Focus on Safe & Eco-friendly Chemicals Key Trend in the Market

The global textile chemicals market is in a transitional phase, with an increase in emphasis on developing skin- and eco-friendly apparel. The impact of Greenpeace’s investigation on harmful textile chemicals is evident as textile companies are regulating their supply chain stringently. According to FMI’s analysis, compliance with international regulations and focus on using safe chemicals will be the key trends in the Asia textile chemicals market during the forecast period 2014-2020.

FMI’s analysis found that the global textile chemicals industry is highly fragmented and is comprised of both big and small players catering to a fiercely competitive market. It is anticipated that to consolidate their position in the market, the key textile chemical companies will focus on developing innovative products and widening their range of offerings. Furthermore, it is anticipated that the demand for functional finishes that impart specific properties to textiles will continue to drive innovation in the market.

On the basis of product type, the textile chemicals market in Asia is segmented into textile auxiliaries and textile colourants. FMI’s research on the Asia textile chemicals market found that the demand for both these types of textile chemicals was equally strong in 2014. However, owing to the increased demand for chemicals used during the various processing stages, it is anticipated that the textile auxiliaries segment will have a slight upper hand over textile colourants by 2020. FMI projects that the textile auxiliaries segment will witness a CAGR of 8%, whereas the textile colourants segment will expand at a 7.1% CAGR.
