Catalysts are substances used for accelerating a chemical reaction without undergoing any change themselves. They are used in various industries such as chemical, pharmaceutical, oil-refining, petrochemical, organic synthesis, etc. These industries use the catalysts extensively to enhance various chemical processes, thereby, reducing both the energy usage and cost. Industrial catalysts also help in removing sulfur and nitrogen from petroleum products. Due to a pressure to make industrial processes cleaner and greener, new catalysts are being developed. According to the latest report by IMARC Group, “Industrial Catalyst Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023”, the global industrial catalyst market reached a value of US$ 18 Billion in 2017.
Rising demand for chemical products, fuels and petroleum refining capacities are some of the major factors which are increasing the usage of industrial catalysts. A demand for eco-friendly fuels further propels the growth of the market as industrial catalysts help in meeting the fuel standards, increases operational efficiency and promotes clean fuel trends. Growing consumption of fuels and other chemical products has resulted in the rapid growth of the petroleum industry, thereby boosting the demand for industrial catalysts. Technological developments, rising urbanization and growing automation are the other factors driving the market growth. Further, the market is expected to reach a value of US$ 23 Billion by 2023, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.5% during 2018-2023.
