Growing automotive sector coupled with rising demand of furniture in industries and residential sector is majorly boosting the market growth. Rising demand of luxury furniture and vehicles owing to rise in disposable income of the potential consumers are driving the market growth. Robust demand from end-use industries owing to excellent load-bearing properties is further boosting the market growth. Additionally, owing to high mechanical strength, resilience and tear resistance, graft polyols are used extensively in carpets, mattress, rugs, and automobile interior accessories.
As per this study, the global graft polyol market was valued USD 755.9 MN (by revenue) in 2017 and is anticipated to reach USD 1,075.5 MN by 2024 with a CAGR of 5.5%. By volume, the market was estimated at XX.X KT in 2017 and is expected to reach XX.X KT by 2024 with a CAGR of X.X%.
Graft polyols, also known as polymer polyols or filled polyols, is a polymer chain that has finely dispersed styrene-acrylonitrile, acrylonitrile or polyurea polymer solids, which are chemically grafted to a high molecular weight polyether backbone. These chemical compounds are used to enhance the load bearing properties of low-density high resilience foams. Graft polyols also increase the toughness of microcellular foams and cast elastomers. The advantages of polymer polyols account for the availability of various functional polyols, from 2 to 8 groups; the equivalent weight can be changed. It has lowered viscosities as compared to other polyesters. The production cost is also low with respect to other aliphatic polyesters. Lastly, the functionality and equivalent weight can be varied as per the need and requirement. The polyurethanes can be flexible, semi-flexible, and rigid in nature.
The furniture industry has remained a major outlet for graft polyols. The revival of the global economy has resulted in increasing demand for furniture for household and as well as commercial premises. Graft polyols based foams are employed in the manufacture of carpets, cushions, furniture seating, mattress, beds, rugs, etc. Graft polyols based foams are mainly employed in the manufacture of automotive seating, and automotive interiors in the automotive sector. Steady growth in the automotive sector is expected to widen demand for graft polyols in various applications. However, volatility in crude oil prices has a considerable impact on raw material prices. This, in turn, hampers the growth of the graft polyols market.
