Green and Bio-Based Solvents Market - Segmented by Type, Application, and Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2020 - 2025)

Looking to buy the report?

The market for green and bio-based solvents is expected to register a significant growth during the forecast period, 2018 to 2023.The market growth is significantly driven by the shifting focus from conventional solvents to use green and bio-based solvents by the solvent manufacturers and end-user industries to use green and bio-based solvents in order to comply with the stringent regulation on VOC emissions and other hazardous air pollutants.

Stringent Regulation on VOC Emissions and Other Hazardous Air Pollutants

Lower environmental impact resulted from low toxicity, high biodegradability and lower volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is generated during the manufacture of the green and bio-based solvent than a petro chemically based counterpart. Green and bio-based solvents are gaining an increasing share of the industrial solvents market with the help of environmental standards, which are being proposed globally. These solvents are valid replacements for petrochemicals in a number of applications, including removal of metal working fluids, ink & paint removal, adhesive removal, household cleaners, and in the production of semiconductors, where there are stringent environmental regulations.

Paints & Coatings Segment to Dominate the Market

Paints & coatings segment holds the largest share of the global green and bio-based solvents market in 2017. More than 40 percent of the global green and bio-based solvents market is fuelled through the demand from paints and coatings industry. Lactate esters solvents are commonly used green solvents in the paints and coatings industry and particularly ethyl lactate is a fascinating solvent for the coatings industry as it is successfully replaced solvents, like NMP, toluene, acetone, and xylene. The significantly growing paints and coatings industry is instrumental in fuelling the growth of green and bio-based solvents in the coming future.


Asia-Pacific to Dominate the Market Growth

Though North America is the major regional shareholder of the global green and bio-based solvents market, Asia-Pacific represents the market with highest growth owing to the immense demand from the paints & coatings, agrochemical solutions, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and other applications in the countries, like China, Malaysia, India, and Thailand. The huge market size with the highest growth rate is expected to further concrete the position of Asia-Pacific in the global green and bio-based solvents market in the coming years.
