Textile chemicals have symbiotic relationship with the textile industry, hence growth in textiles market coupled with growing textile trade is anticipated to positively influence the textile chemicals market in India. For the production of final product, a textile has to go through numerous chemicals and water intensive processes.

In addition, more than hundred chemicals are used during textile processing and manufacturing, which are broadly classified into colorants and auxiliaries. It is expected that by 2018, Auxiliaries will hold major market share of Indian textile chemicals market because of the increasing domestic and international demand for quality textiles and technical textiles.

The market for auxiliaries will also grow due to growing exports of textiles in foreign markets, such as United States and Western Europe, which demand high quality products.

According to recently published report by TechSci Research “India Textile Chemicals Market Forecast & Opportunities 2018”, the Indian market for textile chemicals is expected to cross US$ 1.7 Billion (Rs. 9,500 Crores) by 2018. Indian market for textile chemicals is highly fragmented with majority share being held by the unorganized/ minor players. However, the share of organized/ major players is expected to increase by 2018 as a result of increasing preference for quality products as well as growing market penetration of technical textiles.

Chemicals such as formaldehyde and azo dyes that are used in textile processing are hazardous to the environment. As a result, manufacturers of textile chemicals are investing in R&D and are opting for green solutions in order to produce eco-friendly textile chemicals. The textile chemical producers are increasing the usage of bio-auxiliaries and other environment friendly materials to decrease the overall pollution load.

The Indian textile chemical industry is also one of the major consumers of water and energy. During textile processing, around 60% of the energy consumed in the textile industry is used in wet processing. In terms of water consumption, the dyeing process requires product to water ratio of 1:200 in terms of weight.

Water and energy consumption can be reduced by novel energy conserving processes, such as beck dyeing modification, foam process, dye bath reuse, mach nozzle fabric drying, close cycle textile dyeing, ink and film application, etc.

Major end user application segments of textile chemicals are classified into apparels, home furnishing/textiles and industrial textiles. Of these, apparel segment is expected to account for the largest market share by 2018. This can be attributed to the increasing demand for fashionable and eco-compatible products.

“Healthy growth in textiles market is expected to positively influence the textile chemicals market as these chemicals are derived products and are essential for the manufacturing and processing of textiles. Increasing thrust towards exports to western regions is expected to positively drive the market for textile chemicals. In addition, the increasing investments by the industry players on eco-friendly chemicals and nanotechnology will also contribute to the market growth,” said Mr. Karan Chechi, Research Director with TechSci Research, a research based global management consulting firm.
