Green Solvents Market Overview

As per the latest global industry analysis for historical period of 2016-2020 and upcoming assessment period of 2021-2031, the demand for green solvents is expected to grow remarkably with CAGR ranging around 6% to 8%.

The demand for such solvents is anticipated to witness such significant growth owing to rapid rise in awareness towards use of eco-friendly products among consumers over some recent years.

Solvents finds variety of applications including in Paints & Coatings, Pharmaceuticals, Adhesives, Printing Inks, Metal Cleaning, Personal care products, Polymer Manufacturing, Agrochemicals, and various others.

What Is Driving The Demand For Green Solvents?

Solvents finds common usage in the manufacturing of several chemical products. However, the use of solvents is being inhibited substantially in modern chemical formulations owing to the presence of volatile organic compounds (VOC). Increase in stringent regulations over volatile organic compounds (VOC) are hampering the sales of solvents.

Owing to this scenario the demand for eco-friendly solvents, which contain very low to zero VOC content, is increasing at very rapid pace. In addition, growing trend of sustainability and reducing carbon footprints across the globe is also enabling demand.

These products provide alternative to traditional solvents with similar functionality, which compels the manufacturers to promote the use of these solvents and shift their production facilities towards such solvents to reduce carbon footprints.
