European catalyst production is expected to slow slightly due the shift of catalyst manufacturing base to Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa. However with continuous implementation of new government norms and legislations which result in more investments in catalysts to provide the expected pollution standards and better quality, the catalyst market would be boosted. In the European Union, the regulation - REACH (regulation on registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals) is responsible for making industries responsible for accessing and managing the risks posed by chemicals and complying with quality standards. Hydroprocessing catalyst market is boosted by the presence of more stringent vehicle emission standards which require low sulfur fuel.
Market Dynamics for the European market for catalysts in petroleum refining, chemicals and polymer synthesis:
The increasing demand for petroleum products and polymers is a major driver for the market. There is also a rise in demand for high octane fuels and stringent environmental norms against the use of large amounts of sulphur in fuel thus, increasing the innovation in the market for more environment friendly products.
The high manufacturing costs and the depleting natural resources are the restraints to this market. Other factors like the fluctuating precious metal prices and the weakening economy in many countries also weaken the market growth.
