Report Highlights

  • The commercial applications market for the top five types of inorganic nanoporous and microporous adsorbents covered presently is more than $1.77 billion. The market is expected to rise at an AAGR (average annual growth rate) of 3.7% to $2.12 billion in 2009.
  • Zeolites account for nearly 61% of the total market and thus, heavily influence overall market growth rates downward.
  • Air and water purification applications consume the majority of granular activated carbon (GAC) production. The GAC segment is projected to rise at an AAGR of 4.6%.
  • Activated alumina adsorbents make common catalyst support in the chemical processing industry while silica gels are the most common desiccants and drying agents.

Report Highlights

  • The market value in North America for the top six types of inorganic microporous adsorbents is nearly $1.78 billion in 2001.
  • A 3.1% average annual growth rate (AAGR) is forecast for this relatively mature materials class resulting in a market of $2.07 billion by 2006.
  • Water and air purification applications consume the majority of granular activated carbon production, which constitutes nearly one-fifth of the total market size and is projected to grow at 3.8%.
  • Zeolites account for nearly 62% of the total market and thus heavily influence overall growth rates. Overcapacity in low-end zeolites and reduced obsolescence of improved high-end products will limits its growth rate to 2.5% through 2006.
  • Clay usage as adsorbents will be growing at a rate of 3.4% to a market size of $52 million in 2006.
