Textile chemicals are chemical compounds used in the processing and manufacturing of textiles. Textile chemicals enhance and optimize the manufacturing process, thereby providing outstanding properties to final products. Textile chemicals offer various properties for specific functions or a particular desirable appearance. For instance, greenhouse fabrics reflect sunrays. The textile chemicals market for technical textiles has been bifurcated in terms of product segments into coating & sizing chemicals, colorants & auxiliaries, finishing agents, surfactants, desizing agents, bleaching agents and yarn lubricants. Mobiltech was the major application segment of the Europe textile chemicals market for technical textiles at the end of 2013. The segment is expected to continue its dominance over the next six years.
