Oxygenated Solvents Market Projected to be Resilient During 2017-2025


Oxygenated solvents are basically produced using distilling components from chemicals, which help in creating balance and consistency between ingredients in the end-product. Oxygenated solvents are organic solvents, their molecules contain oxygen. Oxygenated solvents are known for their significantly high rate of purity owing to the critical solvent refinement processes which eliminate excess water and particulate matter which occurs in various stages of production. Various types of oxygenated solvents are available in the market. These include alcohols, glycols, ketones, esters, glycol ethers, etc. Oxygenated solvents are widely utilized in various applications, such as paints & coatings, personal care products, pharmaceutical, etc. They are also utilized as diluents as well as for chemical synthesis in various types of formulations.

Generally, oxygenated solvents are more expensive than hydrocarbons. Hence, mixtures are made whenever possible to lower the cost. However, they have stronger solvency and are utilized as active solvents for most of the synthetic resins. Their strong solvency, together with the wide range of volatilities available, makes them an extremely important group of solvents for the paints & coatings industry.

Global Oxygenated Solvents Market: Dynamics

The growing construction industry in developing regions, such as Asia Pacific, Middle East etc. is supporting the demand for paints and coatings products, which, in turn, will boost the demand for oxygenated solvents over the near future. Rapid developments in urban areas, smart city projects and renovation of aging structures are the major reasons responsible for the growth of the construction industry in the region.

Various organizations, such as the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), California Air Resources Board (CARB) and Ozone Transport Commission (OTC), etc. are working to set restrictive limits on Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) content in industrial and architectural maintenance coatings. These environmental regulations are expected to be the key challenges for the manufacturers in the region.

Manufacturers of oxygenated solvents are working on the development of eco-friendly solvents which are also cost effective. These oxygenated solvents are non-flammable, non-VOC and also have low toxicity. Eco-friendly oxygenated solvents are an excellent alternative to the traditional solvents, such as N-Methylpyrrolidone. These green alternative solvents can be utilized in various applications, which include paint stripping, cleaning, degreasing, etc.
