The wood activated carbon market size is estimated to increase due to the growing demand for water treatment due to its lower carbon content, non-toxicity, low impurities, high porosity, and other properties. Fortune Business InsightsTM has presented this information in its upcoming report titled, “Wood Activated Carbon Market, 2022-2029”. Additionally, the wood activated carbon’s macro and mesopores aid in the decolorization of liquids and water. It is widely used in a variety of applications, including food & beverage decolorization, water treatment, surface & wastewater treatment, and others.

COVID-19 Impact –

The emergence of COVID-19 is expected to hold down investments in the water sector around the world, with a few exceptions. The high cost of downtime and operational reliability has become more important than ever. Furthermore, the COVID-19 shock hit the world’s poorest people on top of substantial urban water and sanitation service shortfalls, implying a potentially overwhelming load to contain the virus.

Drivers & Restraints –

Water Purification Efforts To Promote Market Growth

The wood activated carbon market share is predicted to increase due to rising demand for wood activated carbon for water treatment, which is ascribed to its non-toxicity, high porosity, reduced carbon content, decreased impurity content, and other factors. Water contamination and a shortage of safe drinking water are problems in several economies. In such economies, an increase in water-purification efforts will promote market growth. Furthermore, government restrictions governing the content of inorganic salts and disinfectants in drinking water are expected to dramatically boost demand for wood activated carbon.

However, environmental worries about deforestation exist. Forests are the primary supply of wood and are heavily exploited for charcoal production. This is expected to be a stumbling block to market expansion.

Regional Insights –

Asia Pacific to Hold the Largest Chunk of the Global Market

In terms of both production and consumption, Asia Pacific is predicted to have the greatest share of the market owing to rapid industrialization and high demand for food & beverages. North America is predicted to increase significantly as a result of the strict regulations governing the quality of clean potable water. The demand for surface and water treatment applications is likely to drive the wood activated carbon market growth in Europe. By the end of the projected period, Latin America and the Middle East and Africa would be experiencing slow development.
