2016-2020 Renewable Naphtha Market Outlook Compared to 2021-2031 Forecast

Demand for renewable naphtha grew at a moderate 3.6% CAGR between 2016 and 2020. Sales prospects were dampened due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, steady recovery is on cards, as the market is forecast to experience year-over-year growth by 8.7% in 2020-2021.

In recent years, high demand for plastics has been observed due to increasing adoption of plastics in packaging materials, home decor, bespoke articles, and automotive. Besides this, rising fuel blending practices to comply with changing fuel composition related mandates are boosting the consumption of renewable naphtha.

Renewable naphtha market is anticipated to witness a considerable growth rate in the coming years. The global population is been estimated to be pegged at about 7.8 billion which is expected to reach about 9.7 billion by 2050 end. This substantial growth in the population will require more automobiles, plastic products, packaging films, which is expected to boost the demand for renewable naphtha.

Consumption of renewable naphtha in the production of bio plastics & hydrogen is expected to propel market growth. Rising concerns regarding harmful greenhouse emissions is encouraging companies to manufacture bio-based plastics. Countries such as Argentina, Brazil and Indonesia where feedstock is available in abundance, are aiming to increase the renewable naphtha blending to utilize stockpiles of feedstock.

How is Growing Demand for Fuel-Efficient Vehicles Impacting Sales of Renewable Naphtha?

Demand for renewable naphtha is driven by increasing production & fleet of vehicles globally. Global production of automobiles is growing at a steady pace after the economic slowdown encountered due to COVID-19.

Conventional fuels such as petrol & diesel used in vehicles are derived from crude oil. Consumption of these fuels results in emission of harmful gases such as NOx, SOx, CO2, and other greenhouse gases which are hazardous for the environment & ecosystem. Renewable naphtha blended fuel is a great substitute for fossil fuels and it emits less harmful gases as compared to conventional fossil fuel.

Market entrants in emerging countries have a strong opportunity to benefit from increasing demand for renewable naphtha from the automotive industry. Rising crude oil prices have led to higher fuel price. To deal with these prices, several countries have increased blending of biofuels in gasoline and diesels.
