The growing need to have a check over mercury emissions in order to keep pollution under control, stringent regulations for water purification before the supply is made to the citizens, and consistent research and new product developments are some of the key factors driving the activated carbon market. On the other hand, weak economic conditions in a number of underdeveloped countries and scarcity of raw materials and thereby price hikes are a few restraints obstructing the market from attaining greater profitability. However, reactivated carbon is expected to formulate a strong trend in this market.
