Europe naphtha consumption market stood at 147.14 million metric tons in 2016, and is projected to grow at a negative CAGR of over 0.40%, in volume terms, to reach 141.36 million metric tons by 2026. The reason behind the negative CAGR can be attributed to the closure of naphtha based crackers as they have become uneconomical owing to price volatility associated with naphtha and easy availability of cheaper alternative feedstock i.e. natural gas. New cracker capacities are being added that use natural gas as feedstock and are very price competitive in comparison to petrochemicals derived from naphtha cracking. The shale gas boom in the United States has altered economics of global petrochemical business making them competitive to prices offered by Middle East and Africa. Prominent European players in petrochemical business are adding gas based cracker capacities with the US supplying ethane for feeding their expanding capacities.
