Thedriving factor for the Textile Chemicals market is chemicals is growing demand for technical textiles. Also growing adoption of low VOC and biodegradable materials for textile manufacturing is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the growth of textile chemicals.

Coating & Sizing Agents is expected to be the fastest-growing by product type in the Textile chemicals market during the forecast period.

Coating & Sizing Agents is the fastest-growing product type segment in the Textile chemicals market. In the process of sizing, various types of materials are applied to the yarn. It is a procedure carried out by applying a protective adhesive coating on the yarn. The main objective of sizing is to provide strength and glaze to the yarn. This improves the weaving efficiency by reducing yarn breakage. Coating is the process of depositing a polymeric layer on one or both sides of the textile substrate which enhances the functional properties. The chemicals used for sizing of yarns and textile coatings are called coating & sizing agents, which constitute an integral part of textile chemicals
