Naphtha is a liquid hydrocarbon mixture that is extremely flammable and volatile. Naphtha is a product of specific distillation ranges derived from coal tar or petroleum. Coal tar naphtha’s are toxic and contain large proportions of aromatic compounds. And petroleum naphtha’s indulge between kerosene and gasoline grades. Naphtha comes off early in the distillation and refining process as it is a light distillate. Naphtha’s are primarily used as solvents & paint thinners, metal cleaner, and as feedstock for petroleum and plastic industries. Naphtha is also used in the blending of gasoline.
Figure 1: Global Naphtha Market by Value 2015 - 2023
The global Naphtha market was sized over USD XX billion in 2015. The global Naphtha market is projected to grow with a CAGR of x.xx% during 2017-2023 and reach USD XX billion by 2023. Increasing demand of gasoline globally is the prime factor driving the growth of naphtha market. Furthermore, growing demand for naphtha as a feedstock in petrochemical industry will also drive the global naphtha market over the forecast period. Moreover, increasing demand of petrochemicals, primarily propylene and ethylene for the production of plastic will in turn drive the global naphtha market over the forecast period. However, volatility in crude oil prices and stringent government regulations associated with the manufacturing of naphtha considering its toxicity will remain the major restraining factor of global naphtha market. Moreover, availability of other cheaper alternatives such as LPG and shale gas will also restrain the growth of global naphtha market over the forecast period. Hence, recent technological developments such as advance furnace materials and advanced distillation process as well as growing focus on developing economies will bring more opportunities to the global naphtha market over the forecast period.
The report segments the naphtha market by application and by region. Naphtha market segmentation based on application includes chemicals, energy/fuels and others. Moreover, chemical industry segment dominates the global naphtha market due to increasing usage in steam cracking process.
Geographic Coverage and Analysis:

Figure 2: Global Naphtha Market by Region
Asia Pacific is the largest market for naphtha accounted for over 60% of the total volume share. Furthermore, Asia Pacific is likely to continue its dominance in the global naphtha market due to growing chemical industry and expanding end use industries such as construction, automotive and plastic in developing economies like India, Taiwan and South Korea. Asia Pacific is anticipated to grow at a highest CAGR rate over the forecast period due to growing global demand of naphtha. North America is the second largest market for naphtha following the Asia Pacific and is likely to witness moderate growth due to higher prices of naphtha and shifting trends towards availability of other cheaper alternatives. Furthermore, Europe is also likely to witness slow growth rate sue to higher crude oil prices primarily required for the distillation of naphtha. However, Latin America naphtha market will foresee a positive growth due to rising end use industries especially in Brazil and Mexico. Growing chemical industries in RoW especially in Middle East due to its geographical advantage and presence of oil refineries will bring more opportunities to the RoW naphtha market over the forecast period.
