Some Key Findings of the Report
- The global solvents (oxygenated, hydrocarbon, and halogenated) market was estimated to be about 25 MT in volume in 2014. Aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents constitute 27% of the total solvents market.
- The historical growth (2010-2013) of the global / Asia-Pacific / Middle East aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents market is primarily attributed to a single factor i.e. growth in demand for solvents from the end-user industries as a result of economic growth, particularly in emerging markets.
- Shale gas discovery and exploitation have led to light naphtha becoming an over-supplied raw material in the aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents market, leading to lower the raw material costs for manufacturers of aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents.

- Solvents are highly regulated chemical substances as solvents emit high levels of VOCs in the atmosphere. Many global- as well as regional-level regulatory compliance rules/norms have been formulated to minimize the VOC emissions and to ensure compliance.

- VM&P naphtha constitutes around 80% of the aliphatic solvents market owing to its usage across range or end-user industries.

- Since the 1960’s, solvents have typically been used across a range of industries such as paints and coatings, printing inks and cleaning agents; they are also used in the pharmaceutical and synthetic rubber industries. The largest end-user customer segment to date is the paints and coatings industry.

- Corresponding to the growth of the printing inks industry, the demand for solvents as core ingredients (solvents account for ~ 50% to 70% of overall weight of printing inks too) is also expected to grow leading to profitable opportunities for market players.

- There is a rising trend is taking place of development of ‘solvent-free’ pharmaceuticals production processes (such as use of ball mills for molecule size reduction and dissolution) and the replacement/substitution of existing solvents.

- The Asia-Pacific aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents market is fragmented with only a small number of organized players having a presence across the entire region. Companies such as Shell Chemicals, ExxonMobil Chemicals, and two others together account for approximately 20% of the Asia-Pacific aliphatic solvents market.

- China will remain a ‘net importer’ for many ‘specialized solvents/product lines’, while relying on production and domestic consumption of commonly used aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents.

- Saudi Arabia and UAE produce nominal quantities of ‘specialized’ aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents for domestic consumption; they export the generic solvents and also raw material in bulk to other countries.
