The global sulfur dyes market is expected to grow over the forecast period on account of technological developments in the textile industry. Sulfur dyes have a high molecular weight which is expected to make it a favorable dye in the textile industries. In the current scenario, many colorants available in the market contain sulfur in them but they are not sulfur dyes. They are available in different forms such as grains, powders, liquids, pre-reduced powders, water-soluble-brands, and dispersed pastes. They are widely used in the dyeing industry as they are less expensive owing to which healthy growth is expected over the forecast period. Cotton based textile industries emerged as major sulfur dyes consumers. Being less expensive along with easy availability are key factors expected to positively impact the global market growth over the forecast period. In addition, they are easy to apply and simple to wash which is expected to make the product market more preferable over the forecast period.
Sulfur dyes manufactured are mostly black colored followed by blue, brown, and green shades, which are used in wide fabrics range such as cotton, nylon, and synthetics. When common salt is used with sulfur dyes, it acts as a catalyst, which enables the absorption process. The major application industry is textile industry. Growing textile industry demand on account of technological advancement is expected to propel the global industries over the forecast period. Stringent government regulations on account of rising environmental concerns is expected to hinder the market growth. Sulfur oxides are highly complex in nature and consist of polysulfide & chromospheres side chains. They are not soluble in water but in alkaline conditions, they get converted into leuco form. In leuco form, sulfur dyes are soluble in water and also display higher fiber affinity. After sulfur dyes are absorbed by fibers, they are again converted into insoluble components. In addition, sulfur is highly toxic in nature. Therefore, such properties are expected to further hamper growth across the globe.
The global sulfur dyes market is segmented on the basis of products. The product category is segmented into CI leuco sulfur dyes, CI condensed sulfur dyes, CI sulfur dyes, and CI solubilized sulfur dyes. CI leuco sulfur dyes exist in soluble leuco form. CI condensed sulfur dyes contain little amount of sulfur and are produced in a traditional way. CI sulfur dyes are insoluble in water and are applied in alkaline reduced form and are oxidized in an insoluble form on fiber. Asia Pacific was the key region holding the largest market share and is expected to follow this trend over the forecast period. Owing to the huge presence of large scale and small scale textile industries, China was dominating the regional market. Rigorous government rules in North America and Europe were obstructing the market growth owing to which a slow growth rate is expected in these regions over the forecast period.
The global market is highly fragmented in nature. Key players operating in sulfur dyes market across the globe are Qingdao Sanhuan Colorchem Co., Venus Dye Chem, ABS Laboratories and Sinochem Tianjin Co., Ltd. Companies are expected to pay attention in their research and development activities to find out other useful sulfur dyes application along with minimizing its health & environmental impacts including toxic sulfur impacts, which is expected to help industry participants to increase their profitability over the forecast period. Another reason for continuing their research and development activities is to comply with the government’s stringent rules and develop bio-based eco-friendly products to penetrate the new market as well as increasing their market scope.

The shortage in supply of raw materials from Chinese manufacturers has resulted in a severe demand-supply gap. The manufacturers are further expected to be stranded on raw material orders owing to the logistics industry being significantly impacted due to lockdown amid COVID-19. However, the producers are expected to move away from China aiming to reduce the future risks that would affect the business and to reduce the manufacturers' cluster in a single country in order to smoothen the supply chain. The report will account for Covid19 as a key market contributor.
