The global cyclopentane market size was USD 229.5 million in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 338.7 million by 2027, at a CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period. Increasing demand for cyclopentane from various industries, technological advances in refrigeration systems, rising demand for refrigerators and freezers, increasing preference for eco-friendly insulation materials and growing demand for foam blowing agents from the automotive and construction industries are some key factors influencing the market growth. However, factors such as flammability of cyclopentane, side effects related to health associated with the increased amount of consumption of cyclopentane and huge capital investments are hindering the market growth. Extreme overexposure to cyclopentane may cause central nervous system depression, unconsciousness, and respiratory arrest. Ingesting the product may also cause hemorrhaging of mucous membranes, diarrhea, or aspiration of the liquid resulting in chemical pneumonitis. Hence, side effects related to health associated with the increased amount of consumption of cyclopentane limits the market growth. Cyclopentane is a ring-shaped five-carbon acyclic hydrocarbon compound. It is a member of the cycloalkanes family. Cyclopentane is used to make resins, synthetic rubber, and rubber glue. In the production of polyurethane insulating foam, cyclopentane is also used as a blowing agent. They’re also used in the manufacturing of fuels and as a solvent. Cyclopentane is a highly flammable alicyclic hydrocarbon used to make synthetic resins and rubber adhesives, as well as to change the cellular structure of polyurethane insulating foam used in commercial refrigerators. It has a colourless appearance and an odour that is similar to gasoline.
