“Activated Carbon Market has been segmented by Form, Application and Region”
Global Activated Carbon Market: Information by Form (Granular, Powdered), Application (Water Purification, Air Purification, Food & Beverage, Pharmaceuticals, Cosmetics, Mining, Chemical Purification, Soil Remediation), and Region—Forecast till 2023

Market Synopsis

Activated Carbon is processed carbon with a porous structure and a very large internal surface area. Physical adsorption is the principal property of activated carbon which makes it useful for water purification, air purification, soil remediation, automotive emission control, metal recovery, separation and purification of chemicals, foods, and pharmaceuticals. It can be produced from a number of carbon-rich organic materials such as charcoal, coconut shell, wood, coal, peat, and others.

Water purification is set to remain the key driver for the growth of the Global Activated Carbon Market during the forecast period. Stringent government regulations for emission control in developed as well as in developing countries is another major factor driving the growth of the Global Activated Carbon Market in the manufacturing as well as automotive industries. Rapid industrialization in Asia-Pacific is further boosting the growth of the product market. Furthermore, the ease of raw material availability is also positively supporting the growth of the Activated Carbon Market.
