Global adsorbent market is projected to reach $ 4.4 billion by 2024, growing at a CAGR of 6.4% during 2019-2024, mainly driven by the oil & gas, packaging, water treatment and air separation industries, owing to government regulations on wastewater treatment as well as environmental regulations about the rising levels of air pollution in the Asia-Pacific region. Adsorbents have small pore diameters, leading to a high surface area to facilitate adsorption. The adsorbents have high thermal stability as well as resistance to abrasion. Further, depending on the application, the surface can be hydrophilic or hydrophobic.

The market has been segmented based on type, application and region. Based on type, the market has been categorized into activated carbon, silica gel, molecular sieves, activated alumina, clay and others. Among the types of adsorbents, the demand for silica gel, silica gel-alumina composites, and metal oxides is anticipated to grow, owing to their efficiency coupled with better service life. Silica gel, molecular sieve and activated carbon also have the properties of desiccant, which act as an adsorbent, thereby leading to the growth of global adsorbent market. In terms of application, the market has been segmented into chemicals/petrochemicals, gas refining, petroleum refining & others.

Asia-Pacific is one of the largest markets for adsorbents, globally, with China leading the region’s adsorbent market, closely followed by India. India, which is the fastest-growing market in the world, is anticipated to outdo China in the adsorbent market in the coming years.   

Some of the key players operating in the market are Arkema S.A., Axens S.A., BASF SE, Cabot Corporation, Calgon Carbon Corporation, Clariant, W.R. Grace & Company, Graver Technologies and WestRock.
