Zion Research has published a new report titled “Polyols (Polyester and Polyether) Market for Rigid Foam, Flexible Foam, Coating, Adhesives, Sealants and Elastomers Applications - Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis and Forecast, 2014 – 2020” According to the report, the global polyols market was valued at approximately USD 18.0 billion in 2014 and is expected to reach approximately USD 29.5 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of slightly above 8.5% between 2015 and 2020.
Polyols can be classified into two types such as polyether polyols and polyester polyols. Polyether polyols can be manufactured by ethoxylation or propoxylation of a polyhydric alcohol in the presence of a catalyst. Polyether polyols are derived through anionic ring opening addition polymerization of ethylene oxide or propylene oxide. Polyurethane foams (PU) such as rigid PU foam, flexible PU foam, semi rigid foam, molded foam, etc. are some of the major application market for polyols. Coatings, adhesives, sealants, and elastomers (CASE), etc. are some of the other application markets for polyol. Construction, automotive, footwear, electrical & electronics are among the major end user industries of polyol.
