The report covers the major adsorbents markets that include molecular sieves, activated carbon, silica gel, activated alumina, clay, and others. It further divides the market on the basis of types, applications, and geography. The major material types within this market are molecular sieves and activated carbon. The market data for these material types is given with respect to volume (kilotons) and value ($million). The market size for adsorbents was about $2.6 billion in 2012 by value, and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of about 6.1% from 2013 to 2018. The data mentioned in the report are based on the overall demand for major adsorbent categories.

The total adsorbents market has been analyzed based on Porter’s five forces model. This provides an idea of the current ongoings in the industry at a commercial level. The study provided the value chain analysis with respect to adsorbent raw materials, manufacturers, and end-uses. The value chain describes the key contributors to the materials market at different stages of product development to the end-use. It represents the top players that contribute to the adsorbents industry.

The impact of different market factors such as drivers, restraints, and opportunities has been illustrated in the report. This gives an idea of the major drivers such as stringent environmental regulations, growing purchasing power, and greater economic growth in developing countries, growth in end-use industries, increasing investment in infrastructure; and restraints such as availability and cost of specialized raw materials needed for specific adsorbents, and the economic slowdown in Europe and the U.S. thus affecting the economy of other developed countries, and others which are of key importance for the commercial success of new materials and its end-user market. The report also describes about price patterns of the major types of adsorbents.

The adsorbents market has been classified based on different applications. The major applications are petroleum refining, chemicals/petrochemicals, gas refining, water treatment, air separation & drying, packaging, and others. The air separation & drying application segment is growing and is expected to demonstrate a rapid growth in the future.

The major companies that operate in this market are BASF located in Germany, Axens and Arkema from France, U.S.-based UOP, Cabot and Calgon Carbon, and Clariant & Zeochem (Switzerland). The companies are consistently focusing on expanding their production capacity to achieve a competitive advantage and thereby serve customers effectively. Investments in R&D, followed by expansions were also seen by major players in 2012 that sequentially drives the demand of adsorbents. Their strategies to capture the market in developing economies include expansions and agreements. For example, Axens expanded their presence in Asia-Pacific through a new Malaysian subsidiary, BASF started a development center in Shanghai, Clariant opened a new lab in Brazil, and UOP invested in a new production facility in China.

The APAC region emerged to be the driving factor for this adsorbents, contributing to more than 28% of the demand. China is the second-largest country in the consumption of adsorbents due to increased demand from the water treatment, gas refining, and air separation industry. The other emerging economies such as Brazil, India, Russia, etc. are further lined up for a brighter future in this market.

The report also presents a competitive landscape that covers different strategies and developments such as merger and acquisitions, expansion, and agreements undertaken by leading adsorbent companies in the past few years. Furthermore, different adsorbent market participants have also been profiled in the report.
