Catalysts are chemical compounds that are used to increase the rate of a chemical reaction by lowering or increasing the process's activation energy. Metal-based catalysts play an important role in the catalytic transformation of organic compounds. As catalysts for the transformation of organic compounds, simple metal oxides, metal salts, or metal complexes can exhibit high activity.
Metal Based Catalysts Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:
- Increased Demand for Platinum
Platinum is a majorly market used within the market because the platinum catalyst helps to reduce CO2 emissions. It is primarily used in the automobile industry to reduce the impact of pollutants emitted by industrial processing units. The rise in the sale of diesel vehicles validates the majority of platinum consumption. Platinum is also used as one of the emission control catalysts. As a result of the region's implementation of more stringent Euro 6 and Euro 7 emission rules, it is expected to dominate the European market. Moreover, many essential catalysts rely on platinum, palladium, ruthenium, rhodium, iridium, and osmium, so the platinum group metals are also used in the pharmaceutical industry.
- High Utilization Across Industries and Growing Environmental Concerns
Metal catalysts are widely used in many industries, including petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals for chemical synthesis, automobiles, and refining. The significant growth of these industries in recent years, combined with strict emission control regulations and the need for cleaner fuels, heavy, and sour crudes, is driving the demand for metal catalysts. Emission control norms have become more stringent in many developing and developed countries over the last decade, with developed regions such as North America and Europe becoming tougher with legal ramifications. Stringent emission control regulations, which have been dominant in Europe and the United States, are gradually gaining traction in the Asia-Pacific region. These regulations have encouraged the growth of the global precious metal catalysts market by reducing vehicle emissions.
Furthermore, the increasing awareness about the advantages of metal based catalysts will further propel the growth rate of metal based catalysts market. Additionally, the expansion of the automotive industry is also projected to bolster the growth of the market.
- Surging Research and Development and Investments
Furthermore, various research and development activities to reduce costs and to improve the quality of catalysts extend profitable opportunities to the market players in the forecast period of 2022 to 2029. Additionally, the increasing investment in automobile sectors will further expand the metal-based catalysts market's future growth.
- Disadvantages Of Metal based Catalysts
The various disadvantages of metal-based catalysts such as performance dependency on temperature and loss of activity through poising and thermal deactivation coupled with the price volatility in metals will create hindrances for the metal-based catalysts market's growth.
- Growing Demand for Electronic Vehicles (EVs)
Also, the rising demand of electronic vehicles (EVs) further reduces the usage of precious metals in automobile will prove to be a demerit for the metal based catalysts market. Therefore, this factor is anticipated to challenge the metal based catalysts market growth rate.
