Research and Markets: Global Polyols Market 2015-2019 – Cost-Effective For Transport

December 8, 2015
By Business Wire News


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Global Polyols Market 2015-2019” report to their offering.

This new report on the Global Polyols Market predicts growth due to the cost-effective nature of the polyurethane packaging foams. These foams form fitting cushions that uniquely secure and protect items during transit. This makes them ideal for transporting all sorts of products, from household goods to huge industrial parts.

The report states that, when produced on a commercial scale, CO2 costs are favorable and they are cheaper than petroleum-based raw materials. The addition of CO2 in the existing production process of polyols produces foam with greater tear and higher tensile strengths, thereby increasing the weight bearing capacity. This results in improved cohesive strength and weather-resistance in adhesives and coatings.

This report includes a comprehensive discussion on the market, an extensive coverage on various types of production techniques, applications, and demand-supply dynamics in various geographies. The report provides comments on both the existing market landscape and its growth prospects over the forecast period. The report further includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

The analysts forecast the global polyols market to grow at a CAGR of 8.91% by revenue over the period 2014-2019.
