The global molecular sieves market grew at a CAGR of around 6% during 2014-2019.

Molecular sieves are various materials with small pores of uniform structure and size. They are produced in powdered/beaded/pelleted form by the dehydration of synthetic or naturally occurring materials like zeolite, silica, clay, etc. They adsorb gas or liquid molecules, which are smaller than the effective diameter of the pores while excluding molecules that are larger than the openings. Known for their drying capabilities, crushing strength, contamination resistant property, and a high number of utilization cycles that offer a prolonged product life, molecular sieves find widespread application across numerous industries, including detergent, water treatment and oil and gas.

Molecular sieves are primarily utilized across industries for the separation of permanent gases (hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, carbon monoxide, and inert gases) and low molecular weight linear and branched-chain hydrocarbons. This represents one of the key factors driving the market growth. These sieves also find extensive application as a catalyst in the petroleum and petrochemical industries. Apart from this, increasing environmental consciousness, coupled with the implementation of stringent governmental regulations favoring the use of molecular sieves as they are environment-friendly, is also contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, the projected applications of biocompatible molecular sieves in the healthcare sector, including use for controlled drug release in the human body, are expected to act as another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, the rising water treatment activities for the purification of water and gas streams, along with the removal of nuclear waste with the use of molecular sieves, are anticipated to further increase the product demand across the globe. Looking forward, the analyst expects the market to continue its moderate growth during the next five years.
