Global wood activated carbon market is anticipated to foresee high growth on account of its use in water purification applications as well as food & beverage industry. Increasing number of food & beverage companies particularly in developing economies including India and China is anticipated to boost wood activated carbon demand over the next seven years. Key chemicals employed in the activation of wood include phosphoric acid and zinc chloride. Production of wood activated carbon is primarily concentrated in India, Malaysia and China on account of rising number of wood processing units in the region and easy availability of raw material.

Furthermore, regulations put forth by national governments and various agencies including EPA and EU regarding waste water treatment is anticipated to boost wood activated carbon market particularly in North America and Europe. Rising demand for potable water especially in South American and African countries is likely to be a major driver for wood activated carbon over the next seven years. Hard as well as soft wood including birch, maple, coconut, hickory and palm are employed in this process, however, condensed steam is used to increase the porosity of wood which is a tedious, expensive and time consuming process. This is anticipated to hamper the wood activated carbon market over the projected period. In addition, chemical treatments using wood activated carbon aids in reduction of BOD and COD level in water bodies, which in turn help in the protection of aquatic flora and fauna life.
