Global Polycaprolactone Polyol Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Polycaprolactone Polyol is a type of polyol that is used in the production of polyurethanes. It is important because it helps to create foams with good physical properties, such as high thermal insulation and sound absorption.


Foam is a three dimensional cellular polymeric material that is created from numerous tiny bubbles. The process of creating foam involves the use of air or inert gas, which is passed through the liquid under pressure, causing the formation of cells with air or inert gas in between them. These cells are then collected and heated to create a stable structure.


Adhesives are used in polycaprolactone polyol (PCL) market for various applications such as packaging, construction and automotive. They have a wide range of applications due to their unique properties such as high strength, excellent thermal stability and resistance to chemicals & solvents. The global adhesives industry is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period on account of increasing demand from end-use industries including building & construction, electrical & electronics and automotive.

Application Insights:

The industrial application segment led the global polycaprolactone polyol market in 2017, accounting for over 60% of the overall revenue share. The product is widely used in manufacturing a wide range of products including wires & cables, hoses & tubing, footwear soles and coatings. It is also utilized as an additive for improving various performance characteristics such as impact strength, wear resistance and durability in steel wool; heat resistance and stiffness in fiberglass; toughness and abrasion resistance in ceramics; thermal stability (temperature) of plastics; flow ability (viscosity) of paints/coating materials etc.

Polycaprolactone polyol-based products are witnessing growing demand from pharmaceutical industry owing to its excellent biodegradability along with other properties such as chemical inertness towards proteins which makes it suitable for drug delivery applications.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global polycaprolactone polyol market in 2016 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The presence of a large number of manufacturers coupled with growing demand from end-use industries such as automotive, packaging, and construction is anticipated to drive growth. China has emerged as a major consumer owing to rapid industrialization along with an increasing population at both domestic and international levels.

The European region accounted for 20% of global revenue share in 2016 on account of rising product demand from several key application sectors including paints & coatings, adhesives & sealants, pharmaceuticals, electronics manufacturing etc.

In North America there was an increase in consumption due to technological advancements coupled with increased spending power among consumers especially millennials which are fueling overall economic development across countries such as U.S.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from end-use industries such as automotive, construction, and medical sectors
  • Rising awareness about the benefits of Polycaprolactone Polyol among consumers
