Solvents refer to a class of chemical compounds which are used to dissolve or suspend the other materials. Perhaps, water is the most common solvent used in everyday life and some of the solvents are also organic compounds, such as benzene, tetrachloroethylene, or turpentine. Solvents composed of polar molecules, like water, and dissolve other polar molecules, such as table salt, while nonpolar solvents, such as gasoline, dissolve nonpolar substances such as wax. The degree that a solvent dissolves in a given solute is referred to as its solubility. For example, Ethyl alcohol is highly soluble in water and Vinegar is very insoluble in oil.
Developing automotive and construction sectors all over the world are the major reasons anticipated to drive the demand for solvents across paints and coatings application. Apart from this, growth in consumer-oriented markets such as cleaning products, cosmetics, and toiletries will also stimulate demand for “green” solvents, such as butanediol derivatives, terpenes, and alcohols. Further, commencement of green & bio-solvents and ongoing research and development are likely to offer new opportunities for the growth of the global solvents market in the years to come.
