Pentane Market Outlook - 2021–2030

The global pentane market size was valued at $105.7 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $159.8 million by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 4.3% from 2021 to 2030.

 

Pentane is an organic compound having chemical formula of C5H12, which consists of five carbon atoms that are linked together to form a single bond. It is a hydrocarbon, which possesses gasoline-like odor and is burnt as fuel. Pentane has several industrial uses, including its use to create blowing agent to further form a polystyrene.

Growth of global pentane market is driven by increase in demand for pentane from various end-user industries, low cost of pentane, and its beneficial chemical properties, including higher strength compared to other alkanes and superior volatility. Moreover, increase in usage of pentane in fuel blending and formulation is expected to create opportunities for the end-user industries to generate more polystyrene to make insulation materials. However, the implementation of stringent regulations toward usage of pentane hampers the global pentane market.

The global pentane market is segmented on the basis of type, application, and region. Depending on type, it is classified into n-pentane, isopentane, and neopentane. By application, it is segregated into blowing agent, electronic cleansing, chemical solvent, and others. Region-wise, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. Comprehensive competitive analysis and profiles of major market players, such as Royal Dutch Shell PLC., Phillips 66 Company, ExxonMobil Corporation, TOP Solvent Co., Ltd., Haltermann Carless UK Ltd., INEOS AG, LG Chem Ltd., SK Innovation Co., Ltd., Yeochun NCC Co., Ltd., and Maruzen Petrochemical Co., Ltd., are considered in the report.
