The photocatalyst market is evaluated based on the following segments: material type, application, and region. In addition, technological issues, including key events and the latest process developments, are discussed.

More specifically, the market analysis conducted by BCC Research for this report is divided into five sections. In the first section, an introduction to the topic and a historical review of photocatalysts is provided, including an outline of recent events. In this section, current and emerging applications for these materials are also identified and described by sector (i.e., automotive, construction, consumer products, environmental, energy, medical/dental, and mechanical/chemical).

The second section provides a technological review of photocatalyst materials, types, and their fabrication processes. This section concludes with an analysis of the most important technological developments since 2013, including examples of significant patents recently issued or applied for, as well as highlights of the most active research organizations operating in this field.

The third section entails a global market analysis of photocatalyst-based products. Global revenues (sales data in millions of dollars) for photocatalyst products are presented for each segment (material type, application, and region) with actual data for the years 2013 and 2014, and estimated revenues for 2015.

The analysis of past and current revenues for photocatalyst-based products is followed by a detailed presentation of market growth trends based on industry growth, technological trends, and regional trends. The third section concludes by providing projected revenues for photocatalyst products within each segment, together with forecast compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) for 2015 through 2020.

In the fourth section of the study, which covers global industry structure, the report offers a list of the leading manufacturers of photocatalysts and a description of their products. The analysis includes a description of the regional distribution of these suppliers and an evaluation of other key industry players. Detailed company profiles of the top players are also provided.

The fifth and final section includes an extensive U.S. patent analysis, with a summary of patents related to photocatalyst materials, fabrication methods, and applications. The patents examined in this study were issued during the period 2013 through 2015. Patent analysis is performed by region, country, assignee, patent category, application, and material type.
