Research and Markets: North American Hydrocarbon Solvents (HCS) Market – 2015 Outlook and Trends

By Business Wire News   


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “North American Hydrocarbon Solvents (HCS) Market-Outlook and Trends” report to their offering.

This market insight covers the North American hydrocarbon solvents (HCS) market. The segments are analyzed by n-paraffins, isoparaffins, special boiling points, aromatics, dearomatized aliphatics, and mineral/white spirits. Aromatics do not include toluene and xylene (T&X). HCS demand, market growth, and trends are discussed for the following vertical markets: paints and coatings, oilfield and drilling, adhesives and sealants, industrial and institutional cleaning, process chemicals, functional fluids, printing inks, pharmaceuticals, and others. Value chain dynamics, purchase process, competitive structure, and key market drivers and restraints are discussed for 2014-2019. Also included are company profiles, market forecasts, and strategies.

SBPs overlap with aliphatics, as they are derived from aliphatics. Leading HCS suppliers do not differentiate SBPs in North America, and define them as aliphatics with narrower boiling ranges for specific applications that do not necessarily require an ASTM Stoddard solvent. Due to definitional overlaps with aliphatics and paraffins, SBP market size is estimated to be high, when Exxon, Shell, Calumet, and Citgo products with SBP features are included.
