The conventional solvent market is negatively affected by the volatile prices of crude oil and it will lead to the growth of the green solvents market. Increasing the application of green solvents in various industries over the past few years is also anticipated to drive the global market. Rebounding the global economy during the forecast period is presumed to assist green solvent end-use industries such as construction, coating, cleaning products, industrial applications, toiletries, and cosmetics. Growing concerns of consumers regarding high VOC contents of conventional solvent has led them to shift their preference in favour of green solvents. Moreover, increasing investment of industry participants in R&D initiatives to develop cheaper and superior green solvents and implementation of several rules and regulations by the Government and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in favouring green solvents are expected to boost the growth of green solvents during the forecast period. The global market is expected to receive more support from efforts like the Montreal Protocol to protect the environment.

Green solvents generally require more operational time due to having a slower reaction rate compared to conventional solvents. Technological difficulties, as well as more operation time and Requirement of the high investment amount to start the production of green solvents, are expected to hamper the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Key Findings:

  • Based on the product type, the esters segment expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 8.3% during the forecast period.
  • Based on the application, the paints & coating segment accounted for almost 40% market share in 2018
  •  In 2018, Asia Pacific is expected to hold the highest market share of 31% in the global green solvents market

Recent News:

  • In April 2019, Merck, a leading science and technology company has launched CyreneTM — a sustainable dipolar-approtic solvent produced from a renewable source of cellulose in two steps. In response to the need for solvents to meet stricter regulatory requirements for both safety of workers and environmental sustainability, the bio-derived alternative has been developed. The product is targeted at increasing demand for greener alternatives to Dimethylformamide (DMF) and NMP.
