Drivers & Restraints-

Rising Initiatives by Companies to Develop Eco-friendly Reagents will Favor Growth

Several manufacturers are nowadays investing huge sums in research & development activities to create novel eco-friendly reagents. These factors are set to drive the demand for functional textile finishing agents in the coming years. However, some selective chemical finishing agents, namely, formaldehyde perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs) and chlorine bleach have harmful effects on humans and the environment. It may obstruct the functional textile finishing agents market in the near future.

Functional textile finishing agents help in enhancing a fabric’s appearance. At the same time, they make the fabric resistant to odor, flame, chemicals, UV light, and water. Also, functional textiles are versatile. Therefore, they are extensively utilized in a wide range of applications, such as construction, air-conditioning & ventilation, gas filtrations, automotive, chemical, pharmaceuticals, and healthcare industries. They possess numerous properties, such as waterproof, high-temperature, and anti-static. Hence, they are being used to develop smart textiles.

Regional Analysis-

Presence of Prominent Manufacturers to Boost Growth in Asia Pacific

Regionally, Asia Pacific is anticipated to dominate throughout the forthcoming period by generating the largest functional textile finishing agents market share.
