Polyester polyols based on aliphatic and aromatic dicarboxylic acids are valuable materials in polymer technologies. Among them are low-molecular weight oligomeric derivatives of phthalic and terephthalic acids that are widely used in high strength and rigidity polyesters and polyurethane foams. The use of aromatic acids offers many benefits to polymer properties together with sensible mechanical characteristics, high thermal stability, resistance to major chemical solvents, and low flammability.

The polyester polyol market is primarily driven by strong demand for polyester polyol coupled with demand from the adhesives & sealants market. In addition, rising demand from the emerging economies is another driving factor of the polyester polyol market during near future. However, raw materials price volatility is a major restraint that may limit the growth of the polyester polyol market. Nonetheless, bio-based polyester polyols to may open growth opportunities for the polyester polyol market within the forecast period.

Global Polyester Polyol Market

Aliphatic and aromatic are the major types of polyester polyols in the market. Aliphatic polyester polyol dominated the global polyester polyol market in 2015. It accounted over 60% share of the entire market. In addition, the growing demand for insulation foam is expected to spur the demand for polyester polyol in the years to come.

Flexible foam, spray foam, rigid foam, refrigeration, CASE and others are the key applications of the global polyester polyol market. Among all, flexible foam was the leading application segment in 2015. It accounted over 30% share of the market in terms of volume consumption and this trend is expected to continue within the forecast period as well. In addition, CASE and rigid foam are other important outlets that are expected to have promising growth during the years to come due to robust demand for polyester polyol.

Geographically, Asia-Pacific was the largest consumer of polyester polyol, which constituted over 30% share of the total volume consumption in 2015. In addition, demand for polyester polyol in the Asia Pacific is estimated to be primarily driven by the increase in consumption of polyester polyol in China and India during the years to come. In terms of revenue, Asia Pacific was followed by North America and Europe. In addition, Latin America is expected to witness significant growth within the forecast period.

Some of the key participant of the global polyester polyol market includes Stepan, Zhang Long Industry Co. Ltd., Myriant, BASF, INVISTA, The Dow Chemicals and amongst others.
