Hydro Anthracite Market

Hydro Anthracite Market: Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2020 - 2030

Hydro Anthracite: Introduction

  • Hydro-anthracite is a filtration material made by sorting crushed anthracite coal. This filtering material is designed to be utilized for water treatment, and is produced by grinding and sieving of natural anthracite that is previously put through heat treatment. The very tough grains of this filter material are characterized by their structure.
  • Anthracite is a significantly hard, clean and metamorphosed type of coal. Hydro-anthracite being an anthracite coal has beneficial features such as high carbon content, coal-low sulfur, and negligible impurities. Anthracite has been providing even, comfortable heating in homes, hospitals, office buildings, schools, military bases, and other institutions throughout the world. Anthracite as a fuel source, possesses various advantages over its more well-known substitutes, such as oil, cord wood, gas, electricity, and wood pellets.
  • Anthracite is extracted almost exclusively from previously disturbed sites. After retrieving the coal from the old mines, the land is filled in and reclaimed. The two major ways to mine anthracite coal are deep or underground mining and surface or open pit mining. Deep mining comprises a system of shafts, slopes, and rock tunnels connecting the veins being mined. Surface mining or open pit mining is carried out on hillsides and is visible from the exterior.
  • Hydro-anthracite conforms to the purity conditions defined in the regulations concerning mineral products used in water treatment for human consumption. Hydro-anthracite is a cost-effective, reliable system that requires minimal maintenance due to the stability of the grains. Hydro-anthracite is extensively utilized due to its economic advantage such as the longer filtration lifecycle, reduced washing water consumption, and a decreased head loss, without requiring a larger plant.

Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Hydro Anthracite Market

  • Particles of hydro-anthracite are angular and irregular in shape and size; hence, they do not compact. This shape enables contaminant particles from the water to be suspended throughout the depth of the filter bed, preventing caking and allowing for longer filter run times. Longer filter runs offer benefits such as less frequent backwashing, which increases productivity and decreases operating expenses. Increase in demand for safe and clean drinking water, owing to an increase in global population has prompted various water treatment plants to provide clean water for drinking. This is estimated to drive the global hydro anthracites market during the forecast period.
  • Surge in industrialization in developed as well as developing countries due to technological advancements is leading to contamination of wastewater. This wastewater needs to be filtered before releasing it directly into the environment. Thus, an increase in the demand from various industrial sectors is anticipated to drive the global hydro anthracites market in the near future.

Hydro Anthracite: Application Segment

  • Based on the resin type, the global hydro anthracites market has been segmented into drinking water treatment, swimming pool water treatment, waste-water treatment, industrial water treatment, municipal water treatment, and others (heating, ceramics, etc.).
  • The drinking water treatment segment is expected to hold a significant share of the global hydro anthracites market during the forecast period, owing to a significant increase in the demand for clean and safe drinking water globally

Covid-19 Impact on Hydro Anthracite Market

  • Several governments and private sector businesses are operating on a limited capacity or have ceased operations completely due to recent events surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. Various manufacturing activities of different materials and products across the globe came to a halt due to the unavailability of raw materials, shortage of labor, and other reasons. This, in turn, is expected to hamper the global hydro anthracites market to some extent.

Asia Pacific to be a Key Market for Hydro Anthracite

  • In terms of region, the global hydro anthracite market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa
  • The market in Asia Pacific is expected to dominate in the global hydro anthracite market during the forecast period. This expansion can be attributed to high demand from various water treatment plants, owing to an increase in population and industrialization in the region.
