Catalyst Handling Services Market Size (2022-2027):

The Global Catalyst Handling Services Market size is predicted to reach USD 625 million by 2027, up from USD 510 million in 2021, with a CAGR of 4.7% over the foreseen period 2022-2027.

The call for catalyst handling services is escalating due to the increased consumption of petrochemicals in developed and emerging economies. Petrochemicals have been an important component of industrial civilization. Catalyst discharge is a process in which spent catalysts are discharged in accordance with proper operating procedures such as hot spot check, coke build-up, and contamination check. Catalyst loading is the process of transferring the catalyst from ground level into the reactor.

Market Trends:

Petroleum refining is the largest market due to the growing call for polymeric materials, liquid fuels, and others in sectors such as construction, automotive, aerospace, defense, textiles, etc. Furthermore, the growing call for catalyst handling services to guarantee the highest levels of safety and efficiency in reactor loading and unloading and the use of specific techniques to handle pyrophoric catalysts is responsible for high expansion.

Market Drivers:

The need for this type of service in reactor cleaning and catalyst change operations is driving market expansion. In addition, escalating requirements for reactors operating efficiency in oil and gas refineries are also driving the market. The market will register an expansion peak between 2022 - 2027. The systems are widely preferred in petrochemicals and oil refining, other industrial processing industries. The development of the market for catalyst handling services is also being driven by the escalating use of petrochemicals. Furthermore, the market expansion is driven by an expanding industrial base in countries such as India, Brazil, Australia, South Korea, China, Argentina, and others. The factors driving market expansion are the expansion of macroeconomic models, such as population expansion, combined with increased economic development in developing markets, strict environmental regulations on vehicle pollution, and a greater number of applications in end-user industries

Market Restraints:

The growing call for electric vehicles and the reduction in capital spending by oil and gas companies are important constraints for the market. Factors such as growing problems around air emissions and worldwide warming and federal and state government funding to minimize pollution levels are escalating the need for electric cars. The growing call for BEV affects the use of fuels such as gasoline and diesel and therefore limits the expansion of the industry.

Market Opportunities:

The incorporation of new technologies such as robotics and automation in the handling of catalysts as well as the growing call for biofuels are opportunities for the market. Escalating the recycling of plastic waste and reducing reliance on single-use plastics other than important non-replaceable functions are predicted to reduce the effect of plastics on the environment and thus maintain the call for petrochemical products. The worldwide electric vehicle (BEV) battery has grown exponentially.

Market Challenges:

On the other hand, the decline in oil calls due to Covid-19 is a major challenge for the catalyst handling services market.

Market Segmentation:

Catalyst Handling Services Market - By Service Type:

  • Catalyst loading/unloading

  • Catalyst screening

  • Segregation and storage

  • Catalyst transport and handling

  • Spent catalyst handling

The catalyst loading/unloading segment is predicted to dominate the overall call for catalyst handling services. The process of moving the catalyst from ground level into the reactor is catalyst loading. Catalyst discharge is a system in which spent catalysts are discharged through appropriate operating procedures, such as hot spot testing, coking, and contamination inspection.

Catalyst Handling Services Market - By End-User Industry:

  • Petroleum refining

  • Chemical & fertilizer

  • Petrochemical

  • Others

In modern society, petrochemicals have become an important part of life. For the manufacture of plastics, packaging materials, digital gadgets, detergents, medical supplies, tires, clothing, fertilizers, among others, petrochemicals are employed. High industry figures are also responsible for the growing call for catalyst handling services to achieve the highest degree of protection and performance in reactor loading and unloading and the use of specialized procedures to process pyrophoric catalysts.

Market Regional Analysis:

 The Catalyst Handling Services Report includes the segmentation of Regions:

  •  North America 

  •  Europe 

  •  Asia Pacific 

  •  Latin America 

  •  Middle East & Africa 

The catalyst handling services market in APAC is predicted to record the highest CAGR in value terms during the foreseen period. The region is the fastest-growing market for catalyst handling services due to the presence of emerging countries, their high rate of economic expansion, the rise of infrastructure and industrial projects, and urbanization. Recently, the pandemic has had an impact on regional expansion. Government restrictions on the number of people who can gather in a particular location have seriously affected the industry. However, thanks to the government's stimulus packages to counter negative effects, expansion is predicted to stimulate expansion in a post-pandemic scenario. Asia-Pacific has the largest market share. The region's expansion is attributed to the presence and high rate of economic expansion in developing countries, the increase in infrastructure and manufacturing projects, and increased urbanization. Furthermore, the supply of low-cost raw materials and labor, combined with the special call of domestic consumers, makes APAC an attractive investment option for players in the petrochemical, chemical and fuel industries.

Impact of Covid-19 on Catalyst Handling Services Market:

Since the 1990s, innovation in diesel engines and exhaust control has been exceptionally energetic. Much of the advancement of innovation is driven by regulation, and these controls are currently in various stages of implementation. The field is ready with incremental changes to address old and unemployed challenges to environmental pollution control. Emission control catalysts are employed for all types of engines, such as diesel, petrol, and gas. The large machines found in the production of finished products are also equipped with the emission control catalyst to control the release of toxic gases into the environment. During COVID-19, the production of finished products was stopped to stop the spread of the coronavirus in countries. The call for goods also fell, only the call for basic necessities increased. COVID-19 has slowed the expansion of each industry as each industry is operating at 25% of its full capacity. However, the shares are going to have the highest shares in 2021.
