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.
