  • Report Description
  • Summary

Activated carbon is a form of carbon processed to have small, low volume pores that increase surface areas available for adsorption and chemical reactions. It finds application in extensive industrial applications including pharmaceutical, food& beverage, water treatment, and personal care. Activated carbon has extensive usage in water and sewage treatment owing to its ability to remove particulate and dissolved impurities. Government regulations pertaining to waste water treatment for industrial settings will propel product demand in foreseeable timeframe. 

Activated Carbon Market Outlook

Extensive application potential in air purification to remove toxic gases harmful dust particles, odours, in green house and manufacturing industries will positively favour product demand. Positive indicators towards industrial development through high investments has led to capacity expansion and building new production plants  has led to increase in pollution levels which is likely to propel demand for activated carbons in maintaining pollution levels. Furthermore, high research expenditures on product development focusing on activated carbon derived from cheap sources and gradually minimize expensive commercial activated carbons which will accelerate industry growth.
