Natural oil polyols enhance the bio-content in polyurethane, which in turn leads to higher levels of renewable carbon in the product. Polyols are generally derived from petroleum feedstock, however owing to heightened environmental concerns, the trend of deriving polyols from renewable sources is gaining momentum. This TMR report segments the global natural oil polyol market on the basis of type of product and region. On the basis of product type, this market is categorized into sunflower oil, canola oil, palm oil, castor oil, soy oil, and others. The other types of oils are peanut oil, mustard oil, and olive oil. In addition to plant oils, natural oil polyols are also derived from animal oils. However, the demand for animal based polyols is quite less as compared to plant based polyols. 



Flexible, slabstock, and rigid are the different types of polyurethane that are derived from polyols varying in molecular weight and chemical structures. Surfactants, blowing agents, cross linkers, and chain extenders are the key components that are added to polyurethane foams for changing or controlling their flexibility or rigidity.Geographically, this research study segments the global natural oil polyol market into Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, and Rest of the World. Europe and North America are the largest consumers of soy oil polyol whereas Asia Pacific is the largest consumer of palm oil and castor oil polyols. In terms of consumption, North America holds the highest share in the global natural oil polyol market and is expected to retain its dominant position in the forthcoming years.  


Factors supporting the robust growth of the North America natural oil polyol market are high purchasing power of the masses and greater government initiatives, supporting the use of sustainable products.
