Emission Control Catalysts Market by Type, Application and Region - Global Forecast to 2026

·6-min read

Dublin, Nov. 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Emission Control Catalysts Market by Type (Palladium, Platinum, Rhodium), Application (Mobile Sources, Stationary Sources), and Region - Forecast to 2026" report has been added to's offering.

The global emission control catalysts (ECC) market is estimated at USD 42.9 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 59.8 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period. The market is driven by various factors, such as increase in the use of automotive diesel engines, and stringent emission regulations from the government. However, dependence of performance on temperature and loss of activity through poisoning and thermal deactivation can restrain the growth of the market.

Increase usage of gasoline engines leads to growing demand of palladium in catalytic converter

Palladium is one of the metals from the PGM group that dominates the catalytic converter technology. Palladium is used as an oxidation catalyst which is widely used in gasoline autocatalyst (petrol based engines) the in diesel engines. Palladium is not suitable for diesel-based autocatalyst because the fuel has high level of Sulphur content, which sticks to palladium but not platinum.

Stringent emission regulations in mobile sources to grow the demand for ECC

The mobile industry is the largest market for PGM based on ECC. The ECC market is derived further dividing the market into on road, and off road. Stringent emission regulations, and increasing pollution have increased the demand for ECC market.

APAC is expected to register the highest growth during the forecast period

APAC is expected to register the highest growth during the forecast period. Increasing population, growing industrialization, strict government norms, and environmental regulations are the key factors attributed to the overall growth of the market in the region. The increasing developments in the automotive industries in emerging countries of the region are providing huge growth opportunities for the ECC market.
