According to a report from Transparency Market Research, the global market for activated carbon will more than double between 2012 and 2019, climbing from $1.91 billion to $4.18 billion in that time period.

Most of the demand will be driven by the use of activated carbon to meet the Mercury and Air Toxics Standard rule to reduce acid gas, mercury and other metal emissions from oil- and coal-fired power plants along with the increased use of activated carbon to eliminate heavy metal residues from industrial waste, according to the report.

Powdered activated carbon is the largest product segment because of its use in mercury removal, accounting for about 49 percent of the market in 2012.
