Adsorbent is the chemical that is widely used by industries for the purification process. Major types of adsorbents that are used are: activated alumina, silica gel, activated carbon, molecular sieve, clay and others. These type of adsorbent such as silica gel, activated carbon, molecular sieve, activated alumina, clay also have the properties of desiccant as well. Desiccant also uses physical adsorption process like adsorbent. The global adsorbent market is projected to be worth USD 4.3 Billion by 2020, registering a CAGR of 6.3% between 2015 and 2020. In this study, 2013 has been considered as the historical year and 2014 as the base year for estimating market size of adsorbent.  The report aims at estimating the market size and future growth potential of adsorbent market across different segments such as type, application, and region.

In the secondary research process, different sources have been referred to identify and collect information for this study. These secondary sources include annual reports, press releases, and investor presentations of companies, white papers, and certified publications, articles from recognized authors. In the primary research process, sources from both supply and demand sides have been interviewed to obtain qualitative and quantitative information for this report. The bottom-up approach has been used to estimate market size of adsorbent, end-use industry, and regions, in terms of value. The top-down approach has been implemented to validate the market size, in terms of value. With the data triangulation procedure and validation of data through primaries, the exact values of the overall parent market size and individual market sizes have been determined and confirmed in this study.

The global adsorbent market size, in terms of value, is projected to reach USD 4.3 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 6.3% between 2015 and 2020.The market for adsorbent is driven by oil & gas, packaging, air separation, and water treatment industries due to government regulations on wastewater treatment and environmental regulations regarding increasing air pollution levels are expected to boost the growth of the adsorbent market in Asia-Pacific. These are the key factors driving the growth of the global adsorbent market.

Adsorbent have small pore diameters so that there is a high surface area to facilitate adsorption. Industrial adsorbents have high thermal stability and resistance to abrasion. Depending on the application, the surface may be hydrophobic or hydrophilic. Both polar and nonpolar adsorbents exist. Adsorbent is a material with diverse range of types across various applications such as petrochemicals, water treatment, air separation & drying, and others.

The global demand for adsorbent materials is increasing moderately, in which molecular sieves and activated carbon are major types. The demand for silica gel, silica gel-alumina composites, and metal oxides is anticipated to grow due to their efficiency and better service life. Molecular sieves (zeolite) account for a major share in the adsorbent market in terms of both value and volume. The silica gel, molecular sieve, activated carbon also have the properties of desiccant, which behaves like adsorbent only, which is attributing to the growth of adsorbent market, globally.

Currently, Asia-Pacific is the largest market for adsorbent, accounting for a moderate market size, by value, in 2014. Among all the countries, China dominates the adsorbent market in 2014, followed by India. India is the fastest-growing market in the world and is expected to surpass China in adsorbent market in the near future. Along with the rising demand of activated alumina in the Asia-Pacific region, silica gels and clay are also having the highest CAGR within a range 7.0-7.5% between the forecast period 2015-2020. The molecular sieves segment accounted for the largest share of 39.2% of the adsorbent market in 2014. This can be attributed to the increasing use of adsorbent in natural gas, refining, petrochemical, and air drying applications.

Adsorbents Market

Asia-Pacific region is estimated to register the highest CAGR of 6.6% between 2015 and 2020 and is mainly driven by the increasing demand for adsorbent in various applications. The growing demand for eco-friendly and economic adsorbent from major end-use industries such as petroleum refining, chemicals/petrochemicals, and gas refining have led to the growth of the adsorbent market in this region.

Companies such as such as Arkema S.A (U.K.), Axens S.A (U.K.), BASF SE (Germany), Cabot Corporation (U.S.), Calgon Carbon Corporation (U.S.), Clariant (Switzerland), W.R. Grace & Company (U.S.), Graver Technologies (U.S.), and WestRock (U.S.) are the dominant market players in the global adsorbent market. The diverse product portfolio and strategically positioned R&D centers, continuous adoption of development strategies, and technological advancements are the few factors that are responsible for strengthening the market position of these companies in the market.  These companies have been adopting various organic and inorganic growth strategies such as expansion, merger & acquisition, partnership, new product launch & product development to enhance their current market share.
