Summary

Table of Contents

Over the recent years, the global activated carbon consumption has kept growing with an AAGR of 5.5% or so, approximating 1.437 million tons in 2014. With the rising demand from the global industrial environmental protection, home/automotive environmental protection, water purification and other fields, the world’s demand for activated carbon is expected to hit 1.733 million tons in 2017.

The global capacity of activated carbon is mainly concentrated in the United States, Japan, France and a few other developed countries as well as some developing countries like China and the Philippines who abound in raw materials. The United States, Japan and France devote themselves to producing medium and high-end activated carbon products, while China manufactures low- and medium-end products with inferior quality and low added value.

However, China is the world's largest producer of activated carbon in terms of capacity, accounting for 43.2% of the global capacity. China’s activated carbon output was about 588,800 tons in 2014. As China’s environmental awareness gets enhanced and environmental protection policies tightened, China’s demand for activated carbon will present a CAGR of up to 6% in the next 3-5 years, higher than the global level.

China is also a major exporter of activated carbon. However, Chinese activated carbon with a focus on low-end products suffers anti-dumping investigations of some countries, thereby affecting the export in near future. In 2014, China exported 53,960 tons of wooden activated carbon and 191,550 tons of other types of activated carbon.

At present, Chinese medium and high-end activated carbon markets are dominated by Calgon, Meadwestvaco, Cabot, CECA, Kuraray and Osaka Gas Chemicals, who enter China usually by acquisitions or establishing plants with investments. Calgon has established three wholly-owned subsidiaries in China, namely Calgon Carbon (Tianjin), Datong Carbon Corporation and Calgon Carbon (Suzhou).

In China, activated carbon falls into wooden activated carbon and coaly activated carbon, which occupy 65.2% and 34.8% of the total output in 2014 respectively.

The leading Chinese producers of wooden activated carbon are represented by Fujian Yuanli Active Carbon, Fujian Xinsen Carbon, Zhixing Activated Carbon, Zhuxi Activated Carbon, etc.. Fujian Yuanli Active Carbon, a leader of the industry, sold 53,500 tons of activated carbon in 2014, up 11.2% year on year.

Among Chinese coaly activated carbon enterprises -- Xinhua Chemical, Huahui Activated Carbon and Taixi Coal, Xinhua Chemical ranked first with the capacity of 65,000 tons in 2014. However, Datong Coal Jinding Activated Carbon may surpass Xinhua Chemical to become the champion with the annual capacity of 100,000 tons by the end of 2015.
