Bio-based polyols are increasingly being used in replacement of existing petrochemical based polyols as they have similar structure and properties. Bio-based materials like soy-based polyols can offer many advantages over the conventional polyols in the regard of reduction in petroleum dependence, sustainability, and reduction in potential cost and they are also often characterized by less sensitivity to hydrolysis and high thermal stability. Burgeoning need to derive products from renewable resources is driving the bio-based polyols market.

The growing need for polyurethane foams in a number of industries such as construction and automotive is boosting the demand for bio-based polyols. Manufacturers are introducing bio-based polyols and investing in this technology to gain a competitive edge in the market. These polyols help in meeting the growing market demand for high performance and 100% renewable building blocks for coating & adhesives. Furthermore, the bio-based polyols are being used because they reflect a positive light of environment protection, along with the lightweight targets in the transportation industry and renewability. Geographically, Asia Pacific holds a significant share in the market due to the growing automotive industry and construction activities in the region. However, the rising demand for the biodiesel has driven up the subsequent cost of the bio-based polyols.
