The global catalysts market
[http://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/global-refinery-catalyst-market.html ] is
dominated by Asia Pacific, which accounted for 33% of total volume consumed across the
world in 2011. Growth of the catalysts market in Asia Pacific is mainly driven by growing
demand from the chemicals industry. Asia Pacific is leading the global chemical industry
in terms of both production and consumption. The demand for catalysts in Asia Pacific is
expected grow at a rapid pace as compared to North America and Europe. Asia Pacific was
followed by North America with 30.6% share in total volume consumption. Growth of the
catalysts market in North America is mainly driven by growing demand for catalysts from
petroleum refineries. Europe is another important geography, where increasingly stringent
regulations are driving demand for environmental catalysts.

In terms of application, chemical synthesis segment dominated the global market,
accounting for 29.4% of total catalyst volume consumed in 2011. Strong demand from Asia
Pacific is expected to be a major growth driver for chemical synthesis catalysts.
Environmental catalysts formed another critical market segment, accounting for 28.7% share
of total catalysts volume consumed in 2011. The major driving factor for the growth of
environmental catalysts is the various regulations introduced by different countries for
effective emission control to safeguard the eco system. Petroleum refinery is another
important market for catalysts. However, demand for petroleum refinery catalysts is
expected to move at a sluggish rate owing to tight refining margins.

Catalyst regeneration market is expected to reach 1,688.8 kilo tons in 2018, growing
at a CAGR of 3.5% from 2012 to 2018. Off-site regeneration dominated the market,
accounting for 63.9% of total regenerated volumes in 2011.
