The Impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic on the Green and Bio Polyols Industry, Concludes MarketsandMarkets™

The global green and bio polyols market size is estimated at USD 4.4 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 6.9 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 9.5%, between 2022 and 2027. Green and bio polyols are either synthesized from natural oils, such as soya, castor, palm, canola, and sunflower, or natural sources, such as corn and sugar, or Carbon Dioxide (CO2). They are also recycled from polymers, such as polyurethanes (PU) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET). These polyols are used to make PU rigid and flexible foams, and coatings, adhesives, sealants, and elastomers (CASE), which are used in several end-use industries. The green and bio polyols industry comprises polyether polyols and polyester polyols. Green and bio-based polyether polyols are obtained by polycondensation reaction of propane-1,3-diol derived from glycerin, which can be obtained from several plant sources. Bio-based polyester polyols are formed by the condensation of bio-based dicarboxylic acids, such as adipic or succinic acid, with bio-based polyols (propane-1, 3-diol).
