Global Polyester Polyol Market 2017-2021: Boosted by the Advent of Bio-Based Polyols - Research and Markets

The "Global Polyester Polyol Market 2017-2021" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

The global polyester polyol market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 5.36% during the period 2017-2021.

The report, Global Polyester Polyol Market 2017-2021, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is the advent of bio-based polyols. Raw materials used in the manufacturing of polyester polyols are petroleum-based. Since petroleum is a non-renewable source and has several environmental implications, manufacturers are looking bio-based renewable sources. In addition, the availability of raw materials, fluctuation in crude oil prices are the factors that will augment high adoption of bio-based polyols in the next five years. Thus, many companies have intensified the R&D activities to come up with bio-based polyols. In future, seed oils can be used for manufacturing water-blown rigid PU foam.

One of the major drivers for this market is the superior properties of polyester polyol. C.A.S.E. are manufactured using different types of polyols. Each polyol facilitates different characteristic as per the application. Polyester polyols are extensively used in manufacturing C.A.S.E. and are opted more than polyether polyols because of their properties such as high tensile, tear, and flex fatigue resistance. Polyester polyols provide better broad molecular weight distribution and viscosity. In addition, polyester polyols facilitate higher resistance to oil, grease, solvents, and oxidation.
