Neopentyl Glycol (NPG) Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Technology, Demand & Supply, End-User Industries, Distribution Channel, Regional Demand, 2015-2030

Format: Online | Last Updated: Jun 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] Global neopentyl glycol demand is projected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 4.19% during the forecast period. Neopentyl glycol is polyalcohol having superior performance advantages in many end use areas due to its high chemical and thermal stability. There are two main routes to NPG using isobutyraldehyde and formaldehyde. In the first one, the raw materials react with a strongly alkaline catalyst to form NPG. In the process large amounts of formate salts are formed as byproduct. In a second and more common process, the aldolisation reaction is carried out in the presence of an amine catalyst. This is further hydrogenated in the presence of a catalyst and the molten NPG is solidified by means of a flaking roll, or a crystallising or cooling belt.  Neopentyl glycol (NPG) is mainly used as a building block for coating resins such as saturated polyesters which have major application in powder coatings, unsaturated polyesters which have application in artificial marble and gel coat for boats, and alkyd resins which have application in metal coatings. NPG is also used for the production of polyurethane resins which have application as adhesives. Other applications of NPG include polyester lubricants and plasticizers. Major end uses for NPG include automotive, construction, furniture, electronics, pharmaceuticals. Growing demand for coating resins from the end use industries including construction and automotive is expected to drive the demand of neopentyl glycol (NPG) during the forecast period. Capacity expansions by companies including BASF and Sinopec expansion of capacity from 40 KT to 80 KT in China is expected to further the opportunities in the market for NPG. 
Owing to the impact of COVID-19, neopentyl glycol demand has declined drastically due to nationwide lockdowns and subsequent disruptions in supply chains. Construction and automotive sectors were the most severely hit sectors during the pandemic. However overall good demand growth has been observed in China from the manufacturing sector due to continuation of production activities after the lockdowns. 
Region wise, Asia Pacific region holds the major share of global demand for neopentyl glycol due to growing demand for commercial and residential construction and automotive sector. Increasing demand for downstream industries such as polyurethane resins, polyester lubricants and plasticizers have led various global companies to set up manufacturing plants in the region thereby increasing the overall capacity in the region. Increasing population and per capita income in emerging economies is another factor propelling demand growth for neopentyl glycol in Asia Pacific.
