Country-wise Analysis

Why is China a Lucrative Market for Cyclopentane?

Over the past half-decade, the China market for cyclopentane expanded at a CAGR of 5.6%, creating an absolute $ opportunity of US$ 82 Mn.

China has a sizable wet food sector, which has exploded in popularity in recent months as a result of the pandemic. As a result, the country has taken precautions to maintain hygiene in these marketplaces, resulting in a surge in demand for refrigerators to keep food fresh.

As a result of cyclopentane use as a blowing agent for polyurethane foams used to insulate refrigerators and freezers, cyclopentane demand has risen as a result of the increased demand for refrigerators.

Owing to the above-discussed factor, the market in China is projected to expand at a CAGR of round 7.9% over the forecast period.

What is the Demand Scenario for Cyclopentane in the U.S.?

The U.S. cyclopentane market accounted for 89% the market share in 2020 in North America, and created an absolute $ opportunity of US$ 75 Mn. The U.S. has a well-established market for cyclopentane, which is mainly attributed to high demand for polyurethane (PU) foams from the growing construction sector in the country.

Additionally, the pandemic relief package of US$ 1.9 Tn stimulus is anticipated to raise infrastructure spending. In terms of infrastructure investments, the United States was rated 39th in the world in 2018. This includes putting in pricing infrastructure to encourage the use of green buildings.

Category-wise Analysis

Why is Cyclopentane Requirement being Triggered for Use in Commercial Refrigerators?

Use of cyclopentane in commercial freezers has given the market new potential. Cyclopentane is a foam-blowing agent commonly used in the insulation of freezers and refrigerators.

The commercial refrigerator industry is expanding at a healthy rate around the world, with Asia Pacific leading the way. The relevance of commercial refrigerators is also growing as a result of changing climatic circumstances, which has resulted in agricultural waste due to insufficient storage choices.

According to studies, more than a quarter of the harvest never makes it to market owing to faulty cooling. Growing population has necessitated effective delivery of food in order to avoid famine, hunger, and illness. Commercial refrigeration systems have become more important as a result, and governments across the world are supporting their use to keep food fresh and extend its shelf life.

Due to its improved advantages over conventional foaming agents, cyclopentane is gaining significant traction as a foaming agent in polyurethane foam manufacturing, accounting for over 90% market share. Furthermore, cyclopentane minimizes greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions during the insulation process of refrigerator production. As a result, the segment is poised to expand at a CAGR of 7.5% over the forecast period.

Why are Insulated Containers Generating Demand for Cyclopentane?

Cyclopentane is frequently utilised as a blowing agent in the manufacture of insulation materials for use in insulated containers and sippers, which held a market value of US$ 15 Mn year 2020.

The worldwide consumer goods industry is expanding fast, and is likely to boost demand for cyclopentane, which is used to make insulating materials for use in insulated containers and sippers. Insulated containers, particularly lunch boxes, are in high demand in the consumer market due to the numerous benefits they offer. The use of sippers is ubiquitous in the athletic and sports community, and insulated sippers are gaining popularity.

Due to the economic effectiveness of cyclopentane over other blowing agents, leading manufacturers of sippers and lunch boxes are also choosing PU-based insulation that employs cyclopentane as the foam blowing agent. Consumers have also shown strong interest in large insulated containers, such as non-electric cold drink containers.

Furthermore, pharmaceutical and medical institutions are expanding their need for big insulated containers that use cyclopentane as a foam blowing agent to store important drugs and samples (blood and others) to be examined.

These factors are likely to contribute to high segment growth at a CAGR of 8.1% over the forecast period.
