Naphthalene Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Demand & Supply, End-User Industries, Distribution Channel, Regional Demand, 2015-2030

Format: Online | Last Updated: Aug 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] Naphthalene demand stood at 321.13 Million Tonnes in 2020 and is forecast to reach 442.76 Million Tonnes by 2030, growing at a healthy CAGR of 3.35% until 2030. Naphthalene is a white, crystalline, aromatic, volatile solid which is obtained from either coal tar or petroleum distillation. It is used in the manufacturing of several chemicals including phthalic anhydride, Naphthalene sulfonates, low volatility solvents, moth repellent, and pesticides. Naphthalene is in high demand from the construction industry and is majorly used to make chemicals and agrochemicals. Growing consumption of Naphthalene sulfonate formaldehyde in construction as plasticizer of various concrete admixtures coupled with the surging demand for other derivatives including phthalic anhydride, low volatility solvents, etc. is expected to drive the demand for Naphthalene during the forecast period. Additionally, the use of Naphthalene derivatives in textile dyeing is also going to push the demand for Naphthalene during the forecast period. Various government regulations regarding the volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions are expected to hamper the demand growth during the forecast period. Various end-user industries for Naphthalene are agriculture, building and construction, textile, chemical, polymer, pharmaceutical, etc.
In 2020, the spread of COVID-19 in major global economies caused nationwide lockdowns which had an impact on several industries. Manufacturing units were temporarily shut down and disruption in the supply chain was observed. The construction sector is among the most affected industries during the pandemic that put an adverse impact on the demand for Naphthalene for the first half of 2020. However, the agriculture sector was minimally affected in the pandemic and a constant demand for Naphthalene was witnessed from the agriculture sector. Additionally in the latter half of 2020, after the resumption of the industrial activities and relaxation in lockdown, a speedy recovery was observed in the demand for Naphthalene from various end use industries. Growth in Construction, Agriculture, Chemicals, and Pharma sectors is expected to boost its market growth in the forecast period.
Region-wise, the Asia-pacific region holds the major share of demand for Naphthalene globally due to the increasing demand from end-use industries such as construction and agriculture. The surging population and rise in per capita income in emerging economies like India and China coupled with the growing number of products using Naphthalene derivatives are the contributing factors influencing the growth of the Naphthalene market in the Asia Pacific region.
