The global sulfur dyes market has been segmented on the basis of form, color, type, application, and region.
Sulfur Dyes Market Research Report -
Global Forecast till 2023
Sulfur dyes are synthetic organic dyes that are produced by reacting sulfur with amines and phenols.
They are generally water-insoluble but can be miscible in water by reacting with sodium sulfide in
alkaline medium which are known as sulfur dyes. Such dyes offer high absorption capacity, easy
availability, easily washable, and ease in application.
The global sulfur dyes market has been segmented on the basis of form, color, product type,
application, and region. Based on form, the global sulfur dyes market has been classified into granular,
powder, liquid, pre-reduced powders, dispersed pastes, and others. The powder segment accounted
for the largest market share in 2017 owing to the easy in manufacturing process and ability to be
produced in different strengths. It is widely used for dyeing cotton and other fabrics. The liquid segment
is projected to be the fastest-growing segment due to its rapid absorption in the fabric and easy
On the basis of color, the global sulfur dyes market has been divided into black, blue, brown, green,
and others. Among these colors, the black color segment dominated the global market in 2017 and is
expected to grow at a healthy CAGR during the forecast period owing to its application in vast range
of fabrics and cost-effective nature.
By product type, the global sulfur dyes market has been segmented into leuco sulfur dyes, condensed
sulfur dyes, solubilized sulfur dyes, and others. The leuco sulfur dyes segment held the largest market
share in 2017 and is expected to grow at a significant CAGR in the following years. Leuco sulfur dyes
is treated under the reduction reaction with sodium sulfide or sodium hydrosulfide to make it water-
soluble. After absorption, they are again converted to insoluble compound and can be easily washed.
Solubilized sulfur dyes also account for a substantial market share owing to its use in dyeing of
Based on application, the glob
