Strict Emission Guideline to Fuel Demand for Three-Way Oxidation-Reduction Catalytic Converter

The global automotive catalytic converter market is classified on the basis of material and type. Based on type, the market is segmented into diesel oxidation catalyst, two-way oxidation catalytic converter, and three-way oxidation-reduction catalytic converter. Among these types, three-way oxidation-reduction catalytic converter are largely used in gasoline engines. During the forecast period, this segment is likely to rise at 7.5% of CAGR. This is because this type of converter are capable of performing oxidation of hydrocarbons to water and carbon dioxide, conversion of nitrogen oxide to oxygen and nitrogen, and oxidation of carbon monoxide to carbon dioxide. Moreover, restrict emission guideline in various countries mandate the use of these converters in automobiles working on gasoline. Based on material, the global automotive catalytic converter market is segmented into platinum, rhodium, and palladium.
