The price of activated carbon in the United States for Q4 2023 reached 1980 USD/MT in December. The North American activated carbon market had a stable start, but mid-Q3 saw prices drop due to sufficient downstream inventories; a recovery in demand towards mid-Q4 led to rising prices again.

The price trend for activated carbon in China reached 1612 USD/MT in December 2023. The activated carbon market in APAC saw prices improve in Q3 due to depleting inventories and rising feedstock coal prices, but prices eventually declined in Q4 as crude oil prices fell and inventories overflowed.

In Germany, activated carbon prices reached 2388 USD/MT in Q4 2023. The European activated carbon market experienced fluctuating prices throughout H2'23, with weak demand forcing price discounts despite rising upstream costs; temporary price recovery in early Q4 was not sustained.

Europe Activated Carbon Price

In Europe, the activated carbon market faced significant challenges, with prices fluctuating within a narrow range during H2’23 due to weak downstream demand. Suppliers had to discount prices to promote stock movement, but consumption remained underwhelming. Although there was a temporary price increase in early Q4, it could not be sustained as prices dwindled towards the year-end. Overall, rising upstream costs could not offset the persistent lack of demand, keeping the market under pressure.
