Expansion of Polymer Resin Production and Stringent Environmental Regulations to Drive the Global Polymerization Catalysts Market - BASF SE, Bayer, Clariant International Ltd., Johnson Matthey Inc., UOP LLC, Dow Chemicals and Nova Chemicals Corporation Among Major Market Players

Mordor Intelligence releases their report on the Global Polymerization Catalysts. The report elucidates the situation of Polymerization Catalysts around the world and studies the markets of the Polymerization Catalysts type which include Polyolefins, Condensation Polymers, Thermosetting Polymers and Additional Polymers. The report is also divided by geography - North Americas, Europe, the Asia-Pacific (APAC), South America and Middle-East & Africa (MEA); where-in the market share of each region is analyzed and estimates are provided for the next 5 years. The various applications of Polymerization Catalysts have been discussed in detail in addition to a comprehensive overview of the market.

Global Polymerization Catalysts market by revenue was $4,439.9 million in 2014, and is projected to reach$6,298 million in 2020, thereby witnessing a growth of CAGR 6%. The developing regions of South America and Asia Pacific are expected to increase its market share in the future owing to the growing purchasing power in the developing countries.

According to our analysis, plastic products will continue to displace other materials in a variety of applications, while rising incomes in developing nations will also contribute to additional plastic consumption. Ziegler- Natta and single-site catalysts will benefit most. Rapid growth is expected to occur in both Asia and the Middle East. In Asia, growth will be led by China and India, and result from rapid industrialization and expansion of the refining, chemical and polymer industries in both countries. China's rising income levels, vehicle ownership rates, and industrial activity will all contribute to strong growth in demand for catalysts. In the Middle East, Saudi Arabia and other large oil and natural gas producers will continue efforts to expand and diversify their economies by investing in new chemical and petroleum refining capacity. Polymer producers in the Middle East will increasingly compete in global markets. Brazil will lead strong growth in Central andSouth America. The country is beginning to successfully develop its natural gas and oil resources. This will provide a competitive advantage for chemical and polymer producers, while the nation's large population will provide a strong market for products manufactured with the use of catalysts. Catalyst demand in North America will see healthy growth as well, due largely to a rebound in chemical and polymer production as companies take advantage of comparatively low natural gas prices.

BASF SE, Bayer, Clariant International Ltd., Johnson Matthey Inc., Kbr Inc., UOP LLC, Dow Chemicals and Nova Chemicals Corporation among others are some of the major global companies included in this report.
