Competitive vendor landscape

According to the research analysis, the global automobile catalyst market is concentrated because the major share of the market is captured by key vendors. The major strategy adopted by the companies are mergers and acquisitions and joint ventures.

Automotive catalyst companies are investing in R&D in order to meet the consumer demand and at the same time help automobile manufacturing companies to design and manufacture cars according to various government regulations. Major vendors are BASF, CATALER, Clariant, Johnson Matthey, and Umicore.

According to Mohd Shakeel Iqbal, a lead analyst at Technavio for specialty chemicals research, “Automotive catalysts convert harmful exhaust gases such as NOX, hydrocarbons, CO, and other particulate matter into non-toxic chemicals such as nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and water. The demand for the high-performance catalyst is increasing because the emission levels in various countries are changing, and governments are becoming stringent on new auto fuel policy. Policies of various countries are expected to match global standards such as Euro V and VI emission standards. In fact, the US and countries in Europe have already started to impose taxes on carbon emissions to reduce the environmental pollution.”
