DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/x82k3n/global_activated) has announced the addition of the "Global Activated Carbon Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.
The Global Activated Carbon market to grow at a CAGR of 10.78% over the period 2014-2019
Activated carbon is an organic material with a high content of carbon such as wood, coal, wood, and coconut shells. The activation process involves carbonization of raw materials followed by thermal decomposition, which leads to the development of porosity and, thus, a high adsorption power. Activated carbon is used in a wide range of applications that primarily involve the treatment of gas, liquid, or vapor, and to remove any unwanted adsorbates.
One key trend emerging in this market is the growing importance of the APAC region. Countries such as China and India are expected to be key exporters of activated carbon. Also, the domestic consumption in the APAC region is expected to increase because of growing adoption of activated carbon for various applications.
According to the report, increased demand for activated carbon for mercury control has elevated the growth of the Global Activated Carbon market. Many vendors in the market have enhanced their portfolio to include products such as powdered activated carbon, which aids in industrial air purification by removing mercury.
Further, the report states that shortage of raw materials is one of the key challenges that the market faces. Such raw material shortages have resulted in increased procurement costs for vendors, thereby resulting in a negative influence on their profit margins.
