The green & bio polyol market growing at a CAGR of 10.8% is expected to generate global revenue of $3,077.0 million by 2018. The demand for these polyols is driven by factors such as availability of raw materials (Natural oils, recycled PET/polyurethanes), increasing prices of crude oil leading to price rise in conventional polyols and lower carbon footprint leading to a higher sustainability for green & bio polyols.

The report considers two types green & bio polyols that are commonly used. These are polyester polyols and polyether polyols. Green polyols are those that are synthesized from recycled polyurethanes and PET (polyethylene terepthalate). Bio-based polyols are those that are synthesized from natural oils such as corn, castor, canola, rapeseed, palm, soybean, etc. The major applications for these polyols include polyurethane foams (flexible & rigid), coatings, adhesives and sealants. Important end-user industries consuming Green & bio polyols include construction, transportation, packaging, furniture/bedding, carpet, etc.

North America is currently the largest consumer of green & bio polyols. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.0% in the next five years. Corn and soybean are the most commonly used feedstock to manufacture bio polyols in North America. Asia-Pacific is currently the fastest growing market for green & bio polyols. Its market revenue is forecasted at $1,023.8 million by 2018.

Polyurethane flexible foams are the fastest growing applications for green & bio polyols. The market for the same is estimated to generate revenue of $1,104.2 million by 2018. Polyurethane flexible foams are widely used in automotive industry to manufacture auto seat backrests, headrests, armrests, etc. The foam is also used for household applications such as cushions in furniture. Transportation industry with a CAGR of 12.2% is the fastest growing end-user consumer of green & bio polyols. A major proportion of this demand is attributed to green & bio polyol consumption by the automotive industry.

Cargill Inc. (U.S.), BASF SE (Germany), Emery Oleochemicals (H) SDN BHD, etc. are major manufacturers of bio-based polyols. Petopur GmBH (Germany), Rampf Ecosystems (Germany), etc. are major manufacturers of green/recycled polyols.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions.

In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage.

An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
