Carbon filtering is a filtration process that employs a bed of activated carbon to adsorb impurities from a fluid. It works by adsorption, which absorbs contaminants in the treated fluid within the pore structure of a carbon substrate. Activated carbon filters has unique properties that allow it to eliminate volatile organic compound, odors, and other gaseous contaminants from the atmosphere. Activated carbon has swept the industrial world, becoming an important component in a wide variety of industries such as cosmetic, medical, and agricultural uses. Additionally, they are widely used for air filtering, water purification, and industrial gas processing, for example the removal of hydrogen sulfide and siloxanes from biogas.
A surge in the adoption of activated carbon filters in a wide range of applications from gold purification to sewage treatment is major driving factor behind the growth of the market. Likewise, factors such as increasing significance of activated carbon filters in a number of applications such as the purification of sugarcane, respirator masks, the recovery of precious metals, particularly gold and in some methods of coffee decaffeination, surge in the demand for clean or purified drinking water, growing applications in industries such as pharmaceutical, food and beverage processing and medical, and increased demand from water and wastewater processing industries are expected to improve growth of the market during the forecast period.
The study analyses global activated carbon filters market based on type, application and geography.
Based on type, stainless steel shell segment dominated the market in 2020 and is likely to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. The durability and less-corrosive properties of stainless steel shell activated carbon filters have improved their growth. Because of its corrosive nature, carbon steel shell activated carbon filters are less durable. In addition, most filters do not have the benefits that stainless steel shell filters do. It is much more resistant to high temperatures and corrosion than other filters.
Based on the application, industrial water pollution treatment segment is projected to witness fast growth during the estimated timeframe. The introduction of severe regional governments and environmental agencies regulations to control water pollution is primarily driving the global activated carbon filters market. Activated carbon filters are also used to treat industrial wastewater so that it can be reused in the manufacturing process, which is ultimately propelling the growth of the market.
Geographically, the study is comprised of the key countries of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World. Asia Pacific held the largest market share of global activated carbon filters market and is likely to dominate the market over the estimated time frame. Rapid growth in the APAC chemical industry is major driving factor behind the market growth in the region. Likewise, factors such as surge in the adoption of several stringent government rules and regulations regarding water pollution and wastewater treatment and management, rising industrialization and urbanization, and increasing concerns related to environment are further likely to contribute to the market growth.
The major key players of market includes Bionics Consortium Pvt. Ltd, Cabot Corporation, Carbtrol Corp, Cocarb Solution, Condorchem Envitech, Donau Carbon GmbH, Ecologix Environmental Systems, General Carbon Corporation, Kuraray Co. Ltd, Lenntech B.V, Prominent Systems Inc, Puragen Activated Carbons, Sereco S.R.L, Silcarbon Aktivkohle GmbH, Suez Water Technologies & Solutions, Tigg LLC, Veolia Water Technologies, Water Professionals, Westech Engineering and Wolftechnik Filter System among others.
The study analyses global Activated Carbon Filters market based on type, application, and geography. Activated Carbon Filters market by type is segmented into carbon steel shell, stainless steel shell, and others. The stainless steel shell segment is likely to dominate the market over the forecast period. Increased adoption of stainless steel shell in various end-use applications owing to its several benefits is attributed to the market growth. The market finds application in drinking water purification, food & beverage, industrial water pollution treatment, pharmaceutical, and others. The industrial water pollution treatment segment is likely to register fastest growth in years to come owing to the growing adoption of activated carbon filters in industrial wastewater treatment application. Geographically, the study is comprised of the key countries of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World.
