Charcoal Market Projected to Reach $6,492.8 Million by 2023

Press Release

The rising demand for charcoal as a purification agent in water treatment plants and a metallurgical fuel in the mining and metal industry helped the charcoal market grow to $5,813.2 million in 2017. It is expected to advance at a CAGR of 2.0% during the forecast period (2018–2023).  Charcoal is the black residue of carbon that is formed by the removal of water and other volatile components from biological materials such as wood. The slow heating of organic materials in the absence of oxygen produces charcoal.

A major trend being observed in the charcoal market is the growing demand for the product for barbecue cuisine. To keep up with customers’ demand for innovative and unique dining experiences, the food industry is enthusiastically experimenting with barbecued food items. Developed nations, such as Germany and the U.S., have barbecued food as a tradition. This trend is now spreading to emerging economies, such as India and China. The smokiness and caramelized texture that charcoal adds to the food items is making the cooking technique popular among people, who are now increasingly opting for barbecued foods.
