The growth of the market can be attributed to the growing demand for lighter fuels such as gasoline, diesel, and others backed by the increasing use of vehicles. The increasing manufacturing and sale of passenger cars, with more than 60 million cars sold globally in the year 2020, is estimated to positively influence the market growth. Furthermore, the increasing investment in the oil & gas industry is estimated to boost the market growth over the forecast period.


The global refinery catalyst market is segmented by material into zeolites, metals, chemical compound, and others, out of which, the zeolites segment is anticipated to hold the largest share in the market during the forecast period on the back of its application in selective catalytic reduction of diesel, as zeolites can withstand high temperatures and have large surface area for adsorption. On the basis of type, the market is segmented into hydrotreating, fluid catalytic cracking, hydrocracking, isomerization, and others, out of which, the fluid catalytic cracking segment is anticipated to hold a notable share in the market throughout the forecast period on the back of its ability to change long carbon chain into lighter hydrocarbons. CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth


The chemical industry is a major component of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2020, for the U.S., the value added by chemical products as a percentage of GDP was around 1.9%. Additionally, according to the World Bank, Chemical industry in the U.S. accounted for 16.43% to manufacturing value-added in 2018. With the growing demand from end-users, the market for chemical products is expected to grow in future. According to UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme), the sales of chemicals are projected to almost double from 2017 to 2030. In the current scenario, Asia Pacific is the largest chemical producing and consuming region. China has the world’s largest chemical industry, that accounted for annual sales of approximately more than USD 1.5 trillion, or about more than one-third of global sales, in recent years. Additionally, a vast consumer base and favorable government policies have boosted investment in China’s chemical industry. Easy availability of low-cost raw material & labor as well as government subsidies and relaxed environmental norms have served as a production base for key vendors globally. On the other hand, according to the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry), the chemical industry in India was valued at 163 billion in 2019 and it contributed 3.4% to the global chemical industry. It ranks 6th in global chemical production. This statistic shows the lucrative opportunity for the investment in businesses in Asia Pacific countries in the upcoming years.
