Production and Market of Pentaerythritol in China/industry publication

Date: 2015-05


The main end use segments of pentaerythritol in China are alkyd resin, polyurethane, rosin pentaerythritol ester and lubricant. China’s automobile industry and building industry developed quickly in the past few years, resulting in the increasing demand for coating & paint. China became the largest coating & paint producer in the world in 2009, demanding more and more pentaerythritol.

The fast development of China’s pentaerythritol industry soon eventuated in overcapacity. The competition among Chinese pentaerythritol producers is getting more intense and the profit of pentaerythritol for most producers is low. Some even stopped pentaerythritol production gradually because of low profit.

Technology problem, environmental protection pressure, RMB appreciation, demand, price, production cost as well as profit keep affecting the supply of pentaerythritol producers in China.

Industrial affairs:

The global capacity of pentaerythritol was over 600,000 t/a in 2013, with 380,000 t/a in Asia-Pacific, 140,000 t/a in Europe, and 80,000 t/a in the US. Moreover, Asia-Pacific is the largest consumer, followed by Europe and the US.

China’s position:

Driven by the rapid development of China’s economy in the past few years, the domestic pentaerythritol industry has witnessed a fast development. In the past ten years, pentaerythritol production had been transferring from the EU and North America to Asia, and China has been the top production base of pentaerythritol in the world, with its pentaerythritol capacity accounting for about 50% of the global total.
