The positive outlook of printing industry is expected to bolster the adsorption equipment market through 2025. Carbon adsorption is primarily used for reducing the organic emissions in printing operations. The increasing packaging applications for food & beverages, consumer goods, etc. will propel the printing industry thereby generating the need for adsorption equipments. Moreover, increasing applications in water & wastewater treatment sector will spur the industry growth. Various organic pollutants present in wastewater such as pesticides, oils, detergents, greases, fertilizers, phenols, etc. are effectively minimized with the help of adsorption equipments and their hazardous effect on surrounding environment can be controlled.

Stringent government regulations associated with emission of VOC and other pollutants will trigger the market value between 2019 to 2025. These regulations assess & measure the impact of harmful pollutants and specify suitable measures and guidelines to control their adverse impact. Adsorption equipment, being one of the effective measures to control air pollutants will witness promising trends in future owing to regulatory compliances.

Adsorption Equipment Market Analysis

Fixed bed type equipment captured the majority of the share in 2018 and is projected to observe more than 2% CAGR till 2025 owing to their ability to control VOC containing streams over wide range of flow rates. Various rechargeable and canisters type adsorbers are also used for both gas and liquid streams in industrial, commercial and municipal setups. These types of adsorption equipment will show a decent growth rate of around 2.5% from 2019 to 2025 due to wide applicability, low cost and easy installation process.

Vapor phase adsorption equipments are used to remove VOC and HAP from various gas streams or during industrial operations and processes. Liquid phase adsorption equipment is used to remove contaminants from liquid streams. The major application of these adsorption equipment are in water & wastewater treatment industry.

Vapor phase equipment hold highest market share owing to wide applications in various end user industries. Also, various type of adsorbents such as zeolites and polymers can be used in them, when the most commonly used activated carbon are not effective. Activated carbon in adsorption equipment is less preferable when there are VOCs with high polarity, volatility and moisture. This segment was worth USD 250 million in 2018 and is likely to showcase significant growth rate through 2025.

The adsorption equipment market from printing end-use segment held above 15% market share in 2018. These equipments are used to control VOC emission during flexographic and intaglio printing. The main emission sections in printing industry are during use of ink, fountain solutions, diluents and baking process.

Automotive application is anticipated to show significant CAGR of over 2% through 2025. It is one of the major sectors where the VOCs are emitted during painting process. Emission components such as acetic acid, butyl ester and ethyl acetate have higher concentrations during intermediate, top coating and baking process in automobile paint shops. Such higher concentrations could be hazardous for the human health thus, the adsorption equipment is primarily used in automobile industry.

Europe adsorption equipment market accounted for 30% share in 2018 owing to extensive presence of end user industries along with stringent VOC and emission norms. Countries such as Germany, Italy and France have some of the leading automobile manufacturers and these countries are committed for maintaining indoor air quality and controlling the VOCs emissions. Increasing water scarcity problem across the globe has given boost to the water and wastewater treatment industry.

Asia Pacific shows a substantial growth rate of around 3% through 2025 propelled by the fact that increasing efforts of governments in the region towards improving occupational health & safety and indoor air quality related issues. It is expected that the regulations with more strictness will be implemented along with immense presence of various end user industries will bolster the market revenue.
