The global drinking water adsorbents market size is expected to reach USD 603.9 million by 2025, registering a CAGR of 4.0% over the forecast period, according to a new report published by Grand View Research, Inc. Increasing demand for activated carbon for filtration of drinking water, owing to its advanced properties and low cost is predicted boost the product demand.
Rising focus on the use of natural raw materials, such as coconut shell, wood, plant waste for production of activated carbon in order to develop environmentally sustainable product is anticipated to create growth opportunities for the market in the forthcoming years. Fluctuation in prices of aluminium hydroxide, which is a primary raw material in production of alumina is expected to influence the product prices.
The rising level of water contamination has forced governments across the globe to impose strict waste treatment and pollution control norms to reduce the contamination of groundwater and water resources. These norms and regulations mandate industries to adopt environmentally-friendly and efficient water treatment and disposal methods.
The market is facing challenges in disposal of spent adsorbents, as they are classified as hazardous materials, since metal ions attached to these adsorbents poses a risk for direct disposal. Hence, these materials are typically treated by stabilization or solidification before landfilling, which adds significant cost to the overall operation.
