Halogenated Solvents Market: Overview
- Halogenated solvents are a large class of substances defined as aliphatic compounds containing at least one halogen atom. Halogenated solvents is a chemical compound or mixture that includes halogen atoms such as fluorine, chlorine, bromine, or iodine. Halogenated solvents are used in apparel and footwear production.
- Decomposition of halogenated solvents involves three types of processes: oxidation, hydrolysis, and pyrolysis. Halogenated organic solvents can have detrimental effects on the environment and human health.
- Chlorinated solvents are mostly used in dry cleaning, metal cleaning, degreasing, automotive aerosols, printing, paper and textile industries, paint removal, furniture industry, and others.
- Fluorocarbon solvents are widely used as refrigerants. Brominated solvents are used as additives in leaded gasoline, soil sterilants, and for the manufacture of pesticides and fumigants. Iodinated solvents are used as intermediates for numerous chemicals, dyes, fumigants, X-ray contrast media, antiseptics, insecticides, quaternary ammonium compounds, flavors and fragrances, and pharmaceuticals. They are also used in microscopy and testing for pyridine.

- Improvement in economic conditions, rise in rate of urbanization, and increase in the level of education levels are boosting the printing ink industry. Thus, rise in demand for printing inks is anticipated to boost the halogenated solvents market.
High Cost of Technology Likely to Hamper Market
- Long term exposure to several halogenated solvents may give rise to the development of particular cancers. Halogenated solvents may cause critical damage to human health, especially via acute inhalation of high dosages. Halogenated solvents can be toxic to aquatic organisms. They may have a long-term adverse impact on the aquatic environment.
- Halogenated solvents possess a pungent odor that is known to be harmful for the workers. Halogenated solvents dissolve in small quantities of water, but the presence of water may be issue for producers and consumers of halogenated solvents
- Increase in environmental issues and volatile nature of prices of key raw materials are expected to remain key challenges for the halogenated solvents market
- Legislation around the world, including in the European Union, restricts the use of certain halogenated solvents. Therefore, leading apparel and footwear brands have banned the use of various halogenated solvents in the production of their products.
