High Growth Forecasted for the World Activated Carbon Market

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - June 23, 2008) - Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report related to the Chemicals industry industry is available in its catalogue.

World Activated Carbon Market

http://www.reportlinker.com/p090365/World-Activated-Carbon-Market.html

Global demand to rise 5.2% annually through 2012

World demand for virgin activated carbon is forecast to expand 5.2 percent per year through 2012 to 1.2 million metric tons. The US, China and Japan will together continue to account for almost half of global demand in 2012, although China will expand its market share from 15 percent to 18 percent while the US and Japan will see a reduction in their respective market shares. Western Europe will also remain an important albeit slow growing market. Activated carbon demand will benefit from a continuing intensification of the global environmental movement as well as rapid industrialization in much of the developing world. Government regulation changes and enforcement will significantly impact demand in environmentally driven applications.

Water treatment to remain most common application

Water treatment applications will continue to account for the largest share of global activated carbon demand in 2012, although gains of 4.5 percent per year in this sector will lag all other key markets. Besides the necessity for clean drinking water, government environmental regulations that vary by region (such as the US Disinfection Byproducts Rule that was promulgated in 2006) also impact this market significantly. Other environmental applications for activated carbon with strong growth potential include flue gas treatment from power plants and hazardous waste remediation. In developing countries, emission cannister control regulations for motor vehicles will also bolster activated carbon demand in a similar manner to that experienced by most developed countries over the 2002-2007 period.

More Details

Granular activated carbon to outpace powdered types

Powdered activated carbon (PAC), which has historically accounted for the largest share of overall activated carbon demand (due to its dominance in liquid phase applications and its lower cost) will register slower gains than granular activated carbon (GAC) through 2012. The main advantage of GAC is its ability to be regenerated, which is especially important in Western Europe. Although faster growth in granular activated carbon demand through 2012 will benefit the regeneration sector, this will be offset to some extent by cheaper imports from China and other Asian countries that will reduce the economic incentive to regenerate.

Asian countries are key activated carbon exporters

China accounted for 38 percent of global activated carbon production in 2007. A majority of the country's output is exported, in spite of dumping-related duty imposition on Chinese steam activated carbon imports by the US and EU in recent years. The US accounted for 22 percent of global production in 2007 and ran a close to break even trade position in these products. Asian countries such as Sri Lanka, Thailand, the Philippines and Indonesia are particularly important producers and net exporters of activated carbon made from coconut husks.

Study coverage

This new Freedonia industry study, World Activated Carbon, is available for $5700. It presents historical demand data for the years 1997, 2002 and 2007 plus forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by type (e.g., granular, powdered); application (liquid phase, gas phase); market (e.g., water treatment, food and beverage processing, industrial, pharmaceutical and medical, motor vehicle); world region and for 17 countries. The study also considers market environment factors, assesses industry structure, evaluates company market share data and profiles 31 competitors in the industry worldwide.
