Global Hydrogenation Catalyst Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Higher Requirement of Hydrogenation Catalyst in Chemical Industry

Heterogeneous catalyst is an essential element of chemical industry as it is responsible for producing over 80% of chemical products in the world. It is extensively used in the production of fragrances, flavors, chemicals and others.

  • Alarming Need to Reduce Green House Gases Emission

Hydrogenation catalyst is easily recyclable. It enables to carry out manufacturing of various chemical, health, cosmetic products in green and sustainable way. It prevents secondary pollution and generation of harmful gases such as greenhouse gases. According to World Economic Forum, in United States, manufacturing industry accounts for 23% of direct carbon emission.

  • Increased Demand for Hydrogenation Catalyst from Pharmaceutical Industry

Hydrogenation catalyst demand is driven by its use in the production of vitamins, dietary supplements, cosmetics, medicines and others. Therefore, rising demand of these products is to influence the market growth. In the time frame of 2017-2018, among the United States’ adults aged 20 or above, nearly 58% used dietary supplements.
