Solvents to 2016

  1. 1. Solvents to 2016Report Details:Published:November 2012No. of Pages:Price: Single User License – US$4900This study analyzes the US solvent industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001,2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by solvent type (conventional, green), market(e.g., manufacturing, services) and function (e.g., vehicle/carrier/thinner, antifreeze and deicers,cleaners, extraction agents). The study also considers market environment factors, details industrystructure, evaluates company market share and profiles industry players.US demand to rebound from recent lowsUS solvent demand will continue to rebound from its recessionary lows, rising more than onepercent per year in volume terms through 2016. Increased demand for “green” solvents,particularly in consumer oriented markets, will drive advances, along with a rebound in theconstruction market where solvent consumption will increase at the fastest pace. Alcohols andglycols, both of which can be sourced at least partially from renewable resources, will achieve thegreatest gains, while other green solvents such as butanediol, terpenes, and esters will rise at aneven faster pace. While the solvent industry will experience healthyadvances through 2016, even stronger growth will be limited by the ongoing shift away from oil-based paint, and industry efforts to reduce solvent consumption. Consequently, total solventdemand will not surpass the levels achieved in 2006 until after 2016.Rising demand for green products to continue affecting solvent industryA long term rise in consumer demand for environmentally friendly products is having a profoundeffect on the solvent industry as cleaning product and cosmetic and toiletry manufacturersincreasingly introduce new or reformulated products that can be marketed as green because theyuse chemicals and/or solvents derived from renewable (green) resources. Improved publicperception and government regulations are also driving the shift, both at the state and federallevels.In particular, the need to meet stricter VOC regulations has benefited demand for glycol solventsin the paint and coatings market, where they offer formulators excellent options to reduce VOCcontent. In the pharmaceuticals market, the need to meet stringent FDA and EPA regulations hasprompted greater demand for alcohols -- in particular, ethanol. Chemical processors also lookingto comply with VOC regulations are increasingly turning toward butanediol and its derivatives tolower VOC content while using solvents.Market gains to be limited by reformulations, recycling
  2. 2. The solvent industry was heavily impacted by the severity of the great recession that began in late2007, with falling demand in all markets, including service related markets such as transportationand dry cleaning that have often been more resilient in past economic downturns. Constructionrelated markets were particularly impacted with the decline in construction spending which alsoaffected the paint and coatings and adhesives and sealant markets. While strong gains inconstruction spending through 2016 will drive growth in that market, advances will be more limitedin paint and coatings and adhesives and sealants due to a shift away from products that containhydrocarbons and chlorinated solvents.Most other markets began recovering in 2010, including the transportation market, which willcontinue to be the largest market through 2021. Growth in the transportation market, however, willtrail advances in solvent demand overall due to the impact of lengthening recommended enginecoolant flush intervals by vehicle manufacturers. Additionally, solvent demand in a number ofmanufacturing markets will be constrained by ongoing company efforts to implement integratedsolvent recycling operations and introduce new and/or reformulated products containing lesssolvent.COMPANY PROFILESProfiles 45 US industry competitors such as Dow Chemical, Eastman Chemical, Exxon Mobil,Lyondell Chemical, and ShellGet your copy of this report @ points covered in Table of Contents of this report includePreliminary Table of Contents/ List of Tables & ChartsIntroductionExecutive Summary1 Summary TableMARKET ENVIRONMENTGeneralMacroeconomic OutlookConsumer SpendingManufacturing OutlookFood & Beverage OutlookChemical Industry OutlookElectronics Industry OutlookPlastics & Rubber Industry OutlookDemographic TrendsEnvironmental & Regulatory IssuesAir Quality IssuesWorker Safety IssuesSolvent RecyclingHistorical Trends
