The global cationic dyes market size is expected to witness a substantial rise in the coming future, and register a significant CAGR over the forecast period (2019 - 2027).

Market Overview

Dyes are substances that are used to impart colour to the substrate that they are applied to such as leather, paper, and textiles, in such a way that they will not be easily affected by exposure to water, light, heat, and other factors. Cationic dyes, also known as basic dyes, are soluble in water and are primarily applied to acrylic fibers or paper, with acetic acid to support the uptake of the dye to the material. Cationic dyes can create bright shades of colour on textiles. Basic dyes are not applied to cotton fabrics as the structure of cotton is not large enough to induce substantiveness. Basic dyes are called cationic dyes because they can be dissociated into positively charged ions in an aqueous solution.

Market Dynamics

In addition to being the dedicated dye for acrylic fibers, cationic dyes can also be used to modify dyeing and printing of polyester and nylon. It is primarily used for dyeing the polyacrylonitrile fibers. Demand for cationic dyes is mainly attributed to demand from the textile, leather, and paper industries. The growth of the cationic dyes market depends on the trends in the textile industry, which, in turn, is determined by demographics, population size, disposable income, and per capita income of a particular region. Moreover, demand for cationic dyes is also driven by the fashion industry where there is a continuous demand for bright colour shades and several colour combinations. Cationic dyes are used for the manufacturing of blue carbon paper in the paper industry, for creating daylight fluorescent pigments, and in the process of manufacturing crack detection inks. Cationic dyes also have application in the leather industry for dyeing leather as they are effective when used together with vegetable leather. Moreover, cationic dyes also find application in the wood industry for adding colours and shades to products. However, growth of the global cationic dyes market may be hindered by regulations implemented by environmental agencies in North America and Europe.

Market Outlook

Asia Pacific has accounted for the largest market share over the past few years owing to high demand for cationic dyes from China. The trend is expected to continue over the forecast period, with Asia Pacific dominating the global market in terms of consumer demand and market size. Presence of key players coupled with rapid expansion of end use industries such as leather and paper is projected to facilitate the market growth in the region. Moreover, the demand for cationic dyes in Asia Pacific is driven by the increasing population, rising disposable income and gross domestic product of emerging economies such as India. Furthermore, other countries such as Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan are expected to contribute significantly to the overall market share during the forecast period. Europe is projected to follow after Asia Pacific in terms of demand for cationic dyes. Countries such as France, Spain, U.K., and Italy are expected to account for the largest demand in the region. The North America cationic dyes market is estimated to witness stable growth, which will be mostly attributable to demand from the U.S. With regards to other regions, Middle East, Africa, and Latin America are likely to witness positive growth in the near future.

Key Players

The global cationic market is dominated by key players such as Tianjin Tianshun Chemical Dyestuff, and Zhejiang Longsheng Group, China LANXESS AG, Atul Limited, The Dow Chemical Company, and BASF SE among several others.
