Global aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents and thinners market is projected to grow from $ 4.48 billion in 2018 to $ 5.18 billion by 2024, growing at a CAGR of 5.7%. Global aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents & thinners market is driven primarily by replacement of turpentine by mineral spirits. However, the market is facing challenges as manufacturers are switching to various green solvents as they are eco-friendly. Furthermore, environmental regulations are one of the major hinderances for aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents & thinners market as these hydrocarbons comprise several volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which are harmful for both environment as well as human health.

On the basis of type, global aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents & thinners market can be segmented into mineral spirits, hexane, varnish makers & painter’s naphtha, heptane and others. Varnish makers & painter’s naphtha is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to their extensive use as these solvents can be used with many oil-type paints, varnishes and enamels which aid in providing good product finishing. Based on application, global aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents & thinners market is categorized into paints & coatings, cleaning & degreasing, adhesives, aerosols, rubber & polymer, printing inks, and others. The market for paints & coatings is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during forecast period owing to their high demand backed by growing building & construction industry, particularly in the developing regions.

Among regions, Asia-Pacific aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents & thinners market is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this region is led by high demand from paints & coatings application segment as well as absence of strict regulations in the region.
