By Business Wire News   


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Global Activated Carbon Market – Segmented by Product Type, End-User Industry, and Geography – Trends and Forecasts (2015-2020)” report to their offering.

The Global Activated Carbon market was valued at $2.41 billion in 2014 and is expected to reach a value of $4.46 billion by 2020, showing a compound annual growth rate of 10.8%.

In terms of tonnage, the global market was 1.56 million metric tons in 2014. Asia Pacific dominated the global activated carbon market, accounting for over 40% of total volumes in 2014, with China being a leading exporter, accounting for over 35% of total Asian activated carbon exports in 2014.

The report predicts the major driver for this market to be growing use in the elimination of heavy metals from industrials because of the rise in alarms over the worsening environmental standards. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued the Mercury and Air Toxics Standard, which focuses on halting the presence of mercury, acid gas, and some other common metal emissions from oil and coal powered plants. This is expected to boost the growth of the global activated carbon market in the near future.

One of the key challenges in the market is the shortage of raw materials such as coconut shell charcoal, which is used for the making of activated carbon.
