Report Overview: 

IMARC Group’s report, titled “Polyols Manufacturing Plant Project Report 2024: Industry Trends, Plant Setup, Machinery, Raw Materials, Investment Opportunities, Cost and Revenue,” provides a complete roadmap for setting up a polyols manufacturing plant. It covers a comprehensive market overview to micro-level information such as unit operations involved, raw material requirements, utility requirements, infrastructure requirements, machinery and technology requirements, manpower requirements, packaging requirements, transportation requirements, etc. The polyols project report provides detailed insights into project economics, including capital investments, project funding, operating expenses, income and expenditure projections, fixed costs vs. variable costs, direct and indirect costs, expected ROI and net present value (NPV), profit and loss account, financial analysis, etc.

Polyols Market Analysis:

The polyols market is experiencing significant growth, driven by the increasing demand and applications across various industries like automotive, furniture, and construction. It is a key component for polyurethanes production, which is later used to produce coatings, flexible foams, and rigid foams. The huge demand by construction industries for manufacturing insulation materials has boosted the polyols market.

For instance, PTT Global Chemical Public Company Ltd. manufactures flexible slab stock polyols, polymer polyols (POP), and high resilience polyols. It produces rigid polyols which are to be used as thermal and air migration barriers. The company had annual revenue of 616,635 million Baht in 2023, which is equivalent to USD 168,736 million.

Another prime reason for polyols market growth is the increasing demand for lightweight and fuel-efficient vehicles. The automotive industry utilizes polyurethane foams for interior and seating components of the vehicle. According to the Department of Energy, lightweight materials increase the vehicle efficiency. 10% reduction in vehicle weight can result in 6%-8% fuel economy improvement. Use of lightweight and advanced materials can save more than 5 million gallons of fuel annually by 2030 in U.S. This has caused the expansion of polyols usage in the automotive sector, thereby boosting its market growth. According to industry reports, the U.S. lightweight automotive body panels market is predicted to rise to USD 191,369.2 million by 2033.

Polyols Market Trends:

Sustainability Trends and Environmental Regulations

Rising environmental awareness and stricter government policies has pushed the market to adopt bio-based polyols, which are replacing traditional polyols made of petrochemicals. Bio-based polyols are eco-friendly as they are composed from renewable sources like soyabeans, vegetable oils, or corn. For instance, Emery Oleochemicals developed a range of bio-based polyols under the brand name EMEROX. These are renewable polyester polyols which are based on renewable dibasic acids and other naturally derived acids. It has high renewable content of 45-99%. EMEROX 14050 contains 80% bio-based content while EMEROX 14270, 14280, 14355, 14371, and 14372 contains 99% bio-based content.

Another leading chemical company Cargill has manufactured BiOH polyols which are produced from the renewable sources like soyabean oil. It is used in making flexible foams for furniture, mattress, pillows, etc. This polyol has 5-20% renewable content. For every I million pounds of BiOH polyols used, over 2050 barrels of crude oils are saved.

Increasing Demand in Furniture Industry

The increasing consumer demand for durable and comfortable furniture, supported by the rapid expansion and advancement in the furniture sector, is boosting the demand for polyols in producing bedding and cushioning components. Flexible polyurethane foam is produced from polyols, which provides excellent comfort and resilience. Hence, companies consider it as an ideal material for bedding applications.

For instance, the company Carpenter Co. uses polyester polyol named CARPOL PES-265 and PES-295 in various polyisocyanurate (PIR) and polyurethane (PUR) systems, which enhances fire retardancy due to its high aromatic content and higher insulation for improved energy efficiency.

Reciticel, a Belgium based company, produces PU foam which is flexible polyurethane foam for its wide range of uses in mattresses, upholstered furniture, and vehicles. Nearly 90% of the mattresses produced in European Union contains polyurethane foam. European Union’s production of flexible polyurethane foam is of around 900,000 tons per annum.

Latest Industry News:

  • In 2023, BASF began the production of first bio-based polyol called Sovermol in Manglore, India. This product is formulated to serve fast-growing demand for eco-friendly products for applications in new energy vehicles (NEV), wind turbines, flooring, and protective industrial coatings in Asia Pacific.
  • In 2023, Recticel Group, a company group for flexible foams, insulation, bedding, and automotive business, completed their Europe-wide research project named “PUReSmart” in which for the first time, a flexible foam sample was produced from a fully recycled polyol and toluene diisocyanate (TDI), respectively.  This was done to develop a technology to chemically recycle the products and covert polyurethane into a high-quality recycled material.
