The catalyst market by materials is dominated by chemical compounds, zeolites and metals. The chemical compound catalyst market is further segmented into polyolefins, adsorbents, chemical synthesis catalysts and others.
.
 .
The catalysts market by application is divided among the four major segments of environmental, chemical synthesis, petroleum refining and polymers. Of these the environmental segment is expected to be the leading market in the world and holds sway over chemical synthesis and the other two segments. The report outlines the market segmentation and provides a thorough analysis of revenues and volumes.
 .
The catalyst market can be classified into heterogeneous and homogeneous coatings based on their type. Heterogeneous catalysts are increasing in importance with uses in automotive, chemical, polymer, refinery and stationary industry and are found to be the major market segment globally in the catalysts market. Homogeneous catalysts are also growing in popularity owing to their unique features such as selectivity, high activity and varied application.
 .
Ever rising prices of raw materials is forcing refiners to go in for catalyst regeneration, which costs 30% to 50% less than fresh catalysts. Moreover, catalyst regeneration helps refiners to deal with the problem of land filling. The catalyst regeneration industry is dominated by petroleum refineries. Off-site and on-site are the two major technologies employed in catalyst regeneration with off-site technology dominating the market in 2011.
 .
The major geographical segments analyzed in this report are North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World (RoW). The strong economic growth in the region and growing healthcare awareness play a vital role in the emergence of Asia-Pacific as a large market for catalysts.

Reduction in automobile weight is a primary facet in this regard and the increased use of plastic is inevitable. ABS is used in a variety of automotive applications like trims, panels and coatings among others which is expected to increase its demand over the next six years.

China is expected to remain the largest regional market for ABS and is estimated to account for roughly 61% of the global demand by 2018. Low labor and operating costs in China, have forced a considerable number of multinational manufacturing companies to shift their manufacturing units to China. The country is also the world’s largest automobile manufacturing nation and consumes huge volumes of plastics, of which ABS is an essential part.
 .
However, ABS faces the threat of being substituted by other thermoplastics, particularly polypropylene and polystyrene. Both these plastics have excellent properties and are increasingly being used as substitutes to ABS in automobile and consumer goods applications. In addition, ABS comprises of monomers that are hazardous and have serious exposure impact on humans and the environment. These factors could act as major inhibitors for the market and could hamper the demand for ABS over the coming years.

Micro Irrigation System Market Trends and Global Forecasts By Transparency Market Research

The problem of water scarcity is rampant globally, creating the urgent need for water conservation. The use of micro irrigation systems is expected to result in increased crop yields in terms of volume and quality. The other important benefits of using micro irrigation systems include expansion in the area under irrigation, water conservation, optimum use of fertilizers and chemicals through water, and decreased labor costs among others.

The worldwide population is increasing at a rapid rate and it is imperative that food supply keeps pace with this increasing population. Agriculture industry is adversely affected by a significant decrease in the ground water levels; hence, there is a need to locate efficient ways of supplying water to meet agricultural needs and conserve water for future use. Micro irrigation systems are the best option to achieve this purpose. It can be broadly categorized as sprinkler irrigation and drip irrigation; center pivot irrigation, and lateral move irrigation are the other types of sprinkler irrigation that are currently gaining popularity. Drip irrigation is the most efficient method of irrigation, with efficiencies ranging between 90%-95%.

 .
The global micro irrigation systems market is one of the fastest growing segments of agriculture industry. The growth of this market is fueled by the government initiatives for adoption of micro irrigation systems in order to conserve water for future use. The growth of micro irrigation systems is particularly higher in Asia Pacific and Africa due to the increased problems of water scarcity, and farmer awareness towards increasing the crop yield with the help of micro irrigation systems. Out of the total 69 million hectares of cultivated area in India, only 5 million hectares is under drip and sprinkler irrigation. This represents strong potential for the growth of micro irrigation systems in this region.
 .
Crop protection expense is the second highest expense after fertilizers in overall farming expenses. These expenses can be considerably reduced with the techniques called fertigation and chemigation that are incorporated with micro irrigation systems. In areas other than scarce water problems, these methods have proved to be winning imperatives for the expansion of micro irrigation systems and are the most efficient and effective way of protecting the crop from biotic and abiotic factors.
 .
Currently, sprinkler irrigation system is the largest segment of the micro irrigation systems market. Sprinkler irrigation system is quite cost effective compared to the drip irrigation system, hence, mostly preferred by small farmers. The major components of sprinkler system include tubing/pipes, pumping unit, fitting/sprinkler head, and coupler.  Of all these components, pumping unit is the most costly component; however, it can be used for other applications also. Within the core sprinkler irrigation components, lateral pipes add to the overall cost of sprinkler systems. The components of drip irrigation are tubing, backflow preventers, valves, filters, and pressure regulators.
.
Per unit price of backflow preventers is the highest among all the components used in drip irrigation; however, within the complete system, tubing adds to the overall cost. Similarly, major components of center-pivot irrigation system include water emitters, pipelines, central towers, and system control panels. Among these components, the per unit price of central tower and system control panels is comparatively high; however, depending on the area to be irrigated, the total cost of pipelines may exceed the cost of tower and panels.
.
The global micro irrigation systems market is segmented into four major categories – sprinkler irrigation system, drip irrigation system, center-pivot irrigation system, and lateral move irrigation system. Drip irrigation is the most efficient segment among all types, as water is directly delivered to the plant root resulting in optimum water use. Center-pivot irrigation and lateral move irrigation are types of sprinkler irrigation systems; however, the method of irrigating the field sets them apart from sprinkler irrigation. The center-pivot irrigation systems market currently has a small revenue share; however, with robust growth, the segment is expected to double its revenue contribution by 2018.
 .
The major components of sprinkler irrigation system include tubing, pumping unit, fittings/sprinkler heads, and couplers. The pumping unit is the most costly component; however, depending on the size of the field, the number of lateral pipes used may increase the overall cost of the system. The tubing market is the fastest growing segment among sprinkler irrigation systems. The major components of drip irrigation system include tubing, backflow preventers, valves, filters, and pressure regulators.
