South America Naphtha Demand Supply Analysis, By End Use (Gasoline Blending, Reforming, Steam Cracking and Others), Forecast & Opportunities, 2011 – 2026

South America naphtha consumption market is projected to witness slow growth till 2026.

The slowdown in Brazil’s economy has taken a toll on naphtha consumption in the region. However, the country is anticipated to continue dominating demand for naphtha in the region. Brazil relies on naphtha imports to fuel its domestic petrochemical industry. Rising demand for naphtha in Venezuela can be attributed to growing use of naphtha as a blending stock for their heavy crude to improve its API gravity before it can be exported. Demand for naphtha in the region is slated to be positive in the coming years as well.
