The global cyclopentane market size was USD 194.63 million in 2022 and is expected to reach USD 363.88 million in 2032, and register a revenue CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period. Market revenue growth is primarily being driven by rising demand for ecologically friendly Blowing Agents and Refrigerants across a variety of end-use sectors, including building & construction, appliances, automotive, and insulation.

Use of environment-friendly products is the major factor driving demand for Cyclopentane (HCFCs) due to strict government laws against the use of Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) and hydro chlorofluorocarbons. In Polyurethane foam insulation, refrigerators, freezers, and other appliances, cyclopentane is frequently used as a blowing agent and refrigerant. It is a Hydrocarbon that is a perfect replacement for HFCs and HCFCs since it has little Global Warming Potential (GWP) and zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP).

Greenhouse gases are released in large quantities due to human activities, and in view of the current level of emissions their atmospheric concentrations are expected to increase over the coming years. The major issue is with such gases used in refrigeration, which tend to be ozone-harming. Cyclopentane is considered a cost-effective solution to HCFC-141b, as it has the highest initial R-value, good peel adhesion, and good solubility with other raw materials. Many foam manufacturers opt for cyclopentane over HCFC-141b due to it being the cheaper alternative and zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and low Global Warming Potential (GWP). Compared to other fluorocarbons, cyclopentane is less potent as a global warming agent and does not break down into acids. These favorable properties are expected to drive the demand for cyclopentane in the application of blowing agents and refrigerants in the forecast period.

Increasing use of cyclopentane in refrigerators, growing demand for resins for the production of coating and adhesives, its wide application over a majority of industries and analytical & scientific applications such as manufacturing of reinforcement and composite materials of fiberglass and carbon fiber, are some of the key factors propelling market growth in the industry. However, health-related hazards caused due to prolonged exposure to products containing Cyclopentane and high cost of capital investment required, are the major hindrance for market growth during 2019-2026.
