Global naphtha market is majorly dominated by the Asia Pacific market, which is being driven by the rapidly emerging economies within the region. The Middle East region is one of the significant producers of the naphtha, which is the result of its favourable geographical location.

Out of the two varieties of naphtha, the production of heavy naphtha remains twice the production of its light variety, thus occupying most of the market.

The expanding petrochemical industry and the rising global demand for petrochemical products is further aiding the global naphtha market. Most of the petrochemicals are produced from naphtha, though light naphtha is generally used in petrochemical steam crackers.
