The Polyol market size is estimated to be USD 36.7 billion in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 49.3 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 6.1%. Polyols are one of the main raw materials used in the manufacturing of polyurethane. Other materials like isocyanates such as toluene diisocyanate (TDI) and polymeric isocyanate (PMDI) are also used in the manufacturing process. Polyols are compounds containing multiple hydroxyl functional groups. As per the number of hydroxyl groups in the molecule, these are called diols, triols, tetrols, and so on. There are two types of polyols - polyether polyols and polyester polyols.
Polyols can be used across various applications, including flexible polyurethane foam, rigid polyurethane foam, and CASE (coatings, adhesives & sealants, and elastomers). Polyols are one of the main raw materials used in the manufacturing of polyurethane, which is mainly used in the industries like building & construction, automotive, furnishings, packaging, electronics, and others like footwear.
