Graft polyols are a stable colloidal dispersion of styrene acrylonitrile polymer particles in polyether polyols. These are widely used in the manufacture of flexible polyurethane foams. Graft polyols improve the load-bearing properties of flexible foam by modifying the viscosity and density. They also impart high resilience in polyurethane foams. Polyurethane foams formulated from graft polyols are extensively used in carpets, cushions, mattresses, furniture, automotive seating, and protective packaging. Hence, graft polyols are employed in numerous end-user industries such as furniture, automotive, packaging, and others. Asia Pacific held the largest share of the graft polyols market in terms of demand, followed by Europe and North America in the past few years. Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the global graft polyols market during the forecast period.
