The global pentaerythritol market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020.

Looking forward, the analyst expects the market to grow at a CAGR of around 6% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Pentaerythritol, or tetramethyl methane, is a white crystalline powder that is primarily used in the manufacturing of synthetic lubricants and resins. It is an organic compound that is produced by the condensation of acetaldehyde and formaldehyde and is used in high-quality surface coatings, refrigeration systems and varnishes. It is soluble in organic solvents, such as glycerol, ethanol, acetone, carbon tetrachloride and petroleum and exhibits physical properties, such as high flash point, resistance to ignition, high thermal stability and low volatility. It also exhibits high luster, flexibility and water and alkali resistance, owing to which it is widely used in the manufacturing of medicines, flame retardants, pesticides and explosives.

Extensive utilization of pentaerythritol in the automotive industry is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. In this industry, pentaerythritol is used in the manufacturing of automotive lubricants and polyurethane foams that are integrated into vehicle interiors and door handles, bumper systems, gear knobs, dashboards and seat cushions. Furthermore, the increasing demand for formaldehyde and acetaldehyde substitutes in the production of paints, coatings, alkyd adhesives, plasticizers, radiation-cured coatings and industrial inks and synthetic rubber is also providing a boost to the market growth. Apart from this, various industries are using pentaerythritol as a stable alternative for electrical transformer liquids. Additionally, growing environmental consciousness among the masses that has led to an increasing preference for bio-based polyols, including pentaerythritol, is creating a positive outlook for the market. Other factors, including rapid industrialization, along with extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are projected to drive the market further.
