Global Vat Dyes Market: Snapshot
The vat dyes market is likely to emerge as a prominent segment in the global dyes and pigments market over the coming years. Thus, trends and opportunities in the dyes and pigments market directly influence the global vat dyes market. The rising demand for sustainable textiles from the automobile and agricultural sectors is stoking the growth of the global vat dyes market. Moreover, the increasing consumer inclination towards organic and nontoxic dyes is compelling manufacturers to step up their investments and involve more aggressively in research and development of vat dyes.
However, the volatile prices of raw materials are acting as a major impediment to the growth of the market. Moreover, production overcapacity is negatively impacting the growth of the market. Both these factors, collectively, are creating a pricing pressure on players in the global vat dyes market. On the other hand, technological advancements also play a vital role in the development of the market. Improvements and innovations production techniques are helping make vat dyes as colorfast as synthetic chemical dyes, thus promoting their adoption among a wider base of end users.

Global Vat Dyes Market: Overview
Vat dyes – water insoluble, natural coloring agents – find application in dyeing plant fibers such as cellulosic and cotton. Vat dyes have washing, rubbing, light, and chlorine fastness. They are used to dye cotton yarns which are used in denim manufacturing. To make these dyes water soluble, reducing agents such as sodium dithionite and sodium hydrosulphite are used. The process is known as vatting. To expedite the vatting process other chemicals such as potassium dichromate or sodium borate may also be added. Indigo is the most commonly used Vat dye. Shades of red, orange, and green are also used commercially.

Depending upon the product type, vat dyes can be segmented into special dyeing dyes (IK), warm dyeing dyes (IW), and normal dyeing dyes. As the name suggests, different temperatures are required to achieve the dying effect. A sizeable proportion of vat dyes need oxygen to fix the dye, however a special class of vat dyes require light for the same. Such light activated vat dyes are referred to as “inko dyes.” Vat dyes are applied by continuous dipping of the fabric in a vessel containing activated vat dyes. Other means of applying the dye are pad-jig and pad-stream dyeing, which are semi-continuous.
Global Vat Dyes Market: Trends and Opportunities
Majorly boosting the global market for vat dyes is the burgeoning demand for colored textiles from the dynamic fashion industry. Additionally, the soaring popularity of natural plant fibers such as jute, hemp, cotton, flax, and other cellulosic fibers among the rising ranks of discerning consumers preferring organic products is also filliping the market. Plant fibers, especially cotton is seeing an upswing in its demand due to the increasing temperatures worldwide. In fact, there has been an increased uptake of cotton yarn for the manufacture of denim these days. This trend too has bolstered demand for vat dyes.

Besides, the growing spending capacity of people, especially in the densely populated emerging economies of the world is also slated to push up the demand for dyed apparels. This in turn, would also bolster the vat dyes market. Further, paper dyeing is slated to open up new avenues for the market for vat dyes as handmade paper is made up of cellulosic fibers. One factor posing a roadblock to the market is the fact that vat dyes cannot be applied in animal fibers such as wool and silk, among others due to poor fixing. Their use is limited to plant fibers.
