The existence of various automobile manufacturers, along with the rising building and construction industries in Latin America, are expected to drive the industry and propel the substantial growth of the polyols industry. Throughout the region, car manufacturers are extremely competitive and use polyurethane materials to decrease manufacturing costs.

 

Properties and Applications

Polyols are used in polymer chemistry to generate isocyanate reaction polyurethane, primarily used to manufacture polyurethane foam coatings, adhesives and sealants, elastomers, among others. As a consequence of the increased demand for polyurethane in multiple end-users, including the automotive, construction, electronics, furnishing as well as footwear, the global polyol market is witnessing significant growth. Polymeric polyols respond to polyurethanes that are used to produce mattresses, cooling and freezer foam insulation, car and domestic seats, elastomeric shoe soils, fibre (e.g. SPANDEX), as well as adhesives.

Market Analysis

Increasing energy conservation efforts are driving the demand for rigid foams possessing high isolation properties, notably in the construction and building industries. This is anticipated to emerge as a major factor for the global industry growth over the forecast period along with urbanisation. Construction growth is expected to increase product consumption of construction products, like external panels, insulating materials, and housing electronics to meet the demand from the rapidly increasing population, mainly in the Asia Pacific region. The expansion of automotive manufacturing and packaging also contributes to the growth of the market. Insulated buildings and houses help to conserve electricity and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The growing demand for PU-based foams also serves as the key drivers in the electronics and electrical industries. Flexible polyurethane foams are polyol derivatives used in the manufacture of vehicle headliners, headrests, rests of arms, headliners for heating and ventilation. The market is also being driven by the rising production of bio-based polyols.
