The global natural oil polyols (NOP) market is expected to reach USD 11.30 billion by 2024, according to a new report


As per the report by Grand View Research, Inc., the Natural Oil Polyols Market is poised to rise to a valuation of USD 11.30 billion and is estimated to witness a CAGR of 7.3% over the forecast period (2016-2024). Rising demand for eco-friendly polymers owing to volatile prices of conventional polymers/plastics is anticipated to propel the natural oil polyols demand in the future.

Castor, soy, sunflower, and palm are foremost vegetable oil sources used as feedstock in the industry. Rising investments in research and development coupled with improving extraction techniques are likely to drive the natural oil polyols growth over the forthcoming period.

The surge in petroleum prices and increasing global demand for a decrease in dependency on petroleum-derived polyurethane is anticipated to drive the demand for NOP in the years to come. On the other hand, increasing rates of natural oil coupled with agricultural uncertainty is likely to hamper the market demand in the years to come.
