By Metal Type – Segment Analysis
The palladium-based emission control catalyst segment held the largest share in the emission control catalyst market in 2019. There is a resurgence of interest in the use of palladium in automotive emission control catalysts because of cost, availability, and performance advan-tages under certain operating con¬ditions relative to more expensive noble metals. Palladium is being widely used as an oxidation catalyst in the gasoline autocatalysts (petrol-based engines) of diesel engines because of its ability to maintain acceptable performance at sustained temperatures for a lifetime. The emission control catalysts containing equivalent ratios of platinum and palladium are being launched to improve the quality of catalytic converters to curb the rising emissions. The increasing demand for palladium-based emission control catalysts coupled with its relatively low cost is anticipated to boost the demand for palladium-based emission control catalysts during the forecast period.
By Catalytic Converter Type – Segment Analysis
The diesel oxidation catalyst segment held the largest share in the emission control catalyst market in 2019. The diesel oxidation catalysts (DOC) are most commonly used for compression-ignition such as diesel engines. This device uses oxygen in the exhaust gas stream to convert carbon monoxide to carbon dioxide and hydrocarbons to water and carbon dioxide. Also, these converters are known to perform at 90% efficiency, and they manage to remove diesel odor and reduce visible particulates. Diesel oxidation catalysts (DOC) helps to breakdown solid particulates in engine exhaust systems of the industrial machinery and vehicles to minimize the harmful pollutants into the environment due to which the demand for diesel oxidation catalysts is increasing during the forecast period.
By Application – Segment Analysis
The mobile application held the largest share in the emission control catalyst market in 2019 and is growing at a CAGR of 10.4%, as the emission control catalytic converter is a key component of most new car engines in the world today.

These cost-effective technologies are helping regions around the world meet the growing need to control air pollution from motorcycles, mopeds, scooters, lawnmowers, leaf blowers, edgers, trimmers, and chainsaws. The catalytic converter oxidizes all gases such as CO, NO, and HC to CO2, NO2, and CO2 and water. Since emission control catalysts need to have a temperature above 300°C for efficient performance, they are installed next to the engine in mobile vehicles. The increasing usage of the emission control catalyst in the mobile is anticipated to propel the emission control catalyst market during the forecast period.
By Geography – Segment Analysis
Europe region held the largest share in the emission control catalyst market in 2019 up to 30%, owing to the stringent emission regulations by the European governments in the region. The government has issued several policies relating to climate change. According to the European Council, the country are adopting regulations aimed to ensure that from 2030 onwards new cars will emit on average 37.5% less CO2 and new vans will emit 31% less CO2 compared to 2021 levels. Both cars and vans will be required to emit 15% less CO2 Between 2025 and 2029. These are EU-wide fleet targets. The European governments have adopted various vehicle emission laws to reduce pollution such as emission standards for light-duty vehicles, emission standards for heavy-duty vehicles, car labeling, fuel quality directive, and more. All these stringent emission regulations by the European government are driving the emission control catalyst market growth in the European region during the forecast period.
Drivers – Emission Control Catalyst Market
- Increasing Automotive Production
The emission control catalysts are being extensively used in automotive applications to reduce harmful emissions in the environment. In 2018, According to OICA, the automotive production in India, Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia has increased up to 5174645, 2167694, 1343714 and 564800, i.e., 8.0%, 9.0%, 10.3%, and 12.2% higher than the previous year due to rising per capita income of the individuals which further led to the massive demand for advanced automotive machines manufacturing in the APAC region. According to the International Trade Administration (ITA), the Chinese government is expecting that automobile output will reach 30 million units by 2020 and 35 million by 2025.
