Expansions and new product developments are the two most prevailing strategies to expand business in this market. For example, in December 2018, BASF invested in a new production facility for mobile emissions catalysts at its Pudong site in Shanghai, China. The new 30,000 m2 facility will house multiple manufacturing lines, providing a full range of emissions control technologies for heavy- and light-duty vehicle manufacturers. Construction is underway, with operations planned for the end of 2019. Additionally, in February 2016, Continental announced that it has started producing urea sensors for more efficient exhaust gas aftertreatment in diesel engines.

 Catalytic converter manufacturers need to focus on high performance catalysts that will offer harmless emission of exhaust gases. For instance, Tenneco presented its latest ride performance and clean air solutions that reduce emissions, contribute to improved fuel economy, and enhance vehicle performance at the 2017 North American Commercial Vehicle Show in Atlanta, Georgia. The company will present the newest member of the XNOx technology family, XNOx Liquid Urea SCR. In Europe, as of 2015, Euro VI emissions standards are followed. As per these standards, heavy-duty vehicles are required to reduce NOx exhaust emissions by 80% and particulate matter exhaust emissions by 50%. Similar upgrading is followed in the North American and Asia Oceania regions.

Faurecia adopted the strategies of expansion, new product development, partnership, and mergers & acquisitions to retain its leading position in the catalytic converter market. For instance, in 2018, Faurecia announced that it would establish a new plant in Yamato City, Kanagawa Prefecture. This will be Faurecia`s first stand-alone plant in Japan. However, the French parts supplier produces some components at its joint venture in Japan with a Japanese parts supplier. Faurecia will invest USD 12 million in this project.
