Activated Carbon-based Nonwoven Fabric Market: Key Trends and Drivers

Increasing Demand For Air And Water Purification

Activated carbon-based nonwoven fabrics are widely used for air and water purification due to their ability to remove pollutants and impurities. With the growing concern for environmental pollution, the demand for these fabrics is increasing. The increasing demand for air and water purification has been a major driver of the activated carbon-based nonwoven fabric market. Activated carbon-based nonwoven fabrics are used in a variety of air and water purification applications due to their excellent adsorption and filtration properties.

In the air purification industry, activated carbon-based nonwoven fabric is used in filters for HVAC systems, automotive cabin filters, and air purifiers. It can remove volatile organic compounds (VOCs), smoke, and odors from the air. The increasing concern for indoor air quality and the rising levels of pollution have led to a higher demand for activated carbon-based nonwoven fabric in the air purification industry.

Similarly, in the water purification industry, activated carbon-based nonwoven fabrics are used in water filters, water treatment plants, and other applications to remove impurities and contaminants from water. With the increasing awareness of water scarcity and the need for clean water, the demand for activated carbon-based nonwoven fabrics in water purification is expected to grow.

Activated Carbon-based Nonwoven Fabric Market: Restraints & Challenges

High production costs

The production process of activated carbon-based nonwoven fabric is complex, and the equipment required is expensive. The high production costs can make the final product expensive, which can limit the market demand. One of the major restraining factors is the cost of activated carbon, which is used as the primary material in nonwoven fabric. Activated carbon is derived from carbonaceous materials like coal, coconut shells, or wood and the cost can vary depending on the source and quality of the material. Another cost factor is the energy required for the production process, which involves heating and activation of the carbon material. The cost of energy can vary depending on the source and availability of electricity or other energy sources. The labor cost is also a factor, as the production process requires skilled operators to handle the equipment and ensure the quality of the final product. In addition, the equipment used in the production process can be expensive to purchase and maintain, which adds to the overall production costs. To reduce production costs, manufacturers may look for ways to optimize the production process, such as improving energy efficiency, streamlining operations, and exploring alternative raw materials. Additionally, they may also explore ways to increase the yield of the production process, such as by reducing waste or optimizing the use of resources.
