The market size, in terms of value, of green & bio-solvents is estimated to be about USD 5.58 Billion in 2015 and is projected to reach USD 8.17 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 7.94% between 2015 and 2020. The green & bio-solvents market, along with its applications, witnessed a moderate-to-high growth in the past few years and is likely to continue so in the in the coming years. Bio-solvents have made rapid incursions into a variety of end-use segments such as printing inks, coatings, edible oil adhesives, food processing, and cleaning products, among others. These are based on soy methyl ester, lactate esters, and D-limonene from citrus rinds. Regulatory mandates for the printing ink industry have set stringent guidelines for the use of solvents, thereby driving the increased use of bio-solvents in the printing ink industry.
