Industrial catalytic converters are devices that use a redox process to transform poisonous and damaging particles in exhaust gases. Either oxidation or a reduction process is involved in a redox reaction. Catalytic converters should be used in all industrial exhaust systems because many nations have strict environmental regulations.
Industrial catalytic converters are used in a variety of industries, including refineries, steel mills, and manufacturing, where harmful gas emissions are considerable. These devices are primarily used to transform dangerous exhaust gases like CO (carbon monoxide), HC (hydrocarbons), and NO (nitrogen oxides), among others, into less toxic and harmful gases like CO2, N2, and others.
An industrial catalytic converter consists of two ceramic and metallic columns, each with a catalyst coating. The metallic column is directly placed on the main body, while the ceramic column provides thermal and vibration shock protection.
Platinum, rhodium, or palladium are utilised as catalysts in this device, and they are coated on a ceramic column and connected to the outlet. Platinum was once a popular catalyst, but due to its exorbitant cost, rhodium and palladium are becoming increasingly popular.
While there are many types of industrial catalytic converters, two of the prominent ones are two-way catalytic converter and three-way catalytic converter. Two-way industrial catalytic converters are mainly used in some engines, such as diesel, gasoline, and others in order to decrease the emission of CO (carbon monoxide), NO (nitrogen oxide) and HC (hydrocarbons).
Three-way converters are used to control highly harmful and toxic gasses emission, such as NO2 (nitrogen dioxide), and nitric oxide, among others that cause smog and acid rain.
Industrial Catalytic Converters Market: Dynamics
Increasing industrialization across the world in industries, such as automobile, chemical, textile, and increasing manufacturing of electrical equipment, and steel products drives the demand for industrial catalytic converters. Additionally, stringent norms set by government authorities in various countries are influencing the demand for industrial catalytic converters.
On the other hand, with the evolution of technology, the automobile industry is shifting towards electric vehicles, which will act as a restraint for the global industrial catalytic converters market. The use of non-noble metals in the manufacturing of industrial catalytic converters is a key trend identified recently.
Increase in vehicle production and sales, and increase in global industrialization can foster a strong potential opportunity for this market. At the same time, fluctuating prices of some of the metals used in the manufacturing of industrial catalytic converters can be a major challenge for the market.
Industrial Catalytic Converters Market: Regional Outlook
The Asia Pacific region holds a majority of the market share as compared to other regions, followed by Europe and then North America – both of which are expected to grow at the same rate. The demand for industrial catalytic converters in countries, such as China, India, and South Korea in Asia Pacific is expected to grow, owing to the continuous growth of chemical and textile industries in the region.
Europe is seen as a potential market for the industry, due to the upcoming emission standards for the reduction of carbon monoxide from various industries. Also, Europe and North America show promising opportunities for the industrial catalytic converters market, as the regions are chemical manufacturing hubs.
The demand for industrial catalytic converters is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of around 8% globally over the forecasted period, which can be attributed to the increase in demand from textile and manufacturing industries.
