Zeolite Adsorbents Market Overview
The term zeolite represent a group of hydrated aluminosilicates of the alkaline or alkali earth metals, which are mostly calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium. Zeolite adsorbents have three-dimensional crystalline structure that form pores and cavity on the surface, which offer it good adsorption properties.
There are two types of zeolite adsorbent including natural and synthetic, natural zeolite adsorbents are formed during volcanic activities on the other hand synthetic zeolite have manufactured in industry by hydrothermal process.
Zeolite adsorbents have high ion exchange capacity and allows vapor & odor absorbency as it gives large internal surface area due to which it adsorbs larger quantities than any other adsorbents. Owing to its outstanding adsorption properties zeolite adsorbents are also called as universal adsorbent.
Zeolite adsorbents are mostly used in almost all sectors such as chemical industry, agriculture and animal husbandry, water processing, biotechnology, medicine, oil and natural gas industry, construction industry, and others.
Zeolite adsorbents are mostly used in municipal wastewater treatment and drinking water treatment for adsorption of impurities. Zeolite adsorbents soften the water by trapping impurities which may be physical or chemical. Zeolite adsorbents are used for adsorption of ammonia, radioactive cations, heavy metal cations as well as purification of gaseous hydrocarbons. Zeolite adsorbents binds and immobilizes liquids, solid particles and gases.
For instance, zeolite remove sulfur dioxide from air, adsorb radioactive cations like cesium and strontium, also entraps benzene, other aromatics, carbon dioxide from petroleum products. Zeolite adsorbents have cost effective, light weight and easy to handle. Zeolite adsorbents protect environment from harmful emission of gases and liquids.
Zeolite Adsorbents Market: Dynamics
With increasing environmental rules & regulations and health concern, adoption of zeolite adsorbents is become beneficiary for end user industries. The rules for emission of hazardous gases and industrial liquid directly into environment has become stringent owing to which industries are focusing on adopting sustainable process and adoption zeolite adsorbents for removing impurities which is cheap and easy.
This offer significant opportunity to zeolite adsorbents market to grow in the near future. Water treatment segment accounts for the prominent share of zeolite adsorbents market as zeolite is primarily used in municipal waste water treatment, sweeting of drinking water, in major countries.
With increasing water treatment demand, zeolite adsorbents are expected to shows lucrative growth in the forecast period. Growing adoption zeolite adsorbent water filters offer profitable are further expected to drive the demand for zeolite adsorbents in the foreseeable future.
In terms of product type segment, synthetic zeolite adsorbents have shown substantial growth due to its increasing consumption in various chemical industries such as petroleum refinery, petrochemical industry, and others. Moreover, it is preferred over other adsorbents as it separate unwanted chemical by adsorption in cost effective manner.
Some limitations such as the high costs of transportation, volatile price of raw materials and availability of alternative materials in specific areas of industrial application may hindered the demand of zeolite adsorbents.
COVID-19 crisis Impact
The ongoing Covid-19 crisis caused market conditions to change and slowed down technological development and the launch of new production capacities, and made it more difficult to market new products based on zeolite materials. The chemical industry is also affected by this current crisis and shows defeat in economy but this downfall is expected to recover in coming assessment period by using preferred growth strategy acquire by the end user.
In terms of end user, petrochemical industry have important foothold in zeolite adsorbents and is slowly on the road to recovery from this prevailing effect of covid- 19.The major players are stabilizing there revenue via collaboration and expansion. The agriculture sector, which have significant share in zeolite adsorbents market shows rapid recovery form this enduring crisis.
This pandemic not only have negative influence but also some positive concern in zeolite adsorbents such as importance of health and hygiene among the people which growing demand of purified water significantly increases zeolite consumption in water treatment plant.
Moreover, In the near future, more research on natural zeolite and the development of new synthetic zeolites will open up possibilities for its use in areas yet unexplored, as their use requires low technological complexity and initial investment in infrastructure.
Zeolite Adsorbents Market: Regional Outlook
The countries such as China, India and Japan in Asia Pacific region dominate the zeolite adsorbents market this is due to decent growth in chemical industry, petrochemical, petroleum refinery and water treatment plants in the region.
Developed countries in North America region expected to witness significant growth rate due to increasing end user industries and sympathetic regional government regulation for industrial activities all this results into up swelling zeolite adsorbents market in North America.
Europe and Middle East & Africa region also shows lucrative growth owing to increasing application in petroleum refinery and petrochemical industry and upsurge in industrial activities in GCC countries which increase demand of zeolite adsorbents in region.
Which trend/ segment to impact more?
Increasing demand from end user industries such as chemical, water treatment, petroleum and petrochemical industry owing to the environmental regulation on hazardous gas and liquid emission is projected to impact the market growth positively. In addition to this, zeolite adsorbent are most commonly used and preferred adsorbent owing to its economic benefits.
Zeolite adsorbents market is projected to witness significant growth during the forecast period, owing to the growth prospective of end user industries demanding more adsorbents. Growing water treatment and municipal waste water plant due to which zeolite adsorbents market is expected to grow in upcoming future; however, Covid-19 pandemic slow down the zeolite adsorbents demand but this downturn is expected to gain traction by first half of 2021.
