Report Digest


Global Petroleum Liquid Feedstock Market: Overview

An important factor fuelling the growth of the global petroleum liquid feedstock market is the escalating demand for petrochemical feedstocks. Continuous expansion of the petrochemical industry, helped by growing applications of numerous end products, is likely to increasingly contribute toward the global petroleum liquid feedstock market during the forecast period, from 2018 to 2028.

The production of petrochemicals needs a huge amount of gas, crude oil, and its derivatives. For example, in 2018, nearly 90% of the chemicals utilized as petrochemical feedstock were made from gas and crude oil, mainly in the form of ethane or naphtha. As such, the requirement for primary feedstock chemicals such as ethane and naphtha is likely to rise through 2030, supporting the rapid strides of the market.

The global market for petroleum liquid feedstock has been segmented on the basis of the following parameters: type, application, and region.
