Global Scouring Agent Market Introduction
Textile industry is growing at a significant rate all over the globe. Textile chemicals are important part of textile manufacturing. Various chemical agent are used in textile manufacturing and processing. Scouring agent are used in scouring process, which comes before dyeing and printing process, in the textile processing industry. Scouring agent can be of various kinds including sizing agent, stains agent, lubricating agent, alkali-resistant agent, mercerizing agent, penetrating agent and wax removing Agent. Selection of scouring agent is done by considering the type of fabrics, and other factors such as, stains in the fabrics, and the application of the fabric. Scouring agent are water soluble powders which are generally alkaline in nature. Scouring agent are used for various purposes such as pH buffering, emulsification, dispersion, cleaning, penetration, and wetting. Sourcing agent can be different as the operating conditions changes. Effective and efficient scouring agent are being demanded by textile dyeing and printing industry, during the last decade. Innovations and development in the field of material science is pushing new product developments in the scouring agent market. This is expected to drive the demand for scouring Agent during the forecast period.
