Asia-Pacific Region Expected to Dominate the Market

· The Asia-Pacific region dominates the global market. With the growing demand for apparel and automotive and industrial textile from countries such as China, India, and Japan, the usage of textile chemicals is increasing in the region.

· China’s textile and apparel industry is one of its major industries. China's textile industry continued steady expansion in the first ten months of 2021, according to data from the country’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. The combined operating revenue of major textile enterprises in China rose by 14.2% Y-o-Y to reach CNY 4.13 trillion (USD 650.4 billion) in that period.

· China is the largest market for the automotive textile industry. China was the largest passenger car manufacturer in the world, reporting an estimated 21.4 million units produced in 2020. The number of units manufactured in China was well ahead of the production volumes of other countries. Thus, it is likely to boost the automotive textile industry in the country.

· Industrial textiles are built for a specific industry or profession and have many special qualities, like fire or water resistance. In India, growing end-user industries, like automobiles, healthcare, sports and infrastructure, and ongoing industrial development are supporting the growth of industrial textiles.

· All the aforementioned factors are anticipated to boost the overall demand for wet chemicals in Asia-Pacific during the forecast period.
