The report covers the major activated carbon market which includes primarily powdered and granular segments. The powdered activated carbon market segment is the fastest growing area within the global market. It has been gaining importance with its major application in the areas of water treatment and air purification; the duo being its major end use. The qualitative analysis with respect to its characteristics, process of production, and regeneration is done in an elaborative manner.

Mercury removal in power plants is gaining importance as a key revenue generator. Regulatory authorities implying directives for mercury removal in power plants have led to a fast growth and acceptance of products. Regulations are being implemented in the regions of Europe and U.S. at a significant pace and are also gaining importance in Asian regions as well. The policies and regulation implied by different authorities for supporting production are also discussed in the study.

Within the applications market, gas phase application is expected to grow at a significant growth rate over the studied period. Automotive, air purification, water treatment, pharmaceutical & medical, and food & beverage applications are some of the important fields for the market. The report analyzes the market with respect to market drivers, opportunities, and winning imperatives related to the industry.

Activated carbon is also analyzed with respect to the value chain which starts from the raw materials used for the manufacturing followed by product forms, distribution network, end usage, and sales services. Import and export has been gaining importance with its increasing demand. The Asian countries are one of the key exporters in the dominating markets of U.S. It becomes vital to study about the countries which export activated carbon to big markets such as U.S. and which have become favorites for the past few years. The report studies the export scenario of the Asian market from global as well as U.S. perspective. It also focuses on the U.S. imports which give an idea about the countries which are exporting to the biggest market.

One of the key challenges in the market is the shortage of raw materials such as coconut shell charcoal which is used for making of activated carbon. In Sri Lanka, there has been an increment of around 50% in the prices of coconut shell charcoal between 2010 to 2011. The major raw materials used for production are coal, wood, coconut shells, and lignite. The report gives a qualitative analysis about these materials with respect to their characteristics and applications. It also explains the factors on the basis of which the raw material selection is done. Market share analysis along with analysis of patent for the last five years is also done in the market study.

The key segments for the activated carbon market are powdered and granular. The reports studies these segments with respect to its value ($million) and volume (thousand metric tons) markets. The study is done considering the demand for these materials in different regions, including North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), and Rest of the World (RoW). Qualitatively, the products including powdered & granular, and pelletized are studied with respect to their individual applications.

The global activated carbon market is also segmented with respect to different geographical regions, including North America, Europe, APAC, and RoW. The study analyzes the market for these regions as well and gives value and volume for different product types. It also gives an idea about the key players in each geography for representing a competitive environment in the regional markets.
