The global green and bio polyols market size is estimated at USD 4.4 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 6.9 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 9.5%, between 2022 and 2027. Green and bio polyols are either synthesized from natural oils, such as soya, castor, palm, canola, and sunflower, or natural sources, such as corn and sugar, or Carbon Dioxide (CO2). They are also recycled from polymers, such as polyurethanes (PU) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET). These polyols are used to make PU rigid and flexible foams, and coatings, adhesives, sealants, and elastomers (CASE), which are used in several end-use industries. The green and bio polyols market comprises polyether polyols and polyester polyols. Green and bio-based polyether polyols are obtained by polycondensation reaction of propane-1,3-diol derived from glycerin, which can be obtained from several plant sources. Bio-based polyester polyols are formed by the condensation of bio-based dicarboxylic acids, such as adipic or succinic acid, with bio-based polyols (propane-1, 3-diol).
Factors, such as eco-friendliness and sustainability of bio polyols, consistent supply of bio-based feedstock, and crude oil price fluctuations affect the green and bio polyols market directly and indirectly. Increasing use of bio polyols in the automotive and packaging industries and recycling of polyols from foam-based waste offer lucrative growth opportunities for the green and bio polyols market. However, the high costs of these polyols as compared to conventional polyols are a major restraint for market players.
