Refinery catalysts are substances that surge the rate of chemical reactions without themselves undergoing any permanent chemical change. They are used in petroleum refineries to enhance the throughput from the refineries. Refinery catalysts play a major role in helping refiners meet fuel standards, better managing operational efficiency, enhancing conversion and selectivity, and in keeping pace with the green trends. There are various types of refinery catalysts, such as fluid catalytic cracking, hydro treating, hydrocracking, and alkylation that are used in refineries to increase the efficiency of refining operations.

Refining catalysts are used to refine crude oil. Shale oils now days are becoming a major feed source for large number of refineries. While these feedstock’s are generally sweet and light, issues the refiners are facing when processing tight oil include: contaminant metals, configurationally imbalances and heat balance effects, in the refinery. The refinery catalysts provide solutions for metals tolerance; achieve maximum conversion and selectivity on light feeds, and optimum butylene selectivity. The refiners can now apply new catalyst technologies to maximize the value present in tight oil feedstock’s. New levels of flexibility will be required in refinery processes as products demand change and the availability of specific crudes is altered. Consequently, new and continuous innovations in the field of petroleum refining are needed. As petroleum is predicted to remain the most important single resource for transportation through year 2050, the development of new refinery technologies and catalysts will be of utmost importance in the coming future.

The refinery catalyst market is estimated to witness a CAGR of 4.24% between 2014 and 2019, and is projected to generate a market size of $6,707.92 million by 2019.

The report on “Refinery Catalysts” considers its four commonly used type: FCC catalysts, hydro treating catalysts, hydrocracking catalysts and alkylation catalysts. The refinery catalysts industry is witnessing high growth because of increasing demand for transportation fuels, increased consumption of petroleum-based derivatives, and growing demand in the Asia-Pacific region. Refinery catalysts are largely used in oil refining industries. Stringent environmental regulations and demand for high octane number are further driving the refinery catalysts market globally. The oil refining industry is the end-user of the refinery catalysts products and is expected to drive the refinery catalysts market.

Refinery catalysts are used in petroleum refineries to enhance the throughput from the refineries. Refinery catalysts have tremendous potential to fulfill the mounting demands for petroleum products. They play a major role in helping refiners meet fuel standards and better manage operational efficiency. Hydro treating catalysts dominate the refinery catalysts market by type. The market size for the same is projected to reach $2,213.05 million by 2019. The demand for clean fuels is growing at a high rate due to increasing environmental issues. Zeolites currently form the largest ingredient market for refinery catalysts; metals are also witnessing increasing demand from the manufacturers of refinery catalysts. Hydrocracking catalysts is the fastest growing type of refinery catalysts.

Row is expected to witness high growth rates during the forecast period (2014 - 2019) followed by Asia-Pacific, North America, and Europe. The refinery catalysts market in Europe and North America is matured and is expected to witness below average growth during the forecast period, whereas, refinery catalyst market in Asia-Pacific is growing mainly due to surging energy demand in the emerging economies such as India, Japan and China. Refinery catalysts industry is witnessing the shift in the manufacturing base from the West to Asia-Pacific region due to low cost advantage in terms of labor and raw materials.

The key participants in this market are Haldor Topsoe (Denmark), Albemarle Corporation (U.S.), W.R. Grace & Co. (U.S.), BASF SE (Germany), Honeywell international Inc. (U.S.), Axens S.A. (France), China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation (China), Johnson Matthey Plc. (U.K.), and Clariant AG (Switzerland).
