US demand for activated carbon, including virgin and reactivated products sold by activated carbon suppliers, is expected to rise 3.5 percent per year to 970 million pounds in 2020. In dollar terms, demand is projected to reach $1.1 billion in the same year. Forecast growth is expected to be considerably slower than the gains seen in the 2010-2015 period, when the market for activated carbon significantly expanded in response to two key environmental regulations: the Disinfection Byproducts (DBP) Rule and the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS).

This study analyzes the US activated carbon market. It presents historical demand data (2005, 2010 and 2015) plus forecasts (2020 and 2025) by type (powdered, granular), application (liquid phase, gas phase) and US region. The study also considers key market environment factors, assesses the industry structure and evaluates company market share.
