Global Renewable Solvent Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2022 - 2031

Renewable Solvent Market Size, Revenue & Forecast

The global renewable solvent market is estimated to garner a revenue of ~USD 7 billion by the end of 2031 by growing at a CAGR of ~5% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2031. Further, the market generated a revenue of ~USD 4 billion in the year 2021. The benefits of renewable solvents over traditional solvents like less toxicity, biodegradable in nature and lesser emission of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) is estimated to be the primary growth factor for the renewable solvent market in the forecast period. As per recent estimates, the United States emitted approximately 11,880 tons of VOC in 2021 – a considerable decrease from 2018 with 12,930 tons. Such a decrease in VOC emission is expected to prompt the market size of renewable solvent.

Renewable solvents are manufactured through the process of fermentation of renewable resources. Generally, the raw materials used are cellulose, starch or oil. The renewable solvents get completely dissolved and suspend easily in other materials. The renewable solvents are eco-friendly due to which it is used as a substitute over traditional solvents. Additionally, traditional solvents are not considered to be an optimum option because of its highly flammable and toxic content. They highly impact the environment by creating air pollution and diseases such as lung infection, nausea, headache and skin irritation. In 2019, as per World Health Organization, 99% of the world population was living in places where the WHO air quality guidelines levels were not met. The high level of air pollution is anticipated to foster the demand of renewable solvents hereby creating growth opportunities  for the renewable solvent market.

Global Renewable Solvent Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rapid Urbanization and Industrialization – The rise on per capita fuels urbanization and propel the population to live in urban areas. As a result, the demand for construction, food & beverages, automobiles, and others gradually increases. The rapid industrialization and urbanization thus are expected to fuel the demand of renewable solvents for its varied uses. United Nations Organization stated that, as of May 2018, about 55% of the global population lives in urban areas. This number is further anticipated to increase to 68% by 2050.
  • Growing Application of Renewable Solvents in Automotive Industry – The constant rising demand of vehicles backed up by the high usage of renewable solvents in automobiles are expected to drive the market growth. As per the data by the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA), the global sales of all vehicles rose from 78,774,320 units in 2020 to 82,684,788 units in 2021.
  • Expansion of Paints and Adhesives Industry – As per recent data, the global market volume of paint and coatings was calculated to approximately 10 billion gallons in 2019.
  • Growing Demand of Consumer Goods – The increased demand of consumer goods is expected to surge the growth of packaging industry where renewable solvent adhesives and sealants are used for bonding purpose. As per the India Brand Equity Foundation in 2022, the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) sector was calculated to be India’s fourth-largest sector with household and personal care accounting for 50% of FMCG sales in India.
  • Rise in Research and Development Expenditure – According to the World Bank, the global research and development expenditure accounted for 2.2% in 2018, which further rose to 2.63% in 2020.


  • Fluctuation in Raw Material Prices
  • Complex Production Process
  • High Cost of Renewable Solvent Production

The renewable solvents market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into paints & coatings, pharmaceuticals, adhesives, home & personal care, industrial cleaning, plastics & polymers, agrochemicals, food & beverage, and others. Out of these, the paints & coatings segment is anticipated to garner the highest revenue by 2031. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the growing demand for renewable solvent solutions for the construction and automotive industries.
