The green & bio-solvents market, along with its applications, witnessed a moderate-to-high growth in the past few years and is likely to continue so in the in the coming years. Bio-solvents have made rapid incursions into a variety of end-use segments such as printing inks, coatings, edible oil adhesives, food processing, and cleaning products, among others. These are based on soy methyl ester, lactate esters, and D-limonene from citrus rinds. Regulatory mandates for the printing ink industry have set stringent guidelines for the use of solvents, thereby driving the increased use of bio-solvents in the printing ink industry. The market size, in terms of value, of green & bio-solvents is estimated to be about USD 5.58 Billion in 2015 and is projected to reach USD 8.17 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 7.94% between 2015 and 2020.

The green & bio-solvents market size, in terms of value, is estimated to reach USD 8.17 Billion by 2020, signifying a firm CAGR of over 7.94% between 2015 and 2020. The drivers identified for the green & bio-solvents market are environmental & regulatory pressure designed to reduce the emissions of ODS, VOCs, and HAPs; reduced dependency on petrochemical solvents and the exporting countries; improved competitiveness from product differentiation; and uncertainty about oil price development.

Methyl soyate is the fastest-growing green & bio-solvent and it has become successful commercially as a viable green alternative industrial solvent on its own merits, as the market demand has increased exponentially from the past ten years. Besides methyl soyate, d-limonene and lactate esters are also high growth markets.

Cosmetics , pharmaceutical, and paints & coatings applications are estimated to witness the best growth prospects for green & bio-solvents. Symrise AG (Germany), Revlon (U.S), and Rossmann (Germany) are among many companies that have launched cosmetic products containing alpha-bisabolol in the last two decades, a sesquiterpene with marked anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. Glycerol, a by-product from the trans-esterification of vegetable oils, is very common in the cosmetic industry as a solvent for maceration of herbs and spices. The natural antioxidants from polyphenolic extract of rosemary are in high demand by the cosmetic industry.

The biggest market of bio-solvents is North America, followed by South America and Europe. It is estimated that Europe will record a moderate growth due to strong regulations for bio-solvents. The largest demand will typically be in industrialized countries, while the best production potential will be found in developing countries due to advantageous climate and abundant land.

Government support and incentives will vary widely, since it depends on each country’s specific conditions. There are a number of regional differences in the bio-solvent sector’s dependency on government support, depending on crude oil prices and bio-solvent production costs. The market in developing and emerging countries is also dependent on the bio-solvent policies in the U.S. and the European Union, where the ambitious targets can hardly be met domestically.

The restraints for the market include uncertainty about the reliability and adequate supply of feedstocks and availability, reliability, and cost of new technologies. The green & bio-solvents industry, being a developing one, has witnessed consolidation in the recent past. This has broadened product lines for some major companies. However, the green & bio-solvents industry remains fragmented, with the presence of a large number of companies.

Exteneded Description

The green & bio-solvents market, along with its applications, witnessed a moderate-to-high growth in the past few years and is likely to continue so in the in the coming years. Bio-solvents have made rapid incursions into a variety of end-use segments such as printing inks, coatings, edible oil adhesives, food processing, and cleaning products, among others. These are based on soy methyl ester, lactate esters, and D-limonene from citrus rinds. Regulatory mandates for the printing ink industry have set stringent guidelines for the use of solvents, thereby driving the increased use of bio-solvents in the printing ink industry. The market size, in terms of value, of green & bio-solvents is estimated to be about USD 5.58 Billion in 2015 and is projected to reach USD 8.17 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 7.94% between 2015 and 2020.
