World Catalysts to 2016 - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

World demand for catalysts will rise 5.8 percent per year to $19.5 billion in 2016. Rapid growth will occur in both Asia and the Middle East. Brazil will lead strong growth in Central and South America. Polymerization catalysts will experience the fastest growth, driven by healthy expansion of polymer resin production.

This study analyzes the $14.7 billion world catalyst industry, with forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by material (e.g., metals, organometallic materials, chemicals, zeolites, enzymes), type (e.g., hydroprocessing, FCC, organic synthesis, Ziegler-Natta), market (e.g., petroleum refining, chemical synthesis, polymerization), world region and for 24 countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 33 industry players such as BASF, WR Grace, and Johnson Matthey.
