World Activated Carbon Industry

http://www.reportlinker.com/p090365/World-Activated-Carbon-Industry.html

Global demand to expand 9% annually through 2014

World demand for virgin activated carbon is forecast to expand an impressive 9.0 percent per annum through 2014 to 1.7 million metric tons. The US represents the largest national market for activated carbon in the world, and through 2014, the country will also pace global growth. This extremely optimistic outlook is based on US new federal environmental regulations mandating mercury removal at coal-fired power plants by 2014. A number of states have already passed their own regulations, resulting in US activated carbon demand from coal fired power plants rising significantly in 2009. If federal regulations pass, which is likely, gains are expected to really take off in 2013 and 2014.

US market to be aided by DBP & mercury control rules

Demand in the US will also be aided by regulations that will require mercury control at cement kilns and at industrial boilers. Moreover, demand from the water sector will benefit from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)'s Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBP Rule). This rule was promulgated in 2006 and establishes maximum levels at which disinfection byproducts (DBPs) are permitted to be present in drinking water supplies. DBPs are potentially harmful compounds that are formed when chlorine that is used to disinfect drinking water reacts with naturally occurring organic materials in the water. By removing the organic materials, activated carbon prevents the formation of DBPs.

China's market to be driven by economic growth

Unlike the US, where federal regulations will dictate demand growth, strong gains of around nine percent per year in China's market for activated carbon will result from continuing healthy economic growth in the country. All end uses for activated carbon in China will benefit from this economic growth. Although the country relies on coal to supply a majority of its energy requirements, US type mercury removal regulations are unlikely to pass in China in the near future.

Coal fired power plants may boost W European market

Demand for activated carbon in Western Europe and Japan will register weak gains through 2014. In Western Europe, there is some concern that coal will make a comeback (something that is already occurring in Italy) as a key source of energy supply due to declining oil and gas reserves in the North Sea, the pending end of life for some nuclear power plants in the region, and security issues and public disapproval preventing further reliance on energy imports from Russia. If coal fired power plants proliferate in Western Europe, they are likely to also use activated carbon to curtail mercury emissions.

New entrant to capture sizable portion of US market

Global supply of activated carbon is concentrated in the hands of a small number of large producers. The top eight producers supplied around three-quarters of the global market for virgin activated carbon in 2009. Most remaining producers are based in China and Southeast Asia, and typically produce low cost powdered activated carbon. A new entrant to the market, ADA-ES, intends to capture a sizable portion of US activated carbon demand arising from the mercury removal market. In 2010, the company plans to open the world's largest powdered activated carbon plant in Louisiana.
