Textile chemicals are used in the manufacturing process of textiles, starting from pre-treatment to finishing of textiles, to enhance and optimize the textile manufacturing processes for specific functionalities, texture, and appearance.

The global textile chemicals market was valued at USD 26.5 billion in 2018 and is projected to register a CAGR of 4.5%, reaching a value of USD 36 billion by the end of 2025. The growth of the global textile chemicals market is primarily driven by the significant demand for home furnishing and technical textiles across the globe. The rising disposable income of the consumers has resulted in an increased home renovation activity, which is driving the demand for home textiles, thereby the demand for textile chemicals. The rising demand for commercial spaces due to the growth of the service industries such as information technology and telecommunications, banking, financial services, and insurance is leading to increased construction activities, which, in turn, is driving the demand for technical textiles such as upholstery, curtains, rugs, carpets, and table linens and contributing to the growth of the global textile chemicals market. The rise in the demand for technical textiles is attributed to the favorable government policies and initiatives boosting infrastructure spending, chemical manufacturing, and others. For instance, according to the US Census Bureau, the overall construction spending in the US stood at USD 1,246,000 million as of 2017, of which USD 276,510 million was spent on non-residential construction. Technical textiles are used in major end-use industries such as automotive, construction, packaging, health care, and agriculture. The growth of these industries owing to rapid industrialization, infrastructure development, as well as consumer spending is expected to be one of the major drivers of the global market growth. Moreover, the constantly changing fashion trends and growing population coupled with the high disposable income of consumers are likely to drive the demand for casualwear and apparel during the forecast period. The introduction of advanced technologies, e.g., smart clothing, as well as growing adoption of low VOC and biodegradable materials in textile manufacturing,  are likely to offer lucrative opportunities for the manufacturers of textile chemicals.
