“Platinum and Palladium Carbon Catalyst Market”
Platinum and Palladium Carbon Catalyst Market: Information by Metal (Platinum Carbon Catalyst and Palladium-Carbon Catalyst), End-Use Industry (Automotive, Chemicals, Aerospace, Pharmaceuticals and others) and Region (North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia-Pacific and Middle East & Africa) – Global Forecast till 2024

Market Overview

The global platinum and palladium carbon catalyst market is estimated to reach over USD 540 million by the end of 2024, expanding at a CAGR of 4.0% during the forecast period.

Platinum- and palladium-carbon catalysts are extensively used in the chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing industries as hydrogenation catalysts for a wide variety of organic synthesis and coupling reactions. Platinum catalyst and palladium catalyst are supported on charcoal or activated carbon to optimize the surface area and activity. Platinum- and palladium-carbon catalyst are often referred to as platinum on carbon (Pt/C) and palladium on carbon (Pd/C). These catalysts find application in the chemical, pharmaceutical, automotive, petrochemical, and electronic industries as they enhance the performance during chemical processing and organic synthesis. The performance of platinum- and palladium-carbon catalyst can be described based on mesh size, noble metal content, and purity of carbon, among others. Moreover, the activity of platinum and palladium on carbon is highly susceptible to the method chosen to introduce palladium/platinum into the structure and to absorb it on the surface of the charcoal particles.

Segment Analysis

Based on metal, the global platinum- and palladium-carbon catalyst market has been segmented into platinum-carbon catalyst and palladium-carbon catalyst. The platinum-carbon catalyst segment accounted for the largest share of the global market in 2018. The segment is expected to witness healthy growth during the forecast period, owing to the high demand in the automotive and chemical industries, due to its relatively low cost. The increasing R&D investment in the platinum catalyst and palladium catalyst to reduce the precious metal content in the catalyst while enhancing the performance and reducing the operating cost is driving the market growth. Most of the liquid phase batch hydrogenations are performed with 5% palladium on carbon paste. While 50% platinum on carbon paste is generally used for polymer electrolyte fuel cell (PEMFC), microbial fuel cell (MFC), direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC), and phosphoric acid fuel cell (PAFC) applications.

By end-use industry, the global platinum- and palladium-carbon catalyst market has been divided into automotive, chemical, aerospace, pharmaceutical, and others. The chemical segment accounted for the largest share of the global platinum- and palladium-carbon catalyst market, followed by the automotive segment. The demand in the automotive industry is expected to increase significantly, owing to increasing efforts made by automakers to reduce the emission and carbon footprint due to increasing environmental concerns and stringent emission regulations.
