Global Textile Sizing Chemicals Market: Introduction
The process of applying protective adhesive coating upon the surface of yarns is known as sizing. Sizing chemicals are mainly applied on warp yarns to improve their performance during the weaving process as warp yarns are subjected to abrasion with various loom components during weaving. Sizing chemicals are also used to increase the smoothness and reduce the hairiness of the warp yarn. Size coating protects yarns from abrasion and reduce warp breakage rate in the loom. Textile sizing chemicals strengthen the yarns by 10% to 20%. Different type of sizing chemicals such as antistats, antisticks, binders, cleaning agents, defoamers, dispersants, lubricants, etc. are used to avoid breakage during weaving. Depending on their end-use, different kinds of textile sizing chemicals are employed for different applications. As an example, defoamers are effectively used in jet dyeing whereas low foams are required as dispersing agents to prevent re-deposition of various dyes during the garment wash process.
Global Textile Sizing Chemicals Market: Dynamics
Sizing is an important unit operation carried out in the textile industry. Upsurge in different end-use products demand & industrial development are the two crucial factors boosting the demand for textile sizing chemicals. This, in turn, is propelling the overall growth of the global textile sizing chemicals market. Textile sizing chemicals provide lust and a silky texture to fabrics and hence, are frequently used during the creation of high value and attractive apparels. Sizing chemicals, basically, increase the absorption rate of the fabric. Increasing use of high value and environmentally friendly textiles is pumping the growth of textile sizing chemicals in the global market. Also, new sizing technology, known as semi-gelatinization, helps to reduce the sizing cost and energy consumption. These reasons have fuelled the use of textile sizing chemicals which has further led to an increase in the global textile sizing chemicals market.
Increasing cost of effluent treatments due to the use of textile sizing chemicals is an important factor restraining the growth of the global textile sizing chemicals market. Usage of latest sizing technologies such as Tayhert Technology that includes sizing chemicals technology, warp-sizing technology, biology technology, energy-saving technology and environmental friendly technology is the key trend being observed in the global textile sizing chemicals market.
