Pentaerythritol is majorly used for manufacturing alkyd paints which has been a key
contributor to its market growth in recent times and owing to the growing infrastructure
market mainly in Asia Pacific, this trend is expected to continue over the forecast
period. In addition, eco-friendly nature of pentaerythritol has been gaining regulatory
support as a non-hazardous and sustainable product for end-users. Furthermore, emerging
innovative applications of pentaerythritol such as therapeutics and marine coatings are
expected to provide immense opportunities for the major players operating in the global
market. However, limited availability of raw materials such as formaldehyde and
acetaldehyde due to overlapping with their other commercial applications is expected to
inhibit the market growth.

Alkyd paint was the largest application segment for pentaerythritol and accounted for
over 37% of the total market in 2011. Alkyd paint application is expected to grow at a
CAGR of 5.5% over the forecast period. These paints find applications in residential as
well as industrial construction. Applications of pentaerythritol in plasticizers are
expected to be the fastest growing applications and are projected to grow at a CAGR of
5.9% from 2012 to 2018.
