Rising Emission Control Regulations Implemented by the Government to Boost Market Growth

The government has implemented strict regulations for pollutants emitted into the air, reducing air pollution's impact on the environment and human health. By having these regulations in place, governments are ensuring that emissions from vehicles are as low as possible, reducing the number of pollutants in the air. For instance, Euro 6 is the latest emission regulation set by the European Union Directive for reducing harmful gases such as nitrogen oxide (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO), and hydrocarbons from vehicle exhaust systems. Similarly, the SCR catalyst is also an emission control device specially designed for vehicles that can convert toxic and harmful gases from the engine into less toxic pollutants as a means of meeting the government’s emission standards. It works by oxidizing the carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons found in a vehicle’s exhaust gases and converting them into carbon dioxide and water vapor. This process helps reduce the amount of pollution released into the atmosphere. Therefore, stringent government regulations governing emission control encourage the development of automotive selective catalytic reduction technology, which is expected to fuel market growth over the forecast period.

Automotive Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) Market: Regional Overview

The market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa region. 

Existence of a Wide Automobile Network to Drive Growth in the Asia Pacific Region

The automotive selective catalytic reduction (SCR) market in the Asia Pacific region is estimated to garner the largest revenue by the end of 2033, backed by the presence of a strong vehicle network in the region, and the growing number of manufacturing units. It was observed that the Indian automobile industry contributed almost 6.3% to the GDP of the country and 36% to the manufacturing GDP in the financial year 2022 and produced around 19 million vehicles. Also, the number of automobiles owned by Chinese people has grown by over 20 million annually, reaching 315 million by the end of November 2022. Additionally, the rise in consumer demand for more efficient and eco-friendly vehicles is driving manufacturers to invest in SCR technology. The region's robust vehicle network and manufacturing capabilities provide a favorable environment for the growth of the SCR market. Furthermore, increased public awareness of vehicle emissions, along with rapid economic development in Asia, especially in India, China, and Vietnam, as well as stringent laws governing vehicular emissions, is projected to drive regional market growth over the forecast period. For instance, a new regulation called China 6 is being introduced as part of the government's effort to reduce emissions from new cars and, at the same time, improve the fuel efficiency of these vehicles.

SCR System Technological Advancement to Drive Growth in Europe

The automotive selective catalytic reduction (SCR) market in Europe is estimated to garner the highest CAGR by the end of 2033, owing to the increasing strictness and improved regulations governing emissions, as well as recent advancements in SCR technology. The latest advancements in SCR technology include the use of advanced sensors and control systems to reduce emissions more efficiently and effectively. These systems use algorithms to monitor the exhaust gases and adjust the amount of SCR catalyst used to ensure that the emission levels remain within the legal limits. Furthermore, the growing utilization of light commercial vehicles in the region owing to the increasing demand for last-mile delivery services has created a need for efficient transportation solutions in the region. This has been further accelerated by the growth of e-commerce, which has increased the demand for fast and efficient delivery services. For instance, a total of 1,880,500 commercial vehicles have been registered in the European Union so far in 2021, representing an increase of 10% from the previous year.

Automotive Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), Segmentation by Type

  • Copper Zeolite
  • Iron Zeolite
  • Others

The copper zeolite segment in automotive selective catalytic reduction (SCR) market is anticipated to hold the largest revenue by the end of 2033, backed by its exceptional ability to perform at extremely high temperatures. It has been found that copper zeolites have high thermal stability and are capable of operating at extreme temperatures ranging from 180 degrees to nearly 600 degrees Celsius. Copper-zeolite SCR technology is used to reduce the emission of nitrogen oxides from automobiles. The technology works by using a copper zeolite catalyst to convert the nitrogen oxides in the exhaust gases into harmless nitrogen and water vapor. Additionally, copper zeolite is also corrosion resistant, which makes it ideal for use in the automotive sector as it is exposed to harsh temperatures and environments. This makes copper zeolite a more reliable and cost-effective option compared to other materials, which is expected to augment segment growth over the forecast period.
