Polyols are hydroxyl-terminated polyethers or hydroxyl-terminated polyesters. Polyuols are basically alcohols including two or more hydroxyl groups in their molecular chain. Polyether polyols and polyester polyols are two major types of polyols. Polyether polyols can be obtained 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. Polyols are primarily used in the manufacture of polyurethane foams (PU) such as rigid PU foam, flexible PU foam, semi rigid foam, molded foam, etc. Other prominent applications of polyols include coatings, adhesives, sealants, and elastomers (CASE), etc. Construction, automotive, footwear, electrical & electronics are among the major end user industries of polyol.

Polyols market is mainly driven by increasing demand from construction, and automotive industries in developing countries and simultaneously increasing demand of variety of polyols products such as polyester, polyether. Rise in demand for polyols products from such as polyester, polyether is mainly due to the huge demand from growth in end-user industries. Additionally, rising awareness about bedding and mattresses, predominantly in developing region like Asia Pacific is also expected to surge demand for polyols in the years to come. The rising individual income of the population demands for products such as chewing gums, candies, ice cream, baked goods etc., in which polyols are used, this factor boost the polyols market.

Polyols

Based on products, polyols market has been segmented into polyester and polyether. Polyether polyols accounted for the largest share of global polyols market in 2014, in terms of volume.
