  • Country: Global
Activated carbon is a special type of charcoal processed to have pores that increase the surface area available for adsorption. It has high adsorption and catalytic properties. These properties help activated carbon for the removal of organic constituents and residual disinfectants along with lead, dissolved radon, other odour-causing compounds.


The end users of activated carbon are mainly chemical industries, water/air purifier manufacturers sewage handling plants. Activated carbon mainly works upon adsorption and catalytic reduction where pollutant molecules present in the fluid are trapped inside the porous structure of the carbon substrate. Carbon filtering is commonly used for water purification, air purification, sewage treatment and industrial gas.

Market Dynamics

The market is competitive and intense, and the competition in the market is based on factors such as price, quality, and product differentiation. Few companies deal with the maximum share and the industry has technological barriers which restrict the entry of new players in the market.
The industrialization and population growth in the world cause increase of demand of drinkable water and clean air. Developing countries like India, China, Mexico, Brazil, African countries require clean solutions to deal with these problems. Activated carbon technology can help these countries to address these problems,
Activated carbon is also used in other applications such as drug manufacturing in pharmaceutical companies, oil processing, industrial waste treatment, chemical applications etc.

Market Segmentation

The market is segmented in terms of the type of agent, application, and geography. Types of agents include Powdered Activated Carbon, Granular Activated Carbon or Pelletized Activated Carbon. Further, the market can be segmented on the basis of application as Liquid phase applications and Gaseous phase applications. Liquid phase applications include water treatment, Beverages industry, and Pharma applications while gaseous phase applications include mainly automotive and industrial applications. Liquid-based applications are the largest segment of activated carbon used mainly for water treatment.

Regional/Geographic Analysis

North America, Germany and Japan house almost all of the top activated carbon companies and themselves enjoying a dominant market share. However, rapidly developing countries such as India, China, Brazil, and Mexico are expected to provide high growth rate of activated carbon industry in future because of their high wastewater treatment requirements.


The consumers are becoming more aware of their health and environment. This is increasing the demand for the clean water, clean air, and low pollution. Activated carbon technology can be a game changer to address problems such as availability of clean water and air, sewage treatment, chemical processing etc. taking place because of rapid industrialization and population growth. Growing economies including China and India among others are investing heavily in water purification plants which are expected to raise the demand for activated carbon. Increase in growth of government subsidies and industrialization is also favourable for activated carbon sector.

Key Players

Some of the major players in the market include ADA Carbon Solutions, LLC Cabot Corporation, Calgon Carbon Corp, Carbon Activated Corp, Clarimex Group, Evoqua Water Technologies LLC.
