Catalysts typically possess chemical properties such as reaction initiation, process enhancement, and reaction selectivity to facilitate chemical reactions and process optimization. Each category of catalysts is applicable in a range of end-user industries, owing to its unique properties. For instance, in automotive industry, it is used for reduction of emissions, similarly, it is critical in chemical synthesis owing to its selective and reaction-optimizing properties. Furthermore, catalysts are used for bulk polymerization owing to their selective and isolative in nature.

In chemical industry, it is used as a substance that increases the rate of chemical reactions but is not consumed during the process. It appears in the steps of a reaction mechanism but remains isolated in the final product. By lowering the activation energy, the rate constant is considerably increased relative to the noncatalyzed reaction.

Zeolite segment accounted for around one-fourth of the catalysts market revenue in 2015. Petroleum refining application segment dominated in the demand for catalysts accounted for more than one-fourth of the market in 2015. Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth rate owing to the rise in demand for automotive and spending power of consumers in the emerging economies.
