Silicone Textile Chemicals Market Overview 2019: Demand by Regions, Growth, Trends and Forecasts to 2026

Global Silicone Textile Chemicals Market: There is a growing demand for the manufacturing of the clothing which gives protection from temperature change, radiation, wind chill and UV light. The high performance apparels are designed to give protection and covering from several energy effects. The intelligent fabric is composed of the 3D spacer textile and a further process with silicon coatings is an active protection system (APS). The technological advancement helped in creating textile with improved protection and comfort to humans even in a hostile environment.For instance,

The textiles are not only limited to apparel clothing but advanced textiles help in improving quality of life.The protective textile is used in sports, defense, radiation protection and fire protection. The textile is engineered by using silicon composites having polymers and forming transient bonds with a cross linking component.

Major Players profiled in this report:

Toxicity of Siloxanes is a major issue for manufacturers

The manufacturing of the textiles chemical product comprises harmful waste leading the environmental pollution and are considered as worst offenders in pollution. The labors are in continuous contact with chemicals which enter into the body through the skin absorption or during the respiratory process and causes allergic reactions. The chemicals used are carcinogenic in nature and causes cancer, mutagenic and nephrotoxic effects.

Siloxanes are an important ingredient for silicone textile chemical but managing its toxicity is very difficult for manufacturers. It is unstable and very persistent, once released in the environment, it remains for many years. They are used to form softeners and surfactant to give desirable characteristics to the fabric. Cationic surfactants are not present in usual cleaning products but added inactive agents in fabric softeners. It exhibits a poor biodegradability connected with a relatively high eco-toxicity in standard tests.
