The increasing demand for petroleum products coupled with the growing
concerns towards the environment is expected to continue to drive the growth
of the overall market for refinery catalyst. The benefits of refinery
catalysts are attracting an increasing number of petroleum refineries and
thus boosts the demand. In addition, intensive R&D efforts and increasing
investments on refinery catalysts are expected to improve the efficiency of
these products. The global Refinery Catalyst market is estimated to reach
$3.4 billion in 2015 from about $3 billion in 2010.

EMEA has a large refinery catalyst market due to the presence of major
oil producing countries in the region like Saudi Arabia and Iraq. EMEA is
expected to account for 33% of the global refinery catalyst market in 2015.
The APAC refinery catalyst market is expected to be worth $921.4 million in
2015 from $723.9 million in 2009. The region is expected to have a high CAGR
of 3.28% from 2010 - 2015 due to its increasing capacity of refinery
catalysts. The saturation of the North American and EMEA market is expected
to boost the APAC market.

The global refinery catalyst is categorized into FCC (fluid catalytic
cracker), hydro processing (hydro cracking and hydro treating),
isomerization, alkylation and others. FCC is a key conversion process of
petroleum refining, dominated the market with 38.5% followed by
hydroprocessing catalysts with 32%. The demand for hydroprocessing catalysts
has been increasing primarily because these reduce the high levels of
impurities present in the feedstock. The hydro-treating catalysts segment
accounted for the largest share i.e. 74.2% of the overall hydroprocessing
catalysts market at $667.6 million in 2009. This segment is expected to reach
$869million in 2015, at a CAGR of 3.53% for the period 2010-2015.
