Market Overview:

The global industrial adsorbents market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for industrial adsorbents from various end-use industries, such as refining, air separation, natural gas, petrochemicals, and others. In terms of type, molecular sieves are expected to lead the global industrial adsorbents market during the forecast period. This can be attributed to their high efficiency and ability to remove moisture and other impurities from various process streams.

Global Industrial Adsorbents Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

industrial adsorbents are materials used to remove pollutants from air or water. They can be natural or synthetic and are often granular or powdered.

Molecular Sieves:

Molecular sieves are a group of materials that consists of porous and microporous solids, which have large surface area and pore size distribution. The product is used in adsorbents owing to its unique physical properties such as high surface area, porosity, low density and high permeability. These features make it an ideal material for use in separation processes where selectivity is important.


Alumina is a widely used adsorbent in the global industrial adsorbents market. It is available in various forms including powder, pellets, and flakes. Alumina has applications as gas absorbents and chemical absorbents owing to its large surface area, high porosity, low cost & purity along with good thermal stability.

Application Insights:

Refining emerged as the dominant application segment in 2017 and accounted for a share of over 40.0% in terms of revenue. Various adsorbents are used along with refinery catalyst to improve the overall performance of these processes by minimizing impurities and other contaminants to increase the yield from each barrel of crude oil processed at refineries.

Petroleum & chemical processing is anticipated to remain one of the fastest-growing segments over the forecast period owing to rising demand for petrochemicals products across various end-use industries worldwide.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global industry in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region is home to several emerging economies, such as China, India, and Japan. Increasing industrialization coupled with rapid urbanization has resulted in a growing demand for energy across Asia Pacific. This factor is anticipated to drive product demand from 2018 to 2030.

The Middle East & Africa market was valued at USD X million in 2017 and is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing high oil production across countries like Saudi Arabia and UAE along with rising petrochemical capacities in Egypt & Nigeria & Algeria among others are anticipated fuel further growth of this regional market during the same period.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from end-use industries such as oil & gas, petrochemicals, and power generation
  • Growing popularity of activated carbon for water treatment and purification
  • Rising concerns over air quality and environmental pollution
  • Proliferation of nanotechnology in adsorbent manufacturing
  • Development of new applications for industrial adsorbents
