How Do Historical Trends Compare to Future Market Outlook?

Advancements in manufacturing technology across various domains has ushered in countless innovations with regards to streamlining the entire production process. A key beneficiary of such developments is the industrial solvents sector, which is seeing a rapid spike in low aromatic solvents manufacturing, providing major impetus to market growth.

While growth prospects dipped significantly amidst the pandemic crisis, spiking demand for consumer products such as aerosols have helped sustain demand across several key regions. Furthermore, as sustainability concerns mount, deploying aliphatic solvents will increase significantly, especially across key industries such as rubber and paints & coatings.

Will High Uptake across Oil & Gas Exploration Broaden Growth Prospects?

Large-scale urbanization has necessitated extensive development of the public and private transportation sector, which has stimulated demand for fossil fuels. Hence, extensive oil & gas exploration projects have been initiated in the past few years, generating new growth avenues for the market.

Used as drilling fluids to provide hydrostatic pressure to prevent formation fluids from entering into the well bore, these solvents offer greater absorbing capacity, have low water solubility and are comparatively less toxic compared to aromatic ones. Hence, their uptake is increasing across oil & gas exploration projects.

An Adaptive Approach to Modern-day Research Needs

How is Recyclable Rubber Manufacturing Opening up Growth Avenues for Manufacturers of Aliphatic Solvents?

Increasing sustainability concerns worldwide are prompting key rubber products manufacturers to switch to recyclable production material, thus generating demand for aliphatic solvents. Manufacturers are acquiring strong research base in reactive compression molding processes to bring about innovations in the production of recycled rubber.

Incorporation of material such as carbon fiber and polyvinyl chloride as well as agricultural waste are rapidly penetrating the rubber manufacturing industry. Hence, uptake of low aromatic solvents to aid in this production process is increasing, generating potential revenue streams in the forthcoming decade.
