The global Adsorbents market is forecast to reach USD 5.9 Billion by 2027. Adsorption is the process in which atoms, ions, or molecules from a dissolved solid, liquid, or gas adhere to a targeted surface. The market is driven by the rising demand for adsorbents in many petroleum refineries. It is the most efficient separation method which is widely used in the petrochemical refineries. The increasing technological developments in the manufacturing of cost-effective adsorbents, this will generate high revenues in the global adsorbents market in the forecast timeframe. The rising demand in the energy sector will be crucial for the growth of the adsorbents market. Extension of the chemical process industry in many developing economies such as China, India, Brazil represents a golden chance for massive growth of the adsorbents market.
The constant fluctuation in the oil and gas prices will negatively impact the market. The oil prices have declined sharply owing to the political uncertainties of the major oil-producing nations such as Russia, Venezuela, and Saudi Arabia. This decline will recover if the production is lowered during the price war between the major oil-producing countries, which will drive the adsorbents market ahead.
Regional Outlook (Revenue, USD Billion; 2017-2027)
- North America
- Asia Pacific
- Middle-East & Africa
- Latin America
Key Takeaways from the report
- The petrochemical industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 5%; the industry is already worth several hundred billion. The widespread use of adsorbent in the industry will drive the growth of the adsorbents market shortly. Better efficient adsorbents in the industry will also help the market flourish. Petrochemicals also have a considerable usage capacity for adsorbents. Adsorbents are used in dehydration and purification of ethane/NGL/propane feed.
- The rising water demands in the water accompanied by the decrease in groundwater level, the wastewater treatment industry is forecasted to show remarkable growth in the period. The extensive use of adsorbents in water treatment plants will help the adsorbents market to show significant development.
- The market has a large chunk of its share in the oil and gas sector, but it also finds its use in many fast-moving consumer goods as well. Adsorbents application as small desiccants is used to protect products such as pharmaceuticals, vitamins, food, and many more consumer goods. Odor or taste can be removed from many personal care products and plastics with high silica zeolite molecular sieves, and these odors are adsorbed.
