Increasing use of de-aromatic solvents in household insecticides and mosquito repellents is fuelling the growth of the India de-aromatic solvents market
Common and extensively used consumer products such as household insecticides, mosquito repellents and aerosols have been significant consumers of de-aromatic solvents in India in recent years. A variety of insecticides and mosquito repellents such as coils, sprays and electric mosquito repellent machines are available in the Indian market. Traditionally, coils dominated the Indian household insecticides market. However, over the past few years, there has been a significant growth in the use of insecticide aerosols or sprays.
This can be attributed to various factors such as rising disposable income, higher availability of such products, easy usage and health and environmental benefits associated with such products, as aerosols do not produce smoke. Due to such factors, the market for insecticides and mosquito repellent sprays or aerosols has witnessed robust growth over the past few years. Moreover, there has been an increase in the demand for de-aromatic solvents from the manufacturers of household insecticides and mosquito repellents as they are odorless, contain relatively less volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and also have lower toxicity as compared to conventional solvents. The use of de-aromatic solvents in such products is expected to continue to witness a steady growth during the forecast period, thereby giving a boost to the India de-aromatic solvents market.

Growing use of bio-based offerings and feedstock price volatility act as restraints to the India de-aromatic solvents market growth
Conventionally, crude oil based solvents form a key component of paints, coatings and inks. These solvent based paints, coatings and inks, among others, tend to release relatively higher amount of VOCs as compared to some of the other bio-based alternatives. In the recent past, market players have strived to develop eco-friendly or green product offerings that use bio-based raw materials for their synthesis and thus eventually do away with the use of conventional solvents in certain applications.
Due to the increasing demand for greener alternatives, the bio-based solvents market is slated to register a steady CAGR of around 6%-8% over the forecast period. In addition, the feedstock for de-aromatized hydrocarbon solvents is naphtha, which is derived from crude oil. Hence, prices of these petroleum based de-aromatized hydrocarbon solvents tend to be volatile as they are influenced by volatility in the prices of crude oil. These factors adversely affect the profitability of manufacturers and in turn may inhibit the growth of the India de-aromatic solvents market.
