In terms of product type, the Polyether Polyols segment is estimated to be the largest segment during the forecast period:

In terms of application, the global Polyol market can be segregated into Polyether Polyols and Polyester Polyols. The Polyether Polyols segment of the Polyol market is projected to be the largest, as it is the critical raw material for manufacturing polyurethane foams which are used in different applications in the construction and automotive industries. Polyurethane foams are majorly used in manufacturing furniture, carpets, vehicle's interior, car seats, and others. They are majorly used in making rigid polyurethane foams. These polyols are responsible for rebound properties, wear and tear resistance, and hydrolytic stability of rigid polyurethane foams.

 By Application, the Flexible Foam is expected to be the largest segment:

Both polyether and polyester polyol can be used to make flexible foam. Flexible foam is the largest application segment of the polyols market and accounting for a volume share of over 30.0%.

Flexible foams are widely utilized as cushioning material for furniture, bedding and mattresses, seating, and other soft products in several end-use industries such as furniture and mattress, automotive, handbag and luggage, footwear and textile, home appliances, engineering, and packaging. Elastomers have emerged as the fastest-growing application segment over the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing segment in the forecast period:

The Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share of the Polyol market. It is also the fastest-growing segment. The region is also projected to witness a higher product demand in the coming years on account of increasing consumption in end-user industries. Key Polyol markets in Asia- Pacific include China, Japan, India, South Korea, Thailand, and Indonesia.
