Aliphatic Hydrocarbon Solvents & Thinners Market (Varnish Makers & Painters Naphtha, Mineral Spirit, Hexane, Hepteane) - Global Forecast to 2024 -


The "Aliphatic Hydrocarbon Solvents & Thinners Market by Type (Varnish Makers & Painters Naphtha, Mineral Spirit, Hexane, Hepteane), Application (Paints & Coatings, Cleaning & Degreasing, Adhesives, Aerosols, Rubber & Polymer) - Global Forecast to 2024" report has been added to's offering.

The global aliphatic solvents & thinners market was valued at USD 4.6 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 5.2 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 2.7% from 2019 to 2024.

The Asia Pacific region accounted for the largest share of 47.5% of the aliphatic solvents & thinners market in 2018, followed by Europe that had a share of 19.1% in the same year. Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing market, in terms of value, growing at a CAGR of 3.1% from 2019 to 2024. It is also the largest market for aliphatic solvents & thinners, in terms of value.

Hydrocarbons are organic molecules consisting entirely of carbon and hydrogen atoms. There are two types of hydrocarbons, namely, aliphatic hydrocarbons and aromatic hydrocarbons. Aliphatic hydrocarbons consist of linear chains of carbon atoms and can be classified as methane (CH4) and ethane (C2H6). Aromatic hydrocarbons consist of closed rings of carbon atoms.

Examples of biological molecules that incorporate a benzene ring are the amino acids tyrosine and phenylalanine; cholesterol and its various derivatives (such as the sex hormones estrogen and testosterone); and herbicides. As an exception, the carotenoid beta-carotene is a hydrocarbon that has both, aliphatic and aromatic portions.

Varnish makers & painters' naphtha and mineral spirits, two common aliphatic solvents are widely used in paints and coatings applications, as they can be used with many alkyd and oil paints, enamels, and varnishes to help provide an enhanced finish to products.

The major factor driving the aliphatic solvents market is the increasing demand from the paints & coatings application in the automotive and construction industries. On the other hand, the growing focus of various end-use industries on bio solvents and green solvents due to the harmful effects of petrochemical-based solvents is a key restraint for the market.

Key players such as Royal Dutch Shell PLC (Netherlands), Exxon Mobil Chemical (US), and SK GlobalChemical Co. Ltd (South Korea), among others, have adopted various growth strategies, including acquisitions and expansions, to strengthen their market position.
