DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Green and Bio Polyols Market - Global Forecast to 2021" report to their offering.
The global green and bio polyols market is projected to reach USD 4.71 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 9.5%. The market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.9% and reach 1.74 million tons by 2021, by volume. Several factors, such as the eco-friendly and sustainable nature of bio polyols, consistent supply of bio-based feedstock, and crude oil price fluctuations affect the green and bio polyols market directly as well as indirectly.
Moreover, the growing penetration of bio-based polyols in the automotive and packaging industry and recycling of polyols from foam-based waste are expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the growth of the green and bio polyols market. Higher costs of green and bio polyols as compared to those of conventional polyols, and increasing crop productivity causing a negative environmental impact, such as increasing the carbon footprint and depletion of nutrients from the soil, are the major factors expected to restrain the growth of the green and bio polyols market globally.
The by type market for polyether polyols was the fastest growing in the green and bio polyols market in 2015. The rapid growth in demand for polyether polyols is attributed to their extensive use in major end-use markets such as furniture & bedding, construction and automotive industries, which demand flexible and rigid polyurethanes on a large scale. As polyether polyols are extensively used in the manufacture of polyurethane flexible foams, the market of polyether polyols is expected to grow rapidly.
