Global Adsorbent Market: Overview
The adsorbent is a chemical that is commonly used for purification process and mainly used in industries for the same. Raw materials such as coal, coconut, silicate, and bauxite are used for manufacturing adsorbents. Distinct pore structure, resistance to high abrasion and thermal stability are some of the features of effective adsorbent. Activated alumina, clay, and activated carbon are some of the types of adsorbent. Some adsorbents may also have the qualities of the desiccant such as silica gel, clay, and others. Adsorbents are widely used in the petrochemicals industry, the pharmaceutical industry, and oil and gas refining industry. Increasing pollution and growing health concerns are some of the major factors that are increasing the demand for adsorbents in the market. The progress made in technology not only promises to improve the efficiency of the adsorbents but also escalates its demand in the market.
