This surge boosts the need for naphtha significantly. Additionally, the growing demand for biofuels, where naphtha serves as a blending component, further supports market growth. Emerging markets in Asia, especially China and India, are significant contributors to this demand due to their expanding industrial sectors and large-scale infrastructure developments requiring vast amounts of petrochemicals. Moreover, the gradual shift toward lighter feedstocks in refinery operations, coupled with high crude oil prices, also propels the demand for naphtha as refineries adjust their outputs to maximize the yield of lighter and more valuable products.
