As per Technavio, the use of alternative blowing agents will have a positive impact on the market and contribute to its growth significantly over the forecast period. This research report also analyzes other important trends and market drivers that will affect market growth over 2018-2022.

Global Polyols Market: Use of Alternative Blowing Agents

Growing concerns over the environment have led to phasing out of blowing agents such as HCFCs and HFCs. This has compelled end-users to look for substitutes to manufacture spray PU foams, leading to a strong demand for pentane, methyl formate, dimethoxymethane, and methylal as substitutes for HCs and HFCs. The increased use of such blowing agents is expected to positively impact the growth of the global polyol market during the forecast period.

“Innovation in polyurethane foams and the increasing demand for bio-based polyols will further boost market growth during the forecast period,” says a senior analyst at Technavio.
