An Overview Of The Global Market for Polyester Polyols - 4th Edition

An Overview Of The Global Market for Polyester Polyols - 4th Edition

IAL Consultants is pleased to announce the publication of the fourth edition of its twovolume study on the global market for polyester polyols. Aliphatic Polyester Polyols are covered in Volume 1; Aromatic Polyester Polyols in Volume 2.

The geographic scope of the study is as follows:

  • EMEA (Western Europe Central Europe,
  • 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 (aliphatic/aromatic) polyester polyols. In addition, polyester 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. Research for this study was carried out in the second half of 2015. Data is provided for the year 2015, in addition to forecasts for 2020. The study reviews the consumption of both aromatic and aliphatic polyester polyols by major polyurethane end-use sector. Although each volume essentially follows the same structure and lay-out, end-use segments differ accordingly.
