Activated Carbon Fiber (ACF) Market Revenue & Regional Analysis | 2022-2027

The global activated carbon fiber (ACF) market is poised to register lucrative proceeds through the coming years, owing to the rising requirement for various types of masks amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Various research studies related to the use of carbon fibers in facemasks have been instrumental in propelling industry growth.

Numerous industry manufacturers are formulating product launch strategies for the enhancement of product penetration. In this regard, a health technology firm, Philips’ global brand partner, AquaShield, was in news in April 2021 for the launch of filtration water bottles, dubbed Philips GoZero Everyday Insulated and Tritan Plastic.

The product has been designed with the help of an ACF filter, which affects the instant transformation of tap water into clean drinking water. This is done by the effective reduction of chlorine and other particles that might be present in tap water.

Another prominent trend in the activated carbon fiber (ACF) market is the surging demand for phenolic resin based ACF products. The segment is estimated to produce a revenue of more than USD 280 million through 2027. These products are extensively utilized due to easy availability, ease of processing, lower costs, and low toxicity. When compared to pitch and other precursor products, phenolic resins have high thermal stability, good thermal insulation, and corrosion resistance. Resole and Novolak are among two prominent phenolic resins that are deployed in the production of ACF.

Speaking of the prospects of regional expansion, the activated carbon fiber (ACF) industry across Europe is expected to grow at a remarkable CAGR of nearly 6.2% between 2021 and 2027. The region is characterized by strict regulatory norms on air and chemical pollution and the presence of numerous passenger car manufacturing units. These factors are expected to impel the requirement for activated carbon fiber cloth and other products in the near future.

In a nutshell, rapidly increasing industrialization and the rising demand for water treatment owing to decreasing water level on the earth will positively influence activated carbon fiber (ACF) market growth through the estimated span.
