Green & Bio-Based Solvents Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (Alcohols, Glycols, Diols, Lactate Esters, D-Limonene, Methyl Soyate, Others), By Application (Industrial & Domestic Cleaners, Paints & Coatings, Adhesives, Printing Inks, Pharmaceuticals, Cosmetics, Others) and Regional Forecast, 2022-2029

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI102931 | Status : Ongoing



Green & bio-based solvents are made from the vegetable oils, lactic acid, bio-succinic acid, beat, sugarcane, corn, and refined glycerin. These solvents are manufactured in a biorefinery that combines equipment and biomass conversion process, that further produces fuel and power. They are also used in the production of chemical products such as bio-glycols and bio-alcohols. Moreover, their properties includes eco-friendly, recyclable, non-carcinogenic, non-corrosive, and biodegradable. Additionally, green & bio-based solvents exhibit low miscibility, low toxicity, and high boiling point, hence, they are used as substitute products for crude oil based solvents. These solvents are majorly utilized in paints & coatings, printing inks, industrial & domestic cleaners, adhesives, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics.

The rising use of green & bio-based solvents in various applications such as paints & coatings, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics had led to the growth of the market. The properties such as low VOC emissions and eco-friendly nature make green & bio-based solvents the best substitute product than other chemical-based and crude oil-based solvents. These properties of the products were the prime reason for manufacturers to shift towards green solvents. Hence, increasing the growth in various applications will lead to the demand for green & bio-based solvents.

The high production cost of green & bio-based solvents is anticipated to restrain market growth.
