Historical Trends Vs Future Projections

Aliphatic solvents are organic compounds whose carbon particles are either straight or spread, connected in open chains, instead of having a benzene ring. Aliphatic solvents are a mixture of long straight chain (paraffin compounds), saturated, branched chain, or cyclic paraffin.

The origin of aliphatic solvents is crude oil; it is produced by distillation of crude oil which includes separating the compounds based on their boiling point. They are then treated to improve their shading and smell.

  • Short Term (2023-2026): Growing demand from aliphatic solvents from paints and coatings, rubber manufacturing is driving the aliphatic solvents market.
  • Medium Term (2026-2029): Extensive oil & gas exploration projects and steady demand for personal care products are set to augment the aliphatic solvents market growth, especially in North America and Asia Pacific regions.
  • Long Term (2029-2033): Rising popularity of eco-friendly, bio-renewable, and bio-degradable printing inks and rising demand for anti-viral and anti-bacterial paints to drive aliphatic solvent demand in the long run.

Over the 2018-2022 historical period, the global aliphatic solvents market registered a CAGR of 3.1%, according to the Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the market is projected to exhibit growth at 5.0% CAGR between 2023 and 2033.

Market Dynamics Overview

“Growing Rubber Industry to Elevate Aliphatic Solvents Demand”

Accessibility of substitutes of turpentine like mineral spirits diversifies the portfolio of aliphatic solvents, and the usage of aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents is some of the significant drivers impelling the worldwide aliphatic solvents market.

Aliphatic solvents are used during the manufacturing process of rubber. The tire's components are held together by the solvent's adhesive properties, which also soften and clean each rubber layer. This improves performance and safety.

According to WRIO, global rubber production increased to 13.8 million tons in 2021. The demand for rubber is expected to increase due to the rising automotive industry, footwear industry, and other industries.

Aliphatic solvent demand is rising as a result of major rubber product manufacturers switching to recyclable production materials in response to growing sustainability concerns across the globe.

“Harmful Effects and Shift Towards Greener Alternatives to Obstruct Growth”

Personnel that is involved in the production process of thinners and aliphatic solvents frequently come into contact with solvents, which can be harmful to their nervous and respiratory systems. Organic solvents have become a desirable alternative for manufacturers of aliphatic solvents and thinners due to prohibitive regulations on the use of solvents.

Growing demand for eco-friendly solvents such as glycerol, ethanol, ethyl acetate, and d-limonene from cosmetics, medicine, paints and coatings, and adhesives manufacturers is likely to hamper the aliphatic solvents market growth.

Since aliphatic solvents are derived from petroleum, the rise in crude oil prices and increasing awareness regarding the harmful effects of extraction and purification of crude oil will have a negative effect on aliphatic solvents production and consumption.
