Global Refinery Catalyst Procurement Market Intelligence Report 2017 - Research and Markets

Share:

The "Global
Refinery Catalyst - Procurement Market Intelligence Report"

report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

Global Refinery Catalyst Market, provides up-to-date information about
market shifts and potential risks, as well as in-depth knowledge of
products and services, which can help in planning and in executing
category management activities. It focuses on the cost-saving aspects of
procurement and on providing insights that can lead to optimization of
category spend.

One of the emerging trends in the market is the increased usage of
zeolites in refinery processes. Zeolites have become the building blocks
of the petrochemical industry and are used to maximize the yield of
gasoline and other transportation fuels such as diesel or jet fuel. The
widespread adoption of zeolites can be attributed to high
thermo-stability, limited or no corrosion, and reduced wastage and fewer
disposal problems. As a result, zeolites are being increasingly adopted
by refineries.

One of the procurement best practices for buyers is to engage with
suppliers that can assist in the real-time evaluation of the
effectiveness of catalysts. They should look for suppliers that can
provide benchmarking tools that can help them routinely evaluate their
refinery unit's data with respect to the output and effectiveness of
refinery catalysts.

According to the report, one of the key growth contributors for the
global refinery catalyst market is the stringent regulations promoting
adoption of ultra-low sulfur marine fuel. This ordinance was passed to
reduce air pollution caused due to emissions of sulfur and nitrogen
oxides from burning of marine fuel. This has resulted in refineries
investing in setting up of new refinery units and upgrading existing
refineries.

Further, the report states that major procurement challenge experienced
by the buyers is the difficulty in deciding between low-cost country and
best-cost country sourcing. Procurement managers face a challenge in
terms of choosing between low-cost country sourcing and best-cost
country sourcing.
