Catalysis is used to increase the rate of a chemical reaction by adding a substance called as a catalyst. It is not consumed in the catalysed reaction it can also be used repeatedly. Because of this reaction very small amounts of catalyst are required to alter the reaction rate.  Catalysis plays a major role in giving the society with fine chemicals, fuels, pharmaceuticals.  It also helps the human kind in protecting  environment. Now a days, in present scenario chemical industries mainly depends on catalysis. More than 80% of the chemical reactions are catalytic processes which mainly produces some of the materials like plastics, synthetic rubbers, fabrics, cosmetics etc.  It involves catalytic processes, production of clean energy from the renewable energy sources, such as hydrogen for fuel cells and transportation fuels from non-edible biomass which are catalyst dependent processes. Catalysts are used in the production of polymers including adhesives, coatings, foams, textile and industrial fibres.

It consist of two types actual and potential catalysis which are part of Biocatalysis and Biotransformation that includes  whole cells or isolated components therefore natural and modified enzymes and catalytic antibodies for the synthesis of interconversion or degradation of chemical species.  It is the chemical modification that is occurred by the influence of an organism or by the presence of enzymes in the biological system which is known as Biotransformation. The process of transformation of chemicals that are used in biological catalysts like enzymes, antibodies, cell constituents are called as Biocatalysis.The Enzymatic reactions and biotransformations  are catalyzed by fungal enzymes are  used in industry, agriculture, food technology, and medicine.

Catalysis plays an important role in the chemical industry and industrial research. For Different catalysts are in the constant development to fulfill the economic, political and environmental demands. While using a catalyst, it is possible to replace a polluting chemical reaction with a more environmental friendly alternative. Today and for the future, this may take a vital role in the chemical industry. In addition, to this it’s important for a company/researcher to pay attention to the market development. If a catalyst is not continually improved by the company, then another company might take progress in research on that particular catalyst and can gain market share value. A new and improved catalyst can be a huge advantage for a competitive manufacturing cost for a company. That it’s extremely expensive for a company to shut down the plant because of an error in the catalyst, so that the correct selection of a catalyst or a new improvement can be key to industrial success.
