The "Global Propylene Oxide Market 2017-2021" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

The global propylene oxide market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 3.71% during the period 2017-2021.

The report, Global Propylene Oxide Market 2017-2021, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is advances in technology. Propylene oxide is used as an intermediate in the manufacture of many chemical products, such as propylene glycols and polyether polyols. However, the production processes involved in the manufacture of propylene oxide, chlorohydrin, and styrene monomer process have many disadvantages. For example, the chlorohydrin process generates an enormous amount of salt water waste and chlorinated by-products.

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is the rise in the demand for polyurethane applications. Polyurethanes are made from propylene oxides. The polyurethane market mainly drives the global propylene oxide because of the demand from its end-users and its various applications. It has unique properties when compared with that of rubber, metal, or plastic.
