The Green Polyol & Bio Polyol Market by Type (Polyester & Polyether), Application (Rigid/flexible PU Foam, Coating, Adhesive & Sealant), End-user & Geography

Global Trends & Forecasts to 2018

DUBLIN, IRELAND--(Marketwired - March 6, 2014) - Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Green Polyol & Bio Polyol Market by Type (Polyester & Polyether), Application (Rigid/flexible PU Foam, Coating, Adhesive & Sealant), End-user (Construction, Transportation, Packaging, Furniture & Carpet) & Geography - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2018" report to their offering.

This report on green & bio polyol includes two different types of polyols - polyester polyols and polyether polyols. Bio polyols are a category of polyols that are synthesized from natural oils such as soya, castor, rapeseed, corn, canola, palm, etc. Green polyols are synthesized by recycling PET (polyethylene terepthalate) and polyurethanes waste.

Green & bio polyols are used in applications such as polyurethane foams (flexible & rigid), coatings, adhesives, sealants, and others. Its end-user industry includes construction, transportation, carpet, packaging, furniture/bedding, and others. Green & bio polyol are substituting petroleum based conventional polyols owing to advantages such as:

- Availability of raw materials (Natural oils, PET/polyurethanes foam waste)

- Increasing prices of crude oil

- Lower carbon footprint leading to a higher sustainability for Green & bio polyols

The global market for green & bio polyol has grown significantly during the past few years and it is expected to growing at a rapid pace in the next five years, mainly driven by a growing consumption in the Asia-Pacific region.

The market revenue for Green & bio polyols in Asia-Pacific was $463.9 million in 2012. China, Japan, Malaysia, and India are the major markets for these polyols in Asia-Pacific. Other markets in Asia-Pacific include Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, and Thailand. The demand for these polyols in these markets is fueled by demand from end-user industries such as construction, transportations, and consumer durables.
