The global emission control catalyst (ECC) market is projected to reach USD 16.09 Billion by 2021, registering a CAGR of 10.37% from 2016 to 2021. The report aims to estimate the market size and future growth potential of the ECC market across different segments namely, material, type, application, and region. The base year considered for the study is 2015, and the market size is forecast from 2016 to 2021. The high growth in the automotive and industrial sectors is driving the ECC market. 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. Emission reduction from automobiles and industrial processing units has been one of the top priorities across the world that has been boosting the emission control catalyst market.

In the secondary research process, various sources have been referred to for the identification and collection of information for this study. These secondary sources include annual reports, press releases, and investor presentations of companies, white papers and certified publications, and articles from recognized authors. In the primary research process, sources from both, the supply and demand sides have been interviewed to obtain qualitative and quantitative information. The bottom-up approach has been used to estimate the market size, in terms of value, of the ECC market on the basis of material, type, application, and region. The top-down approach has been implemented to validate the market size, in terms of value. Through the data triangulation procedure and validation of data via primaries, the exact values of the overall parent market size and individual market sizes have been determined and confirmed in the study.

Emission Control Catalyst Market

To know about the assumptions considered for the study, download the pdf brochure

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 first node of the emission control catalyst value chain is the procurement of raw materials from the suppliers. The PGM catalysts are later sold to the canners, who can be also called as catalytic converter manufacturers for automotive industries. Further, the catalytic converter manufacturers sell their products to the integrators or companies that assemble exhaust systems. The final part of the value chain is the OEMs and industrial processing units who purchase the integrated components from the integrators.

This study answers several questions for stakeholders, primarily which market segments to focus on in the next two to five years for prioritizing efforts and investments. These stakeholders include ECC manufacturers such as BASF Catalysts LLC (U.S.), Johnson Matthey (U.K.), Solvay S.A. (Belgium), Umicore SA (Belgium), Corning Incorporated (U.S.), and Clariant Corporation (Switzerland).

The global emission control catalyst (ECC) market, in terms of value, is projected to reach USD 16.09 Billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 10.37% from 2016 to 2021. High-growth application areas such as automotive, industrial, and others, and the stringent emission regulations due to increased concern over environmental pollution are key factors driving the growth of the global ECC market.

Palladium based ECCs are projected to constitute the fastest-growing material type segment of the ECC market. The major product types available in the market are palladium, platinum and rhodium-based emission control catalysts.

Palladium is estimated to be the largest market for ECC, as use of palladium has gradually increased in diesel catalytic converters in the past few years. Palladium is used as an oxidation catalyst. It is more widely used in gasoline auto catalysts (petrol-based engines) than in diesel engines.

The ECC market has been segmented based on different applications such as automotive, industrial, and others (locomotive and marine). The automotive industry is the largest market for precious metals based emission control catalysts. This industry accounts for the largest part of the total emission control catalyst market size in terms of value. The demand for platinum group metals is projected to grow at a fast rate in the automotive industry as these resources are mainly used in catalytic converters for heavy duty and light duty vehicles and also in the marine and locomotive industry.

The ECC market is expected to witness substantial growth, due to the stringent emission regulations due to increased concern over environmental pollution. Automotive is the largest market for ECC, the rapid growth in car sales and strict emission standards are contributing to create a powerful source of new demand in the emerging markets 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.

Currently, Europe is estimated to be the largest market for ECC, accounting for more than half of the global market share, by value, in 2015. Germany dominated the European ECC market in 2015, followed by the U.K. Germany is also the fastest-growing market for ECCs. Europe has the largest market for diesel engines and due to constant fuel price fluctuations the market for gasoline-powered engines is lower than that of diesel engines. Platinum is used as catalyst to control emissions in diesel engines since it is the only precious metal that can sustain its performance under high temperature conditions in car exhausts. The demand for palladium and rhodium is projected to grow at a slow rate in Europe, as the usage of gasoline is extremely less in the region. The other metals that are used as emission control catalysts in industrial activities are expected to grow largely due to rise in demand for marine and locomotives.

Emission Control Catalyst Market

Although the ECC market is growing at a significant rate, certain factors could hinder market growth. Dependence of performance on temperature and loss of activity through poisoning and thermal deactivation are restricting the growth of the ECC market.

Companies such as BASF Catalysts LLC (U.S.), Johnson Matthey (U.K.), Solvay S.A. (Belgium), Umicore SA (Belgium), Corning Incorporated (U.S.), and Clariant Corporation (Switzerland) are frontrunners in the global ECC market. These companies have strengthened their market position through diverse product portfolios, strategically positioned R&D centers, consistent strategic development activities, and technological advancements. They have been adopting various organic and inorganic growth strategies, such as expansion, agreements & joint ventures, and new product launch & development to increase their market share.
