China cyclopentane market research report

From 2016 to 2020, the supply and demand of domestic cyclopentane market increased year by year, and the domestic cyclopentane market was in a balanced development state. The main reason for the synchronous increase of cyclopentane supply and demand in recent years is the gradual elimination of HCFC foaming agents and the upgrading of domestic foaming agent market. cyclopentane foaming agent has made good development in the field of rigid polyurethane foam with its excellent performance and price advantages.


By 2020, China's cyclopentane production capacity (fine separation unit) will reach 342000 tons/year, the output will reach 97000 tons, and the apparent consumption will reach 85000 tons.

From 2016 to 2019, the supply and demand of domestic cyclopentane market increased year by year. From the performance of domestic cyclopentane supply and demand, the domestic cyclopentane market continued to be in a balanced development state between supply and demand in 2015-2019. In 2020, the cyclopentane market supply and downstream demand is affected to some extent by COVID-19, and is shrank


Cyclopentane is mainly used as a new foaming agent for rigid polyurethane foam. It has been widely used in the production of fluorine free refrigerators, freezers, building exterior walls,cold storage insulation, refrigerated containers, pipeline insulation and other fields, and a small number of products are used in the production of pharmaceutical intermediates.

With the gradual acceleration of the HCFC elimination process, the future polyurethane foaming agent technology will enter an era of upgrading, and the supply of cyclopentane production enterprises is still expected to rise due to the high profit boost, the environment-friendly pentane foaming agent will seize part of the original market share of HCFC foaming agent, and it is expected that the demand of China's cyclopentane market will increase in the next 3-5 years.
