As per the research conducted by Persistence Market Research, demand for textile sizing chemicals across Asia is expected to reach a value of US$ 818.7 Mn by the end of 2033. China and India are anticipated to remain key countries in the market and are forecast to expand at a CAGR of 7.0% during the same period. Nearly 2% of the market for specialty chemicals is made up of textile chemicals, which include textile auxiliaries and textile colorants.
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 reducing hairiness of the same.
Effectiveness of the warp yarn during weaving is significantly influenced by the sizing chemicals, the qualities of the sizing materials, the size procedure, and the yarn parameters. Because size is the most crucial component of weaving, textile sizing chemicals play a significant role in the textile and weaving industries.
The market of textile sizing chemicals in Asia had witnessed about 3.8% year-over-year growth in the past years. Demand has been consistently increasing due to the demand for sustainable/eco-friendly textiles. Key trends of advanced technologies and the growing demand for biodegradable materials in the industry of textiles are also leading to the high usage of sizing chemicals in the industry.
Based on the current estimations, the market of Asia textile sizing chemicals is to witness a growth outlook of about 7.0% over the period of 2033 and 2033. Demand for Asia textile sizing chemicals has been consistently increasing due to the rising for smart textiles around the world, the technical textiles sector—which includes textiles for automotive applications, medical, geotextiles, geotextiles, protective clothing, and sporting—is anticipated to offer lucrative opportunities to market participants in the textile sizing chemicals space.
The class of textile chemicals includes substances that are employed throughout various phases of textile processing, such as preparation, dyeing, printing, and finishing. When textiles are made, they are frequently utilized to improve and offer the required qualities and colour.
Sizing agents are widely utilized in the production of textiles, and are anticipated to develop at the fastest rate throughout the foreseeable period. In order to prevent yarns like cotton, linen, and polyester from breaking during weaving and to minimize machine downtime, sizing agents are employed in the textile industry.
Additionally, while weaving, sizing agents enable yarn to tolerate significant mechanical stress. Sizing agents lessen the hairiness of the yarns while increasing abrasion resistance and strength.
However, for the present demand and high-performance looms, natural sizing agents like starch are inadequate. The market is anticipated to be driven by the rise in the usage of synthetic sizing agents including polyvinyl alcohol, Carboxymethyl cellulose, and polyacrylates to meet current needs.
According to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), the textile industry of China witnessed a strong expansion in 2021 as its revenue and profits recorded double-digit growth. Textile firms with annual operating revenue of 20 million yuan ($3.16 million) and above-recorded profits of 267.7 billion yuan in 2021, up 25.4 percent year on year (YoY).
In addition, the rising use of high-value, environmentally sustainable textiles are propelling the growth of the sizing agents market in the forecast period. As a result, the demand for textile sizing agents is growing at a rapid pace.
For reducing environmental pollution from the textile industry, keratin is being used as an alternative to PVA (polyvinyl alcohol). Keratin is used as a warp sizing agent on polyester and polyester-cotton blends and provides similar sizing efficiency as compared to polyvinyl alcohol, apart from being degradable in activated sludge.
The most popular sizing agent is polyvinyl alcohol, which is not biodegradable in textile effluent treatment plants. Keratin, however, can provide similar sizing performance, is biodegradable, and is also cost-effective. Keratin has been used as a potential sizing agent for polyester/cotton and polyester materials and the sizing performance was estimated as comparable to PVA.
Keratin improved cohesion and strength in polyester/cotton fabrics, but it had poor abrasion resistance. Keratin showed a substantial decrease in COD (Chemical Oxygen Demand) in activated sludge, whereas with polyvinyl alcohol there was a negligible decrease in COD. Overall, the low-cost and biodegradable keratin has shown the potential to substitute PVA in sizing applications. These are the factors hampering the textile sizing chemicals market in Asia.
Why Does China Account for a significant share of the Asia Textile Sizing Chemicals market?
China will continue to be one of the most productive markets throughout the projection period due to strong exports in the textile and apparel sector, which account for 37% of total exports, as well as high demand for home textiles in the APAC region as a result of a trend toward more comfortable and sustainable clothing, which is anticipated to accelerate the expansion of China's textile chemicals industry.
China continues to be one of the world's largest markets for textile sizing chemicals as a result of these characteristics, which is always advantageous for major companies in the textile chemicals industry. Strong presence of key market players in the country has boosted the supply. Significant growth in the chemical industry has benefited the market growth.
Why India is a key emerging market for Asia Textile Sizing Chemicals?
Due to India's large production in the textile and chemical industries, rising per capita income, favourable demographics, and trade regulations are anticipated to open up profitable commercial possibilities for textile sizing chemicals in the forthcoming years. With rise in manufacturing sector owing to increase in investments especially in the specialty chemical sector, demand will witness a substantial rise over the forecast period.
Additionally, India offers a wealth of opportunities owing to the large variety of fibres and yarns (such as cotton, wool, and silk) that are readily available. According to India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), Cotton production in India is projected to reach 7.2 million tonnes (~43 million bales of 170 kg each) by 2030, driven by increasing demand from consumers.
Which application holds the largest share of the Asia Textile Sizing Chemicals Market?
Apparel will remain the largest application by value and volume and this high percentage may be attributed to a number of developments, including increasing disposable incomes, the burgeoning millennial and Gen Z populations that are being affected by social media and fashion idols, and the expanding e-commerce industry.
According to India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), India’s textile and apparel exports (including handicrafts) stood at US$ 44.4 billion in FY22, a 41% increase YoY. Exports of readymade garments including cotton accessories stood at US$ 6.19 billion in FY22. The demand for textile chemicals in clothing for pre-treatment, dyeing, and printing applications is anticipated to rise in apparel production.
Which is the most preferred material type of Textile Sizing Chemicals?
Among the product types, Starch is expected to grow at a faster pace in terms of market volume by the end of 2033. The starch segment, which holds over half of the total market share, is anticipated to significantly fuel market growth.
Native starch and modified starch are the two forms of starch that form the starch segment. By enhancing the penetration of sizing liquor into the warp yarn and lowering the viscosity of size paste to a desirable level, modified starch increases tensile strength. Additionally, it is essential for the size of yarn for shuttle-less weaving.
More than half of the market value share is shared by the major players in the highly fragmented market for textile sizing chemicals in Asia. Strong relationships exist throughout the sector along the whole value chain. Companies in the textile sizing chemicals market in Asia intend to strategically collaborate with end users and local distributors in order to satisfy the demands of a growing customer base.
To establish a presence, providers of chemicals for textile sizing employ acquisition and geographic growth tactics. Brand awareness and active marketing make it challenging for new competitors in the market for textile sizing chemicals. These developments are being used by companies to gain a competitive edge.
