Solvent Market by Type (Ketones, Esters, Alcohols, Glycol Ethers, Aromatics, Aliphatics), Application (Paints & Coatings, Adhesives, Pharmaceuticals, Printing Inks, Personal Care), Source (Bio & Green, Conventional) - Global Forecast to 2021
“Growing automotive and construction industry to drive the solvents market”
The market size of solvents is estimated to be valued at USD 19.35 billion in 2016 and is projected to reach USD 28.25 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 7.9% from 2016 to 2021. The conventional solvents market is largely driven by the growing construction and automotive industries in countries such as China, Canada, Germany, U.K., U.S., France, India, Spain, Sweden, and Turkey, among others Whereas the bio & green solvents segment is driven by environmental regulations to reduce Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and their growing penetration in end-use applications such as cleaning and pharmaceuticals. Though, switching by industries to bio & green solvents is a market restraint for the conventional solvents market. Another restraint for bio & green solvents is their high cost, and performance issues.
“Bio & Green Solvents estimated to be fastest-growing source type for solvents in terms of volume, from 2016 to 2021”
Bio & green solvents have low or negligible VOC emissions and are non-ozone depleting. These solvents are not harmful for the environment and human health. The stringent safety regulations regarding lowering the impact of VOC emissions in countries such as U.S., Canada, U.K., and France, among others, drives the demand for bio & green solvents. Also, growing public awareness towards a cleaner and greener environment drives the bio & green solvents market.
