The Global Production Of Polycarbonate diol increases from 21.9 K MT in 2012 to 29.3 K MT in 2016

Due to technical barriers, the polycarbonate diol industry has a rather high dispersion. Around 66% of the market share is covered by the four leading player named UBE Chemical, TOSOH, Bayer and AsahiKASEI. Ube Industries set up polycarbonate diol facility in Thailand that started production in 2015 and AsahiKASEI built polycarbonate diol plant in China which it markets as Duranol in 2013.
The global production of polycarbonate diol increases from 21.9 K MT in 2012 to 29.3 K MT in 2016, at a CAGR of more than 7.5%. In 2016, the global polycarbonate diol market is led by Europe, capturing about 49.37% of global polycarbonate diol production. Japan is the second-largest region-wise market with 30.32% global production share. And Europe and China are the main consumption market, representing about 21.77% and 23.03% in 2016, respectively.
Polycarbonate diol is an intermediate used in high-performance polyurethanes (PUs). It is increasingly well-known and used for a wide range of polyurethane coatings, adhesives and elastomers. Globally, the polycarbonate diol market is mainly driven by growing demand for polyurethane elastomers, which accounts for nearly 42.63% of total downstream consumption of polycarbonate diol in global.
