What are Solvents?

Most solvents are in liquid form. Their function is to suspend, dissolve, or extract other substances. They have to do so without changing the chemical makeup of the solvent or the other substances. Different solvents meet specific needs to make products with the best performance features. For example, inks that don’t smudge are solvents, and so are spray paints that dry fast and don’t clog the spray nozzle. Another example is regular paints that look good and last a long time. Yet another is strong cleaners that are good for tough, greasy jobs.

We use solvents for everything from dry cleaning chemicals to nail polish remover. They are also present in some drugs. Most are harmless, but some are unsafe. Many of the solvents in use today are volatile organic compounds. Thus, the solvent industry needs to find safer, more efficient substitutes. Most solvents are liquid, but they can also be solids or gases.

Why are Solvents Important?

Solvents are vital in industry. They can dilute, dissolve, and absorb other compounds. They do so without affecting their chemical properties.

Many people refer to water as the universal solvent – although it isn’t truly universal. They refer to it in that way because it dissolves more stuff than any other liquid. Its property as a solvent is vital to life. Why? Because it can transport minerals, chemicals, and essential nutrients. Solvents are also components of many products vital to modern living.

Market Research starts with figuring out what data your business needs. Once you get that info, you can have it analyzed. For example, demand for chemical solvents from various end-use industries (such as construction) is rising. Researchers expect this will have a positive impact and drive the global market. From this example, it’s easy to see how you can derive insights that will help you make business decisions. The last part is vital because our concern is about business outcomes. We use research to discover problems at the start of the journey, and then progress with it to test solutions.

Qualitative Market Research is vital. It’s a great help whether you want to set up a solvent company or lead a new project. So is Quantitative Market Research.
