    What are textile chemicals?

    Textile chemicals are specialty chemicals that are used in different processes and treatments including dyeing, bleaching, coating, pre-treatment, printing, etc. in the production of a wide range of textiles. These chemicals enhance the appearance and durability of textiles providing properties such as fire retardancy, water resistance, anti-bacterial properties, etc. Textile chemicals undergo stringent regulation to guarantee their safety and environmental impact.


    The global textile chemicals market was badly hit by the pandemic in the year 2020. Many textile chemicals-producing countries stopped production due to lockdowns and restrictions. This led to supply chain disruption in the textile chemicals market.

    Market Dynamics

    The factors driving the growth of the textiles chemicals market are-

    • Expanding textile industry – The growth of the global textile chemicals market is closely linked to the overall growth of the textile industry. Across sectors like home furnishings, healthcare, etc., the demand for textiles is rapidly growing, and with this, there is a parallel rise in the demand for textile chemicals too.
    • Rising demand for technical textiles – The demand for technical textiles, which are used in sectors including automotive, construction, sports, etc. is growing significantly. These textiles require specialized chemicals to impart properties like durability, resistance to chemicals and temperature, etc. With this, the demand for textile chemicals is also rising substantially, as these chemicals play a massive role in pre-defining textile properties.
    • Rising sustainability demands and environmental policies – Due to stringent environmental regulations, most textile and chemical manufacturers are shifting their focus towards green chemicals. In April 2023, Erca Group – an Italian chemical company that is already known for supplying textile chemical auxiliaries by replacing petrochemicals with vegetable oil, announced that it will spin out a new business unit by 2024 to provide a wide range of new ‘green’ chemical solutions. Hence, green textile chemical is going to boost global textile chemicals in the coming years.
