  • South America activated carbon market is expected to register a CAGR of 6.04 %, during the forecasted period, 2018-2023. Growing consumption of activated carbon in automotive production, along with increasing usage in mining sector is expected to drive the market during the forecasted period.

    Increasing Usage in Water Treatment Applications

    Growing usage of activated carbon in water treatment is driving the demand for activated carbon in South America. Different contaminants present in water are removed by activated carbon either by adsorption or catalytic reduction. Additionally, activated carbon removes nuisance odors that occur in wastewater plants, where biological activity creates hydrogen sulfide (H2S), ammonia (NH3), VOCs, etc. Activated carbon is currently one of the most effective methods for treatment of municipal or industrial wastewater. Furthermore, Argentina has extremely advanced urban water management technologies in place, owing its ‘Integrated urban water management’ in the capital city. Thus, the growing usage of both powdered and granular activated carbon in water treatment are driving the demand for activated carbon during the forecast period.

    Robust Demand from Industrial Processing

    Activated carbon in industrial processing is used for a variety of processes involving purification, recovery, and removal of substances at every stage of processing. The applications of activated carbon in industrial processing are found in liquid chemicals, catalyst process, gas processing, water processing, and bio-based chemicals. Different types of activated carbon such as coal, coconut, granular, powdered and high purity acid washed activated carbons are used for these industrial-processing applications. Additionally, activated carbon also acts as a catalyst to support industrial processes, like production and destruction of phosgene, production of glyphosate, which is increasing the consumption of the activated carbon market in the industrial processing sector.

    Brazil to Dominate the Market

    Brazil has the largest market for activated carbon in South America and is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period. Brazil is third largest in the manufacturing sector in the Americas. There are various industries like automotive, steel, petrochemicals, etc. In industrial processing sector, activated carbon is used for a variety of processes involving purification, recovery, and removal of substances at every stage of processing. Furthermore, the established mining sector, along with automotive industry, has been aiding in increasing the demand for activated carbon in Brazil in recent years.
