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 regeneration helps refiners to deal...
