Pentane Market: Global Industry Analysis and Future Growth Opportunities and Forecast 2027

The Pentane Market is expected to reach US$ 153.32 million by 2027, thanks to growth in the industrial uses segment. The report analyzes Pentane market dynamics by region and applications.

Pentane Market Overview:

The Pentane Market was valued at US $114.72 million in 2020, and it is expected to reach US $153.32 million by 2027 with a CAGR of 4.23% during the forecast period. The chemical compound pentane has the formula C5H12, which means it is a five-carbon alkane. In IUPAC nomenclature, pentane can refer to any of three structural isomers or a mixture of them however, in practice, pentane only refers to the n-pentane isomer; the other two are known as isopentane and neopentane. Because cyclopentane only contains 10 hydrogen atoms while pentane has 12, it is not an isomer of pentane. Pentanes are used as specialty solvents in the laboratory and are found in some fuels. They have qualities that are extremely similar to butanes and hexanes. Pentane isomers have boiling temperatures ranging from 9 to 36 °C. The boiling temperatures of the heavily branched isomers are lower, as they are for other alkanes. The melting points of alkane isomers tend to be similar, with isopentane being 30 degrees Celsius lower than n-pentane. However, neopentane, the most extensively branched of the three, has a melting point that is 100 degrees Celsius higher than isopentane. Neopentane's very high melting point has been attributed to the tetrahedral molecules clustering closer together in solid form.

Pentane Market Dynamics:

Residential LPG Demand Is Surging, With Government Policies to Back It Up:

As the population of Asia Pacific, Africa, North America, and other places has surged, so has the use of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) as a primary cooking fuel among the local people. In India, for example, LPG is used as cooking fuel by about 80% of all residential families. When compared to traditional fuels like wood and coal, LPG is easily accessible, clean, environmentally friendly, portable, and, most importantly, cost-effective. Because of its advantages over traditional fuel, many governments throughout the world have initiated efforts to promote the use of LPG as cooking fuel. Pentane Market 1 For example, the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojna, an Indian government scheme in which 50 million LPG connections were anticipated to be made available to women from low-income households, as well as other initiatives such as streamlining registration and payment processes, cylinder distribution, and cylinder subsidization, have resulted in the enhanced acceptance of LPG as household fuel, reducing the dependency on traditionally consumed pollutant causing cooking fuel like coal and firewood. These factors are likely to raise demand for pentane, which is one of the major elements in the synthesis of LPG.

Exports Of Marine Pentane Were Expected to Increase In 2020:

Shipments of marine pentane on Canada's west coast climbed by up to almost 77% in 2020, averaging 39 thousand barrels per day (Mb/d). In 2020, around 25% of Canadian pentane exports were transported. These shipments were all shipped to Asia, with the majority arriving in Japan. Increased demand related to the winter season and increased petrochemical feedstock needs, notably in China, drove growth in Canadian marine Pentane exports in 2020. Exports of marine pentane to Asian countries increased as a result of a drop in supplies from Saudi Arabia, a major pentane provider to Asian markets. Pentane Market 2

Pentane Price Volatility in 2020:

The United States controls 65% to 70% of the global pentane supply. Pentane prices in the United States increased nearly every month in 2021, as supply chain disruptions collided with resurgent demand. Pentane saw variable pricing sessions at international hubs from January 2020 to September 2021 as a result of limited supplies and increased export demand globally. Pentane Market 3 As a result, the market's volatility in Pentane prices, notably in the United States, has been a source of concern, and it is likely to hinder growth throughout the forecast period.

Global Pentane Market Segment Analysis:

Based on Application, the pentane market is segmented as, industrial uses, and laboratory uses. In 2020, the industrial uses segment was dominant and held xx% of the overall market share in terms of revenue as it is widely used in many industrial applications. The principal blowing agents used in the manufacturing of polystyrene foam and other foams are pentanes. This is usually done with a mixture of n-, i-, and increasingly cyclopentane. Isopentane is produced by acid-catalyzed isomerization, which is utilized to make high-octane fuels. Pentanes are employed as a working medium in geothermal power plants and some blended refrigerants. They have also been consumed as a working medium in organic Rankine cycles thanks to their low boiling temperatures, low cost, and relative safety. Pentanes are solvents found in a wide range of essential products, including pesticides. Pentane Market 4

Global Pentane Market Regional Insights:

China is the world's largest user of pentane, accounting for more than a quarter of total consumption. To meet the massive domestic demand, China imported over 14.92 million metric tonnes of pentane in 2019, up 10.82 percent from total imports in 2018. The reason for the increase in pentane imports in the country is increased demand from pentane dehydrogenation facilities or PDH plants. Following Thailand, China is Asia's second-largest Pacific Autogas market. As a result of municipal programs pushing alternative fuels to tackle the country's escalating air pollution problem, China's Autogas market increased significantly. Autogas schemes, which were first used in Guangzhou and Hong Kong, have since extended to more than 25 cities. Autogas is used by nearly all of Guangzhou's over 20,000 taxis and 91% of the city's nearly 9,000 buses. Autogas is also used by virtually all taxis and 31% of all public buses in Hong Kong, a city of roughly 30,000 people.   The objective of the report is to present a comprehensive analysis of the market to the stakeholders in the industry.
