Aprotic Solvents Market

Aprotic Solvents Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2021-2031

Aprotic Solvents: Introduction

  • Aprotic solvents are solvents whose compounds do not contain proton or hydrogen atom or O-H or N-H group. For example, acetone does not have proton or hydrogen atoms. Thus, it is an aprotic solvents. Aprotic solvents include toluene, cyclohexane, and other aliphatic or aromatic solvents that do not contain acidic or basic groups (i.e., proton-generating functionalities).
  • Aprotic solvents are more reactive than protic solvents and are widely used to dissolve materials. The oil & gas industry is the major end-user of aprotic solvents due to the rise in demand for petroleum products across the globe. Furthermore, demand for paints & coatings and agrochemicals is high due to expansion of construction and agriculture sectors. Aprotic solvents are used for the formulation of paints and agrochemicals. Thus, demand for aprotic solvents is likely to rise significantly by 2031.

Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Aprotic Solvents Market

  • The aprotic solvents market has developed significantly in the recent years. This can be primarily ascribed to the high performance and increasing recognition of aprotic solvents globally. Aprotic solvents possess various properties such as high relative permeability, low reactivity, and thermal stability due to which they are widely used in various end-use industries. Increase in usage of aprotic solvents in pharmaceutical, agrochemicals, oil & gas, electronics, and paints & coatings industries is expected to propel the aprotic solvents market during the forecast period.
  • Growth of the construction industry is driving the usage of paints and coatings to a large extent. This is expected to create significant opportunities for the aprotic solvents market. Aprotic solvents are widely used in the paints & coatings industry. Thus, the aprotic solvents market is anticipated to expand at a significant pace during the forecast period.

Aprotic Solvents: Product Segment

  • In terms of product, the global aprotic solvents market can be segmented into n-methyl-2-pyrrolidone, toluene, benzene, acetone, and others
  • The n-methyl-2-pyrrolidone segment is expected to account for significant share of the global aprotic solvents market. It is anticipated to be followed by toluene.

Aprotic Solvents: Source Segment

  • In terms of source, the global aprotic solvents market can be segmented into bio-based and conventional
  • The conventional segment is expected to account for significant share of the global aprotic solvents market during the forecast period.

Aprotic Solvents: End-use Segment

  • In terms of end-use, the global aprotic solvents market can be segmented into pharmaceutical, adhesives, oil & gas, electronics, personal care, paints & coatings, agrochemicals, and others
  • The oil & gas segment is estimated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period. It is projected to be followed by the agrochemicals segment.
  • The electronics segment is likely to expand at a healthy CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the increase in usage of electronics products across the globe

COVID-19 Impact on Aprotic Solvents Market

  • On January 30, 2020, the International Health Regulations Emergency Committee of the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak a public health emergency of international concern. Originating in China, the virus has spread to at least 213 countries and territories around the world.
  • Several governments and private sector businesses are operating at a limited capacity or have ceased operations completely due to recent events surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Manufacture of various consumer goods and other products across the globe has come to a halt due to the unavailability of raw materials, shortage of labor, etc. This is expected to hamper the aprotic solvents market.

Asia Pacific to Dominate Aprotic Solvents Market

  • In terms of region, the global aprotic solvents market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa
  • Asia Pacific dominated the aprotic solvents market in 2020. This trend is anticipated to continue during the forecast period. This can be ascribed to the increasing demand for pharmaceutical, adhesives, and oil and gas in China and India.
  • Growth in private investments in developing economies in Asia Pacific, such as Indonesia and Vietnam, is a major factor anticipated to drive the market in the region during the forecast period
  • The aprotic solvents market in Latin America and Middle East & Africa is projected to expand at a moderate pace in the near future. Aprotic solvents are imported into countries such as Brazil, Mexico, and South Africa due to limited presence of manufacturing companies in these countries. Increase in government expenditure on the construction of development projects and public infrastructure is likely to drive the demand for aprotic solvents in these regions in the next few years.
