Study Goals And Objectives

Photocatalysts are materials that utilize photons to activate chemical reactions. Although the origins of photocatalysts can be traced back to the year 1791, when the new element titanium was discovered, it was only in the late 1960s that the photocatalytic properties of titanium dioxide were observed.

The first commercial products based on photocatalysts were commercialized in the early 1990s, and since then there has been growing interest in these materials leading to their use in different applications within various sectors, such as the construction and consumer products sectors.

Since 2010, the market for these materials and related products has continued to expand, while new technological developments and industry changes have also taken place.

The primary goal of this report is to provide insights into photocatalytic technology, as well as to outline technological trends and to offer an updated market analysis of various photocatalyst-based products.

Specifically, the major objectives of this study are as follows:

- Provide an updated review of photocatalysts, including a description of materials, types of photocatalysts, and production technologies.
- Highlight new technological developments in photocatalyst manufacturing, while outlining current technical issues.
- Review existing fields of application for photocatalysts and examine emerging applications.

Estimate current global markets for photocatalyst-based products by material type, application, and region, with growth forecasts through 2020 for each market segment. Identify important technology and industry trends within each market segment. Offer an updated review of current industry players, including manufacturers photocatalyst materials and photocatalyst-based products, technology developers, and future market participants. Provide a description of the most relevant research and development activities. Determine trends in recently issued U.S. patents.

Reasons For Doing This Study

Photocatalysts represent a special type of catalyst that utilizes photons as a source energy to activate certain reactions. The super-hydrophilic properties of these materials and their ability to decompose particular types of organic and inorganic molecules have been exploited in numerous applications, including materials and coatings for residential and commercial construction, deodorizing products, automotive coatings, appliances, sterilization articles, and water treatment products, just to name a few.

In 2009, the market for photocatalyst-based products was valued at approximately $850 million. At 6.5% of the global catalyst market, photocatalysts still represent the smallest segment of the total catalyst industry. Photocatalysts were first commercialized in Japan. As the unique properties of these materials are becoming better known globally and new, more efficient materials are being developed and marketed, interest in this technology is expanding. In addition, global economic conditions have continued to improve since 2010, various related industry sectors have resumed growth, and new applications have been developed.

The principal objective of this report is to present a current assessment of the photocatalyst industry from both a technological and market point of view and outline future trends and key developments. There is also a need to evaluate the current status and future trends of this market from a global standpoint. As the use this technology expands and new fields of application emerge, information on suppliers and developers of photocatalyst products and their regional distribution becomes more valuable.

An equally important reason for undertaking this report is to provide technical insights into photocatalyst manufacturing by:

- Offering a review of materials, photocatalyst types, and production methods.
- Identifying current technological trends.
- Providing an overview of the main global R&D activities related to photocatalysts that
- have resulted in the issuance of patents.
- Illustrating the latest technological developments.
- This information can assist companies in identifying opportunities for process and productivity improvements and new product development, resulting in a positive impact on future market growth.
