What is the Commercial Potential of Textile Sizing Chemicals?

Textile sizing chemicals are mostly used in the technical process of sizing of fibers and yarns to improve their functionality, flexibility, elasticity, and bacterial resistance. Sizing chemicals also help in increasing the smoothness of yarn and reduce the hairiness of the same.

Sizing chemicals and the characteristics of the sizing materials, sizing operation, and yarn parameters all play a crucial role in the efficiency of warp yarn during weaving. As a result, sizing is the most important aspect of weaving, which also makes textile sizing chemicals an important part of the textile and weaving industry.

Category-wise Insights

Why is Starch Popular in Textile Sizing Chemicals? 

Accounting for almost half of the overall market share, the starch segment is expected to drive market growth substantially. The starch segment is sub-segmented into two types – native starch and modified starch. Modified starch helps lower the viscosity of size paste to a desired level and enhances penetration of sizing liquor in warp yarn, thereby improving tensile strength. It also plays a vital role in the sizing of yarn for shuttle-less weaving.

What’s the Market Share of Binders in Textile Sizing Chemicals?

The binders segment is expected to hold around 51% market share in terms of product, by the end of 2031. Its product application (manufacture of pigment printing mixtures that are used to color textiles) makes it important for the manufacture of pigment colored fabrics.

Why Does the Apparel Industry Hold a Higher % Share in the Textile Sizing Chemicals Industry?

The apparel end-use industry accounts for 70% of the market share by end use, and is expected to expand at significant rate of more than 6% throughout the forecast period. The apparel industry consists of companies that design and sell clothing, footwear, and accessories.

It includes the fashion industry, garments, and clothing industry. The apparel manufacturing industry produces many knitted clothing products, such as hosiery and socks, shirts, sweaters, and underwear. It also produces many cut-and-sew clothing items such as dresses, suits, shirts, and trousers. All of these make use of textile sizing chemical in a big way, thereby aiding market growth.

Competitive Landscape

The textile sizing chemicals market is a highly fragmented space in which more than half of the market value share is owned by key players. Across the value chain, the industry has strong alliances.
