Catalysts in Petroleum Refining Market: Introduction
Catalysis plays a pivotal role in the petroleum refining as most of the processes are catalytic. Petroleum fractions produced through fractional distillation of crude oil does not fulfill the quality standard to be used as fuels and increasing market demands. The improvement in the unconventional oil reserves is highly anticipated to provide a lucrative growth to the catalysts used in the petroleum refining process.
For example, the shale oil processing in North America will enhance the catalyst growth owing to a large number of metal contaminants and heat balance issues. The catalyst in petroleum refining provides optimum butylene selectivity, maximum transformation, and selectivity on the light feed and metals tolerance ability, which will propel the catalysts in the petroleum refining market over the forecast period.
Catalysts in Petroleum Refining Market: Dynamics
The key driving factor for the global catalysts in petroleum refining market is the growing demand for energy from a growing population. The significant increase in sales of catalysts in petroleum refining owing to the rise in consumer demand for gasoline and diesel in developing economies is highly anticipated to drive the global catalysts in petroleum refining market. Moreover, the narrow supply of raw materials surges the overall cost of production, this factor has attracted manufacturers toward large-scale utilization of refinery catalysts, as they help extract relatively more diesel and gasoline from the same amount of crude oil. The key restraining factor such as raw material price volatility and rapidly depleting crude oil reserves may hinder the global catalysts in petroleum refining market growth over the forecast period.
