Polyols Market Competitive Analysis
Polyols Market appears to be highly competitive and diversified with the presence of many well-established players having the regional and global presence. Innovation, mergers & acquisitions, and brand reinforcement remain the key trends for leading players in the market.
The term, Polyols is used in both, food and polymer chemistry sector. Polyols are predominantly used in polymer chemistry to manufacture polyurethanes which are largely used to manufacture polyurethane foams. An important end-product of the polyol is the polyurethane foam, the usage of which is growing rapidly in the market.
Polyurethane foam is mainly used in flexible foam application, including furniture & bedding and the automobile interiors and footwear. Polyurethane foams are also used extensively for insulation applications in building & construction, automotive, furnishing, electronics, and packaging industry among other.
In the Food sector Polyols are known as sugar alcohols, carbohydrates that occur naturally in berries, apples, plums, and other foods. Sugar alcohols also are produced commercially from carbohydrates such as sucrose, glucose, and starch and are used in the preparation of low-calorie foods. Polyols are incompletely absorbed and metabolized in the body and contribute fewer calories than sugar. They do raise blood glucose levels after a meal but not as high as table sugar does.
Most polyols are approximately half as sweet as sucrose and hence are used in the preparation of chewing gums, candies, ice cream, baked goods, fruit spreads, fillings and frostings, canned fruits, beverages, yogurt and table-top sweeteners.
Polyols are also used in medicines and pharmaceutical products such as cough syrups and throat lozenges along with toothpastes and mouthwashes. Alongside, adding sweetness, polyols perform a variety of functions such as adding volume and texture to food, preventing the browning that occurs during heating, and retaining the moisture in foods.
With such broadened applications areas, it is needless to say that the polyols market is growing exponentially on the global platform.
Recognizing the kind of growth, the market witnesses currently, Market Research Future (MRFR) has published a detailed study report giving out the market forecast for the period 2017 – 2023. In its analysis, MRFR asserts that the global Polyols market is expected to get evaluated colossally at a modest CAGR during the review period of 2017-2023.
Burgeoning sectors such as construction and automotive industries are the major consumers of polyols. Over the past few years, the pharmaceutical industry has become one of the prominent end-user sectors of polyols, generating huge demand. Augmented demand across some prominent sectors is the key factor driving the market growth of polyols worldwide.
Currently, end-user industries of polyols, such as automotive, construction, electronics & electrical are growing, and hence, growth trends in the production and supply of these industries are expected to impact the market growth positively. Furthermore, factors influencing the growth of these end-user industries are bound to impact the market growth of polyols too.
On the other hand, factors such as commodification of the product along with the price volatility of raw materials; are estimated to restrict the market growth during the forecast period. Nevertheless, increasing applications of Polyols in the packaging sector are expected to provide impetus to the market growth to an extent.
