Pentaerythritol is a white, crystalline, water-soluble organic powder (in powder form) with the formula C5H12O4. Pentaerythritol is an alcohol with four hydroxyl groups. It is manufactured using acetaldehyde and formaldehyde through the aldol condensation process, which is followed by a crossed cannizzaro reaction. Components of alkyd resins, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) stablizers, varnishes, tall oil esters and olefin antioxidants are some of the derivatives of pentaerythritol. Pentaerythritol has different derivatives such as pentaerythritol tetranitrate (nitrate ester of pentaerythritol), pentaerythritol esters, dipentaerythritol and pentaerythritol tri-acrylate.

One major trend in the pentaerythritol market is the use of pentaerythritol for automobile industry applications such as coatings, interiors, and high-grade lubricants. Pentaerythritol is also used in the synthesis of polyurethane foams, which are used in automobile interiors. Pentaerythritol finds its use in various industries such as paints, automobiles, construction and others.

Increasing use of alkyd paints in automotive and construction industry, especially in developing countries, is anticipated to lead the growth for the pentaerythritol market. In addition, environmentally friendly property of pentaerythritol is a key growth driver for pentaerythritol market. Pentaerythritol is also widely used as a substitute for electrical transformer fluid which is a major driver of the global pentaerythritol market.
