According to the recent report published by TechSci Research, United States Textile Chemicals Market Forecast and Opportunities, 2020”, the United States textile chemicals market is forecast to cross USD2 billion by 2020. The textile chemicals market is broadly classified into two different segments, i.e. auxiliaries and colorants. Due to rising labor cost internationally, domestic textile manufacturers are shifting their focus on local production, thereby reviving the textile sector in the United States. Currently, the leading manufacturers of textile chemicals operating in the United States are DuPont, DOW Chemicals and BASF. In spite of the decline in production capacity over the last few years experienced by the textile industry, the market is anticipated to recover during the forecast period due to the increasing focus on domestic production, which in turn is expected to fuel demand for textile chemicals.
