Refinery (FCC, Hydrocracking, Catalytic Reforming), Synthesis, Polymer &
Environmental Catalyst Market - Global Industry
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
