“Stringent emission regulations and increasing vehicle production & parc are driving the catalytic converter market”
The catalytic converter market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.05%, to reach a market size of USD 55.16 billion by 2021. The implementation of stringent emission norms globally and increasing vehicle production as well as parc are driving the catalytic converter original equipment (OE) market and aftermarket. Alternatively, growing demand for electric vehicles can undermine the demand for catalytic converters.
“Passenger cars constitute the largest catalyst converter market globally”
According to MarketsandMarkets analysis, passenger cars account for almost 74% of the total vehicle production globally. Therefore, the major demand for catalyst converters is generated by passenger car production. In addition, the demand for passenger cars is increasing, especially in emerging countries such as China and India. Also, the share of new gasoline-fueled passenger cars is increasing, as compared to diesel-fueled passenger cars. Therefore, the catalytic converter market for passenger cars is the largest market globally. The growth of this market can be attributed to increasing production and growing consumer preference for passenger cars.
“Asia-Oceania: Fastest growing catalytic converter market in the automotive industry”
The Asia-Oceania region leads the catalytic converter market, owing to increasing vehicle production in countries such as China and India. Further, the vehicle production in these countries is projected to grow at >6.0% CAGR during the period of next five years. This has led to the increased demand for catalytic converters in this region. To meet this demand, leading catalytic converter manufacturers such as Faurecia SA (France), Tenneco, Inc. (U.S.), and Eberspacher Group (Germany) have set up their manufacturing plants in the region. Thus, owing to the presence of leading tier-1 manufacturers and OEMs, the Asia-Oceania region is estimated to be the largest catalytic converter market globally. Additionally, the rising demand for gasoline fueled passenger cars is expected to have contributed towards the growth of this market.
