South Korea Aromatic Solvents Market to Grow at a CAGR of 12.4% During 2024-2032, Aided by Increasing Demand for Aromatic Solvents in Various Sectors

South Korea Aromatic Solvents Market

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘South Korea Aromatic Solvents Market Report and Forecast 2024-2032’, the market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 12.4% between 2024 and 2032. The market is being aided by the increasing demand for aromatic solvents in various sectors.

Aromatic solvents are widely employed across numerous industries due to their effectiveness as degreasers. This includes applications in petrochemicals, paints, cleaners, dyes, and more. Their corrosion resistance properties also make them valuable in the oil and gas sector. The South Korea aromatic solvents market growth is expected to benefit from the anticipated growth of the construction and automotive industries during the forecast period.


The agricultural sector is contending with significant challenges, driven by population growth, the escalating demand for food and crops, and the increasing frequency of climate-induced natural disasters. In response, modern agriculture is embracing advanced methods and agrochemicals to enhance crop yield and quality. In this context, the development of innovative crop protection solutions is essential. These solutions should be not only effective and economical but also ecologically sound, user-friendly, and leverage safe aromatic solvents. As the industry is anticipated to grow, the demand for aromatic solvents in South Korea is expected to rise accordingly.


Beyond their well-established applications, aromatic solvents are finding growing use in industrial cleaning solutions, foundry resins, insecticides, adhesives, and oilfield chemicals. This diversification, coupled with the anticipated surge in demand from the paints and coatings sector due to automotive industry expansion, is expected to significantly propel the market within the assessment period. Furthermore, South Korea's established presence of major automakers is projected to be a key driver of domestic demand for aromatic solvents.


Shell PLC (NYSE: SHEL) offers a broad selection of aromatic solvents. This includes both pure aromatics, such as toluene and xylene (isomer mix), and a range of heavier C9 and C10 aromatic solvents marketed under the ShellSol* brand. Renowned for their versatility and high boiling points, ShellSol grades cater to diverse customer needs. Customers can choose from a convenient purchasing approach that best suits their requirements, including direct contact with Shell's customer service team, distributors for smaller orders, or e-channels like Elemica.
