The global market for sorbents has been growing at a significant rate in pace with the personal care, medical and pharmaceutical, chemical and oil refineries, agricultural, food and electronics industries over the past five years, primarily driven by the Asia-Pacific region. In addition, research and development in sorbent technologies have resulted in cross-linking, synthesizing, water swelling and chromatography in polymers, making the polymers more porous, reducing the overall operating cost of the equipment.

To assess the market, sorbents are broadly divided into two types based on the mechanism: absorbent polymers and adsorbents. Adsorption represents a surface mechanism where the liquid is soaked and it takes place on the surface, whereas absorption involves the bulk of the material where the sorbent soaks all the liquid in it. The high usability of super absorbent polymers (SAPs) in personal hygiene products and in minimizing environmental wastes and regulating the levels of chemicals in the air and water in applications such as wastewater treatment, air purification, construction, life sciences and other applications are driving the absorbent polymers market. Sensor, instrumental and water purification are the major applications driving the adsorbents market.

Nippon Shokubai, Evonik Industries, BASF, San-Dia Polymers, Sumitomo Seika Chemicals and Kolon are the major global manufacturers of polymer absorbents. Axens, Calgon Carbon Corp., Cabot Corp., Adsorbents & Desiccants Corp. of America (ADCOA) and UOP LLC, are some of the other key participants in the market for adsorbents. Growth in the global demand for SAPs is highest in China.

This report also highlights the supplier landscape with a focus on major companies, including their profiles.
