Analyst Review

Automotive catalytic converter reduces the emissions in the automobiles by removing toxic compounds such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, and hydrocarbon from the exhaust system of vehicles. The manufacturers are engaged in the development of advanced catalytic converters that extensively diminish the toxicity of the emissions as well as improve automobile efficiency.

Growth in adoption of stringent emission norms and rise in vehicle production & sales worldwide are the major factors that drive the market growth. Increase in demand for electric & hybrid vehicles and high R&D expenditures restrain the market growth. Increase in vehicle penetration in the emerging nations is projected to provide lucrative opportunity to the market from 2014 to 2022.

The most popular and efficient catalytic technology currently is the three-way oxidationreduction catalytic converter. Currently, they occupy the major market share, owing to their ultralow emission. The analysis also shows that these converters are expected to generate the maximum revenue during the forecast period. Diesel oxidation catalytic converters are exclusively used in diesel engine vehicles, and are expected to witness a steady demand. The diesel oxidation catalytic converter market is expected to grow during the forecast period, owing to its higher efficiency of about 90% and elimination of diesel odor and visible particulates (soot).

Rhodium catalyst generates the highest revenue in the market in 2015, as it is the most expensive of the three metals, and has by far the highest activity for the removal of oxides of nitrogen from the exhaust. Platinum and palladium industries are anticipated to show high growth rate, owing to the growth in demand for palladium in automotive sector for manufacturing catalytic converters in vehicles.

North America and Europe are the most potential regions for manufacturers to increase their revenue and market share in the global automotive catalytic converter market, as the regions are automotive hub for many OEMs, including General Motors and Ford Motors.

Key players such as Faurecai SA, BASF Catalysts LLC, Eberspaecher GmbH Holding & Co., Magneti Marelli S.P.A, Tenneco Inc., Benteler International AG, Calsonic Kansei Corporation, SMPE Ltd., and Clean Diesel Technologies Inc. are largely engaged in the process of product innovation, collaboration, and acquisition to further expand their services across various geographies.
