Browse through the TOC of the Global Polyether Polyols Market report to get an idea of the in-depth analysis provided. It also provides a glimpse of the segmentation in the market, which is supported by various tables and figures.
Polyether polyols with higher molecular weight (generally more than 3,000) are mainly used in the manufacturing of polyurethanes (flexible foam). Polyether polyols contain an ether chain and have two or more hydroxyl groups. These are water-soluble polymers with a wide range of compositions. Polyether polyols are manufactured through the catalytic addition reaction of cyclic ether or epoxides. Ethene oxides, propene oxides, and butene oxides are preferred in the manufacture of polyether polyols. The initiators used in the manufacturing process include amines, glycols, sucrose, water, and polyols.
Polyurethanes (PU) constitute the largest application of polyether polyols. Polyurethane is one of the most widely used polymers in the world, finding applications in almost all modern industries. These are primarily made by the reaction of diisocyanates with polyols and other chemicals. Owing to their large-scale use in manufacturing polyurethanes, polyether polyols are high volume products. Growth in the polyurethane market is driven by many factors such as growing end-use segments, increasing environment sustainability needs, unique physical properties of PU, and improved standards of living. This is expected to advance the global polyether polyols market.

Asia-Pacific and Europe dominate the polyurethane market and together accounted for a large share of the global polyurethane demand. North America and Western Europe are mature markets and are expected to grow at a sluggish rate. However, Asia-Pacific, Eastern Europe, and South America are expected to drive the demand for polyurethanes, and thus polyether polyols, in the coming decade as end-use industries such as construction, automotive, and electronics are still developing and expecting robust growth.
