Innovations in polyurethane (PU) is one of the major trends being witnessed in the global polyester polyol market 2019-2023. Research firms and other companies are constantly developing new forms of PU foams, including photo cross-linkable PU, to cater to the high demand for PU foams in several applications. Some innovations in PU include patent issued by KURARAY through its investors for highly durable polyester polyols. The patent states that PU can be used in paints, adhesives, coatings, elastomers, artificial/synthetic leather, foams, and resins cured by activation energy rays. Therefore, innovations in PU will drive the demand for polyester polyols during the forecast period.

According to Technavio analysts, one of the key factors contributing to the growth of the global polyester polyol market is the increasing demand for polyols from the automotive and construction industries:
Global polyester polyol market: Increasing demand for polyols from the automotive and construction industries
PU foam is extensively being used in several end-user industry verticals, mainly automotive, construction, and paints and coatings industries. PU foams are widely used in the production of automotive components such as wiper cowls, side skirts, bumpers, roll pans, and also interior components of cars such as including seats, armrests, headrests, dashboards, roof liners, and instrumental panels. PU foams are also used in the construction industry to form a layer of insulation, and it provides weatherproof sealants as well as helps cover irregular shapes. As the polyester polyol is one of the key ingredients used to manufacture PU foams, the surging demand for PU foams in the automotive and construction industry will fuel the growth of the polyester polyol market.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on plastics, polymers, and elastomers, “Apart from the increasing demand for polyols in the automotive and construction industries, factors such as the increasing demand for bio-based products and the expansion of plant capacities are expected to fuel the growth of the polyester polyol market.”
