The global naphtha market reached a volume of 313.1 Million Tons in 2020. Naphtha refers to a highly versatile hydrocarbon mixture which is colorless, flammable and extremely volatile in nature. It is produced by the distillation of organic substances including coal tar, petroleum, wood and shale. Naphtha is known by various names such as wood naphtha, petroleum spirits, coal tar naphtha, shellite and white gas, depending on its composition or source. There are two compositions of naphtha, based on the refinery process and hydrocarbon structure, namely, light (paraffinic) and heavy naphtha. Light naphtha plays a vital role in petrochemical steam crackers, whereas, heavy naphtha is commonly used in refinery catalytic reformers in order to enhance the performance of fuels. Apart from this, naphtha finds numerous applications in the manufacturing of cleaning fluids, fuel for portable stoves, gasoline, paints, etc. Looking forward, the analyst expects the global naphtha market to exhibit steady growth during the next five years.

Global Naphtha Market Drivers:
Olefin-rich naphtha is majorly employed as a feedstock for economic high-octane fuel production. Proliferating demand for cost-effective fuel owing to rapid urbanization and growing global population has increased the consumption of naphtha in both the developing and developed economies.

In the petrochemical industry, naphtha is used for manufacturing aromatics and olefins like benzene, butadiene, ethylene, toluene and propylene. Continuous growth in the industry has been proactive in maintaining the growth of the naphtha market.
Naphtha-derived components are utilized in the formulation of a wide range of plastics, industrial chemicals and synthetic fiber precursors. Rising usage of these end-products across the globe has helped in creating an attractive market for naphtha.

Progress in technology has led to the emergence of advanced furnace materials and enhanced distillation processes. This coupled with the expanding chemical industry, particularly in the Asia Pacific region, is further boosting the consumption of naphtha.

Breakup by Application:
The global naphtha market has been divided on the basis of application into petrochemical feedstock, gasoline blending and others. Amongst these, petrochemical feedstock dominates the market, holding the majority of the total market share.
