Market Synopsis

Global Organic Catalyst Market was valued around USD 550 million in 2018, registering a CAGR of over 4.8% during the forecast period. The shift of Individuals towards the principle of green chemistry is expected to boost the global organic catalyst market during the review period.

Catalyst is a substance that increases the speed of a chemical reaction without getting consumed in it. Organic catalyst are the compounds that predominately consist of organic molecules of C, H, O, N, S and P to accelerate the rate of a chemical reaction. Organic catalyst is also known as organocatalyst and the process of increasing the rate of a chemical reaction is referred as organocatalysis. Owing to the advantages such as lack of sensitivity to oxygen and moisture, easy reaction manipulation, low toxicity, low cost and their ready availability, Organic catalyst are preferred in the pharmaceutical and agricultural sector as the materials of choice over other transition metal catalyst. Furthermore, organocatalyst are compatible with several functional group and does not require anhydrous condition, thus reducing the number of reaction steps and the cost of synthesis. Metal organic catalyst consist metal linked to the organic catalyst and since these metals can causing health issues if used for medicinal purposes, thereby manufacturers are using organic chemical catalyst for biological catalysis and moving towards adopting the principles of green chemistry.

Organic catalyst is expected to have an opportunistic market during the forecast period. Due to the use of organocatalysis in green chemistry to innovate technologies that reduce the usage of hazardous substance. Moreover, this branch of science also helps to reduce the environmental impacts as it prevents formation of metallic waste by avoiding the traces of metals in the products owing to which the use of organocatalyst is increasing in medicinal applications.

The organocatalyst have a high catalyst loading which can decreases the enantiomeric excess (ee) of the product thereby, making it less chiral and decreases its use for aldol and proline reactions.
