Other major applications include industrial processes and textile. Pentane plus is also added to natural heavy crude in order to make them easy to transport through pipes. The product helps in smooth oil flow in pipes which is expected to enhance global industry demand over the forecast period.
Apart from natural heavy crude, pentane plus is also as an additive for other oil mixes for smooth and easy pipeline transportation. Emerging economies such as India, China, Vietnam, Taiwan, and South Korea are expected to witness high gasoline demand over the forecast period.
This is expected to drive overall product market growth in the future. Pentane plus production process may result into occurrence of high vapor explosion hazards. Such high probability of hazard occurrence which may lead to huge loss of lives and environment is expected to restrain global industry demand over the forecast period.

Global pentane plus industry is segmented on the basis of octane number. Octane number not only defines fuel efficiency and quantity but also helps in identifying application areas. Higher octane number fuels are mainly used for petrol engines with high performance characteristics.
Lower octane fuels are utilized for diesel engines. There are number of problems associated with low octane rating fuels such as engine knocking issues. It is important to use correct pentane plus for different transportation fuels such as petrol and diesel. Lower octane pentane plus, if applied to petrol, may lead to engine knocking.
North America was a leading global industry as the U.S. has established as a major pentane plus exporter. Shale gas plays in the region has increased natural gas liquid production which has resulted into high pentane plus production regionally.
