n-Hexane is an organic compound that is a colourless liquid. It is extracted from crude oils and is highly flammable in nature. This is why it is mixed with solvents to be used for industrial and commercial purposes. n-Hexanes have a low boiling point, low solubility, and low surface tension due to which they can be used for various versatile purposes. Moreover, n-hexane is cost-effective and recyclable, due to which it is preferred in several end-uses in major industries. It is widely used as a cleaning agent in the textile and pharmaceutical industry. In addition, it is used in various cleansers for domestic purposes, the demand for which rocketed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is expected to aid the market growth in the forecast period.

The rising demand for edible oils is aiding the market growth. As the production of oilseeds is increasing significantly to meet the edible oil demand of the surging global population, n-hexane is being used as a solvent to extract edible oils. This is aiding the market growth. Moreover, favourable properties of n-hexane, such as low latent heat of vapourisation, make it an ideal solvent for extraction of oil from oilseeds, hence augmenting the industry growth. The increasing use of commercial hexane that contains 20%-80% of n-hexane is propelling the industry growth. Hexanes are extensively used in the commercial sector in the formulation of leather products, glues for footwear, and roofing. In addition, the wide of n-hexane in the pharmaceuticals industry in various end-uses ranging from production to cleaning owing to its minimal odour, low boiling point, and versatility is further invigorating the growth of the n-hexane industry. The use of n-hexane in industrial cleaning agents is providing further impetus to the industry growth.
