Regional Analysis

APAC accounted for the largest market share in 2017 and expected to register the highest CAGR during the review period. The expanding chemicals industry in the region is the primary driver of the naphtha market in the region. Moreover, technological developments such as enhanced distillation processes and other production methods can encourage market growth. Developing countries of China, India, Indonesia, and Thailand are major consumers of gasoline and energy. This can offer plenty of growth opportunities for the global naphtha market and fuel the production capacity expansions of players in these countries.

North America is expected to be the second fastest-growing market for naphtha owing to rising gasoline consumption in the region. The key factors driving the growth are presence of prominent players and the resurgence of the automotive industry. Furthermore, the rising demand for naphtha in refineries is expected to fuel market growth during the forecast period.

The MEA naphtha market can expand owing to being home to various oil & gas producing countries. It is the largest naphtha exporting region and most of the exports cater to the surging demand in APAC. Algeria, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE dominate naphtha exports in this region. The expansion plans of oil-producing countries for production of naphtha can drive the market growth.
