Vapor Degreasing Solvents Market: Introduction
The vapor phase degreasing process involves the cleaning of metal parts by condensing solvent vapors on work pieces. The technique generally uses the hot vapors of the vapor degreasing solvent to remove soils, oils, greases, and waxes in particular. The metal parts are heated by condensing the solvent vapors to the boiling point of the degreasing solvent, and then they are dried instantly as withdrawn from the vapor zone. Most common chlorinated solvents need stabilizers to perform successfully in vapor degreasing.
Sometimes, it is difficult to clean crevices and holes using aqueous solutions. Chlorinated solvent vapors are used in such cases as they are capable of reaching inaccessible spaces in convoluted parts to clean them. Therefore, the use of vapor degreasing solvents is increasing in the electronic industry.
Vapor Degreasing Solvents Market: Dynamics
The relatively reasonable pricing of nPB as compared to other solvent types has been driving nPB usage to some extent. Besides, the non-flammability of nPB and its applicability in the vapor phase degreasing process also drive the demand.
Market Growth Analysis
Disclaimer: This data is only a representation. Actual data may vary and will be available in the report.
Nowadays, end users are shifting from chlorinated solvents to fluorinated solvents, which are more environment friendly. For example, HFE and HFO have near zero ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential). This is one of the prominent trends observed in the vapor degreasing solvents market.
Perchloroethylene (PCE) is widely used in the dry cleaning industry as it is effective in cleaning & degreasing applications and is relatively cheaper. PCE is hazardous to human health and is not at all environment-friendly. Attributing to these reasons, many cleaning solvent manufactures prefer using glycol ether over PCE as a solvent in cleaning and degreasing purposes. These solvents are environment-friendly as compared to perchloroethylene.
Chlorinated solvents, such TCE, PCE and METH, are known to be carcinogenic and hence, are heavily regulated by North American and European regulatory bodies. Their usage is restricted to closed equipment applications only. This will adversely impact their market potential in the near future. Also, volatility in the prices of vapor degreasing solvents is expected to hamper the market growth during the forecast period.
Vapor Degreasing Solvents Market: Regional Outlook
Fluorinated solvents can be used as a direct drop-in replacement for existing vapor degreasing equipment, thereby eliminating the equipment replacement or retraining cost. Fluorinated solvents are nonflammable, quick to evaporate and SNAP approved. They also have zero or nearly zero ozone depletion potential, low global warming potential and release no hazardous air pollutants. Attributing to these favorable characteristics, the demand for vapor degreasing solvents is expected to increase significantly during the forecast period in North America and Europe.
Asia Pacific is expected to witness a surge in the demand for fluorinated as well as chlorinated solvents for vapor degreasing application during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the low cost of chlorinated and fluorinated solvents, coupled with the growing use of these solvents over the aqueous cleaning process.
Latin America and Middle East and Africa (MEA) are expected to witness sluggish demand for vapor degreasing solvents as compared to other regions.
