This report includes three main applications of polyols that are –polyurethane (flexible foam), polyurethane (rigid foam), CASE (Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants and Elastomers). Polyurethane (flexible foam) is used mainly in furniture and auto motive industry for arm rests, head rests and for cushioning purposes.

The global market for polyols increasing due to the following factors:

  • Increasing construction activities
  • Rapidly growing automotive industry in major markets
  • Increasing demand for textiles and fibers

About the market
The global polyols market has grown significantly during the last few years. It is expected to grow rapidly in the next five years, mainly driven by the growing consumption in Asia-Pacific region.

The polyols market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 9.0% between 2014 and 2019 and is estimated to generate the global market size of around $28.0 billion by 2019. The polyether is the largest segment (type) of polyols market. The polyurethane (rigid foam) is the largest application of polyols.

The report on polyols includes two different types. These are polyether and polyester. The global polyols market is witnessing high growth because of favorable regulations & abundant availability of raw materials in Asia-Pacific. In the case of polyols, it is more profitable for manufacturers to establish manufacturing units in close proximity of the raw material source and engage in long-term supply contracts between the raw material supplier and the manufacturer. Asia-Pacific is currently the largest and fastest market for polyols. Along with the growing consumption, the availability of raw materials and favorable regulations are attracting major players to expand their capacities in the Asia-Pacific region.

The rapidly growing polyurethane market is driving the demand for polyols. Polyurethane is one of the most widely used plastics in the world, finding applications in almost all modern industries. These are made primarily by reacting diisocyanates with polyols and other chemicals.

The adhesives and sealants industry is witnessing high growth on account of increasing applications, technological advancements, and growing demand in the Asia-Pacific region. These are finding new applications in industries such as construction and automobile. In the automobile industry these are replacing welds, screws, rivets, gaskets, and fasteners; thus allowing automakers to produce lighter compact vehicles at lower cost by using new materials such as plastic composite and fiber. In the construction industry adhesives and sealants are increasingly being used in flooring, waterproofing, woodwork, and plumbing applications.          

The key participants in the global polyols market include The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), Bayer MaterialScience AG (Germany), BASF SE (Germany), Royal Dutch Shell plc (Netherlands), Huntsman Corp (U.S.), Perstorp Holdings AB (Sweden), Baalbaki Group S.A. (Syria), Cargill Incorporated (U.S.), Chemtura Corporation (U.S.), C.O.I.M. S.p.A (Italy), Expanded Polymer Systems Pvt. Ltd (India), KPX Chemical Co. Ltd (South Korea), and Stepan Company (U.S.) among others. This report follows both top-down and bottom-up approaches to estimate and forecast the global polyols market size, by volume and value.
