Dec 2019. The neopentyl polyhydric alcohols discussed in this report include pentaerythritol, neopentyl glycol (NPG), trimethylolpropane, trimethylolethane, and dimethylolpropionic acid. China, Western Europe, and the United States are the largest markets for neopentyl polyhydric alcohols (NPA), accounting for nearly 75% of world consumption in 2019. World consumption of neopentyl polyhydric alcohols grew at an average annual rate of 4% during 2016–19 as a result of relatively strong growth in consuming industries such as automotive and construction. Since 2018, economic growth has slowed down while capacity additions, in particular, NPG in Asia, have continued. This has led to an oversupplied market and declining profitability. World consumption is forecast to grow at an average annual rate of 3.6% during 2019–24. Consumption of pentaerythritol and NPG in China will be the driver of this growth. In Western countries, particularly in Europe, demand may remain stagnant until the automotive sector recovers. Because new NPA capacity is already underway, the market is expected to remain oversupplied.
