Global Catalytic Converter Market Forecast to 2025: Increasing Vehicle Production and Stringency in Emission Norms will Drive the Market - ResearchAndMarkets.com

March 29, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 29, 2019--The “Catalytic Converter Market by Type (FWCC, TWCC, SCR, DOC, and LNT), Material (Platinum, Palladium, and Rhodium), Vehicle Type (Passenger Cars, LCV, Bus & Truck, Construction, and Agriculture & Mining), Aftermarket, Region - Global Forecast to 2025” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The increasing vehicle production and stringency in emission norms will drive the catalytic converter market

The catalytic converter market is projected to grow from USD 42.4 billion in 2018 to USD 73.1 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 8.10%

The major driving factors for the catalytic converter market are stringent emission norms, fuel efficiency regulations, and increasing adoption rate of SCRs in diesel engines around the globe. The demand for catalytic converters is driven by the increasing vehicle production, stringency in emission norms, and technological partnership between OEMs and Tier I players. However, increasing sales of BEVs and the high cost of precious materials are acting as restraints for the catalytic converter market.

Agricultural tractor is estimated to be the largest and fastest growing market for the off-highway vehicle segment.

Agriculture tractors hold the maximum share in the overall off-highway vehicle segment. The demand for agricultural tractors is driven by increasing mechanization rate, rising global population, shortage of skilled farm labor, increasing labor cost, and the growing need for operational efficiency and profitability. With the rising demand for tractors, the demand for several after-treatment devices will also grow simultaneously. DOC and DPF devices are fitted in most of the agricultural tractors to comply with off-highway vehicle emission norms.

The deployment of these devices is more prominent in Europe and North America, and will eventually boost up in the Asian countries also. Alternatively, deployment of SCRs is dependent on the engine capacity. For instance, < 200 kW agricultural tractors are mostly equipped with DOC and DPF, whereas > 200 kW tractors are equipped with DOC, DPF, and SCR. Thus, the growing demand for agricultural tractors and the governments’ push toward lower emissions would drive the catalytic converter market in the coming years.

Asia Oceania is estimated to be the largest catalytic converter market during the forecast period.

The catalytic converter market in Asia Oceania is expected to be the largest during the forecast period. The major driving factors are huge vehicle production and upcoming emission norms in developing countries such as China and India. China and India are currently following China IV and BS IV respectively, and are planning to launch China VI and BS VI directly which will fuel the growth of catalytic converter. However, the adoption rate of after-treatment devices is comparatively low against the European countries, the US, and Canada.
