Global Polyols Market 2015-2019

Press Release   •   Aug 05, 2015 06:57 EDT

About Polyols
Polyols are one of the main ingredients of polyurethane foams. Polyol is an alcohol that contains multiple hydroxyl groups. Polyols are segmented into polyether and polyester polyols. Polyether polyols are manufactured by the propoxylation of a polyhydric alcohol in the presence of a catalyst. Bio-based polyols are expected to boost the global polyols market, as global companies are investing in R&D to produce bio-based polyols on a commercial scale. Polyols are used in coatings, adhesives, sealants, artificial leather, and medical devices.

The report's analysts forecast the global polyols market to grow at a CAGR of 8.91% by revenue over the period 2014-2019.
