Industrial catalyst (SAP) Market Outlook:
Catalysts are chemicals and materials that are used to make a reaction more efficient in terms of cost and quality. The catalysts itself does not react but rather, aids the reactants in reacting with each other and helps stabilize, speed up and selectively react to form the desired product over the undesired product. There are various materials and chemicals form which catalysts are prepared. The Catalyst market is one of the most dynamic markets present, as there is always need for more efficient and cost optimization across all industries. Catalysts are majorly used in Refining of petroleum and petrochemical products, Automotive and aerospace industry for emission control, chemical synthesizing process such as polymer processing, olefin polymerization, fluid cracking, isomerization and many more.
Industrial catalyst Market Growth drivers:
The major drivers for the Industrial Catalyst market was the tightening of regulations globally in regards to Air pollution standards. The catalysts have major use in emission control and clean fuel technologies, in automotive, chemical industries, petrochemical industries and various other sectors. With the rising global population there has been an increase in industrialization which has led to extremely high pollution levels. There has also been a huge growth in the demand and production of automotive vehicles both light and heavy, all which use catalyst to control emission levels. Governments in the Asia pacific Region, US and Europe have been tightening policies towards air pollution due to which the use of catalysts for reducing undesirable emissions as a byproduct from industries and vehicles and to increase efficient usage of fuels has propelled the growth of the market for Industrial catalysts.
Another growth driver has been the use of catalysts in chemical production, petroleum refining and petrochemical process. The continuous growth in these markets and their derivatives has also continued to follow a stable growth in demand from the catalyst market.

Market Research and Market Trends of Industrial catalyst (SAP) Market
- A rising trend in the Industrial Catalyst Industry is the application of Industrial Catalyst in the production of methanol with the rising demand for methanol production. With crude oil prices rising and the demand for important derivatives of crude oils, such propylene, butylene and many more, also rising, companies have started looking at methanol as an alternative source for the production of these derivatives. The increase in the number of plants being setup for methanol production is booting he market for catalyst technologies pertaining to efficient methanol production.
- Another important announcement made by one of the leading players in the market, BASF, was that they estimate by 2020 Chia would be producing 80% of the world’s chemicals. This has pushed them to startup a new manufacturing plant for their process catalysts in China so as to cater to the domestic market with ease. This is sure to catch up considering the rampant industrialization and population growth that is seen in China in the present global scenario.
- Another trend that is seen in the Industry for Industrial Catalysts is the joint ventures and partnerships being taken by players in the market in the fields of research and innovation so as to develop newer and better products with more application so as to satisfy the ever increasing demand for cost cutting and efficiency.
