Increase in research and development activities on green and bio-solvents.

The harmful effects of conventional solvents on human body have resulted in preference of bio-based solvents by end users. The solvents such as diethanolamine, triethanolamine, and polyethylene glycols are used in personal care products. These solvents can cause health problems such as hormone disruptions, irritation of the eyes, skin, respiratory tracts, sore throat, and asthma. Other conventional solvents such as carbon tetrachloride and 1,2- dicholoroethane are used in pharmaceutical applications which are toxic and carcinogenic. These factors have increased the scope for research and development in the field of green & bio-solvents.

APAC is the fastest growing green and bio-solvents market in the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific represents the market with the highest growth and is dominating in terms of value owing to the immense demand from the paints and coatings, agrochemical solutions, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and other applications in the countries, like China and India. China is one of the fastest-growing economies globally with the largest manufacturing sector, high living standards, and per capita income. Consumer demand for greener solvents is driving the government policymakers and manufacturers to replace petrochemical-based solvents with bio-solvents. Such factors are likely to increase the demand for the market.
