Description



This report by Transparency Market Research analyzes the catalysts market for petroleum refineries, chemical synthesis, polymer and environmental applications on a global scale and aims to present a comprehensive collection of data and analyses of various market parameters. The report strives to elaborate on the demand and supply characteristics of catalysts by providing historical data from 2009 and a forecast of market numbers until 2018 along with analysis of revenues and volumes.

The catalyst market by materials is dominated by chemical compounds, zeolites and metals. The chemical compound catalyst market is further segmented into polyolefins, adsorbents, chemical synthesis catalysts and others. 

The catalysts market by application is divided among the four major segments of environmental, chemical synthesis, petroleum refining and polymers. Of these the environmental segment is expected to be the leading market in the world and holds sway over chemical synthesis and the other two segments. The report outlines the market segmentation and provides a thorough analysis of revenues and volumes.

The catalyst market can be classified into heterogeneous and homogeneous coatings based on their type. Heterogeneous catalysts are increasing in importance with uses in automotive, chemical, polymer, refinery and stationary industry and are found to be the major market segment globally in the catalysts market. Homogeneous catalysts are also growing in popularity owing to their unique features such as selectivity, high activity and varied application.

Ever rising prices of raw materials is forcing refiners to go in for catalyst regeneration, which costs 30% to 50% less than fresh catalysts. Moreover, catalyst regeneration helps refiners to deal with the problem of land filling. The catalyst regeneration industry is dominated by petroleum refineries. Off-site and on-site are the two major technologies employed in catalyst regeneration with off-site technology dominating the market in 2011.

The major geographical segments analyzed in this report are North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World (RoW). The strong economic growth in the region and growing healthcare awareness play a vital role in the emergence of Asia-Pacific as a large market for catalysts. North America and Europe are the other major markets following Asia-Pacific, in catalyst sales.

The report also aims to provide a detailed analysis of market revenue shares of companies such as Air Products and Chemicals Incorporated, Albemarle Corporation, Arkema Group, BASF SE, Chevron, Clariant International Ltd., Eka Chemicals AB, Exxon Mobil Corporation, Evonik Industries AG, E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Company (DuPont), INEOS Group Limited, Johnson Matthey PLC, UOP LLC., W. R. Grace & Co. – Conn and Zeolyst International Inc.

The report also includes a detailed value chain of the catalysts market along with Porter’s Five Forces analysis to identify the pros and cons of/for all the upstream and downstream segments thus enabling a strategy-making process for buyers of catalyst ingredients, suppliers of raw materials, substitutes, and potential new entrants into the market based on possibility of forward or backward integration into the various business segments. The report also presents a comprehensive assessment of the stakeholder strategies, winning imperatives for them by segmenting the catalyst market as below:

Free Market Analysis


Catalysis is the change in rate of any chemical reaction owing to inclusion of one or more external substances that are termed as catalysts. Chemical reactions usually involve consumption of the constituents to form new molecular structures. Catalysts are unique participants in a chemical reaction as they themselves do not participate in the chemical reaction and are not consumed by it. Catalysis includes different types of functions based on necessity of the reaction process. Catalysts that contribute to enhance reaction speed are termed as positive catalysts and those that slow down a reaction are called inhibitors. 

Catalysts are broadly classified as heterogeneous and homogeneous. Solid catalysts are mostly heterogeneous catalysts. Heterogeneous catalysts are the more predominantly used type of catalysts. Catalysts are mainly used in petroleum refinery, chemical synthesis, polymerization and environmental applications. Catalyst demand in 2012 was worth USD 19.2 billion and is forecast to reach USD 24.1 billion by the end of 2018, growing at a CAGR of 3.9% between 2012 and 2018. Environmental application is the fastest growing segment of the catalysts market in terms of revenue and is poised to play an important role in revenue generation in the years to come. Focus on launch of innovative products through increased research and development in the field of environmental catalysts is viewed as the most lucrative area in this market. 

Catalysts can also be classified on the basis of materials. This includes zeolites, metals, chemical compounds and others. Zeolites are mainly employed in petroleum refineries, while metals are predominantly used in the field of emission reduction applications. However, chemical compounds dominate the demand for catalysts in terms of both volume as well as revenue. The demand for catalysts is mainly driven by increasingly stringent emission reduction regulations across the world. Moreover, growth trend in end user industries like petroleum refineries, chemical synthesis and polymer manufacturing are driving demand for catalysts across the world. BASF SE, W R Grace, Johnson Matthey, Albemarle Corporation, Haldor Topsoe, and Honeywell (UOP LLC) are some of the major manufacturers of catalysts.
