The global market for catalytic converters in the automotive industry is estimated to grow at a promising rate of 7.7% from 2014 to 2019. Asia-Oceania automotive industry is estimated to be the largest market for the catalytic converter. China, Japan, and South Korea are the main contributors to the growth of catalytic converter market in the Asia-Oceania region. To cater this growing demand from the Asia-Oceania, many OEMs are expanding into this region by setting up their facilities. Europe is estimated to be the second largest market for catalytic converter, with respect to production of vehicles as well as owing to the stringent emission regulations.

Catalytic converter is an after-treatment device whose main function is to convert exhaust emissions such as carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons (HC), and nitrogen oxides (NOx) into less harmful emissions such as carbon dioxide (CO2), water (H2O), and nitrogen (N2).The catalytic converter consists of platinum, palladium, or rhodium that is used as a catalyst which is coated onto a ceramic honeycomb or on ceramic beads that are contained in a muffler-like package, which is attached to the exhaust pipe. The most widely used catalyst is platinum. But, owing to its high cost, now-a-days, palladium and rhodium are used as catalysts. This is because the cost of palladium is 40%-50% less than that of rhodium. The market for palladium is growing at a faster rate and had the market share of about 41%, by value, in 2014. The TWC and DOC have the largest market among the automotive catalytic converters types.

Increasing stringent emission norms such as Euro-V and Euro-VI have made catalytic converters mandatory for automobile industry to curtail the problem of harmful exhaust emissions. Also, it has led manufacturers and associations to come out with new, innovative products such as the four-way catalytic converter. It is still in its testing phase and is projected to be launched in the near future. The catalytic converter market for automotive industry in the Asia- Oceania and RoW regions is growing at a highest rate; whereas the European and North American markets are matured and thus, the demand for the same is estimated to grow at a comparatively steady rate.

This report classifies and defines the catalytic converter market size for automotive industry in terms of volume and value. It provides a comprehensive analysis and insights on the catalytic converter (both - qualitative and quantitative). It highlights potential growth opportunities in the coming years as well as it reviews the market drivers, restraints, growth indicators, challenges, market dynamics, competitive landscape, and other key aspects with respect to automotive catalytic converter.

The key drivers for the catalytic converter are the growing stringency of vehicle emission norms and the growing vehicle production and sales across the globe. The growing demand for electric vehicles is the major restraint to the growth of catalytic converters across the globe. The major opportunity for this market is the growing vehicle sales in emerging nations. The challenge faced by this market is the fluctuating prices of the precious group metals.

The key players in this market such as Eberspaecher (Germany), Faurecia SA (France) and Tenneco Inc. (U.S.) have also been identified and profiled.

The catalytic converter market for automotive industry is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.7% from 2014 to 2019 and reach 143.3 Million units by 2019.

Catalytic converter has become an integral part of vehicle exhaust system, considering the upcoming emission regulations in developing countries, and stringent emission standards such as Euro-V and Euro-VI in European and North American countries. The catalytic converter plays an important role in converting harmful exhaust gases from the tail pipe into less harmful emissions. Owing to de-regularized and fluctuating prices for gasoline in developing countries, there is increase in trend for diesel passenger cars around the globe. This increase in diesel vehicles would further push the demand for catalytic converters.
