Activated Carbon Market Size and Overview


Globally, the size of activated carbon market is set to grow at a CAGR of 8.59% from a value of USD 4,917.0 Million in 2020 to hit USD 9,593.97 Million by 2030 driven by increasing demand in water treatment and smart electronics segments. 


Activated Carbon is a carbonaceous material with a highly developed porous structure and a large internal surface area. It is composed of approximately 85–90% carbon and other elements depending on the raw materials used and the processing method. The porous structure of the product allows it to absorb various materials from liquids and gases and therefore applicable in removing toxic gases and elements from industrial waste effluents, flue gas, natural gas, and others. Gas purification, gold purification, metal extraction, decaffeination, air filtration units, and pharmaceuticals are the major applications served by the product.


COVID-19 Impact vs Opportunities for Activated Carbon Market:


The outbreak of COVID-19 has had a negative impact on the production of Activated Carbon due to the disruption in the supply chain across the globe. The supply scenario is facing a few issues due to the restrictions on travel and the lockdown of cities; however, the sourcing teams are working closely with the suppliers to manage the supply of raw materials proactively. However, the pandemic is likely to have a severe short-term impact across the markets. The long-term impact, on the other hand, is expected to be moderate, and the operations across this market would bounce back to normal around the second quarter of 2022.


To overcome this situation, there are various factors offering an optimistic opportunity for global market during the assessment period which includes increasing automobile sales, rapid adoption of electric vehicles and increasing demand for reactivation of carbon in electronic industry.


Market Dynamics



  • Drivers

    • INCREASING DEMAND FOR ACTIVATED CARBON IN WATER TREATMENT APPLICATIONS




Activated Carbon is commonly used to adsorb natural organic compounds, taste and odor compounds, and synthetic organic chemicals from drinking water. Henceforth, with the increase in population and pollution, the demand for safe potable drinking water is rising, which is projected to fuel the demand for Activated Carbon over the forecast period.



  • Opportunity

    • GROWING POPULARITY OF THE PRODUCT IN SMART ELECTRONICS




The carbon-based materials are gaining popularity in various energy-related applications as they are easy to process, available in abundance, have chemical and thermal stability. Activated Carbons are prominent carbon materials for these applications due to their large surface area and high pore volume, and relatively low cost. In the coming years, Activated Carbon is estimated to be increasingly used in the manufacturing of supercapacitors and for hydrogen storage.



  • Restraints

    • DISADVANTAGES OF ACTIVATED CARBON AS A FILTER




Activated Carbon filters are not good at removing chemicals that are not attracted to carbon, such as sodium, nitrates, heavy metals, and fluoride. Also, powdered Activated Carbon cannot be reactivated after use and is also sometimes difficult to dig out of water treatment reservoirs. Therefore, the disadvantages of Activated Carbon as a filter restrain the market growth



  • Challenges

    • AVAILABILITY OF SUBSTITUTES




Some of the alternatives of Activated Carbon available in the market include activated alumina, silica gel, and super sand. Activated alumina has a high-surface-area and can adsorb gases and liquids without changing its form. Whereas, Silica gel is a non-toxic, non-corrosive, and chemically inert substance. Therefore, the availability of substitutes is a major challenge to the growth of the Activated Carbon Market.



  • Cumulative Growth Analysis

    • The global Activated Carbon Market is expected to witness a healthy growth with CAGR 8.59% throughout the forecast period. North America is anticipated to drive global market growth over the forecast period.




Supply Chain Analysis:


The supply chain analysis is the process of evaluating every stage and step taken by stakeholders involved throughout the production and distribution of filled fluoropolymer. The supply chain includes raw materials and suppliers, producers, distribution channels, and end-use industries. The distribution channel in this market comprises distributors, wholesalers, and e-commerce merchants.


Segmentation


By Type



  • Powder Activated Carbon: Powder activated segment holds the largest share in 2020 due to its widely used for de-chlorination of water, mercury removal from power plant emissions, drinking water treatment, groundwater remediation, and taste and odor removal from water used in the food & beverage industry.

  • Granular Activated Carbon: The granulated Activated Carbon has a relatively larger particle size and exhibits good diffusion characteristics. It is widely used in the food & beverage industry for the decolorization of sugar solutions, vegetable oils and fats, liquor, and fruit concentrates, among others.

  • Extruded Activated Carbon: Extruded Activated Carbon is produced by combining powdered Activated Carbon or a pulverized charcoal with a suitable binder and then by high-pressure extrusion of the mixture to form cylindrically shaped Activated Carbon.

  • Others: The others segment includes impregnated Activated Carbon, polymer coated carbon, and bead Activated Carbon.


By Application



  • Water Purification: Water Purification segment holds the largest share in 2020, among application as activated carbon helps remove organic compounds and extract free chlorine from water and makes it suitable for manufacturing processes.

  • Air Purification: Key factor driving the growth of Activated Carbon is rising adoption of granular and powdered Activated Carbon in VOCs' adsorption from the air, natural gas purification, and removal of H2S and BTX.

  • Food & Beverage: Activated Carbon are used to adsorb gases to remove unwanted odor and taste from various food products in food and beverages industry. It also helps to remove high-fructose corn sugar from sweetener products.

  • Industrial Chemicals: Activated Carbon is used for a broad range of industrial chemical applications, such as in alum, to remove high molecular proteins and organic impurities, in soda ash, and many more applications.

  • Metal Extraction: Activated Carbon is used for the product in the recovery of precious metals (gold). It offers hardness, inertness, high affinity towards gold, resistance to abrasion, different particle sizes, and excellent electability.

  • Pharmaceuticals: Activated Carbon are used to purify active pharmaceutical ingredients (API), antibiotics, steroids, vitamins, pharmaceutical intermediates, and pain killers, among others.

  • Automotive: Activated Carbon is used to enhance battery performance in ultracapacitor applications for hybrid electric vehicles.

  • Catalyst: The growth of the catalyst segment is primarily attributed to the increasing use of the product as an ideal carrier for catalytic metals owing to its purity, large surface area, recyclability, and inertness.

  • Others: The other applications of Activated Carbon include purification of electroplating solutions, analytical chemistry, agriculture, energy storage, and hemodialysis.
