The global aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents and thinners market was valued at USD 4.2 Billion in 2014, and is projected to reach USD 4.5 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 1.4% between 2015 and 2020. The market is projected grow due to the booming construction industry which has boosted the demand of the aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents and thinners resulting in the moderate growth of the market.

Paints and Coatings, pharmaceuticals and adhesives contribute the largest share to the global aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents and thinners market wherein the paints and coatings is the fastest growing application segment this is due to continuously increasing demand for construction chemicals, which has led to increase in the usage of paints & coatings. This, in turn has led to the increased demand for aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents and thinners, globally.

In comparison to mineral spirits, naphtha evaporates is “drier,” i.e., less oily. Naphtha is therefore better for cleaning all types of oily, greasy or waxy surfaces. On the other hand, mineral spirits is better for thinning oils, varnishes (including polyurethane varnish) and oil-based paints because it provides more time for the coating to level after brushing.

Though Varnish makers & paints have the largest market share but mineral spirits is the fastest growing type due to its effective solvent properties and cleaning capabilities which makes it a preferred solvent for paints, wood preservatives, varnishes, asphalt products etc.

The consumption of each of the solvent of the aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents and thinners is high in Asia-Pacific and this region is projected to witness significant growth in the coming years, especially due to the growing consumption of solvents in China and Korea. Globally, China dominates the aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents and thinners market. The absence of stringent regulations in the Asia-Pacific region has led to the extensive usage of aliphatic hydrocarbons solvents and thinners, the use of which is restricted in Europe and North America.

The nature of all the types of aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents and thinners are similar to each other. The major difference lies in terms of boiling point and prices of the product. High VOC emissions have also resulted in a stagnant growth for these solvents, globally.

Aliphatic Hydrocarbon Solvents And Thinners Market

However, increasing concerns over the toxicity of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) may hinder the growth of the global aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents and thinners market. Various leading players such as ExxonMobil (U.S.), Gulf Chemicals & Industries (Saudi Arabia), Shell Global (Netherlands), and CPC Corporation (Republic of China) and others offer aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents and thinners products to the end user industries under different brand names. Due to the growing demand of oxygenated solvents in comparison to aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents and thinners, the leading players have carried out little or no developments in this market.
