Biodiesel Catalyst Market Analysis - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends and Forecast, 2018 - 2026

Chemicals and Materials | Delivery Format: PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID: ARC609


Biofuel catalysts are the catalysts consumed in order to produce biofuels by transesterification reactions. Oils and fats used in transesterification reaction in the presence of catalyst are edible and non-edible vegetable oils or animal fats. Advanced biofuels need technologies that are capable to convert renewable feed stocks more efficiently and economically. Catalysts for biofuels are used in hydro treating of natural oils & fats for upgrading and stabilization of pyrolysis oils to produce gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel.

Market Dynamics

The growing threat of fossil fuel depletion is anticipated to propel the expansion of biofuel catalyst market. Extensive use of fossil fuels has increased the emission of carbon dioxide in atmosphere and it is considered as a primary contributor to the global warming. The choice of catalyst for biofuel production depends upon the amount of free fatty acids and raw materials. In order to reduce cost, some researchers have developed new biocatalysts in recent years. No purification necessary for using biocatalysts is an advantage offered by biocatalysts.

Market Classification

The global biodiesel catalyst market is segmented based on product type, application, and geography. Based on product type, the market is segmented into alkaline catalyst, acid catalyst, and enzyme catalysts. Alkali and acid catalysts are commonly used for the production of biofuels owing to their abundant availability. Based on application, the market is segmented into transportation, heating oil, and power generation. Based on geography, the market is divided into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Middle East & Africa (MEA). The biofuel market provides lucrative opportunities in Asia-Pacific owing to the increasing number of diesel vehicles in the region. Europe is another key market for the consumption of biofuel catalysts owing to the attractive automotive industry coupled with advancements in technologies. In North America, the U.S government has decided to implement laws to reduce oil dependency.
