Polyols are carbohydrates without sugar. This makes them a potential substitute for sugar-free sweeteners. They can be classified as polyether polyols and polyester polyols. Besides sweeteners, they also find application as flexible foams, rigid foams, coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers. Polyols based product find significant applications in a variety industry as attributed to their lightweight, durability, compressive strength, thermal resistance and moisture resistance. The common end-users of polyols include industries like automotive, textile, buildings & construction and packaging amongst others.
Polyurethane (flexible foam) is the biggest product segment of the global polyols market followed by Polyurethane (rigid foam). Polyurethanes in turn find huge application in refrigeration, packaging, bedding, car interiors and seats, etc. Demands from polyurethane market are the main driving force behind the growth of the global polyols market. Polyurethane market is followed by automotives and textile industry, in terms of the biggest end-users. Speciality polymers are also coming up now. They find application in defoamers, inks and adhesive production.
Health hazards associated with polyols can significantly hamper the growth of the global polyols market. In addition, hikes in the prices of petroleum-based feedstock are acting a constraint to the growth of this market. However, bio based polyols (usually natural oil based) are gaining popularity. They can help tackle this problem as they do not lead to any side effects and accelerate the growth of the global polyols market. In addition, through active research in this area carbon dioxide based polyols are also coming up. Even this product can assist the growth of the global polyols market.
Asia-Pacific leads the global polyols market in terms of both demand and production followed by Europe and North America. Key players in global polyols market include BASF SE, Bayer AG, Cargill Inc, Stepan Company, Chemtura Corporation, Royal Dutch Shell Plc, Dow Chemical Company, Lonza group and Mitsui Chemicals.
