Polyol demand in India is projected to grow with a healthy CAGR of 5.05% for the forecast period. Polyols are an important group of functional resin which are used in the manufacturing of a large number of products. Polyols are used as a raw material for polyurethane manufacturing. The growing construction and automotive sector will have a higher consumption of Polyurethanes, thus driving the polyol demand.
There are mainly two kinds of Polyols, Polyether Polyol and Polyester Polyol, among which Polyether Polyol is the most demanded as it is used in the manufacture of Polyurethane foams. Subsequently, increasing demand for Polyol is majorly dependent on the end user industries for manufacturing of Polyurethane foams.
Polyol is produced by utilizing Propylene Oxide and Ethylene Oxide. Hence, the production and availability of these two products largely affects the demand and supply of Polyol in India. Limited availability of Propylene Oxide used as a feedstock for Polyol in India is one of the major reasons for Polyol’s low production in the country.
Additionally, a growing preference for Polyol in roofing and footwear applications along with extensive demand as a refrigerant in refrigeration industries is expected to drive the domestic demand for Polyol during the forecast years.
Due to growing environmental concerns, a recent shift in the India Polyol market is to increase consumption of bio-based polyurethanes. Several government initiatives have been taken to increase the usage of bio-based polymers.
Major players operating in the India Polyol market are Manali Petrochemicals limited, Gulshan Polyol limited, Annu industries limited, Shakun industries, Aether Industries Limited, Amrit Polychem Pvt Ltd, Vithal Castor Pvt Ltd., Expanded polymer System and others.

The pricing of Polyol is largely dependent on fluctuations in crude oil, and other upstream sources.
To extract data for the India Polyol market, primary research surveys were conducted with Polyol manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, wholesalers and end users. While interviewing, the respondents were also inquired about their competitors. Through this technique, ChemAnalyst was able to include manufacturers that could not be identified due to the limitations of secondary research. Moreover, ChemAnalyst analyzed various end user segments and projected a positive outlook for the India Polyol market over the coming years.
ChemAnalyst calculated Polyol’s demand in India by analyzing the historical data and demand forecast which was carried out considering imported styrene prices, a monomer used for the production of Polyol. ChemAnalyst sourced these values from industry experts and company representatives and externally validated them by analyzing historical sales data of respective manufacturers to arrive at the overall market size. Various secondary sources such as company websites, association reports, annual reports, etc., were also studied by ChemAnalyst.
Key Target Audience:
