Demand for renewable naphtha also will surge owing to growing fuel blending practices to comply with new regulations regarding fuel compositions. For instance, the Indonesian Government has increased the blending capacity of biodiesel from 10% to 15%.

Favored by such developments, sales of renewable naphtha are expected to register a year-over-year growth of 8.7% between 2020 and 2021.

As per FMI, light naphtha is projected to remain the most preferred product type, accounting for nearly 92.7% of the sales in the global market. Increased use due to its light weight and easy blending characteristics across the industries such as hydrogen, petroleum, and plastic is propelling the growth in the segment.

“The market will gain traction as stringent regulations are imposed on the use of synthetic plastics and rising carbon emission due to use of petrol and diesel. Surging adoption of advanced technologies such as NExBTL is expected to propel the demand for renewable naphtha over the coming years,” says the FMI analyst.
