Bio-based & Low-VOC Paints Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 – 2019

VOCs (volatile organic compounds) are substances such as formaldehyde which are used in paints to allow them to dry faster. These are highly toxic to humans and high levels of VOC in paints results in the release of toxic VOC fumes for a long period of time. Low VOC paints use water as a solvent instead of petroleum-based materials. Bio-based paints use raw materials derived from natural sources such as plants and natural minerals which include plant oils, plant dyes, essential oils, clay, beeswax, mineral dyes, and talcum among others. Bio-based and low-VOC paints embed low VOC levels in paints made from natural sources of plants and animals.
