Hydrogenation catalyst Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Product Type (Precious metal based, Common metal based, Alloy based), By Form (Homogenous Catalyst, Heterogeneous Catalyst), By End-Use (Oil & Gas, Chemical, Pharmaceuticals, Petrochemicals, Polymer, Others) And Regional Forecast 2022-2029

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI104681 | Status : Ongoing



Hydrogenation is a significant chemical reaction between hydrogen and other chemical, compound or element in presence of catalysts like nickel palladium or platinum. The catalysts used for hydrogenation are called as hydrogenation catalyst. These catalysts are commercially used in hydrogenation of Carbon-Carbon (C-C) bond, nitro group reduction, and also removal of benzyloxycarbonyl and benzyl groups. Some of the examples of these catalysts are Crabtree’s catalyst, Wilkinson’s catalyst, metals like platinum, palladium, and others.

The growing demand for heterogeneous catalysts from chemical & industrial application areas is likely to drive the market. use of hydrogenation reaction for various synthesis and manufacturing of products. Additionally, increasing adoption of asymmetrical hydrogenation is one of the key factor boosting the market.

However, there are stringent regulations imposed by regulatory authorities for environmental well-being of society. The catalyst industry is under strict scrutiny due to the potential negative effects due to emission of toxins.

Key Market Driver -

Increasing adoption of hydrogenation in several syntheses.

Key Market Restraint -

Stringent regulations imposed by environmental regulatory authorities.
