How is the development of global textile additives

After more than half a century of development, the surfactant industry worldwide has matured. The textile industry production center has gradually shifted from traditional Europe and the United States to Asia due to well-known reasons, making the demand for textile auxiliaries in the Asian region grow rapidly.

There are nearly 100 categories of textile auxiliaries around the world, producing nearly 16,000 varieties, with an annual output of about 4.1 million tons. Among them, there are 48 categories of European and American textile auxiliaries, with more than 8,000 varieties; Japan has 5,500 varieties. According to reports, the sales of the world's textile auxiliaries market reached US $ 17 billion in 2004, far exceeding the sales of the dye market in 2004.
