Activated Carbon Manufacturing

The Activated Carbon Manufacturing industry has benefited in the past five years from increased industrial production and a sharper federal government focus on environmental protection. New emission standards for power plants and other industrial facilities have spurred demand for activated carbon products, which are used to filter contaminants from water and air. Environmental regulation will also be on the rise internationally, providing new export markets for industry products. These trends, coupled with stabilized input prices, will continue to propel industry revenue over the next five years.

Companies in this industry manufacture activated carbon, which is a form of carbon that has been processed to make it extremely porous and, thus, have a very large surface area available for adsorption or chemical reactions. Activated carbon is produced from carbonaceous source materials, like nutshells, peat, wood, coir, lignite, coal and petroleum pitch and is used for a range of purposes, including gas purification and water purification.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
