Region : Global | Report ID: FBI104236 | Status : Ongoing



Renewable solvents are produced by the fermentation process from renewable resources. The raw material used are cellulose, starch, and oil. It can be completely dissolved, and suspended in other materials. The renewable solvents help to reduce cost, due to which it is utilized as a substitute solution over traditional solvents. Additionally, renewable solvents are less toxic than traditional solvents, it is also biodegradable in nature and release lesser VOC emissions. These benefits of renewable solvents surge its demand in the various application which include paints & coatings, pharmaceuticals, adhesives, home & personal care, industrial cleaning, plastics & polymers, agrochemicals, and food & beverage.

Rising environmental impact has surged the demand for renewable solvents. Many petroleum-based traditional solvents are highly flammable & toxic and contain a high amount of VOC content. This further impacts the environment, thereby creating air pollution and cause various types of diseases such as lung infection, nausea, headache, and skin irritation. These factors raise the demand for renewable solvents, owing to its less toxic and releasing of lower VOC emission. In addition, the rising stringent regulations on traditional solvents will further surge the demand for renewable solvents. Hence, the rising demand will further fuel the renewable solvents market growth during the forecast timeline.

However, fluctuation in the raw material prices reduces the adoption of renewable solvents and impacts the overall price of the product. Hence, this is anticipated to hinder the market growth during the forecast timeline.

Key Market Driver -
