Molecular sieves to be the largest segment of adsorbents market by 2020. Molecular sieves are the largest segment of adsorbents that have very small pores of precise and uniform size. These are used in petrochemicals and air separation and drying applications. North America is the largest market for molecular sieves due to the huge demand from oil & gas industry. Moreover, rise in air separation & drying application is also driving the demand for adsorbents in the region. Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing market for the use of molecular sieves mainly because of surge in the petroleum refining application especially in China the largest market for oil refining industry and the trend is expected to continue till 2020.

Petroleum refining industry to play the key role in the global adsorbents market

Petroleum refining industry is the largest application of adsorbents globally. Petroleum refining adsorbents are widely used in dehydration of alkylation feed and in purification of feedstock to protect isomerization catalysts in refining. North America is the largest market for petroleum refining application of adsorbents. This high demand is due to the fact that crude oil in the region contains high amount of sulfur and other impurities, thus driving the adsorbents market in the region.

North America to be the dominant market for adsorbents

North America is the global forerunner of adsorbents market, in terms of value and volume, and this trend is expected to continue till 2020.
