Market Overview

The global textile dye market is projected to register a CAGR of over 4% during the forecast period (2021-2026).

The market was negatively impacted by COVID-19 in 2020. Considering the pandemic scenario, the clothing and apparel manufacturing activities were stopped temporarily during the government-imposed lockdown to curb the spread of COVID-19 cases, which decreased the production of wearing apparel. For example, according to Eurostat, between January 2021 and January 2020, the production of wearing apparel dropped by 24.4%, which decreased the demand for the textile dye market. However, the demand for home and healthcare textiles increased significantly during the current situation, owing to the increased demand from hospital textiles, including bed sheets and gowns, with an increase in people's preference to stay at home, stimulating the demand for the market studied.

  • Over the short term, the growing demand for textile dye from the apparel industry is expected to drive the market's growth.
  • The stringent environmental regulations and the unfavorable conditions arising due to the impact of COVID-19 are expected to hinder the growth of the market studied.
  • Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the global market, with the largest consumption being registered in countries such as India and China.
