Food Grade Activated Carbon Market Overview
Activated carbon finds uses in a wide variety of industrial sectors, including food & beverage, water treatment, personal care and pharmaceutical. Currently, increasing demand for filtrated and unadulterated freshwater, especially from developed and emerging regions of the world, is expected to play a crucial factor in strengthening the overall growth of the food grade activated carbon market over the forecast period.
The market for food grade activated carbon for water treatment applications has seen substantial growth over the last few years and the trend is likely to continue over the forecast period. At present, research activities are increasingly concentrating on the production of food grade activated carbon from affordable sources and eventually minimizing the adoption of costly industrial food grade activated carbon.
In addition, the mitigation of wastewater using food grade activated carbon has earned significant attention as such technical developments play a crucial role in lowering the cost of goods of food grade activated carbon and, at the same time, the cost of bio-waste disposal.
The increasing demand for activated carbon in the treatment of numerous contaminants, including dyes, ions, and a range of organic contaminants, is expected to provide a significant boost to the overall growth of the food grade activated carbon market during the forecast period.
High Adoption of Food Grade Activated Carbon in Various End-Use Sectors
Across the food & beverage market, adsorbent technologies are increasingly have been used to treat liquids. In addition, food grade activated carbon in powder form is used for decolourisation purposes and for the elimination of impurities, including organic compounds.
While food grade activated charcoal is gradually that are used in wastewater treatment, the requirement for food grade activated carbon from pharmaceuticals and personal care sectors is experiencing steady growth.
Food grade activated carbon plays an important role in removing bacteria, toxins, dirt and chemicals from the skin surface, as a result of which many companies across the personal care sector are moving towards the use of activated carbon in their goods – a factor that is expected to contribute to activated carbon market development over the forecast period.
In addition, food grade activated charcoal has also gained significant interest from cosmetic firms, as it removes blackheads and acne and more. Food grade activated carbon used in food products may contribute to reduced consumption of vitamins, gastrointestinal side effect and lower absorption of drugs.
As a result, the drawbacks of the use of food grade activated carbon in food products may impede the global demand for food grade activated carbon over the forecast period. People have adopted food grade activated carbon dioxide as an appropriate method to cure many of the conditions. It is used in toothpaste for its whitening qualities and in skin care products for its capacity to absorb toxins.
Perhaps one of the most effective ways people use food grade activated charcoal is by applying it to their food. It traps contaminants and chemicals in the intestines and, since it is not consumed by the body, activated carbon dioxide along with the toxic compounds it retains on its surface is extracted by feces.
