Textile Dyes Market size is estimated to reach US$14.8 billion by 2027 after growing at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2022 to 2027. Textile dyes are the colorants that when added to fabric gives it a color that stays there permanently through repeated use. Fabrics like polyester, wool, silk, nylon, cotton, acrylic etc., are colored through the use of dyes. As dyes absorb and reflect light so they provide a sense of color and beauty to the fabric. An increase in consumer demand for different & aspiring clothing patterns, investments by textile dye companies in APAC and rapid urbanization are acting as drivers for the textile dyes market. However, textile dyes are highly soluble and do high damage to water bodies, like preventing light penetration through water, affecting water oxygen level and also releasing untreated effluents in water leads to high chemical oxygen demand. Moreover, water and air pollution caused by textile dyes lead to health problems like oxidative stress, damage to the lungs, liver and also cancer. Hence all these factors are expected to negatively impact the textile dyes industry.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID pandemic has negatively impacted the global textile market as manufacturing activities of clothing and apparel was halted due to the lockdown and other restrictions imposed by the governments of countries. This caused a decrease in the production of clothing and apparel which led to a decrease in sales of clothing items as there were fewer options in the market. For instance, as per Eurostat the production and retail sales in Q3 of 2020 for EU countries dropped by 15% & 9.4% for clothing and 7% & 9.7% for textiles, mostly due to decreased interest to buy clothes by people. As dyes are used to add color to fabrics, so due to less production of clothing & apparel, the demand for dyes went down in the textile industry. Besides this, the economic disruption caused by the pandemic has created pressure on brands and mills to provide better value products, which has put textile dyes companies under more pressure as they are struggling to deliver effective dye solutions that would help these brands to differentiate and win market share, and would enable mills to upgrade their productivity.

Textile Dye Market Challenge

Stringent Environmental Regulations

As the dyeing process consumes a lot of water and dyes are highly soluble, so during the dyeing process the number of dyes that enters the waste stream leads to the coloration of natural water bodies, and from causing damage to plant life like deformed growth, oxidative stress to causing health problems for humans like cancer, tumors in the liver and hemopoietic system, textile dying industry has become a big polluting factor. To stop this damage to the environment and human life, various government and environmental agencies have put regulations on the manufacturing of dyes. For instance, China’s environment protection policy led to Yabang shutting down some of its subsidiaries of dyes production. In the EU, REACH’s regulations state that producers or importers of chemicals like azo dyes found in textile products should register this substance with European Chemical Agency (ECHA). If they fail then that substance and the product it is used in shall be turned away from the EU market. As per the rule of the National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollution (NESHAP) dated 7th July 2020, facilities used in printing, coating, dyeing of fabric should fall under Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAP) emission standards reflecting the application of the maximum achievable control technology (MACT). Hence all these regulations and policies have disrupted the manufacturing process of dyes in some places as it had led to the shutdown of some textile dye plants
