Global Charcoal Market

Rising sustainable charcoal production is expected to drive the Global Charcoal Market growth in the forecast period, 2024-2028.

According to TechSci Research report, “Charcoal Market – Global Industry Size, Share, Trends, Competition Forecast & Opportunities, 2028”, the Global Charcoal Market stood at USD 6.82 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow with a CAGR of 3.82% in the forecast period, 2024-2028. The global charcoal market has witnessed steady growth in recent years, driven by a combination of factors that highlight its versatility and wide-ranging applications. Charcoal, derived from the carbonization of organic materials like wood, coconut shells, and agricultural residues, has evolved beyond its traditional use as a cooking fuel. One of the primary drivers of the global charcoal market is the ever-increasing demand for cooking and grilling fuel, particularly in regions where access to modern energy sources is limited. Charcoal’s affordability and accessibility make it a staple cooking fuel for millions of households, especially in developing countries. The aroma and flavor it imparts to grilled food further contribute to its popularity.

Moreover, the global barbecue culture has been on the rise, particularly in developed countries. Charcoal remains the fuel of choice for barbecues and outdoor grilling enthusiasts. The convenience and unique taste associated with charcoal-grilled dishes have fueled the demand for charcoal products in these markets. Beyond household consumption, charcoal plays a crucial role in various industries. The production of activated carbon, a highly porous and adsorbent material, relies on charcoal as a key raw material. Activated carbon is widely used in water purification, air filtration, gas masks, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics. The increasing emphasis on environmental protection and water treatment is driving the demand for activated carbon, thus indirectly boosting the charcoal market.

Sustainability has become a critical concern in the global charcoal market. Traditional charcoal production methods often contribute to deforestation and ecosystem degradation. In response, there is a growing shift toward sustainable practices in the industry. Certification programs such as the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification are gaining prominence, encouraging responsible charcoal sourcing from well-managed forests. Consumers are increasingly seeking eco-friendly products, including charcoal. This has led to the development of charcoal briquettes made from biomass materials like coconut shells, sawdust, and agricultural waste. These alternatives offer a cleaner and more sustainable option, reducing the environmental footprint associated with traditional charcoal production.
