Key Market Trends

Power Industry to Dominate the Market

  • The control of power plant emissions is a major area of application for stationary catalysts. In particular, NOx emissions are removed either by SCR or through NOx dissociation. The abatement of NOx from power plants is important, as it helps to control acid rain and photochemical smog.
  • It was first commercialized in Japan, SCR is extensively used in the country. Currently, it has also been commercialized in Germany, China, and Taiwan. Existing coal-fired plants are generally equipped with emission control systems for reduction of traditional pollutants, such as SOx, NOx, and particulate matter.
  • In the developed countries, the demand is mostly driven by legislative changes, while economic growth is the major source in emerging and developing countries. While emission standards and environmental norms are becoming stricter in developed countries, growth in vehicle production, fuel consumption, and the growth in chemical production are the key drivers for the stationary emission control catalyst market in emerging markets.
  • The stationary catalyst segment is growing considerably faster than the underlying industries, owing to constant innovation, which helps client companies save money and allow catalyst producers to charge a premium for their products.
  • Hence, the power industry is likely to account for the highest market share during the forecast period.

North America to Witness the Highest Growth Rate

  • There are many fossil fuel-based power plants in the United States. Therefore, emission of harmful gases in the environment was high. To control this, in August 2015, the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) issued the clean power plan. This plan states that to cut harmful pollution from the power sector by 32% below the 2005 levels, the country needs to use clean energy (nuclear energy) and emission control catalysts.
  • In addition to this, the EPA has stationary engine regulations that need to be followed, and which are given under National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) and New Source Performance Standards (NSPS). This emission control plan and EPA regulations are driving the market for emission control catalysts in the country.
  • The other end-user industry is the chemical industry, which is one of the largest industries in the United States. It is one of the top exporting sectors in the country, accounting for around 15% of the global chemical shipments.
  • The United States is a world leader in chemical production and exports. Thus, the consumption of stationary emission control catalysts is high, and it is expected to increase further during the forecast period.
  • Canada has emission control guidelines under the Clean Air Act, which are to be followed. Hence, due to these environmental regulations, the consumption of stationary emission control catalysts is increasing.
  • Owing to the aforementioned reasons, North America is likely to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period.
