Market Overview:

The global mercury removal adsorbents market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth of this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for mercury removal adsorbents from various applications, such as natural gas fields, flue gas, and others. In addition, the growing awareness about environmental pollution and its effects is also propelling the growth of this market. On the basis of type, technical molybdenum oxide held a major share in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period. This can be attributed to its high efficiency in removing mercury from various applications.

Global Mercury Removal Adsorbents Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Mercury Removal Adsorbents are materials used to remove mercury from a gas stream. Mercury Removal Adsorbents are important because they protect the environment from mercury pollution.

Technical Molybdenum Oxide:

Technical molybdenum oxide (TMRO) is a by-product of the manufacturing process of technical grade tungsten and molybdenum. It has high adsorption capacity for mercury, owing to which it is used in the preparation of adsorbents for removal or reduction of toxic heavy metals from liquid effluents. The product finds application in various industries including power generation, chemical processing, and automotive among others.

High Pure Molybdenum Oxide:

High pure molybdenum oxide is a new material, which has been developed by the research department of Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation. It was patented in Japan on April 16, 1996 and was published for the world wide protection on September 15, 1996. The patent specification states that HPMO is a new compound and it’s different from any other product known to man.

Application Insights:

Natural gas fields were the largest application segment in 2016 and accounted for over 40% of the total demand. The rising need to curb greenhouse gases in order to meet global warming targets has resulted in increased focus on natural gas production, which is projected to drive the market growth over the forecast period.

The others application segment includes waste heat boilers and steel mills among other industries such as cement and iron & steel. Boilers require very large amounts of HgO that are used as an adsorbent for flue gasses containing Mercury because it does not get involved itself but helps remove toxic gases from flue gasses by bonding with them thus making them less harmful towards human health.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to witness a growth rate of 4.6% over the forecast period, which can be attributed to increasing natural gas production and growing shale gas reserves in the U.S., particularly in Pennsylvania and New York states.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to emerge as a lucrative regional market over the next eight years owing to rapid industrialization along with increasing energy requirements coupled with economic development witnessed by various countries such as China and India are some of the major factors driving industry expansion across this region since past few years.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from various industries for mercury removal
  • Growing awareness about the harmful effects of mercury and its safe disposal
  • Stringent government regulations on mercury emissions and its safe handling and disposal
  • Development of new and more efficient mercury removal adsorbents technologies
  • Rising prices of raw materials used in manufacturing mercury removal adsorbents
