According to the most recent market research published by Future Market Insights, the global Polytetrahydrofuran (Poly THF) Market is valued at US$ 5,524.8 Million in 2022 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.1% between 2022 and 2032.

Polytetrahydrofuran (poly THF), also known as poly tetramethylene ether glycol or poly tetramethylene oxide, is produced through catalyzed polymerization of tetrahydrofuran. It is a white solid waxy substance that melts at room temperature and turns into a colorless, clear, and viscous liquid.

This compound is insoluble in water. Polytetrahydrofuran is widely used in the manufacturing of polyurethane resins and elastic fibers. Some of the famous brands of Polytetrahydrofuran compounds are Poly THF (BASF SE) and Tetrathane (Invista).

Based on application, spandex fibers are expected to dominate the global polytetrahydrofuran market. Spandex fibers are mainly used during the manufacturing of apparel including hosiery, bandages, baby diapers, athletic outfits, and home furnishings.
