Activated Carbon Filters Market Overview

The global activated carbon filters market is projected to showcase a strong growth during the forecast period (2021–2030), on account of increasing focus toward water purification technologies, along with stringent regulations imposed by governments for releasing treated wastewater. Additionally, surging focus toward reducing industrial waste discharge is projected to boost the adoption of activated carbon filters in coming years.

The activated carbon filters market is categorized into stainless steel shell, carbon steel shell, and others, on the basis of type. Among these, the stainless steel shell category is expected to account for a significant market share by 2030. This can be ascribed to the advantageous properties of such filters, which include resistance to extreme temperature, high corrosion resistance, high mechanical strength, and high permeability.

The activated carbon filters market is categorized, on the basis of application, into industrial water pollution treatment, drinking water purification, food & beverage, pharmaceutical, and others. Of these, the industrial water pollution treatment category is expected to account for a significant share in the market in coming years. Governments across the globe, along with environmental agencies, are focusing on the treatment of industrial waste discharge, wherein activated carbon filters are required in high volume. With the increasing market activities, such as manufacturing, production, and investments, the demand for such filters for the industrial water pollution treatment application is projected to increase in future.

Geographically, the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region is expected to lead the activated carbon filters market throughout the forecast period. This can be ascribed to the rapid surge of industrial activities in developing countries, such as China, India, Thailand, and Indonesia, wherein there is a high volume of industrial waste discharge from industries. In order to treat this, activated carbon filters are used. Therefore, such factors are expected to propel the market in the region during the forecast period.

Activated Carbon Filters Market Dynamics


The activated carbon filters market is projected to witness a strong growth, on account of increasing focus of governments and environmental organizations toward the treatment of high-volume industrial waste discharge from industries. In order to re-use industrial wastewater, its collection and treatment is of high importance. Activated carbon filters have the ability to remove unwanted particles and eliminate odor as well as impurities from the discharge. Hence, with the rise in industrial activities, the consumption of activated carbon filters is also projected to increase during the forecast period.


Inability of activated carbon filters to remove chemicals, such as sodium, nitrates, heavy metals, and fluoride, which are not filtered by such filters, is projected to restrain the activated carbon filters market growth. This, in turn, is likely to confine the usage of these filters for drinking water purification and food & beverage applications.
