Strides in Green & Bio-based Solvents Market to Reduce Reliance on Non-renewable Sources

Oil-based solvents have come to be heavily criticized for their impact on environment. Over the last decade and especially around the mid of this decade, there has been vigorous debates on adopting chemistries that can dramatically reduce reliance on non-renewable raw materials. Conventional solvents have come under the scanner for their release of volatile organic compounds (VOC). Industries that utilize solvents profusely have fervently climbed on the bandwagon on green chemistries. The popularity of green and bio-based solvents has stemmed from this trend. These bio-based solvents are made commonly use beet, corn, and sugar as raw materials. The value chain of the green and bio-based solvents is being continuously enriched, with the advances in discovery, manufacturing, processing of biochemicals to meet the properties of solvents. Chemical companies are relentlessly aiming at improving the stability, biodegradability, and cost effective. Their efforts have borne fruit as is evident from growing array of products in the green and bio-based solvents market. Rising adoption of greener substitutes is a key driver for the growth prospects and revenue generation for players in the ecosystem. The landscape is bolstered by extensive research and development projects.

The outbreaks of Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 in several regions around the world and the underlying waves have wreaked nothing less than a havoc on economy and flow of money in firms. The humanitarian crisis has also severely hit the job market from unskilled workers and skilled crisis. The morbidity and mortality still continues across some of the major economies of the world, triggering worldwide attention to combat the crisis head-on. Civil societies, citizen’s group on the back of support by governments are looking to meet the needs of the affected population with alacrity. These efforts have no doubt shown results, especially in containing community-wide spread. On the other hand, various industry players have joined hands to address the mental and physical wellbeing of their employees affected by the pandemic in all possible ways. All these will impact the contours of the green and bio-based solvents market.

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.
