Not if the central government in Madrid can avoid it.

Central governments don't like provinces breaking away, especially rich provinces.

Catalonia is a very rich region, compared to other Spanish regions, but they "pay more than they can get",  if considering how the financial crisis has ruined Spain's economy and its ecological balance. https://www.thelocal.es/20150721/rich-and-poor-divide-of-spanish-regions-reveal

Dan I have been kinda following this one; I wish Catalonians could make their own choice, but it looks doubtful. Spain seems quite repressive here.

And apparently, there are many Catalonians who DO wish to stay with Spain, but in that election those are the voters who stayed home, only the secessionists came out to vote.

I do not think Spain will allow it. There is too much to lose.  They will try to find a way to keep the natives happy and make them forget about independence.

Catalonia will become independent when Spain and UN recognize independence. Many UN members have problems with their regions, provinces, and states.
