The global paint thinner market was valued at $11.0 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $16.4 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 4.1% from 2022 to 2031.

Paint thinner is a solvent that is used to make paints less viscous. It is mixed in a proper ratio in paints (depending on the paint type) to liquefy and make the paint easier to spread. Paint thinners are used as cleaners and degreasers to remove the remains of paints and varnishes from brushers, sprayers, applicators, and other surfaces. In addition to this, it is widely employed in conjunction with several paints & coatings for enhancing the aesthetics and corrosion resistance purposes.

Factors such as rise in demand for consumer goods, accelerating sales of passenger vehicles, and increase in original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have surged the demand for tires where paint thinner is used as a solvent during paint removal activities. This may act as one of the key drivers responsible for the growth of the paint thinner market. Furthermore, increase in investments in building infrastructure in countries such as the U. S., China, Japan, Mexico, and India, have led the building & construction sector to witness a significant growth where paint thinner is widely employed for painting and cleaning of metallic structures, window frames, and others. This factor is anticipated to increase the sales of paint thinner; thus, boosting the market growth.

However, chronic exposure to paint thinners may lead to kidney function disorder, cardiovascular, and gastrointestinal disorders, and it has an adverse effect on the central peripheral nervous system of workers who have been working in the chemical industry and getting frequent exposure to paint thinners. This factor is expected to restrain the market growth during the forecast period.

On the contrary, the increasing awareness for using eco-friendly products has surged the potential application of turpentine-based paint thinners owing to the fact that turpentine-based paint thinners are manufactured from natural resources such as resin of pine trees that is employed as a base ingredient. For instance, according to a survey conducted by Harvard Business Review in August 2019, consumers (especially millennials) are becoming more linear towards using brands that embrace sustainability. This factor may further augment the growth of the turpentine solvent type paint thinner market; thus, creating remunerative opportunities for the market.

The paint thinners market is segmented into solvent type, end use, and region. On the basis of solvent type, the market is categorized into acetone, turpentine, naphtha, toluene, methyl ethyl ketone, and others. By application, it is classified into paints & coatings, industrial equipment, defense, electrical & electronics, building & construction, and others.

COVID-19 Analysis:

The novel coronavirus is an incomparable global pandemic that has spread to over 180 countries and caused huge losses of lives and the economy around the globe. The paint thinner market has been negatively impacted due to the wake of COVID-19 pandemic. The dependence of paint thinner market on building & construction, automotive & transportation, industrial, aerospace, and other sectors that were severely impacted during the COVID-19 pandemic has led the paint thinner market to witness a downfall. According to a report published by Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM), sale of passenger cars and sport utility vehicles declined by 52%, and 45% respectively in March 2020. Moreover, several automotive companies had either shutdown or shrank their operations due to the risk of infections among the workforces. This has temporarily hampered the demand for paint thinners market amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition, the falling income of customers and international travel restrictions has led to contraction of the demand of paint thinners among the aerospace sectors. For instance, according to a report published by Airlines for America, the commercial airline passenger volume in September 2020 was 68% less than September 2019, affecting long-term existential threat to manufacturers, the supply chain, and to the entire air travel industry. Furthermore, COVID-19 has put a temporary break on various aircraft manufacturing projects, which in turn has shrunk the demand for paint thinners used for interior coating and cleaning applications among the aerospace & aviation sectors. In addition, the paint thinner market has witnessed a downfall in demand among the construction sectors, owing to temporary halt on various building and construction project amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, the building & construction and transportation activities are projected to get back on track and start functioning with full capacity post COVID-19 period, which is expected to enhance the performance of the paint thinner market. Furthermore, rise in sales of automobile and after sale services has fuelled the demand for a wide range of paint thinners used for paint removal and refinish purposes. For instance, according to a data released by the National Investment Promotion and Facilitation Agency of India in April 2021, the automobile sector contributes around 7.1% of the India’s gross domestic product (GDP) and is expected to reach $300 billion by 2026. This may augment the growth of the paint thinner market in the coming future.
