Bamboo charcoal powder consists of pieces of bamboo plants, which are harvested after a minimum of five years. It is manufactured using the pyrolysis or carbonization process, which usually consists of heat treatment at the temperature of 800°C to 1200°C. The process imparts high adsorption properties to the bamboo charcoal powder, thus making it useful for a wide range of applications. Bamboo charcoal powder can attract and hold a variety of materials, minerals, chemicals, humidity, radio waves, odors, and other substances. Thus, it provides these materials with healing and detoxification characteristics. The use of bamboo charcoal powder is also popular because it is an environmentally-friendly product.
Depending upon the type of raw material, the global bamboo charcoal powder market can be classified into raw bamboo charcoal and bamboo briquette charcoal. The former is made from parts of bamboo plants. These can include branches, roots, and culms. On the other hand, bamboo briquette charcoal is manufactured using bamboo residues such as saw powder and bamboo dust. Demand for raw bamboo charcoal is higher than that for bamboo briquette charcoal. This trend is expected to continue during the forecast period.
The global bamboo charcoal powder market can be also be segmented depending upon the method of manufacturing. This includes the brick kiln process and mechanical process. The former consists of the heating treatment at high temperatures, while the latter consists of powder obtained through grinding once the bamboo is heated. A majority of bamboo charcoal powder is produced using the brick kiln process. This trend is anticipated to continue during the forecast period.
Based on application, the global bamboo charcoal powder market can be divided into food, medical, cosmetics, and others. The others segment includes chemical, laboratories, and agriculture. Depending upon requirement, different grades of bamboo charcoal powder are used in industries. In terms of usage, food, medical, and cosmetics industries account for large share of the bamboo charcoal powder market. This trend is estimated to continue during the forecast period. However, demand for bamboo charcoal powder is increasing at a rapid pace in the industrial sector. Demand for bamboo charcoal powder in the industrial sector is likely to rise at a faster pace than that in the overall market.
In terms of region, the global bamboo charcoal powder market can be segregated into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. A high number of bamboo charcoal powder producers operate in Asia Pacific, especially in China. Bamboo charcoal powder is also a traditionally used product in developing countries of Asia Pacific. Thus, the region accounts for large share of the global bamboo charcoal powder market. On the other hand, the bamboo powder market in developed countries of North America and Europe is hampered by the implementation of several rules and regulations surrounding its usage.
Several important and large manufacturers operate in the global bamboo charcoal powder market. These include Hangzhou Fuyang Motor Carbon, Guilin Hsinchu Nature Biomaterials, Jiangshan City Green, Japan Daisentakezumi, Quzhou Modern Carbon Industry, Shanghai Hainuo Carbon Industry, and the Suichang Bamboo Charcoal Factory.
