Global charcoal market: Increasing demand for industrial wastewater treatment

Factors such as growing population, globalization, and rapid urbanization in many developing countries has led to the emergence of several industries. The rapid industrialization has led to increased water contamination in many countries. The growth of industries such as F&B, oil and gas, power, mining, refineries, steel manufacturing, electronics, and pharmaceutical have increased the need for treatment of wastewater. The wastewater treatment process involves the elimination of contaminants using activated carbon. The rapid industrialization is expected to increase the demand for activated carbon for wastewater treatment, thereby driving the growth of the global charcoal market size.

“EMEA is providing a significant number of growth opportunities for charcoal manufacturers. The consumption of charcoal in the region is expected to increase with the rise in support instruments such as grants, subsidies, and incentives on the use of renewable energy sources. In APAC, factors such as the rapid growth in infrastructure and industrialization in countries such as China and India have increased the demand for activated charcoal.
