Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) Catalyst Market Forecast, Trend, Analysis & Competition Tracking - Global Market Insights 2020 to 2030

Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) Catalyst Market

Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) Catalyst Market Analysis

The global selective catalytic reduction (SCR) catalyst market is poised to embark on a positive growth trajectory, registering a CAGR of 9% over the forecast period (2020-2030). Despite rapid growth in the renewable energy sector, coal-fired thermal power plants continue to prosper in most developing countries, owing to rising electricity demand coupled with the growing population.

The shortfall in electricity generation through other conventional resources such as natural gas, oil, and nuclear power is creating a lucrative growth scenario for coal-fired thermal power plants. Since most countries have strict emission limits for nitrogen oxide (Nox), Nox control systems are significantly deployed. As SCR catalyst technology is highly cost-efficient over other NOx removal technologies, this will augment the implementation of SCR catalyst technologies in coal-fired thermal power plants, positively impacting the expansion of the selective catalytic reduction catalyst market size.

Selective Catalytic Reduction Catalyst Market Insights by Application

Efficacy to reduce NOx emissions from power-generating equipment, including boilers & turbines, furnaces, heaters, and reciprocating engines has made SCR catalysts the ideal choice among end users, along with being a cost-effective technology. Attributed to this, power plants have been identified as the largest consumers of SCR catalysts, and are poised to maintain their reign throughout the forecast period, accounting for over one-third of the global market share.

Furthermore, high dependability of Asian economies on coal-fired thermal power plants to fulfil their growing electricity demand is anticipated to boost the SCR catalyst market. Increasing demand for denitration in petroleum refineries across the world, owing to stringent emission control regulations, is poised to result in high demand for SCR catalysts during the forecast period.

Regional Outlook of Selective Catalytic Reduction Catalyst Market

China accounted for over half of the additional new coal-fired thermal power plants in 2019, due to which, East Asia has driven the consumption of SCR catalysts during the historical period, and is poised to maintain its dominance over other reigns during the forecast period. This growth is attributed to China’s dominant position in the renewable sector, and its large investments in renewable energy each year, which is more than the United States and Europe combined.

South Asian and ASEAN countries such as India, Indonesia, Vietnam, and others contributed around one-fourth of the additional new coal-fired thermal power plants in 2019. Attributed to this, the selective catalytic reduction catalyst market in South Asia is poised to expand at a leading growth rate of 8% during the forecast period.

Competition Analysis of Selective Catalytic Reduction Catalyst Market

The global SCR catalyst market is partially consolidated in nature, where the top four players currently account for near half of the global production and sales. Currently, BASF SE, Johnson Matthey, Ceram-Ibiden, and Haldor Topsoe are the key stakeholders in selective catalytic reduction catalyst market.

In order to sustain existing market competition, majorly from European players, manufacturers have strategically located their production plants in the Asia Pacific region to reduce raw material procurement costs and additionally-imposed custom duties. In sync with this, major partnerships and long-term supply agreements have been observed in the market. New production plants are being set up, and the production capacities of existing plants are being ramped up.

For instance, in June 2018, BASF and Citrine Informatics collaborated to use artificial intelligence (AI) to accelerate the development of new environmental catalyst technologies. Similarly, in Feb 2020, Haldor Topsoe launched the TITAN steam reforming catalyst series with boosted reliability and efficiency.

COVID-19 Impact on Selective Catalytic Reduction Catalyst Market

The coronavirus outbreak has brought the world on its knees, and has forced people to amidst lockdowns in their homes, which has affected production and demand across the globe. The fear of COVID-19 has forced countries to stop any kind of import-export across borders.

Sudden industrial shutdowns and transportation restrictions have crippled the global economy in the last few months. As per WHO and UN stats, loss caused due to the coronavirus outbreak may take years to recover. All in all, the coronavirus pandemic has affected every industry, and the SCR catalyst market is no exception.

At present, East Asia is the least affected region by the coronavirus outbreak, and is poised to assist global market growth by the end of 2020. However, disruptions in import-export due to the pandemic situation have decreased the availability of raw material, which is a biggest challenge for East Asian manufacturers. The United States and Europe are the most effected regions by the pandemic, and are the largest markets after Asia Pacific for SCR catalysts, which will result in a declining growth rate until the situation gets better.

The Analyst’s Viewpoint

“In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the global selective catalytic reduction catalyst market is poised to suffer a likely loss of US$ 50 Mn by the end of 2020”.
