N-Heptane Market is Projected to Increase at a Robust 5.7% CAGR between 2022-2032

The global n- Heptane market is anticipated to expand at a steady5.7% CAGR over the forecast period between 2022 and 2032, finds Future Market Insights (FMI) in a recent market analysis. The growth of the paints and coatings industry, which drives the n-Heptane market, is being fueled by rising automobile production and rising building and construction activities. Rising demand in the pharmaceutical industry also will support the growth of the market.

The demand for n-Heptane is also driven by the increasing number of regulations imposed on the use of solvents such as aromatic solvents and also boosting the market by increasing production capacity and plant efficiency.

N-heptane is often used as an industrial fuel, a cleaning agent, and a laboratory agent. Cleaner extracts are known to be produced with n-heptane.It has various advantages over dichloromethane solvent because of its comparatively nontoxic properties. In certain conditions, such as when employed as a solvent, the latter produces hydrochloric acid, which can destroy extraction equipment. Using n-heptane, this disadvantage might be easily overcome.

However, the rising demand from various industries is boosting the market. N-Heptane is used as a paint solvent and rubber cement thinner in paints & coating industry. It is also excellent for oil extraction and solvent extraction. Jun yuan Petroleum Group produces a high purity (99.9%) grade of n-Heptane which is widely used in laboratories in the United States as a non-polar solvent, botanical processing labs, etc.

What is the Impact of COVID-19 Crisis on n- Heptane market?

Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the chemical and materials industry was moderate. Sales of many chemicals and materials plummeted due to disruption in supply chains and transportation restraints.

However, due to disruptions in the supply chain caused by the pandemic COVID-19, sales of hydrocarbon solvents reduced. With the recovery of the electronics, industrial coatings, and automotive, this demand would rise.

The COVID-19 epidemic caused a drop in the market for hydrocarbon solvents in 2020. Various governments imposed lockdowns, causing production to be halted and force majeure to be observed throughout many industries. This actively reduced the hydrocarbon solvent procurement procedure.

However, with the relaxation of lockdowns and the reopening of manufacturing sites, the market for hydrocarbon solvents is expected to expand at a moderate rate in the immediate term.
