The propylene oxide market is projected to grow from USD 22.5 billion in 2021 to USD 29.5 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 5.6% from 2021 to 2026. The increasing demand for polyether polyols for the production of polyurethane is expected to increase the demand for propylene oxide over the next few years.
Increase in demand for polyurethane from the healthcare industry is expected to open new revenue pockets for the propylene oxide market. However, the impact of COVID–19 on the automotive and construction industries may restrain the market growth.

Polyether polyols application segment is projected to lead the propylene oxide market during the forecast period.
Based on application, the polyether polyols segment is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecasted period.Polyether polyols are manufactured by the catalyzed addition of epoxides to propylene oxide or ethylene oxide.

They are mainly used in the manufacturing of polyurethanes (flexible foams).Polyether polyols are a class of organic chemicals that contain multiple ether linkages and have multiple hydroxyl groups.

The majority of polyether polyols are used in the manufacturing of urethanes and other products, such as surface-active agents, functional fluids, and synthetic lubricants.

Building & Construction is the second-largest end-use industry segment propylene oxide market.

Based on the end-use industry, the building & construction segment accounted for the second-largest share in the propylene oxide market.Building & construction industry is one of the major end-use industries of propylene oxide.

In this end-use industry, fiber-reinforced plastics (FRPs) are used primarily for manufacturing building panels, bathroom components, fixtures, corrosion-resistant tanks, and pipes and ducts.These FRPs are produced by reinforcing nearly three–quarters of unsaturated polyester resins (UPR) with fiberglass or mineral fillers.

UPR are made from monopropylene glycol (MPG), which is obtained from propylene glycol.

Asia Pacific is projected to grow the highest CAGR in the propylene oxide market during the forecast period.
Asia Pacific is projected to grow at the highest CAGR in the propylene oxide market from 2021 to 2026.Increasing demand for propylene oxide from the polyether polyols and propylene glycol application segments is a major factor driving the Asia Pacific propylene oxide market.

China is projected to be the world’s largest consumer of propylene oxide during the forecast period.The country has witnessed capacity expansion projects by companies, such as Royal Dutch Shell plc (Netherlands) in recent times.

This capacity expansion will enable the production of an additional 300 kilotons of propylene oxide and 600 kilotons of polyols in the country.
