Adsorbents Market in Americas 2015-2019

Adsorbents Market in Americas 2015-2019

About Adsorbents

Adsorbents are porous materials used in commercial and industrial applications to remove fluids, organic compounds, and dissolved solids from liquids and gases by adsorbing the unwanted particles onto their surface. These materials, including zeolite, activated carbon, silica gel, clay, and metal oxides, function by forming a layer of adsorbate onto the surface through adhesion. Traditionally, in the Americas, the majority of adsorbents have been consumed in refining applications in the process industries; however, owing to the recent emphasis on environmental protection, their consumption trend has shifted toward in water purification and air separation applications.

Technavio's analysts forecast the adsorbents market in the Americas to grow at a CAGR of 6.12% over the period 2014-2019.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Adsorbents Market in the Americas 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the adsorbents market in the Americas: Arkema Group, Axens, BASF, Cabot, Calgon Carbon, Clariant, W.R. Grace and UOP

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ADCOA, Advanced Emissions Solutions, Apyron Technologies, CARBOCHEM, Carbon Activated, Carbon Resources, CECA, Dow Chemical, Evonik Industries, General Carbon, Graver Technologies, GSA Resources, J.M. Huber, Kao, LG Chem, MeadWestvaco, Minerals Technologies, Mitsubishi Chemical, Multisorb Technologies, NanoPore, Nucon International, Porocel, PQ, Purolite, ResinTech, SNF Floerger, Teague Mineral Products, TIGG, Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies, Watch Water USA, Zeochem and Zeolyst International

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Despite the high prices of activated carbon, demand for activated carbon-based adsorbents for both traditional and advanced applications has rapidly increased owing to their superior adsorption and adaptability characteristics. In the Americas, these adsorbents are commercially available in granular, powdered, and pelletized forms, and have found extensive use in waste water treatment, liquid purification, and air treatment applications. However, with increasing innovation in activated carbon-based specialty adsorbents in recent years, they are now being used in new applications such as removal of mercury from air, liquid petrochemicals, industrial exhaust gases, and radioiodine removal in the nuclear energy and defense sectors.”

According to the report, as a result of increased public awareness about contamination by these substances, the governments in the Americas, especially the US government, have enforced stringent laws for wastewater treatment and dumping. Adsorbents are extensively used for treating wastewater to remove heavy metals. With public consciousness about environmental protection gradually increasing in the countries in South and Central America, the enforcement of regulations for wastewater treatment will be a major driving force for the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Further, the report states that China is the largest producer of zeolite in the global market. This poses significant threats to international manufacturers of zeolite in terms of pricing because it is the most commonly used adsorbent.
