The global green and bio-based solvents market encapsulates a largely fragmented competitive landscape with the presence of several companies. The geographical reach of the companies depends on their size, and companies of varied sizes currently operate in the market. On one hand, small manufacturers of green and bio-based solvents are attracting demand from the local customers, whilst the large manufacturers aim to expand their geographical reach by acquiring the local players.

The advantages offered by green and bio-based solvents over the ones processed from crude oil has been an integral factor that has elevated demand within the market. The ill-effects of hydrocarbon-based solvents on the environment have come to light which has contributed to the growth of the market in recent times. Sugars, beet root, and corn are some of the sources used for producing bio-based solvent, thus, making them harmless for chemical and industrial processes.
Despite the presence of several factors that aid the growth of the market, the high price of raw materials used to process green and bio-based products is obstructing market demand. Moreover, petroleum-based products can substitute the bio-based products, and the relatively lower price of the former is a challenge for the market. Complicated manufacturing processes for bio-based solvents make the entire process lengthy and cumbersome, which further hampers market growth. Nevertheless, the voluminous demand for bio-based solvents from several industries such as cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and sealants and adhesives is projected to keep bolstering demand within the market.
