Market Overview

Activated Carbon Market Size was valued at USD 5.39 billion in 2021. The Activated Carbon market industry is projected to grow from USD 5.91 Billion in 2022 to USD 10.62 billion by 2030, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.61% during the forecast period (2022 - 2030)

Market Dynamics

The market for activated carbon has boomed due to the rise in the demand for mercury treatment technologies in air purification applications. There are also several businesses which have yet to low their use of different mercury-containing processes and goods. Though not presently in demand, in the near future, technical advances will give rise to increasing demand for activated carbon. Reactivated carbon is cheap and can overcome the high cost associated with traditional activated carbon.   

A shortage of many important raw materials such as coconut shell, timber, and charcoal are obstacles that impede the Activated Carbon Market. A changing crude oil price will impact the supply chain of petrochemical, pharmaceutical, and related industries, which is another challenge due to be faced by activated carbon manufacturers in the coming years.

The COVID-19 outbreak has pushed down the rates of use of activated carbon in countries around the globe. This has created a lack of essential raw materials, including coconut shells and timber. This pandemic has affected the market for water treatment and air purifiers, but has raised the demand for activated carbon. Increasing demand for water treatment systems and dewatering equipment in consideration of the strict public health rules and guidelines as well as the high need for a hygienic atmosphere will benefit the activated carbon industry. If the reach of the activated carbon application post-SARS-CoV-2 grows, the activated carbon industry will continue to be in demand.

Segmental Analysis

granular activated carbon and Powder activated carbon are the two significant types of activated carbon in the global market. The powdered activated carbon type is the dominant segment, having secured a share of 53% in 2017 and can soar at the fastest rate of more than 8% to touch USD 3.8 billion by 2023-end. 

Water purification, food beverage, air purification, metal extraction, automotive, industrial chemicals are some of the major application segments of activated carbon. In the lead is the water purification segment, as it accounted for the biggest share of 36% in the year 2017, owing to the surging use of activated carbon in residential, industrial and municipal water treatment.
