Heavy oil cracking catalysts are an integral part of any refinery process. These catalysts are used to convert high molecular weight and high boiling point hydrocarbons into more valuable products such as gasoline, olefin gases, and other petroleum products. The suppliers usually provide their customers with dedicated technical teams to better provide pre-sales, in-sales and after-sales services according to the specific requirements of each refinery, and perfectly combine raw materials, operating parameters, and catalysts to achieve maximum efficiency.

Heavy oil cracking catalysts help crack the hydrocarbon chains in distilled crude oil to produce transportation fuels such as gasoline and diesel fuel and other petroleum-based products. In addition to cracking, heavy oil cracking catalyst additives are used to reduce sulfur in gasoline, maximize propylene production in refinery units, and reduce nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides, and carbon monoxide emissions from refinery crackers.

As cracking produces sulfur and nitrogen compounds, the demand for additives is expected to increase in the near future. High demand for ultra-low sulfur diesel and aviation fuel will be the major driving factor driving the growth of the heavy oil cracking catalyst market. Furthermore, providing solutions to meet customized needs of customers through tailor-made products and services will boost the growth of this market.

Historical (2017-21) Vs. Forecast (2022-32) Market Outlook

Over the period of time covered by the study (2017-2021), heavy oil cracking catalyst is witnessed great interest from researchers and professionals of various disciplines for various high-value applications. The market for heavy oil cracking catalysts was recorded to grow at a phenomenal CAGR of 3.9% between 2017 and 2021, mostly due to the rising demand for heavy oil cracking catalysts in refinery and petrochemical industries.

Whereas, as per the latest survey conducted by FMI, the heavy oil cracking catalysts market is expected to progress at a CAGR of 4.3% between 2022 and 2032. The increasing use of heavy oil cracking catalysts such as alumina, silica, and zeolites in oil and petroleum industries owing to reduce nitrogen bases, associated heavy metals, and sulfur, is a key factor driving growth of the heavy oil cracking catalysts market. The demand for zeolite catalysts in heavy oil refining is expected to increase in the coming years because of the crystalline morphology of these catalysts which facilitates high surface area and low-cost processing. Therefore, zeolite catalysts are preferred over other catalysts for heavy oil refining.

Increasing demand for transportation fuel is driving the global heavy oil cracking catalysts market. Stringent fuel norms and standards, coupled with increasing consumption of petroleum derivatives are expected to boost the market growth. Government regulations and stringent emission standards for ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD) in developed markets are expected to proliferate heavy oil cracking catalyst demand in the petroleum refining industry. Moreover, increasing demand for high-octane fuel, especially in major cities such as the US, Japan, Germany, UK, and India, is likely to propel the global heavy oil cracking catalysts market growth. However, imbalance in raw material supply and demand and fluctuations in crude prices are expected to hamper the market during the forecast period.

Market Dynamics

Heavy Oil Cracking Catalyst is proven to be beneficial for the refinery and petrochemical industries

Recently, increasing crude oil quality deterioration has led to increasing demand for unconventional petroleum feedstocks such as heavy oil, bitumen, and residues. Therefore, the processing of such unconventional petroleum feedstocks is becoming increasingly essential. Processing of heavy oil feedstocks requires the development of new efficient technologies to increase yields of light distillates, suppress coke formation, and hydrogen saturation of liquid products. Increased adoption of efficient cracking catalysts such as alumina, silica, and zeolites for heavy oil refining is expected to meet these growing demands in the coming years.

Furthermore, the use of heavy oil cracking catalysts minimizes the capital and operating costs of the process. This is estimated to increase the demand for heavy oil cracking catalysts over the forecast period. New catalyst replacements that help reduce sulfur, sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, and carbon monoxide emissions and maximize propylene production from fuels are being rolled out on a commercial scale.
