Region : Global | Report ID: FBI101316 | Status : Ongoing



Naphtha is flammable, colorless, and a volatile hydrocarbon generally obtained from the petroleum refineries through fractional distillation of crude oil or boiling coal tar. Naphtha is obtained at the temperature ranges between 30o C and 200o C with hydrocarbons containing 5 to 12 carbon atoms.

Naphtha is generally used as a solvent, feedstock or diluent for different end uses. The naphtha obtained from other sources such as coal tar and shales is known by different names. The naphtha obtained by distillation of coal tar is known as coal-tar naphtha while the naphtha obtained from distillation of oil produced in the bituminous shales is known as shale naphtha.

By type, the naphtha market is bifurcated as a heavy, and light naphtha. The light naphtha is composed of pentane and slightly heavier materials and obtained from distillation of crude oil at a temperature of around 30-90oC. The heavy naphtha is derived from the atmospheric distillation unit at a temperature of around 90-200oC and is composed of hydrocarbons of 7-9 carbon atoms.

By end-use, the naphtha market is segmented on the basis of the application of naphtha as a feedstock in manufacturing chemicals, fertilizers, gasoline, and petrochemicals among others. The petrochemicals and chemical segments are expected to dominate the global naphtha market by end-use owing to the high demand for naphtha as a feedstock for manufacturing different chemicals and petrochemicals.

Naphtha is a widely used product as a solvent, diluent, or feedstock in different processes. Naphtha is a product from the distillation of crude oil and countries that are not involved in the exploration and production of crude oil import products like naphtha from the oil-producing countries.

Some countries such as India have recently reduced the customs duty on naphtha which is likely to aid in the growth of the naphtha market in the coming years. Naphtha has high demand in the chemical and petrochemical industries. The increase in the demand for chemical and petrochemical products is expected to boost the growth of chemical and petrochemical industries. Owing to this, the naphtha market is expected to grow at a healthy rate in the near future.

Naphtha is a carcinogenic, flammable, and irritates the skin on exposure. Owing to these qualities, the storage, and transport of naphtha has to be in an isolated environment which adds in the cost of transportation and storage. This non-economic cost is expected to have a negative impact on the growth of the naphtha market in the coming years.
