Market Overview

The Cyclopentane Market is projected to register a CAGR of 7.40% to reach USD 493,623.5 Thousand by the end of 2027.

Cyclopentane is a combustible hydrocarbon, which is also known as pentamethylene. It is widely used as a blowing agent in foam manufacturing and has zero ozone depletion potential, thereby recognized by environmental groups. It is a superior alternative to HCFCs and CFCs. It is used in home refrigerator appliances, insulating foams, panels, boards, and pipes in the construction industry.

The primary driver of the global cyclopentane market is its use as a blowing agent for manufacturing rigid foam insulation and phase-out of HCFCs and HFCs refrigerants. Refrigerants are working agents or fluids used in refrigerating systems to absorb heat during evaporation in regions of low temperatures and pressures and release heat during condensation in regions with high temperatures and pressures. They are the primary fluid responsible for cooling purposes in commercial and residential refrigerators. Hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) and hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) are used in various applications such as automotive, home air conditioners, and industrial refrigeration.

Cyclopentane has less global warming potential and promises low operating costs, making them the preferred choice for blowing agents in end-use industries.


The global Cyclopentane Market has been segmented based on Application, End User, and Region.

The global cyclopentane market is classified into blowing agent, solvent reagent, and others. The blowing agent segment accounted for the largest market share of 85.60% in 2019, with a market value of USD 2,92,645.3 thousand; it is expected to register the highest CAGR of 7.59% during the forecast period.

The cyclopentane market is categorized into residential refrigerators, commercial refrigerators, construction, and others by end-use industry. The residential refrigerators segment accounted for the largest market share of more than 40% in 2019 and is expected to register a CAGR of 7.48% during the forecast period. However, the construction segment will register the highest CAGR of 8.22%.

Regional Analysis
