Stringent Environmental Regulations in Water Treatment Applications will drive the Market

Water treatment operations constantly contend with new regulations, while current regulations become more stringent. Activated carbon has been an effective treatment option for years in compliance viability of wastewater treatment. Stringent regulations regarding water treatment in oil & gas production (primarily during hydraulic fracturing) facilities in the country are significantly fuelling the demand for activated carbon in the oil & gas industry.

Medicine Application to Witness the Fastest Growth

Activated carbon is also used in medical applications. It is generally used as a feed additive in veterinary medicine, and acts as a curative agent in the medical industry. Activated carbon is also used for the recovery of active pharmaceutical ingredients (API), painkillers, antibiotics, steroids, vitamins, etc. Moreover, growing R&D activities and increasing investments in the pharmaceutical sector are expected to augment the growth of the activated carbon market.

Demand from Automotive Industry to Expand at a Fast Rate

The usage of activated carbon has increased in the automotive industry as it is used as an effective medium to control evaporative loss emissions, removing organics, odors, vehicle exhaust fumes, etc. With the rapid growth in the automotive production in the country, the demand for activated carbon from the sector is expected to increase massively.
