Pour point is the lowest temperature at which fluid can flow freely under standard conditions. At low temperatures, the wax content in petroleum products crystallizes to form interlocking structures that prevents free flowing of these products. PPDs are the polymers used to lower this temperature. These polymers form a surface over the small wax crystals and inhibit the formation of crystal size and of gels. In short, PPD limit the wax crystal size to be small enough to allow a free flow.

PPDs are widely used in oil & gas industry to enhance pour point and flow characteristics for effective handling of crude oil in transportation, storage, and processing. They are also widely used as additives in mineral oil lubricants and in middle distillates such as diesel and kerosene. Asia-Pacific is the largest market for pour point depressants accounting for a share over 33.3% in terms of value in 2014.
The market for PPDs is driven by increasing refining capacity across the world and the growth of the lubricants industry coupled with rapid industrialization in emerging economies such as China, India, South America, and Eastern Europe. The presence of long-chain hydrocarbons in these types of base oils is mandating the manufacturers to use PPDs
