Future Market Insights

$ 5000

A heavy Oil Cracking Catalyst is an integral part of any oil refinery process. These catalysts are used to convert high molecular weight and high boiling point hydrocarbons to more valuable products such as olefin gases, gasoline and other petroleum products. The suppliers generally provide a dedicated technical team to their customers to provide better provide pre-sales, sales and after-sales services based on specific requirements of individual refineries to perfectly combine feedstock, operation parameters and catalysts for maximum effectiveness. Heavy Oil Cracking Catalysts help in cracking the hydrocarbon chain in distilled crude oil to produce transportation fuels such as gasoline and diesel fuels and other petroleum-based products. Apart from cracking, Heavy Oil Cracking Catalyst additives are also used to reduce sulfur in gasoline, maximize propylene production in refinery units and reduce sulfur oxide, nitrogen oxide and carbon monoxide emission from refinery cracking units. The demand for additives is expected to rise in near future as cracking produces sulphur and nitrogen compounds. The high demand for ultra-low sulphur containing diesel and aviation fuels will be a major driving factor propelling the growth of the heavy oil cracking catalyst market. Also, supply solutions to meet customized needs of the clients through tailored products and services will add to the growth of this market.


Heavy Oil Cracking Catalyst Market: Drivers and Restraints

Increasing scarcity of oil resources is one of the key factors driving demand of Heavy Oil Cracking Catalysts in coming years. These catalysts are required for improving light oil yield and efficiently utilizing existing oil resources. The primary source of air pollution are the olefins that exist in vehicle exhaust. Developing countries such as China and India will face issues regarding depleting petroleum reserves due to high economic growth. Also, increasing usage of petroleum products to cater to rising demand from manufacturing, industrial and transportation sectors is also anticipated to drive the demand for Heavy Oil Cracking Catalysts during the forecast. Cracking catalysts that reduce olefins in gasoline are anticipated to gain importance in coming years to comply with rigorous environmental protection standards being implemented by various government authorities. The demand for heavy oil cracking catalysts will also be fueled by expected technological up gradation and enhancement of existing equipment in the region.  However, high operation and investment costs are two major restraints expected to negatively impact future demand for Heavy Oil Cracking Catalysts. Demand for gasoline in developed regions such as Europe and North America is declining and this may heavily impact Heavy Oil Cracking Catalyst industry growth in these regions.
