This is the first edition of a four volume study on the global market for polyols. Aromatic Polyester Polyols are covered in Volume 2.
The geographic scope of the study is as follows:
- EMEA (Western Europe, Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa)
- The Americas (North, Central and South)
- Asia Pacific (China and Rest of Asia Pacific)
Using the latest available information from official and industry sources, the reports summarise the production of relevant polyurethane products and their associated demand for polyester aliphatic/aromatic) and polyether polyols. In addition, polyol manufacturing capacities across each region are stated.
The volumes follow the same format for ease of comparison. A more comprehensive breakdown is provided on the right-hand side of this leaflet. The format for Volume 4 is somewhat different, showing varying consumption scenarios for eco-friendly polyols.
Research for this study was carried out in late 2022. Data is provided for the year 2022, in addition to forecasts for 2027 (Forecasts for eco-friendly polyols until 2032).
The study reviews the consumption of polyols by major polyurethane end-use sectors.
Volume 2 - Aromatic Polyester Polyols End-Use Segments
- PU/PIR Rigid Foam (Panels and Boards, Slabstock, Rigid Spray Foam, Refrigeration, OCF Aerosol Sprays, Pipe-in-pipe Insulation
- CASE (Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants & Elastomers)
