Pentane is an organic compound having a 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 a gasoline-like odor and is burnt as a fuel. Pentane has several industrial uses, such as it is used to create blowing agent to further form a polystyrene.

The growth of the 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, such as higher strength as compared to other alkanes and superior volatility. Moreover, increased 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 towards usage of pentane hampers the global pentane market.

The global pentane market is segmented on the basis of type, application, and geography. Based on type, the market is classified into n-pentane, isopentane, and neopentane. n-Pentane generated the maximum revenue in 2016, and is expected to remain dominant throughout the analysis period, as it is widely used in various personal care and industrial aerosol products as an aerosol propellant. Moreover, it serves as an essential blowing agent for polyurethane and expanded polystyrene foams. The applications covered in the study include blowing agent, electronic cleansing, chemical solvent, and others.
