increase in the use of substitutes like silica gel and super sand are the factors hampering the activated carbon market. In addition to this, the high cost associated with a few grades of activated carbon also impacts the market globally. High pollution levels, an increase in demand from the food and beverage industry as well as advancement in technology acts as opportunities for activated carbon market in the forecast period.
