NEW YORK, March 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

World Catalysts Market

http://www.reportlinker.com/p097925/World-Catalysts-Market.html

Global demand to rise 6.3% yearly through 2014

World demand for chemical synthesis, petroleum refining and polymerization catalysts will rise 6.3 percent per year to $17.2 billion in 2014, reflecting a combination of healthy volume and average price growth from a weak 2009 base. Chemical synthesis and polymerization catalysts will experience the strongest growth, benefiting from rapid gains in the Middle East and the Asia/Pacific region, as well as Brazil. While petroleum refining catalyst demand will expand at a healthy pace, advances will be limited by weak motor vehicle fuel demand in Japan, the United States and Western Europe.

Middle East to be fastest growing regional market

The strongest growth through 2014 will occur in the Middle East where countries such as Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia will continue to invest in new chemical and polymer capacity in efforts to exploit their plentiful natural gas and petroleum reserves. Petroleum refining capacity will also be expanded throughout the Middle East as the region's national oil companies seek to satisfy rapidly expanding domestic motor vehicle fuel demand. Also experiencing rapid growth through 2014 will be the Asia/Pacific region, though gains will be dominated by China and India due to their size and economic strength. Strong growth in Central and South America will be led by Brazil, which is well positioned to expand its regional dominance of the chemical, petroleum refining and polymer industries due to the recent discovery of plentiful natural gas and petroleum reserves off the country's coast.

North America, Western Europe to trail global average growth rates

The more developed countries in North America and Western Europe will also realize gains in catalyst demand, though growth will trail the global average as companies avoid investing in significant new chemical and polymer capacity due to the prospect for greater growth elsewhere. The growing use of biofuels and the maturity of the motor vehicle market in these countries, as well as the mandated rise in average vehicle fuel economy standards in the United States, will also limit petroleum refining catalyst consumption throughout the forecast period.

Hydrotreating catalysts to remain fastest growing type

Demand for all types of chemical synthesis catalysts will be strong going forward, though the pace of consumption of enzymes for ethanol production will moderate through 2014 following rapid growth over the 2004-2009 period. In polymerization catalysts, new single-site and Ziegler-Natta catalysts will achieve the strongest gains as new capacity is brought online in the Middle East and China, and older technologies are rationalized in North America and Western Europe. Hydrotreating catalysts will continue to achieve the strongest growth in the petroleum refining market, aided by the increasingly sour nature of crude petroleum, as well as efforts by Brazil, China, India and Russia to improve their air quality by the introduction of low-sulfur fuels. Hydrocracking and fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) catalysts will also achieve healthy advances, particularly in the Asia/Pacific region as the growing motor vehicle fleet stimulates new gasoline and diesel fuel demand.

Study coverage
