Published on 2013-04-29. Author : SpecialChem

IAL Consultants is pleased to announce the publication of the third edition of its two volume study on the global market for polyester polyols. Aliphatic Polyester Polyols are covered in Volume 1; Aromatic Polyester Polyols in Volume 2.

The geographic scope of the study is as follows:
  • EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa)
  • The Americas (North (including Mexico) and South America)
  • Asia Pacific (China and Rest of Asia Pacific)

Using the latest available information from official and industry sources, the reports summarize the production of relevant polyurethane products and their associated demand for (aliphatic/aromatic) polyester polyols. In addition, polyester polyol manufacturing capacities across each region are stated and information on raw materials/precursors is given.

The volumes follow the same format for ease of comparison. A more comprehensive breakdown is provided on the right hand-side. Research for this study was carried out in the second half of 2012. Data is provided for the year 2012, in addition to forecasts for 2017.

The study reviews the consumption of both aromatic and aliphatic polyester polyols by major polyurethane end-use. Although each volume essentially follows the same structure and lay-out, end-use segments differ accordingly.

Segments covered per volume are as follows:
Volume 1 - Aliphatic Polyester Polyols End-Use Segments
  • Flexible Polyester Slabstock Foam
  • Elastomers
  • Paints & Coatings
