Oxygenated industrial solvents are the major solvents utilized in the market in applications such as cosmetics, detergency, coating, and chemical industries during synthesis. They are also used as technical additives in construction and mining. Oxygenated solvents have the highest growth rate due to their favourable properties.
The replacement of hydrogenated solvents due to their toxicity had a severe negative impact on the environment; this has been one of the driving forces for oxygenated solvents, as these are less harmful.
