Types of Adsorbents:
Major adsorbents types used for different applications are activated alumina, activated charcoal, activated coal, alumina silica gel, metal oxides, molecular sieves, polymer adsorbents, zeolites and others. Zeolite is a naturally occurred adsorbent that is slightly processed for the commercial applications. It has the major market share in the adsorbents market for 2015. The major producers for zeolite are China, South Korea, Japan, Jordan, U.S. and Turkey.
The activated alumina adsorbent market is major in the APAC region during the period 2015-2021. Activated alumina is also used as desiccant, catalyst and catalyst support. Activated clay had the major share in APAC region for 2015. It is majorly used in industries such as nutraceuticals, diagnostics, pharmaceuticals, medical, food, confectionary and electronics.
Market Driving Factors:
Demand for Adsorbents from Oil & Gas and Chemicals/Petrochemicals Applications Due To High Shale Oil and Gas Production in North America
Adsorbents are used in oil & gas refining, water treatment, air separation, VOC removal and many other applications. Crude deliveries from oil sands and heavy reservoirs contain numerous contaminants elements which need to be removed during the refining process. Adsorbents are used to separate the hosting contaminants such as CS2, H2S, HF, oxygenates, ammonia, nitrogen and sulphur compounds from hydrocarbon streams in diverse refinery applications. Adsorbents market has the major share in North America due to the high oil production from U.S. and Canada from shale sources.
In chemicals/petrochemicals application, adsorbents are used to preserve and enhance the chemicals stability. In air separation application, the adsorbents are used to produce high purity gases such as O2, N2, H2 and CO. Adsorbents in air separation application for APAC region is estimated to grow at a high CAGR 5.4% during the forecast period 2016-2021.
Geographical Outlook of the Market:
Asia-Pacific (APAC) region was the major market for adsorbent market and is estimated to grow at a high growth rate during the forecast period 2016-2021. In the APAC region, China, India and Japan are the major markets for adsorbents industry. North America, which followed APAC in adsorbent market, has a definite potential due to increase in demand for adsorbents in oil & gas refining and chemicals/petrochemicals applications. With several legislations in Europe related to nuclear waste handling such as Radioactive Substances Act 1993 (RSA93), Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2010, pull the demand for adsorbents in the region during the forecast period.
In this report, the market has been segmented by geography as North America, Europe, APAC and Rest of the World (RoW). Market size and forecasts are provided for each of these regions. A detailed qualitative analysis of the factors responsible for driving and restraining growth of adsorbent market and opportunities for the future is provided in the report.
