Refinery Isomerization Unit Market: Introduction
- Isomerization is an advanced recycling process, wherein the isomerization unit converts light naphtha into a higher-value gasoline. End products of this process are sulfur, aromatics, benzene precursors, and olefins.
- Light naphtha that contains C5s and C6s is mixed with a small amount of hydrogen at 93°c to 204°c. It is passed into a reactor vessel containing platinum catalyst. This process rearranges the straight chains to branched isomers.
- Various companies are investing in upgrade of refinery, petrochemical plants, and gas processing plants by installing isomerization units due to the rise in demand for clean burning fuel. This is providing opportunities for the market.
Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Refinery Isomerization Unit Market
- Rapid globalization and industrialization is key driver of the global refinery isomerization unit market. Of late, demand for oil and gas has been rising significantly across the globe. This has resulted in upgrade of the existing infrastructure of refineries. This rise in demand for fuel is one of the major drivers of the global refinery isomerization unit market.
- Stringent government rules and regulations about the emission of sulfur content is another factor driving the refinery isomerization unit market. Refinery isomerization units recycle low naphtha and convert it into high value fuel, which is free of sulfur, aromatics, and benzene-like pollutants. Thus, there has been a rise in investment for clean fuel. This is expected to drive the refinery isomerization unit market in the near future.
- Rise in awareness about renewable energy is a key restraint of the global refinery isomerization unit market in oil & gas industry. Global awareness about renewable energy has increased substantially over the last few years. This is expected to be one of the key restraining factors of the refinery isomerization unit market during the forecast period.
