This market research report presents a detailed segmentation of the global naphtha market by application (gasoline blending, petrochemical feedstock, and others) and geography (the Americas, APAC, Europe, and MEA). The leading vendors in the market include BP, Dow Chemicals, Chevron, ExxonMobil, OAO Novatek, Total, SABIC, Shell Chemicals, MRPL, and Sinopec.

Overview of the global naphtha market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global naphtha market to grow at a CAGR of more than 4% by 2020.  The rise in global gasoline demand is primarily driving the naphtha market. One of the most important use of naphtha is in the blending of gasoline. The olefin rich naphtha obtained through various reforming processes is used for blending gasoline-grade fuel which is the primary support of the energy demand worldwide. Another important growth driver for the naphtha market is the huge demand for petrochemicals, primarily ethylene and propylene for production of plastics in the developing economies.

One of the latest trends in the market is the growing focus on the Asian economies. APAC is home to some of the major consumers of naphtha such as South Korea, Taiwan, and Japan that have based a significant portion of their infrastructure growth on naphtha. With the increased local consumption of naphtha, the demand will have to be satisfied with the importation of naphtha from the Middle East or the US. This will accelerate the production of naphtha in the US and maintain a balance with the growing local consumption and subsequent global production of naphtha.

Segmentation by application and analysis of the naphtha market

  • Gasoline Blending
  • Petrochemical feedstock

The petrochemical feedstock segment will dominate the market by 2020, and is expected to occupy 52% of the total market share. Naphtha is the primary feedstock for the manufacture of petrochemicals especially polyethylene and polypropylene. Naphtha has been widely recognized as a feedstock for the plastics production because one of the major components of the naphtha cuts is olefin rich. Owing to the growing demand for plastics, this segment will retain its dominance in the coming years, especially in the APAC region.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the naphtha market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • Europe
  • MEA

During 2015, APAC dominated the market and accounted for around 61% of the total market share. Much of this region’s growth can be attributed to the developing economies such as India, China, and Korea, which have a massive consumption of petrochemicals especially plastics. Many petrochemical plants, mostly based on naphtha, are expected to come online in the next few years, thereby propelling the growth of the market in this region.

 Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market primarily comprises those companies that have crude refining capacity. It is primarily dominated by the integrated oil and gas companies, who have complete control over the entire supply chain. This helps them to manipulate the demand-supply dynamics of naphtha as per their profit interests. Moreover, as the entire market share is controlled by big oil companies or chemical companies, the entry of new players will be minimal in the market during the forecast period.

Key vendors in the market are -

  • BP
  • Dow Chemicals
  • Chevron
  • ExxonMobil
  • OAO Novatek
  • Total
  • Shell Chemicals
  •  MRPL
  • Sinopec

Other prominent vendors in the naphtha market are Indian Oil Corporation, Lotte Chemical Corporation, Mitsubishi Chemical, Sasol, and Vitol.
