Global demand for activated carbon is on an upswing, with prospects for future growth looking quite healthy. Activated carbon’s outstanding capability in adsorbing a number of impurities from liquids and gases renders it to be used on an extensive basis in several applications concerning air and water purification. Additional application areas for the material include the automotive, food & beverage and medical & pharmaceutical industries, albeit on a limited basis. The future market for activated carbon is also likely to derive benefit from a continuous stream of openings from a number of industrial processes that employ adsorption technologies.

Regulations related to water and air pollution across the world have a major role to play in influencing demand for activated carbon. Several countries across the globe are confronting the challenge of depleting clean water resources due to growing population. Rising levels of contaminated groundwater need purification and activated carbon offers a potent solution for overcoming this hurdle. The Disinfectants and Disinfection Byproducts Rule in the United States that puts a cap on the allowable concentration of chemicals in drinking water is also likely to drive growth for activated carbon.

The supply of raw material for activated carbon has been tight and producers have been compelled to increase prices of virgin activated carbon. This scenario has led to fueling demand for reactivated carbon in various areas, such as refineries for reducing VOCs in gas phase applications, groundwater remediation and wastewater treatment processes.
