Growing manufacturing textile industry is expected to drive global anticrease agent market over the forecast period. Increasing urbanization is further augmenting the textile industry modernization owing to which global anticrease agent market is expected to witness a healthy growth over the forecast period. Developing fashion trend is also an important factor expected to boost the global anticrease agent market growth over the projected period. Advanced machines, emerging technologies, fabric innovation and huge wrinkle free or anticrease fabric demand are some factors which are expected to propel the global anticrease agent market over the forecast period. Major process involved in manufacturing textiles is finishing. In finishing process, woven is converted into usable material in which performance along with its appearance is improved. Finishing includes various techniques such as bleaching and dying process that are applied before knitting clothes whereas others are applied on grey clothes after knitting. Cotton fabric is the fabric which should be anticrease or wrinkle free on account of which they use anticrease agent in large amount as compared to any other fabric. Therefore, propelling cotton fabric consumption is expected to drive global anticrease agent demand over the forecast period. Process of giving wrinkle free or anti crease finish is termed as resin finishing. Different resin finishing methods are used for improving drape, anticrease, water repellent, feel, anti-shrinking, antisoiling, and anti-static fabric properties. Resin finishing has key objectives to strengthen the crease holding and improve dry & wet crease fabric recovery. Durable press treatment, wash & wear finishing and anticrease finishing are the major three resin finishing treatments types applied to fabrics. The only difference in wash & wear finish and anticrease finish methods are the type and crease removal level. Various resin finishing agents include acidic or alkaline catalyst, soda, softener, ash, thermoplastic resin, soap and solution containing thermosetting resin.
Resin finishing procedure is segmented on the basis of their carried out methods. Two methods that are widely used for resin finishing procedure are wet cross linking and pad dry cure. In pad dry cure method, initially the fabric is padded with resin then dried on stenter which is further cured in polymeriser. The fabric is then washed with soda ash and soap after curing in order to remove decomposed product from the fabric. In wet cross linking method, chemical reaction takes place between the cross linking agent and cellulose in acidic wet condition. In addition, the fabric is padded with thermosetting resin containing solution with an acidic thermoplastic resin or highly alkaline. Fabric is batched in wet conditions once the padding process is over and under rotation they are allowed to react for longer hours which depend upon the catalyst types. This process is followed by durable press treatment which gives high wrinkle recovery.
Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing anticrease agent market over the forecast period owing to emerging economies, growing urbanization, increasing disposable income and huge demand from cotton textile industry. India and China are the countries where huge anticrease agent market demand is highly expected over the forecast period on account of high cotton production, modernization in textile industry along with rise in living standards and growing fashion industry. North America followed by Europe is expected to lift anticrease agent market demand in near future attributable to changing trends in the fashion industry.
Key players involved in global anticrease agent market are SIAM Pro Dyechem Group, Sarex Chemicals, Golden Technologia, Golden Technologia, Finotex, Setas Color Centre, Prochem, Finotex, Zhuhai Lingxiang Chemical Co., Kunal organics Pvt Ltd, Star Orechem International Pvt Ltd, Neochem Technologies, Kolorjet Chemicals Pvt Ltd, Alam Chemicals and Rung International. Global anticrease agent market is highly fragmented in nature owing to which huge competition among regional industry participants can be expected across the globe.
