The global naphthenic acid market size reached US$ 68.6 Million in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 79.5 Million by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 2.38% during 2023-2028.
Naphthenic Acid (CnH2n-z O2) refers to a light-yellowish to dark-colored, insoluble complex compound that is identified as the mixture of predominant carboxylic and a small amount of acyclic acids present in crude oil or sand bitumen. It is obtained from the caustic extraction of petroleum distillation procedure wherein the product is removed from refinery streams through caustic washing. Naphthenic acid can act as a surfactant, causing emulsion formulation and stabilization, and it can necessitate high levels of treatment to meet product specifications. Consequently, naphthenic acid finds extensive applications in metal synthesis, paint dryers, detergents, solvents, organic peroxides, corrosion inhibitors, metal naphthenates, ink driers, and rubber reclaiming. At present, it is commercially available in refined and high-quality product types, which are used in diverse industries based on requirements.
Naphthenic Acid Market Trends:
The increasing need to protect various wood products, such as fences, poles, furniture, and other timber surfaces, has facilitated the widespread adoption of naphthenic acid as a preservative across the residential and commercial sectors, which is primarily driving the market growth. Naphthenic acid is used with copper salts, zinc naphthenate, and naphthenic acid to protect cellulosic materials from decay and extreme temperatures or humidity. In line with this, the rising usage of naphthenic acid as fuel additives in jet engines and locomotives to increase engine life is acting as another growth-inducing factor. It is further influenced by the extensive product usage in the aerospace industry as an anti-corrosive agent in the production of jet fuels. Additionally, naphthenic acid finds applications in lubricants, adhesives, sealants, coatings, pesticides, emulsifier intermediates, and anti-scaling agents, which, in turn, is supporting the market growth. Apart from this, the emergence of naphthenic acid as an ideal alternative to phosphate ester in industrial coatings, owing to its anti-scaling properties and strategic collaborations among key players, are creating a positive outlook for the market.
