We are pleased to announce the publication of the fifth edition of its two- volume study on the global market for   polyester polyols. Aliphatic Polyester Polyols are covered in Volume 1; Aromatic Polyester Polyols in Volume 2.

The geographic scope of the study is as follows:
• EMEA (Western Europe, Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa)
• The Americas (North, Central and South)
• Asia Pacific (China and Rest of Asia Pacific)

Using the latest available information from official and industry sources, the reports summarise the production of relevant polyurethane products and their associated demand for (aliphatic/aromatic) polyester polyols. In addition, polyester polyol manufacturing capacities across each region are stated.

The volumes follow the same format for ease of comparison. A more comprehensive breakdown is provided on the right-hand side of this leaflet.

Research for this study was carried out in late 2018 and early 2019. Data is provided for the year 2018, in addition to forecasts for 2023.

The study reviews the consumption of both aromatic and aliphatic polyester polyols by major polyurethane end-use sectors. Although each volume essentially follows the same structure and layout, end-use segments differ accordingly.

Segments covered per volume are as follows:

Volume 1 - Aliphatic Polyester Polyols End-Use Segments
• Flexible Polyester Slabstock Foam
• Elastomers
• Paints & Coatings
• Adhesives & Sealants

Volume 2 - Aromatic Polyester Polyols End-Use Segments
• PU/PIR Rigid Foam (Panels and Boards, Slabstock, Rigid Spray Foam, Refrigeration, OCF Aerosol Sprays, Pipe-in-pipe Insulation)
• CASE (Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants & Elastomers)
