The catalytic converter market is driven by factors such as stringent emission and fuel efficiency regulations around the globe as well as rising vehicle production, sales, and parc. The catalytic converter market was estimated to be USD 37.45 Billion in 2016, and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.05% during the forecast period. The base year considered for the study is 2015, and the forecast period is 2016 to 2021.

Objectives of the Study:

  • To analyze and forecast (2014–2021) the market size, in terms of volume (‘000 units) and value (USD million), of the automotive catalytic converter market
  • To define, describe, and project the automotive catalytic converter market by catalytic converter type (Three-way catalysts, Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC), and Lean NOx Trap (LNT))
  • To define, describe, and project the automotive catalytic converter market by material type (platinum, palladium, rhodium, and others)
  • To define, describe, and project the automotive catalytic converter aftermarket by region (Asia-Oceania, North America, Europe, and Rest of the World) and vehicle type (passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, and heavy commercial vehicles)
  • To understand the market dynamics, and the impact of market dynamics on the catalytic converter market, market ranking analysis of key catalytic converter manufacturers, and profiles of the top 10 catalytic converter manufacturers

The report follows the bottom-up approach to estimate country-level use of catalytic converters, by catalytic converter type and vehicle type. The forecast of this data is based on various secondary sources and validation of the same from primary respondents. Secondary sources include associations such as the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT), United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), paid databases, and directories such as Factiva.  In the primary research stage, experts from related industries, manufacturers, and suppliers have been interviewed to understand the present situation and future trends in the catalytic converter market. The catalytic converter market, in terms of volume (thousand units) and value (USD billion), has been derived from forecasting techniques based on the production and sales data for all the regions. The penetrations have been verified using different primary sources. The figure below illustrates the break-up of the profile of industry experts who participated in primary discussions.

The catalytic converter market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.05% from 2016 to 2021, to reach a market size of USD 55.16 Billion by 2021. Stringent fuel efficiency norms, increasing vehicle demand, and production are the major drivers for the catalytic converter market.

Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) is the fastest growing segment globally, in terms of value and volume. The demand for SCR is increasing owing to stringent emission regulations. Though SCR cannot be used in gasoline vehicles, OEMs are opting for SCR for diesel vehicles, particularly for heavy duty vehicles as there is less space constraint to fit SCR. Three-way catalyst (TWC) is the largest market among the different types of catalytic converters. It is widely used in gasoline vehicles. TWC is the largest market owing to increasing demand for gasoline vehicles, especially in passenger cars.

Heavy Commercial Vehicle (HCV) is the fastest growing vehicle type in the catalytic converter market. HCV segment is a major source of vehicular emissions. It requires diesel oxidation catalyst for removing carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrocarbons (HC). Additionally, diesel vehicles require either SCR or LNT for removal of NOx. The adoption of diesel emission technology is growing in the wake of stringent emission regulations.

Palladium is the fastest growing segment in the catalytic converter market, by material type. It is used as an oxidation catalyst and is also one of the cheapest precious metals. It is widely used in gasoline catalytic converter technology. The demand for palladium is driven by the growth of the catalytic converter market.

The Asia-Oceania region is estimated to dominate the catalytic converter market, and is projected to grow at the highest CAGR, in terms of value, during the forecast period. Asia-Oceania has emerged as a hub for automotive production owing to changing consumer preferences, increasing disposable income of the middle-class population, and cost advantages for OEMs. Manufacturers such as BMW AG (Germany) and Volkswagen Group (Germany) have already set up manufacturing units in this region. Factors such as low production costs, availability of economical labor, lenient emission and safety norms, and government initiatives for FDIs have led to the region witnessing higher growth than the matured markets of Europe and North America.  Additionally, Asia-Oceania is a hub of major catalytic converter manufacturers such as Faurecia SA (France), Tenneco, Inc. (U.S.), Eberspacher Group (Germany) and other Tier-1 suppliers. Thus, the market for catalytic converters is the largest in the Asia-Oceania region.

Automotive Catalytic Converter Market

A key factor restraining the growth of catalytic converter market is the growing demand for electric vehicles. Increasing sales of electric vehicles could influence the demand for catalytic converters in the long term. This will decrease the number of catalytic converter enabled vehicles on the road and would impact the catalytic converter market. The catalytic converter market is dominated by a few global players and comprises several regional players.  Some of the key manufacturers operating in the market are Faurecia SA (France), Tenneco, Inc. (U.S.), Eberspacher Group (Germany), Benteler International AG (Germany), and Magneti Marelli S.p.A. (Italy).
