Wood Activated Carbon Market to witness a double digit CAGR of 10% over 2017-2024, Europe to stand as a major growth ground

Wood activated carbon market applications are segmented based on product usage which include fluid adsorption, decolorization, purification, and others. Other applications comprise deodorizing, solvent recycling, etc. Among these, fluid adsorption and purification will have a combined share of over 55% in this segment in 2024.

Wood Activated Carbon Market Size will surpass USD 500 million by 2024. The changes in regulatory norms regarding the control of harmful gas emission is the key factor for industry growth in forecast timeframe. Nearly 80% of mercury and other harmful gas emission comes from the manufacturing units, mines, and other thermal power plants and almost all regional governments are cracking down on this issue. Increasing pressure from the government for maintaining the air quality and reducing the mercury level will spur the wood activated carbon market demand in the near future. This is due to the superior features which include low cost, ease of availability, extreme purity, and high filtration strength. As compared to other regions, Asia Pacific led by China and India, and Europe are on the top of the list for significant product consumption owing to presence of myriad manufacturing units.

Strict norms regarding the cutting down of trees for the production of wood activated carbon will be a major restraining factor for the industry growth in coming years. Regulatory bodies include United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Institute for Rural Settlement and Agrarian Reform (INCRA), Institute of Man and Environment of Amazonia (IMAZON), National Institute for Space Research (INPE), etc. in Latin America and Europe will restrict the industry growth by implementing various rules to save the flora and fauna.

Wood activated carbon market has been segregated based on product, application, end-user and region. The product segment comprises powdered and granular wood activated carbon. Among these, powdered form will hold over two-thirds of the entire wood activated carbon industry in 2024. Powdered form of the product is cheaper than granular one and find its usage for water and air purification as it has superior adsorption, high filtration and purification strength.

The major end-user segments include air treatment, water treatment, food & beverage, and pharmaceutical. Minor industries include automotive, chemical, gold mining, etc. and have been considered in the others segment. In terms of revenue, water treatment is likely to generate more than USD 200 million in 2024. This is due to the excessive usage of the product in water treatment plants owing to the superior intrinsic properties.
