Global Polyol Market Overview – Bolstering Demand From Automotive and Construction Sector

Polyols are compounds with multiple hydroxyl functional groups available for organic reactions. A molecule with two hydroxyl groups is a diol, one with three is a triol, one with four is a tetrol and so on. The main use of polymeric polyols is as reactants to make other polymers and can be reacted with isocyanates to make polyurethanes. Polymeric polyols are an important group of functional resins which are used in the manufacture of a large number of products. They are typically viscous liquids or waxy solids depending on molecular weight, type of backbone and hydroxyl content. These materials are ultimately used to make footwears, fibers, insulation for appliances, adhesives, mattresses, automotive seats, etc. These are widely used in automobiles, medical, construction, furnishing, packaging, electricals and electronics sector. APAC is the largest growing market for polyol followed by Latin America.
