The global Solvents market held a market value of USD 26 Billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 49.6 Billion by the year 2030. The market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 7.5% from 2022 to 2030. Around 27.4 MMT of Solvents was sold in 2021.

Solvents are substances which dissolve a solute and result into a solution. The market is expected to be driven by the increasing demand of bio & green solvents, growing demand from agriculture sector, and rising demand of solvents from key application segments amid COVID-19. Furthermore, increasing demand for safe, effective, & eco-friendly products among customers and rising application of adhesives & sealants among various industries are also estimated to fuel the market growth.

Despite the driving factors, stringent regulatory framework and high risk due to exposure to solvents are anticipated to hinder the market growth. The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the paints and coatings industry, which declined the market growth.

Growth Influencers:

Increasing demand of bio & green solvents

Bio and green solvents are environmentally friendly solvents or bio solvents. These are derived from the processing of agricultural crops. Solvents are increasingly being used in various industries, such as engineering, pharmaceuticals, printing, and construction, among others. Owing to environmental sustainability and human health, scientists started developing green or bio based solvents. They are also known as agrochemicals. Their demand is increasing as a replacement for crude-oil based solvents. Hence, increasing demand of bio and green solvents are expected to fuel the market growth.

Segments Overview:

The global Solvents market is segmented into type, application, and source.

By Type

  • Hydrocarbons
  • Alcohols
  • Ketones
  • Esters
  • Chlorinated
  • Glycol Ethers
  • Other Solvents

The alcohols segment is estimated to account for the highest share of 40% in 2021 owing to the rising demand for methanol, ethanol, isopropanol, and n-butanol for a range of applications. The hydrocarbons segment is expected to record a 2 times growth during 2020 to 2030 owing to its organic properties.

By Application

  • Paints & Coatings
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Adhesives and Cosmetics
  • Rubber & Polymer
  • Personal Care
  • Agricultural Chemicals

The paints and coatings segment is expected to hold the largest market share of over 45% in 2021 owing to the increasing demand for water-based paints and coatings as well as powder coatings. The pharmaceuticals industry is estimated to surpass a market value of around USD 5 billion by 2025 owing to the growing use of solvents in the pharmaceutical drug manufacturing process. The adhesives and cosmetics segment is anticipated to register a 5 times growth during 2020 to 2030 owing to the rapidly growing cosmetics and adhesives industry.

By Source

  • Petrochemical-Based
  • Bio and Green

The petrochemical-based segment is anticipated to hold more than 90% of the market share in 2021 owing to the large product portfolio of petrochemical-based solvents available in the market. The bio and green segment is expected to grow at significant rates owing to the growing awareness regarding usage of eco-friendly products.
