Global Textile chemicals demand stood at 1.13 Million Tonnes in 2020 and is forecast to reach 1.90 Million Tonnes by 2030, growing at a healthy CAGR of 5.35% until 2030. growth in the apparel industry coupled with rising disposable income is the major driver for the forecast period.
Textile chemicals are the chemicals that are used in the dyeing and processing of textiles to attain desired properties like color, mechanical strength, etc. Textile chemicals are of several types including colorants and auxiliaries, coating and sizing, finishing agents, surfactants, and bleaching agents. Textile chemicals find application in various types of textiles including apparel, home textile, technical textile, etc. Robust growth of the apparel market in developing economies coupled with increasing population and per capita income is expected to drive the demand for textile chemicals during the forecast period. Pollution caused by the textile dyeing and finishing industry is expected to hinder demand growth during the forecast period. Moreover, the growing fashion industry and shorter replacement cycles of the apparel industry is also another factor influencing demand growth during the forecast period.
In 2020, the spread of COVID-19 in major global economies caused nationwide lockdowns which had an impact on a number of industries. The textile was among the most affected industries during the pandemic. This had an impact on the demand for textile chemicals for the first half of 2020. The demand for textile chemicals fell during the coronavirus pandemic.
Region-wise, Asia-pacific region holds the major share of global demand for textile chemicals due to the increasing demand of end-use industries such as apparel, home textile, and technical textile. Moreover, increasing population and per capita income in emerging economies like India and China coupled with the growing fashion industry having shorter replacement cycles are expected to push the demand further in the Asia-Pacific.
