The Global Naphtha Market Stood Around 180 Million Tonnes in 2021 and is Expected to Grow at a Steady CAGR of 4.12% During the Forecast Period Until 2035

The global Naphtha market stood around 180 million tonnes in 2021 and is expected to grow at a steady CAGR of 4.12% during the forecast period until 2035. The Assiut oil refinery in Egypt is under an extension and modernization to meet the increasing demand for petroleum products in Upper Egypt. The anticipated cost of the refinery improvement is $2.5 billion. This expansion includes a new naphtha complex along with other complexes.

Naphtha is a mixture of hydrocarbon molecules that consists of between 5 and 10 carbon atoms. It is a volatile, colorless, and flammable liquid that does not dissolve in water. It is usually produced from natural gas condensates, petroleum distillates, and the distillation of coal tar and peat. One of the major sources of Naphtha is crude oil which is widely used as a precursor to gasoline, butane, and other liquid fuels.

The industrial Type of Naphtha includes it as a raw material to produce plastics like polyethylene and polypropylene. It is extensively used as solvents for paints, dry-cleaning, cutback asphalts, rubbers, industrial extraction processes, and others. Naphtha has the ability to burn cleanly, which makes it an ideal chemical to use in heating units, power stoves, blowtorches, and cigarette lighters. In the Naphtha cracking process, ingredients like aromatics and olefins are used. Among these, aromatics are highly used in the production of edible fats whereas, olefins are used for making chemical intermediates, synthetic rubbers, plastics, etc., rising demand for aromatics and olefins by the food & beverage and chemical industry is expected to drive the market in the next few years. Naphtha is one of the most important feedstock chemicals in the petrochemical industry as it is used in the production of benzene, ethylene, butadiene, toluene, propylene, and xylene, which are further used to make products like synthetic fiber, synthetic resins, synthetic rubber, dyes, medicine, and others. Throughout the projection period, the petrochemical industry is anticipated to exhibit significant increase in the demand of Naphtha and reach nearly 300 million tonnes in the forecast period of 2035.

Based on region, Asia Pacific is the leading consumer of Naphtha all across the globe. In 2021, the highest demand was accounted by Asia Pacific region with a market share of about 60%. The region is anticipated to maintain its dominance over the other regions in the forecast period. Its usage in upstream sectors such as Crude blending and Steam cracking is anticipated to propel the demand in countries like India, China, and Japan in the upcoming years. The major producers of Naphtha are located in the North American region. Moreover, Exxon Mobil Corporation is the largest producer of Naphtha on the global level.

Based on type, the global Naphtha market is divided into Light Naphtha and Heavy Naphtha. The Light Naphtha is dominating the market. Light naphtha is used as a petrochemical feedstock in steam crackers to create ethylene, which is then used to manufacture plastics.

Based on the end-user industry, the global Naphtha market is segmented into Gasoline Blending, Steam Cracking, Naphtha Reforming, and others. Among these, Gasoline Blending is dominating as a consumer, with a market share of more than 60% of the total demand in 2021. Moreover, it is expected that the Naphtha Reforming industry will experience a surge in the forecast period. Due to rapid urbanization and industrialization in emerging as well as industrialized economies, the demand for cost-effective fuel is increasing, which is likely to accelerate the demand for Naphtha, further propelling the market in upcoming years.

Significant players in the production of Global Naphtha market are Exxon Mobil Corporation, Reliance Indusries Limited, Nippon Oil Corporation, Phillips 66 Company, Indian Oil Corporation Limited, Marathon Petroleum Corporation, Flint Hills Resources, Chevron Corporation, Idemitsu Kosan Co., Ltd, Nayara Energy Limited, GS Caltex Corporation, BP p.l.c., Monroe Energy LLC, and VPR Energy,
