Market Research Analysis

FCC catalyst segment by type in global refinery catalyst is expected to grow at the fastest rate
FCC catalyst segment holds one of the biggest share in the refinery catalyst market. FCC catalysts plays a pivotal role in the alteration of heavy atmospheric residue and vacuum distillates into fractions of motor fuels, mainly gasoline. It is widely used to convert the high-boiling, high molecular weight hydrocarbon fractions of petroleum crude oils into more valuable gasoline, olefinic gases and other products. The growing demand for FCC catalysts from the refining industry in emerging economies, such as China and India, also stringent environmental regulations are the key factor for driving the FCC catalyst in global refinery catalyst market.

Metals segment by ingredient in global refinery catalyst is expected to grow at the fastest rate
Based on ingredients, metals segment contributed for the largest market share of the refinery catalyst market. This growth can be credited to the growing use of metals for hydrocracking and hydrotreating to eradicate undesirable impurities and production of dangerous gases into the environment. Strict ecological regulations framed to reduce air pollution by diminishing the sulfur content in the gasoline and ultra-low sulfur content in diesel are further projected to drive the demand for metals in the refinery catalyst market.

Regional Analysis

The Asia Pacific leads the market with the highest growth due to the presence of various emerging economies in the region with rapidly rising demand for fuel. Countries such as India and China among others have massive consumer populations and a swiftly expanding automotive industry among others. The demand for energy and fuel in the region to power homes, vehicles and the industrial hub that the region has become has catapulted the region into leading position. Growing construction of refinery infrastructure is another key factor driving the regional market.

The North American market closely follows the Asia Pacific. The U.S leads the region’s growth and has a significant demand for fuel and crude oil by-products. The presence of several key players in the region add to the regions growth drivers and cement its position as a leading regional market.
