Activated Carbon Industry 2016: Global Market Size, Share, Growth and Forecast to 2020

Press release   •   May 03, 2016 02:27 EDT

Activated carbon, a functional carbon material with properties of physical and chemical adsorption, can be divided into coal-based activated carbon, wood-based activated carbon, and other activated carbons.

In 2015, global activated carbon capacity approximated 2.1 million tons (mainly distributed in China, the United States, Japan, and Europe), compared with total demand of only about 1.547 million tons, indicating a huge excess capacity across the entire industry and further capacity integration or elimination in the future.

As the world’s largest producer of activated carbon, China’s capacity and output of activated carbon reached roughly 900,000 tons and about 628,000 tons (up 6.6% year on year) respectively in 2015, with autilization of 69.8%. Driven by environmental protection and automobile industries, China’s activated carbon industry will continue to grow steadily in the future at an output CAGR of around 7.4% during 2016-2020.

Leading Activated Carbon Companies Worldwide: Calgon, Cabot, Meadwestvaco, Kuraray, Osaka Gas Chemicals Group etc.

Leading Wood-based and Coal-based Activated Carbon Enterprises in China are Fujian Yuanli Active Carbon, Fujian Xinsen Carbon, Fujian Zhixing Activated Carbon, QuzhouYunhe Carbon, GuizhouQianmin Activated Carbon, Datong Coal Jinding Activated Carbon, Shanxi Xinhua Chemical, Ningxia Huahui Activated Carbon, Inner Mongolia Taixi Coal, Shanxi Huaqing Activated Carbon and Others.

Besides satisfying domestic demand, about 1/3 of China-made activated carbon is exported. The country exported 251,000 tons of activated carbon, including 58,000 tons of wood-based activated carbon, mainly to Japan, Peru, and Indonesia, and 193,000 tons of other activated carbons, primarily to Japan, South Korea, and Belgium.

Water treatment and food & beverage are two application fields of activated carbon in China, together making up 60.2% of total demand in 2015, with the former mainly adopting granular activated carbon and the latter powdered activated carbon.

Major global activated carbon manufacturers include U.S. Calgon, Cabot, and Meadwestvaco, Japanese Kuraray and Osaka Gas, French CECA, and Chinese Fujian Yuanli Active Carbon, Datong Coal Mining Jinding Activated Carbon, and Shanxi Xinhua Chemical. Calgon is the world’s largest activated carbon producer with a 21.2% global market share, Fujian Yuanli Active Carbon is the largest wood-based activated carbon maker in China, seizing about 21.7% of the Chinese wood-based activated carbon market, and Datong Coal Mining Jinding Activated Carbon is the country’s largest coal-based activated carbon manufacturer, occupying 16.7% or so of the segment in China.
