Drivers – Azo Dyes Market

Extensive applications in the textile industry and low production cost

The global azo dye market is primarily driven by its extensive applications in the textile industry. These dyes are heavily employed in the textile industry because of their properties such as bright colors and excellent fastness. The majority of the demand growth occurs from the developing regions. The increasing disposable income coupled with growing infrastructural facilities is driving the textile industry in these countries. As the textile sector accounts for more than half of the total azo dye demand, the upcoming textile production will boost the market for azo dyes during the forecast period. Manufacturing azo dyes is pretty easy and cheap as the components of the dyes are cheap and easily available. In addition, while producing it, different levels can be set, and adjusted easily according to the requirement. Furthermore, the energy required for the process is also less, as the composition of chemical structure happens at or below the room temperature. In fact, all the chemical processes of azo dye are done using water. And it is easy, and cheap to avail water, even cleaning and disposing off is simple. Due to all these reasons, azo dyes are cheap, easily produced, and widely used. Azo dyes are consistent compared to other natural food dyes. They are steady and firm, when compared to the pH series of food. They do not fade when exposed to light and oxygen, and are also heat resistant. Therefore, these factors are driving their demand.

Challenges – Azo Dyes Market 

Toxicity of azo dyes

Color has an important role to play in the textile, food, printing, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic industries. Azo dye is extensively used as a coloring agent in most of the industrial processes. However, it has become a matter of debate regarding the toxic and carcinogenic components it contains. It has also posed a challenge for the textile industries for its removal from industrial wastewater. Azo dyes are consistent compared to other natural food dyes. In addition, the use of azo dyes in food products has been a matter of concern. Firstly, it has been noticed that the body goes through a reaction when it absorbs certain azo dyes. This reaction produces certain cancer-causing amines. The dye itself is not harmful. However, when it breaks down, the amine that is produced is dangerous. Therefore, stringent rules have been implemented to ban the dyes which have cancer-causing amines. Therefore, these factors are restricting azo dyes market.
