The settlement (as Bechelaren) was established in the 12th century as a trading and transshipment point for goods like wine, salt, iron. The market and fortifications were built in the 13th century when also the town received city rights. Pochlarn's economic growth reached its heyday in the 16th century. Following the Thirty Years' War (1618-1648) and two devastating fires (1664, 1766), the market town lost its regional importance.

The current-day town's economy relies on large employers like Vetropack Group (Switzerland-based, family-owned glass packaging manufacturer), Bramac (roof tiles), Lasselsberger Group (producer of raw materials, building materials, ceramic tiles).
