Polyether polyols is a type of polyol,s having two or more hydroxyl group attached to the terminal groups. Polyether polyols contains ether chain and manufactured from cyclic ethers or epoxides, through catalytic addition reaction. Globally, development of efficient and advance technology, rising demand from polyurethane industry increasing demand from industrial lubricant, flourishing automotive industry, aggregating demand for flexible foam, and growing demand from infrastructure industry are the prime growth drivers of global polyether polyols market. In addition, emergence of bio based polyether polyols and its raising popularity, increase in adoption of polyether polyols for application in newer industrial vertical, and emerging economies such as China, India and others, will create new opportunities for global polyether polyols market. However, volatile prices and availability of raw materials, availability of substitute compounds, and risk of health hazards are the key restraints for global polyether polyols market.

Geographically Asia Pacific dominated global polyether polyols market, followed by Europe, because of higher demand for polyols in China especially from the construction industry. Asia Pacific is projected to have fastest growth, owing to rapidly increasing automobile industry, rise in infrastructure industry, and growing demand for flexible foams bedding, furniture, and carpets interlay in developing nations such as China, and India in this region. Among all the applications, flexible foam segment has the highest market share in global polyether polyols market due to rise in demand from home textiles and in automotive industry. Flexible Polyether Polyols is the market leader among all types of polyether polyols, owing to its better performance and environment friendly properties.
