Textile Auxiliaries Market Size and Growth Rate From 2023 To 2032

Market Overview

The textile auxiliaries market comprises individuals and agencies involved in the process of developing, producing, and selling chemicals used during textile preparation. These chemicals are designed to either enhance the existing properties of a fabric or improve the efficiency of operations like dyeing, printing, finishing, or special effects. Textile auxiliaries are a niche market fundamentally linked to the fate of the textile industry. Having roots deep into the Neolithic age and with historical documentation indicating the use of organic agents for enhancing the appearance of fabrics, the industry's actual origin is unclear.

  • Evonik is a key player in the textile auxiliaries market. The German company boasts a massive portfolio of chemical compounds and solutions in various industries. With multiple branches in over 100 countries, Evonik generated a € 2.49 billion profit from € 18.5 billion in sales in 2022. The exact sales report showed an average positive growth of 22% in the year 2022; however, the first two quarters of the 2023 financial year showed a negative 7% and 16% growth, respectively. Sales of specialty additives and smart materials contributed significantly to the overall sales.

However, it was during the dawn of industrialization that the market for these chemical auxiliaries gained traction. With various developments driving the growth of this sector over the centuries, the textile auxiliaries market has been growing at a steady rate. Textile auxiliaries can be classified based on the application; these include dyeing process-associated chemicals, textile production-related chemicals like pre-treatment agents, finishing agents, anti-foaming chemicals, and post-preparation aids like softening products, odor absorbers, corrosion preventers, and others.

  • According to the World Integrated Trade Solution 2022 report, Turkey was the biggest importer of dyes used in dispersions and preparations. With a total of 15,891,600 kg of dyes imported from external countries, Turkey was closely followed by the European Union, having imported 5,685,070 kg of dyes for 95,153.28 thousand USD, and Korea having spent 77,884.47 thousand USD in the same year.
  • In terms of quantity, India and China have been the top exporters with 99,726,300 kg and 19,456,900 kg exports respectively. Bleaching is another essential component of natural textile preparations. Bleaching is a pretreatment process wherein the raw materials are stripped of their natural pigments in preparation for dyes and prints. Some industrially significant chemicals used in the bleaching process involve Sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl), Sodium chlorite (NaClO2), Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), etc.
  • Companies like Solvay, Dow Chemicals, and Evonik Industries AG are some of the major suppliers of bleaching agents to the industry. Bleached fabrics have a higher demand compared to unbleached fabrics, as evidenced by the 2022 trade figures. The cotton trade for towels showed a considerable margin between the bleached and unbleached variety. Bleach fabric amounted to 87715.6 thousand USD in exports compared to a much lower unbleached variety worth 347.1 thousand USD.

Regional Snapshot

Asian Pacific hosts one of the fastest-growing markets for textile auxiliaries. This is mainly due to the concentration of diverse cultures in a limited region compared to the rest of the world. A wide variety of textiles are deeply ingrained in these diverse cultures, and the growth of intercontinental movement over the centuries has brought these traditional textiles as well as their auxiliary markets to the rest of the world. Within Asia Pacific, China and India make significant contributions to the industry. Hina holds the title of the largest segment in the world in terms of production and export. At the same time, the growth of India’s domestic textile market represents the overall market growth in developing economies.

India is a significant exporter of chemical agents to over 175 countries across the globe, with China being one of its key importers. Among the massive list of chemicals traded between the two countries, dye and dye components occupy a significant portion. In order to promote such trade in the textile sector, the Indian government has implemented several export-promoting policies and schemes.

  • In June 2023, the Government of India approved 7.4 million USD worth of research and development projects for the domestic textile industry. The INR 61.09 crore investment was largely beneficial to the population reliant on the textile and its auxiliary industries.
  • One such policy allows a complete FDI under the automatic route. Marketing platforms like the Handloom Marketing Assistance (HMA) under the National Handloom Development Programme (NHDP) of the Ministry of Textiles aid weavers and textile agencies to showcase, promote and sell their products. On the other hand, applications like Welspun India help these sellers track their products and raw materials.
  • The Tamil Nadu government decided to include the Sustainable Cotton Cultivation Mission in March 2022. INR 15.32 crore was allocated to the agriculture budget for the project that would facilitate an enhanced yield t of organic cotton.
  • Sutlej Textiles and Industries Limited announced their plans for a green field project in Jammu and Kashmir, India, in May 2022. The project, estimated to cost INR 914 crore, is set to be completed in 2025 by the producer and exporter of dyed yarns. An additional 89,184 PC grey yarn and cotton mélange yarn spindles will increase the existing 4.21 lakh capacity.

Market Dynamics


Growth of the textile market

The development of the textile auxiliaries market is integrally linked with its parent textile market. With the development of a wide range of specialty textiles maintaining the need for their respective auxiliary agents, research on newer fabrics is a driving factor in the textile-related chemical market.

Changes in the lifestyle and economy of countries

Apparel has come a long way since its origins as a fundamental necessity. With rapid industrialization and subsequent economic improvement, clothing has become an outward projection of one's lifestyle rather than an essential. The trend-obsessed consumers drive the development of new chemicals to produce novel materials with vibrant colors, better designs, and innovative features.


Environmental damage and pollution 

The textile processing industry is notorious for the indiscriminate use of natural resources and process-related environmental degradation. Incidences of contamination of water bodies with dyestuff due to textile effluents and biotoxicity buildup from fabric treatment and pre-treatment plants have incensed environmentalists worldwide. The growing concern led to several protests and federal interventions that severely hindered the growth of the textile industry.


Global exposure to traditional fabrics and techniques

Every region holds a treasure trove of fabric-related arts in their culture. Cultural gatherings and international workshops grant these cultures opportunities to preserve and spread their historical textiles and their preparation and processing techniques.

Development of special-purpose fabrics

Specialty fabrics refer to those textile products that are designed to possess additional features like water-repellence, reflective technologies, heat resistance, anti-scratch features, etc. These fabrics have a considerable market in industries like aerospace, defense, architecture, and others.
