“Oxygenated solvents are expected to have the largest share in the conventional solvents market in 2016”

Oxygenated solvents are estimated to have accounted for the largest share in the conventional solvents market, both, in terms of value and volume, in 2016. This is owing to the rising demand for non-VOC oxygenated solvents in applications such as paints & coatings, personal care, metal cleaning, and pharmaceutical applications in countries such as U.S., Canada, Mexico, Spain, France, U.K., and Russia, among others.

Moreover, growth in the construction and automobile industries is accompanied by the decreasing prices of crude oil, which is driving the demand for oxygenated solvents globally.

“Asia-Pacific is the biggest market for solvents”

The Asia-Pacific region led the global solvents market in 2015. The population growth and rapid urbanization in key countries, such as China and India, accompanied by the rising demand for automobiles contribute to the growth of the solvents market in this region.
