Global Polyester Polyol Market 2019-2023

Global Polyester Polyol Market 2019-2023

About this market

With the consistent innovations in Polyurethane (PU), there has been the formation of several PU foams, including photo cross-linkable PU by companies and research to cater the growing demand for PU foams in multiple applications. Huntsman International acquired Demilec, a company that offers a registered product named DEMILEC APX. The product is an innovative new spray PU foam insulation that insulates and air seals homes, schools, and buildings. These innovations in PU is triggering the growth of the polyester polyol market. Technavio ‘s analysts predict the market to grow at a CAGR of about 6 % by 2023.

Market Overview

Increasing demand for polyols in the automotive and construction industries

Polyester polyol is one of the key ingredients used in the manufacturing of PU foam. PU foam is used in many end-user industries such as automotive construction, and paint and coating. The development of PU foam for insulation has positively affected the growth of the global polyester polyol market.

Increase in raw material prices

The price of polyester polyols is directly proportional to the supply and prices of raw materials like phthalic acid and adipic acid. The increase in raw materials directly impacts the price of polyester polyols and polyester polyol-based PU.
