Segmentation by product and analysis of the polyalkylene glycol market

  • Polypropylene glycol
  • Polyethylene glycol
PU foams are available in different forms such as rigid, spray, and flexible. These foams require poly propylene glycol to permit the dry composite to blend with other ingredients. In addition, they are used in the formulation of de-icing agents. The demand for polypropylene as lubricants from the automotive and aviation industries is positively influencing the market’s growth in the poly propylene glycol segment.

Segmentation by application and analysis of the polyalkylene glycol market
  • PU foams
  • Lubricants
  • Personal care
  • Pharmaceuticals
The demand for polyalkylene glycol from the PU foams sector is increasing because PU foams with polyalkylene glycol provides long-term, accurate, and high-performance insulation and offers better moisture resistance. There is an increase in the demand for PU foams from construction, refrigeration, automotive, and aerospace industries. The expansion in these industries will further boost the need for PU foams, which in turn, will propel the market’s growth.
