Global Activated Carbon Market size is likely to be valued at USD 5.3 billion by 2020; as per a new research report by HexaResearch. Increase in commercial & residential waste water treatment demand owing to escalation in water prices is anticipated to drive the growth. Growth in air filtration demand owing to rapid industrialization n countries such as China, Russia, India, Brazil and Mexico is likely to positively influence overall growth.
Favorable regulations such as “Clean Air Mercury Rule” from EPA for lowering mercury emissions from coal-power fired industries are likely to support activated carbon market demand. Tight raw material supply situation of coal, wood pulp and coconut shell is likely to affect overall industry profitability.
Powdered activated carbon (PAC) dominated the product segment and accounted for over 56% of the total volume in 2013. Increasing application scope in cement industry, municipal treatment, groundwater remediation and beverage industry is likely to drive its growth. GAC (granular activated carbon) is anticipated to witness gains at an estimated CAGR of 11% from 2014 to 2020.
