Trusted Business Insights has published a comprehensive market research report on, Activated Carbon Fiber Market by Type (Pitch based ACF, Polyacrylonitrile (PAN) based ACF, Viscose Staple based ACF and Other Material based ACF), By Application(Solvent recovery, Air purification, Water treatment, Catalyst Carrier and Other Applications), and by Region -Global Forecast to 2030, which offers a holistic view of the Global Activated Carbon Fiber Market through systematic segmentation that covers every aspect of the target market. The Global Activated Carbon Fiber Market was valued at US$ 402.4 Mn in 2020 and is expected to reach US$ 639.6 Mn by 2030 at a CAGR of 4.7%. Activated carbon fibers are prepared from general purpose carbon fibers by a heat treatment in order to achieve a high level of porosity. It is used in filters, face masks, for air purification. Activated carbon is derived from charcoal. It has the name because its surface area is very large as compared to its size. A chemical reaction takes place very easily as the surface area is huge. It is of porous nature and has high adsorption capacity. Activated carbon fiber also referred to as ACF, is a hybrid of activated carbon and carbon fiber. Raw materials for activated carbon fiber are cellulose, polyacrylonitrile, phenolic resin, pitch fibers and others. Activated carbon fiber has speedy adsorption or desorption, good volumetric capacity and high packing density. It is considered great absorbent as well due to the absence of macropore and very few mesopores. Activation process increases existing pores and creates new ones as well. Its cost is somewhat high but so are its applications. It is used in electrochemical applications, medical application, heavy metal removal, catalysis etc. Due to increasing cognizance amongst the general population regarding pollution and its ill effects, people are relying on air purification, treatment of wastewater, etc. for which activated carbon fibers are used. This is supposed to increase demand for activated carbon fiber. In addition to this Industrial applications of activated carbon fiber are on the rise which is expected to boost the demand for Activated Carbon Fiber market.
