Textile Dye Market: Summary

The Global Textile Dye Market is estimated to reach USD 13.6 Billion by 2027 at a CAGR of 6%.

Textile dyes are referred as the chemicals or substances used for imparting color to the textiles. These dyes add uniform coloration with desired color fastness to the textile materials for enhancing their overall appeal. Textile dye is fixed upon certain material either through adsorption, diffusion or bonding with temperature. The textile dyes are either sourced from the natural sources such as plants or animals or are manufactured synthetically. Varied colors are obtained from these sources, which are useful for imparting distinct and attractive colors to the base material. These are extensively used to dye the polyester, cotton, nylon, wool, fur, and many other textile types.

Textile Dye Market: Drivers & Restraints

Market Drivers:

  • Growing Demand from Textile Industry

The demand of the textile dye is mainly backed by the textile industry worth . Growing textile sector across the globe is mainly due to higher disposable income and tendency of the population towards investing more in fashion and clothing. The growth is mainly growing from the European Countries, United States, China, and India. Among these, China emerged as the one of the prominent destination for textile manufacturing. In addition to this, increasing penetration of internet with emergence of the online shopping pushing the e-commerce sector upscale, which in turn, is boosting the overall textile industry.

The aforementioned factor results in growth of the textile sector, which fuels the demand of the textile dyes.

  • Rising Focus Towards Development of New Dyeing Techniques

Key players operating in the textile dyeing are focusing towards development of innovative and advanced dyeing methods to improve the clothing appearance. Some of the conventional aqueous dyeing techniques used for efficient dyeing require higher amount of water, which ultimately contributes in water pollution through generation of effluent. To overcome this, manufacturers are coming up with new technology requiring minimal amount of water with energy used for dyeing the fabrics or clothes. Emergence of new waterless technique which enables dyeing of the textiles without using water, thereby resulting in conservation of water and prevention of water pollution. With development of such techniques for textile dyeing, the market is expected to grow at a moderate pace in the years to follow.

Market Restraints:

  • Stringent Environmental Regulations

Textile industry and textile dyeing process are one of the prominent contributor to pollution. At the time of coloration, major amount of the dyes do not bind with the fabric or fiber leading to its discharge causing soil, water, and air pollution. Hence, Global Organic Textile Standards were introduced for textile processing to combat the pollution. In addition to this, some other environmental standards and measures are EKO Sustainable Textile Standard, Organic Textile Standard, Organic Fiber Standards, Standards for Processing of Organic Textile Products are also introduced for minimizing the pollution.
