Reactive Dyes Market 2017: Size, Competitors Strategy, Regional Analysis and Growth by Forecast to 2023

Reactive Dyes are colored organic compounds, primarily used for tinting textiles. The most important property of reactive dyes is the formation of covalent bonds with the substrate to be colored, this dye forms a chemical bond with fiber, which is the main component of cotton fibers. Reactive dyes are mainly used in silk, nylon, cotton, and wool.  Any fluctuation in the market of these industry will direct impact on the reactive dyes market.

Growth in various industry such as paper, textile, wood, leather, and others are the major drivers of reactive dyes market. Asia Pacific region is expected to be the fastest growing market for reactive dyes where growth is driven by the countries such as India, China, Indonesia, and Japan. Furthermore, growing demand for textiles will propel the global market of reactive dyes as well. On the other hand, stringent environmental regulations for synthetic based reactive dyes can hamper the market growth in forecasted period.

Key Players:
Key players of the Global Reactive Dyes Market are Huntsman International LLC. (US), BASF SE (Germany), NIPPON KAYAKU CO. LTD. (Japan), Sumika Chemtex Co., Ltd. (Japan), Archroma (Switzerland), Colourtex (India), Kiri Industries Ltd. (India), IM Dye Chem (India), Roop dyes and Intermediates (India), Kevin India Co. (India), and others.

Market Overview:

Reactive dyes is used in various applications such as cotton, paper, nylon, leather, and others by different types such as reactive cold dyes, reactive hot dyes, reactive ‘HE’ dyes, reactive ‘ME’ dyes, and others. Additionally, the growing demand in the textile industry is a key factor to drive the reactive dyes market. On the basis of region, the market share of reactive dyes is high in Asia Pacific due to huge utilization in growing industry such as textile, paper, and others. It is also expected to increase at a higher growth rate as compared to other regions such as North America, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East & Africa.

Market Segmentation:

Global reactive dyes market is segmented by types, function, application, and region. On the basis of types the reactive dyes market is segmented into reactive cold dyes, reactive hot dyes, reactive ‘HE’ dyes, reactive ‘ME’ dyes, and others. Reactive cold dyes are used for various applications and have been appreciated for colorfastness. These dyes have application in silk, wool, nylon and modified acrylic fibers from neutral to acid dye bath. The important features of these dyes are highlight fastness on cellulosic fibers and fabric, exceptionally brilliant colors, excellent yield in all application, high exhaustion and fixation efficiency, helpful to dye cotton hosiery goods on winches, nontoxic, environment friendly, high level of dyeing properties, hygienically processed. Reactive hot dyes are highly applicable on cellulosic materials by both dyeing and printing methods. These reactive dyes have lower reactivity with cotton and other fabrics. Reactive highly exhaust (HE) dyes, are having low reactivity and high substantivity. These dyes are high fixation on dyeing fabric blends on polyester, cotton. These dyes are suitable for exhaust dyeing of medium to heavy colors as high color produce. Reactive mild exhaust (ME) dyes are applicable in dyeing, printing in various cellulosic material such as cotton etc. The major advantage of using these dyes that these gives high degree of exhaustion & fixation rates also offer exceptional leveling properties & alkali stability.

On the basis of functions the reactive dyes market is segmented into monochlorotriazine, vinyl sulphone, bi-funcational, and others. Among all, Monochlorotriazine dyes are less reactive as compared with vinyl sulphone dyes. Vinyl sulphone dyes are moderately reactive. These dyes show exceptional fixation properties under proper alkaline condition. Furthermore, bi-functional dye is a form of reactive dye which contains more than one type of reactive group. These dyes are designed in such a manner to have capacity to react with fibre in more than as simple way.

On the basis of application the reactive dyes market is segmented into cotton, paper, nylon, leather, and others (wood, etc.). Among all applications, cotton and paper has occupied the highest market share, especially in Asia Pacific region. The increasing demand of reactive dyes in various industries such as, textiles, paper, and others will boost the market of reactive dyes in forecasted period.
