The demand for catalyst handling services in emerging economies, such as APAC, MEA, and South America, is increasing owing to the growth in industrial activities. Increasing consumption of petrochemical products is also driving the market. Increasing demand for electric vehicles and reduction in capex by oil & gas companies are major restraining factors for the market. However, incorporation of new technologies such as robotics and automation in catalyst handling along with increasing demand for biofuels are opportunities for the market. On the other hand, decreasing demand for oil due to Covid-19 is a major challenge for the catalyst handling services market.

Based on service type, the catalyst loading/unloading segment is estimated to lead the overall catalyst handling services market in 2020.
Catalyst unloading is a process where the spent catalysts are unloaded through proper operating procedures such as checking hot spots, build up coke formation, and checking for contamination. Catalyst loading is the process of transferring the catalyst from ground level to inside the reactor. The imminent necessity of this service type in reactor cleaning and catalyst based operations is driving the market growth.

Based on end-use industry, petroleum refining is estimated to be the largest market in the overall catalyst handling services market in 2020.
Petroleum refining is the largest market owing to the increasing demand for polymer based materials, liquid fuels and others in sectors such as automotive, construction, food & beverage, aerospace, and so on. Also, the growing demand for catalyst handling services to ensure the highest levels of safety and efficiency while charging and discharging reactors and for using specific techniques to handle pyrophoric catalysts are responsible for high market numbers.

COVID-19 impact on Global Catalyst handling services Market

The catalyst handling services are used mainly in the oil & gas and chemical sectors. COVID-19 has severely impacted this industry.

- Catalyst handling services are used in end-use industries such as petroleum refining, chemicals & fertilizers, petrochemical, and other heavy industrial processing industries. Due to the ongoing pandemic, industrial production has been severely affected throughout the world. Workforce shortage, logistical restrictions, material unavailability, and other restrictions have drastically slowed the growth of the industry.

- COVID-19 has led the industrial and manufacturing sectors into an unknown operating environment globally. Government restrictions on the number of people that can gather at one place have severely impacted operations in these sectors. The global economy is contracting due to the pandemic. The pandemic has also reduced global demand for oil by about 29 million barrels a day. The impact of COVID-19 on all industries will continue till the pandemic lasts. Factors such as loss in investments, liquidity shortage, labour shortage, supply chain constraints, and the overall global economic uncertainty are all severely affecting the industrial sector.

- In last few months, many countries, including India, China, and the US, have opened the economy, and industrial activities have resumed but with limited workforce and materials. Chemical, fertilizers, and petrochemical manufacturers have also experienced a negative impact of COVID-19 on sales volume in the first and second quarters of 2020. Major players in the market are mitigating the risk through a strong focus on the reduction of expenses, local management, and new market opportunities to recover in a post pandemic scenario.
