Green & Bio-based Solvents (Bio-based Methanol, Bio-based Ethanol, Bio-based Propanol, Bio-based Butanol, Bio-based Propylene Glycol, Ethyl Lactate, D-Limonene, Methyl Soyate, and Others) Market for Paints & Coatings, Printing Inks, Commercial & Domestic Cleaning, Adhesives & Sealants, Pharmaceutical, Cosmetics, and Other Applications - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2015 - 2023

Solvents are typically liquids with the ability to dissolve or suspend other materials without any chemical change in the solvent or the material. Solvents can be broadly classified into two types: water-based and hydrocarbon-based. Petroleum-based solvents largely emit volatile organic compounds during production, handling, and application. This makes them harmful to the environment. On the other hand, green & bio-based solvents are environmentally friendly, as these are manufactured from bio-based resources. Green & bio-based solvents are primarily employed in various applications such as paints & coatings, printing inks, commercial & domestic cleaning, adhesives & sealants, pharmaceutical, and cosmetics. Increasing demand for bio-based materials in various downstream industries of these applications in developed regions is expected to boost the demand for green & bio-based solvents during the forecast period.

Bio-based ethanol dominated the market, followed by ethyl lactate and methyl soyate in 2014. The dominance of bio-based ethanol is anticipated to continue over the next few years, considering the commercial level of production and broad application range of bio-based ethanol. Methyl soyate is likely to be the fastest-growing product segment during the forecast period primarily due to its increasing usage as solvents in paints & coatings, printing inks, and cleaning applications. Additionally, significant growth potential of d-limonene as industrial and domestic cleaning solvent is estimated to drive the market for green & bio-based solvents during the next few years. Ethyl lactate is also likely to be a lucrative product segment during the forecast period. Increasing use of ethyl lactate as a substitute for existing petroleum based solvents is expected to drive the demand for ethyl lactate and indirectly green & bio-based solvents.  

Paints & coatings was the largest application segment of the green & bio-based solvents market, accounting for more than 40% share in terms of demand in 2014. The commercial & domestic cleaning segment is also anticipated to be a major consumer of green & bio-based solvents in the next few years. Adhesives & sealants is estimated to be the fastest-growing application segment of the green & bio-based solvents market between 2015 and 2023. Rising demand for environmentally-safe solvents in various applications and downstream industries is projected to propel the demand for green & bio-based solvents during the forecast period.

In terms of volume, North America held the largest share (more than 30%) of the global green & bio-based solvents market in 2014. Easy availability of raw materials, increasing demand for eco-friendly bio-based products, and technological availability for the production of green & bio-based solvents have boosted the green & bio-based solvents market in the region. Asia Pacific is likely to be the fastest-growing regional market for green & bio-based solvents during the forecast period. Increasing demand for solvents in paints & coatings, printing inks, cosmetics, pharmaceutical, and agrochemical applications in countries such as China, India, Thailand, and Malaysia is expected to drive the demand for green & bio-based solvents in the region in the next few years. The green & bio-based solvents market is anticipated to witness similar growth trend in Latin America primarily due to the significant demand from Brazil and Argentina. Overall, the global market for green & bio-based solvents is estimated to expand substantially in the next eight years.
 
The global green & bio-based solvents market is primarily driven by demand for bio-based solvents in various end-user industries. However, the availability of low-cost petroleum based substitutes in various end-user industries coupled with manufacturing complexities is estimated to hamper market growth. Increase in commercialization and high demand for green & bio-based solvents in the adhesives, pharmaceutical, and personal care industries are likely to act as key opportunities for the green & bio-based solvents market in the near future. Key players in the green & bio-based solvents market are Cargill Inc., Vertec Biosolvents Inc., BioAmber Inc., BioMCN, Corbion nv, Galactic, Archer Daniels Midland Company, Florida Chemical Company, Elevance Renewable Sciences, Inc., and Cobalt Technologies.

Chapter 10 List of Consumers of Green & Bio-based Solvents

Chapter 11 Primary Research – Key Findings

Solvents are liquids with the capability to dissolve other materials without any chemical change in the solvent or the material. Based on the type or source of raw material, solvents can be classified into bio-based or petroleum-based. Petroleum-based solvents emit high amount of volatile organic compounds during their manufacturing process. This makes them environmentally unsafe. Additionally, these solvents are typically dependent on the prices of crude oil, leading to constant fluctuations in the prices of final products. On the other hand, green & bio-based solvents are characterized by low toxicity, low miscibility, higher boiling point, less odor, and easy recycling process. Thus, green & bio-based solvents are eco-friendly. These properties or inherent advantages makes them suitable for usage in various applications such as paints & coatings, printing inks, commercial & domestic cleaning, adhesives & sealants, pharmaceutical, and cosmetics. Rising demand for these solvents in paints & coatings, printing inks, and industrial cleaning applications has increased their usage in various end-user industries. This is likely to drive the green & bio-based solvents market in the next few years. However, availability of various low-cost petroleum-based substitutes and high costs associated with the production of green & bio-based solvents are projected to hamper market growth during the forecast period. High demand for these solvents in adhesives & sealants, pharmaceutical, and personal care industries is estimated to act as a major opportunity in the near future.
