Refinery Catalyst Market to be Hit Hard During Covid-19 Pandemic Owing to Slump in Oil Industry Activities, Market to Grow 1.5x by 2027 Says Future Market Insights

Refinery catalyst market players are likely to focus their offerings towards Asian markets owing to more resilient local refinery demand, even as those in the developed countries have largely lagged.

DUBAI, UAE / ACCESSWIRE / August 27, 2020 / The refinery catalyst market is likely to expand 1.5x between 2019 and 2027 to reach a valuation of US$ 10 billion during this period. The coronavirus outbreak is expected to have a severe impact on the industry as consumption of transport fuels have slumped sharply during the crisis, which in turn has resulted in reduced processing and refining activities, hurting the demand for refinery catalysts. Recovery is likely to be gradual with continuing economic uncertainty from the outbreak.

“Global refinery catalyst manufacturers are largely focused on the development of offerings which are compatible with varying feedstocks while ensure reliable, stable, and profitable hydro-processing applications. Sustainability approaches will remain important throughout the forecast period,” says the FMI study.

Refinery Catalyst Market – Leading Takeaways

  • Demand for metal catalysts is projected to gain ground in emerging economies, supported by favorable government policies towards foreign direct investment in mineral production.
  • Hydrocracking applications are contributing significantly to sales owing to efficacy in boosting yields and middle distillate petroleum fractions.
  • Asia Pacific, driven by China and India is a major market for refinery catalysts, owing to the rise in number of private sector companies involved in the refining sector.

Refinery Catalyst Market – Growth Factors

  • Strong demand for petroleum derivatives is a key driver for demand of refinery catalysts.
  • Strict regulations associated with emission control and sulfur content in refined oil boosts demand.

Refinery Catalyst Market – Constraints

  • High costs of raw materials and production processes is a key challenge hindering market players.
  • Growing infrastructure for alternative and renewable energy sources is a major obstacle to demand.

Expected Impact on Market by Coronavirus Outbreak

The coronavirus outbreak has resulted in the collapse of transport fuel consumption. The oil industry has consequently reduced processing rates or temporarily suspended refinery operations. However, rising costs of crude coupled with poor demand are hurting the refinery catalyst market. Weaker players are facing a survival threat, particularly in Europe and North America. More resilient demand in Asia and Middle East will influence short term market developments.
