Pentane is colourless with a very low odour and high volatility thanks to its low, narrow boiling range – it is among the lowest boiling hydrocarbon liquids and so evaporates at a very high rate. It is used principally as a blowing agent in foam production, as a propellant in aerosols and as reaction media for polymerisation processes. In actual production, pentane blend is the most common type. Isopentane and Normalpentane Blend contain Isopentane and Normalpentane as the main ingredients. The single principal content is not less than 10%, not more than 90%. Pentane blend is a very fast evaporating hydrocarbon solvent and low in impurities such as sulphur, olefins, benzene and total aromatics. Examples of end uses for this solvent are blowing agent, electronic cleaning and polymerisation. In the report, we main cover pentane blend.
Pentane is a low-cost blowing agent. Over the past few decades, the technology and development of mixed pentane have not developed by leaps and bounds. In the Asia-Pacific region, EPS is growing faster. The EPS industry in the US and Europe is already quite stable.
As China's EPS market continues to grow, China has become the world's largest producer and consumer country. Europe is the second largest consumer area. The downstream customers of Japan, Southeast Asia and Korea are less. As a result, the markets in these areas are small. In the future, India and Southeast Asia market is expected to show some growth. In the world, the main consumers are BASF, SABIC, INOES and Huntsman.
In recent years, global crude oil prices have been declining. As a downstream product, the price of pentane is declining. In the future, the price of crude oil is relatively stable, and the price of pentane does not change much.
