Drinking water adsorbents are used to purify and remove pollutants from contaminated water to get clean water. Clean drinking water is one of the most important compounds required to sustain life on earth. The growing population and contamination of water sources are major challenges in the 21st century. Even though more than seventy percent of the earth is covered in water, only less than one percent of it is drinkable as per international safety standards. Some of the major contributors to water pollution are wastewater from industrial and agricultural activities, municipal sewage and wastewater, and environmental changes. Even trace amounts of contaminants like heavy metals, dyes, and microorganisms are dangerous to the health of humans, aquatic life, and the environment as a whole. Removing such toxic elements from water sources has proven to be a challenge. Various techniques have been developed in recent years to combat water pollution, some of them are membrane filtration, reverse osmosis, flocculation, ion exchange, advanced oxidation processes, and biological methods. These methods have shown varying degrees of results but are riddled with disadvantages like low efficiency, large amounts of sewage sludge production, high costs, and generation of toxic by-products, among other drawbacks. In recent years, the advancement in adsorption-based water pollutants removal has shown a high degree of efficiency and economical feasibility compared to other conventional methods. In adsorption, a gas or liquid solute accumulates on the surface of the adsorbent resulting in the formation of an adsorbate layer. The adsorbent can then be removed from the solution and along with it, all the impurities contained on its surface. Consumption of contaminated water can result in various health issues like cancer, brain damage, and organ failure. The water adsorbent market is driven by the growing health hazard concerns among the population. The market has recently witnessed a wide range of awareness of ill effects caused due to the intake of polluted drinking water. This trend will help increase the market demand during the forecast period. There is an increasing demand for natural and organic adsorbents like coconut shells, clay, coal, and wood, among other natural compounds. Their good efficiency, availability, and economic feasibility are some of the major factors for the growing demand for organic water adsorbents. Clay consists of exchangeable cations and anions which makes it an ideal adsorbent material. Clay has a large surface area which facilitates greater adsorption on its surface, greater ion exchange, and greater mechanical and chemical structure due to its layered structure. Polymeric adsorbents are especially useful in the removal process of inorganic pollutants and heavy metals. Governments across the world are setting up stringent regulations to prevent contamination of water bodies. This is especially applicable to industries as they are required to treat wastewater before disposal. The growing government regulations are also expected to increase the demand for drinking water adsorbents in the market. Growing health concerns and rising pollution levels have increased the demand for water filtration systems in homes across the world. The growing demand for water filtration systems is another contributor to the growing demand for drinking water adsorbents. The market is restrained by the presence of other water purification techniques. These techniques are often capable of eliminating the dissolved impurities from water.
Based on the various drinking water adsorbent products available in the market, the drinking water adsorbent market can be segmented into zeolite, clay, alumina, activated carbon, manganese oxide, cellulose, and others. The activated carbon is expected to hold the dominant share of the market during the forecast period. Activated carbon water adsorbents are capable of removing dissolved contaminants and improve the drinking water’s taste, odor, and color along with the removal of impurities. Activated carbon is profoundly appropriate for the evacuation of natural poisons because of the presence of carbon and hydrogen in its primary synthesis. The activated carbon segment has also benefited from the high demand and larger awareness of the product especially among the developed nations and in regions like North America. The zeolites segment is expected to register the fastest growth rate during the forecast period. Zeolites are cost-effective and offer separation and purification of contaminated water. The removal of heavy metals, ammonia, and dyes from drinking water is dependent on this product. Zeolites have a high ion-exchange capacity and offer molecular sieve properties that facilitate the separation and purification of drinking water. These factors are expected to increase the demand for zeolite-based drinking water adsorbents.
The North American region is expected to hold the dominant share of the market during the forecast period. High water quality standards and stringent wastewater disposal regulations are the major contributors to the large demand for drinking water adsorbents in the market. Activated carbon is the most common type most profound drinking water adsorbents used in the region. Growin awareness of water pollutions and the dangers associated with the consumption of polluted drinking water has resulted in the dominance of this region. The APAC region is expected to register the fastest growth rate among all regions during the forecast period. The rising concerns of water pollution and the growing demand for safe drinking water are expected to increase the demand for drinking water adsorbents in the market. Governments in the region are also beginning to pass stringent water pollution regulations which are expected to increase the demand for drinking water adsorbents in the region. Rising groundwater contamination owing to industrial and agricultural wastes is also expected to increase the demand for drinking water adsorbents in the region.
CycloPure Inc., BASF SE, Kuraray Co. Ltd, Dupont Evoqua Water Technologies LLC, KMI Zeolite, GEH Wasserchemie, Purolite, Lenntech B.V., and TIGG LLC, among others, are the major vendors competing in the drinking water adsorbents market.
