Market Analysis

The Global Industrial Catalysts Market is classified on account of Type, Application and Region. On account of Type, the market is bifurcated into homogeneous and heterogeneous. On account of Substance, the industrial catalysts market is categorized into metallic, chemical, zeolite, organometallic, and others. Based on the Application, the market is segmented into petroleum refining, chemical manufacturing, environmental, food processing and others. Based on the Region, the market is categorized into Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, North America, and the Middle East & Africa.

The global catalyst market size is expected to reach USD 34.06 billion by 2025, ascending at a CAGR of 4.5%. Rising demand for petrochemicals from various end-use industries is expected to be a prime factor driving the market growth. Inclusion of high-grade polymers in manufacturing commodities for domestic as well as export oriented industry is anticipated to surge the product demand in future.

Demand for clean and green fuels has shifted the trend of energy generation from conventional to clean resources. Cobalt, iron, and nickel catalysts are the key components used for clean energy generation processes, such as the Fischer Tropsch synthesis. Rapidly expanding polymer and chemical manufacturing sectors is also anticipated to play an important role in the growth of the catalysts market. In addition, supportive regulations related to the production and usage of catalysts are expected to enhance market growth over the next eight years.

Emission regulations are the biggest drivers for a wide range of application sectors and the usage of catalysts for environmental and chemical applications are anticipated to have the highest market growth. Heterogeneous product segment led the market on wide product usage in the polymer industry. It is also used in the form of vanadium oxide for the production of sulfuric acid, which is growing on account of increasing demand of this acid in oil refining, wastewater processing, and chemical synthesis. This is also expected to fuel the demand for heterogeneous catalyst in the near future.

Technology advances in chemicals enables creation of new applications, penetration to new markets, and the achievement of new production economies. Companies are adopting digital technologies in manufacturing processes such as machine learning, internet of things (IoT), augmented reality, virtual reality and others which are helping them to reach a new level of productivity. Chemical companies are also using technologies to transform themselves from pure product to product & service companies.
