Key Findings

The global polyols market is dominated by polyether polyol, owing to its lower price and widespread penetration. However, with growing customer preference for superior quality and durability, polyester polyol is likely to replace polyether polyol in certain applications such as adhesives and sealants used in insulating glass units.

- Asia-Pacific (APAC) and Rest of the World (ROW) are the key growth engines for the polyols market, owing to robust GDP growth and increasing disposable income. Furthermore, robust growth of end-user industries such as automotive, construction, footwear, and upholstery is also expected to boost the market.

- Adoption of products with superior price-performance index is growing in Europe and North America. This is primarily because of increasing customer preference for product quality and performance.

- Price has emerged as the key differentiating factor in the polyether polyol market because of intense competition and oversupply. On the other hand, product performance has emerged as the key competitive factor in the polyester polyol market.

- The polyurethane coatings market is likely to be dominated by polyether polyol, owing to its low viscosity and lower glass transition temperature. However, as performance requirements of coatings are continuously increasing, polyester is likely to replace polyether in the transportation industry owing to growing demand for scratch- and chemical-resistant coatings.

- Growing demand for adhesives with superior bonding strength and durability in Europe and North America is likely to drive polyester polyol revenues, while the growing adoption of polyether in hot cast elastomers is expected to drive polyether polyol revenues.
