World Catalysts - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

World demand for catalysts will grow 4.8 percent per year to $20.6 billion in 2018. Growth will be led by a rebound in the chemical and polymer industries, most notably in developed economies hit hard by the recession. The fastest advances, however, will occur in developing areas such as the Asia/Pacific and Africa/Mideast regions.

This study analyzes the $16.3 billion world catalyst industry. It presents historical demand data (2003, 2008 and 2013) and forecasts (2018 and 2023) by material (e.g., metals, organometallic materials, chemicals, zeolites, enzymes), product (e.g., organic synthesis, oxidation, synthesis gas, hydrogenation, hydroprocessing, fluid catalytic cracking, alkylation, Ziegler-Natta, reaction initiators), market, (e.g., chemical synthesis, petroleum refining, polymerization), world region, and for 18 countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 34 industry players, including BASF, WR Grace, and Johnson Matthey.
