The global emission control catalyst market is projected to reach USD 16.09 billion by 2021, registering a CAGR of 10.37% from 2016 to 2021. Emission control catalysts are used to breakdown the harmful pollutants in the exhaust system of an automotive or any industrial machinery to release less harmful pollutants into the environment. The strict emission regulations standards set by the EU, adoption of EU equivalent emission standards by China and other Asia-Pacific countries, and increase in the demand for diesel oxidation catalysts is driving the emission control catalyst market. The emission control catalysts are a major segment in the catalyst market which is extremely vital for the automobile industry.

“Platinum based ECC: The fastest-growing product segment of the ECC market”
Platinum is the most active catalyst and a widely used precious metal in catalytic converters in gasoline engines. It is used as both a reduction and an oxidation catalyst. The stringent regulations governing automobile exhaust emissions are driving the market demand for platinum-based emission control catalysts. Platinum has always been favored for use in diesel engines after treatment because the exhaust stream of a diesel engine is a highly oxidizing environment and under these conditions, palladium is easily converted to a less catalytically active palladium oxide whereas platinum remains in its metallic form

“Europe: The fastest-growing market for ECC”
Europe is estimated to be the fastest-growing market for ECC. Market growth in the region can be attributed to the expansion of production capacity and high demand for end-use products, among other factors (EU emission standards, gradual switch to diesel cars). The high demand for ECC in the Europe has prompted expansion activities by key players in this region, making it the fastest-growing regional market for ECCs.
