Polyether polyols are a class of organic chemicals that contain multiple ether linkages (polyether) and have multiple hydroxyl groups as terminal functional groups (polyol). Within the plastic industry, polyether polyols are classified as thermoset resins. Polyols are required for the manufacturing of polyurethanes, which are extensively used in automotive, construction, refrigeration, and several other industries. These are produced by the catalyzed addition of epoxides, mainly propylene oxide or ethylene oxide, to an initiator having active hydrogens. Polyether polyol market is expected to witness strong growth in future, mainly due to the growing demand for its derivatives in applications in automotive and construction sector. The flexible foams application segment is expected to lead the market in coming years, followed by rigid foams and other CASE applications.

 

The Americas chemical industry is a significant part of the country’s economy. The U.S. is the largest consumer of polyols, followed by Brazil and others. The polyether polyols market witnessed a decline in its demand in Americas in recent years, owing to the decline in activities in construction, automotive, and electronics industries. With time, the industry has undergone massive globalization and consolidation with heavy capital investments and development projects to maintain its position in the global market. As the key application industries, such as construction, automotive, and electronics industries gradually recover from the impacts of the global recession, the demand for polyether polyols is expected to increase in this region.

 

With the shale reserves exploration activities at their peak, the polyether polyol market is expected to grow, as most of the raw materials required for the polyether polyols production is derived from crude oil. The U.S. dominates the overall market and will continue to do so during the forecast period. It is estimated that the U.S. consumed around 973.8 KT of polyether polyol in 2014, which is projected to reach 1,267.9 KT by 2020 with a CAGR of 4.5%. . Brazil is expected to register the highest CAGR of 5.9% among all countries during the forecast period.

 

In 2014, around 638.6 KT of flexible foam was consumed in Americas, and its demand is projected to grow at 5.6% annually from 2014 to 2020. The flexible foam market in Americas was valued at $1,500.8 million in 2014, and is projected to reach $2,350.6 million by 2020, at a CAGR of 7.8% from 2014 to 2020. The U.S. and Brazil were the largest contributors in the flexible foam market.

 

The key players in the Americas Polyether Polyols market include Perstorp AB (Sweden), The Dow Chemicals Company (U.S.), Bayer AG (Netherlands), Stepan Company (U.S.), Vertellus Specialties (U.S.), and others.
