U.K. Aerosol Industry Shows Resilience to COVID-19 Crisis

The aliphatic solvents market is predicted to advance at a modest CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period. Manufacturers are tapping into business opportunities in the U.K. aerosol industry. As per the British Aerosol Manufacturers’ Association (BAMA), the U.K. aerosol industry is found to be innovative and resilient, especially to the COVID-19 outbreak. The U.K. manufacturers are boosting their output capacities to meet consumer demand for perfumes, dry shampoos, and other hair care products. As such, waterless mousses and dry conditioners are being highly publicized in aerosol and hair care products industries.

The steady demand for personal care products is creating stable revenue streams for companies in the aliphatic solvents market. Antiperspirants are one of the top selling products in the U.K. However, the coronavirus pandemic affected the volume sales of industrial and automotive aerosols, due to the closure of production facilities. Hence, manufacturers are establishing robust distribution chains for medical and pharmaceutical aerosol industries.

Aliphatic Solvent Manufacturers Gaining Strong Research Base in Recyclable Rubber

Recyclable rubber and construction waste are storming the aliphatic solvents market due to the high demand for sustainable building materials. This explains why the aliphatic solvents market is expected to reach the revenue of US$ 3.34 Bn by the end of 2030. New rubber is made from canola oil and sulfur, which tend to reduce its recyclable property. Hence, a team of researchers from South Australia’s Flinders University has designed a recyclable rubber polymer that can accommodate construction waste. Aliphatic solvent manufacturers should collaborate with such researchers to gain a competitive edge in the global market landscape.

Aliphatic solvent manufacturers are gaining a strong research base in reactive compression molding processes to innovate in the production of recyclable rubber. They are experimenting with various fillers ranging from carbon fiber and PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) to agricultural waste to design recyclable rubber. This helps to replace certain toxic construction materials such as concrete in order to make recyclable rubber.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

During the coronavirus situation, storage facilities are brimming with supply for oil & gas. Potential COVID-19 vaccines are encouraging people to step out of homes, which will help to revive the demand for oil & gas. The burgeoning growth of the construction industry in China, the U.S., and India is projected to fuel the demand for recyclable rubber and sustainable building materials. However, sustainability in the printing inks sector is highly argued. Hence, manufacturers in the aliphatic solvents market should gain a strong research base in eco-friendly, bio-renewable, and biodegradable printing inks to meet the demand of conscious consumers and clients. Moreover, aerosols have a steady demand in the U.K. consumer and commercial sectors.

Aliphatic Solvents Market: Overview

  • In terms of value, the aliphatic solvents market is expected to reach US$ 3.34 Bn by 2030
  • Aliphatic solvents, also known as aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents, are defined as organic compounds whose carbon atoms are either linked in open chains, straight or branched, rather than containing a benzene ring. Aliphatic solvents are mixtures of saturated, long straight chain (normal-paraffin), branched chain (Iso-paraffin), or cyclic paraffin. Aliphatic solvents are produced by distillation of crude oil with an appropriate boiling point range fraction. They are then treated to improve their color and odor. Aliphatic solvents are considered aliphatic compounds. They contain carbon and hydrogen, which are joined together in straight chains, branched trains, or non-aromatic rings.
  • Hydrocarbons of the alkane type, alkene, and alkyne series are aliphatic compounds. These are similar to fatty acids and many other compounds. Therefore, aliphatic solvent compounds are the opposite of aromatic solvents compounds. Besides their usage as solvents or diluents in paints and thinners, aliphatic solvents are widely used in oil extraction, degreasing, and rubber manufacturing applications. Aliphatic solvents are also used as carriers of aerosols and disinfectants.
  • Common examples of aliphatic solvents include mineral spirits, gasoline, kerosene, petroleum naphtha, petroleum distillate, cyclohexane, octane, and pentane or isopentane nonane. Most of the solvents contain a blend or mixture of different aliphatic types or aliphatic or aromatic hydrocarbons, depending on their applications in end-use industries.

Aliphatic Solvents Market: Key Drivers and Restraints

  • The global aliphatic solvents market is driven by the increase in demand for paints and coatings, especially in the building & construction and automotive sectors. Around 50% of aliphatic solvents are employed in the manufacture of paints and coatings. Aliphatic solvents dissolve or disperse different components such as binders, additives, pigment, and extenders that are used in the formulation of paints and coatings. Paints and coatings that contain aliphatic solvents offer properties such as adhesion, wettability, and corrosion resistance. Consequently, paints and coatings are employed to protect various surfaces from corrosion and erosion that can lead to surface spoilage. Furthermore, paints and coatings preserve and protect the substrate they are applied to, thus conserving material resources and energy.
  • Availability of substitutes of turpentine such as mineral spirits, diversified portfolio of aliphatic solvents, and increase in applications of aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents are some of the major drivers propelling the global aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents market. Expansion of the construction industry is also one of the major factors propelling the global aliphatic solvents market.

Aliphatic Solvents Market: Prominent Applications

  • Based on application, the global aliphatic solvents market has been divided into paints & coatings, cleaning & degreasing, adhesives, aerosols, rubbers & polymers, printing inks, and others
  • The paints & coatings application segment is projected to dominate the global aliphatic solvents market during the forecast period, owing to the increase in demand for paints and coatings in building & construction and automotive sectors. Paints & coatings was a high-value application segment of the global aliphatic solvents market in 2019. This trend is expected to continue during the forecast period.
  • The rubbers & polymers segment has also been expanding at a significant pace since the past few years. The rubbers & polymers segment is estimated to expand substantially during the forecast period, owing to the rise in demand for aliphatic solvents as lubricating additives in PVC processing.

Asia Pacific to be Highly Lucrative Region of Aliphatic Solvents Market

  • Asia Pacific accounts for a prominent share of the global aliphatic solvents market due to high demand for paints and coatings that are used in automotive, building & construction, and other industries.
