Growing demand from textiles: a major market driver
In the textiles industry, potassium permanganate is extensively used as a bleaching agent. It is used in the bleaching process of polyester fabrics, cotton fabrics, and jeans. It is used to provide denim effects in the fabric. Also, due to its powerful oxidation property, it is preferred in the textiles industry. When compared to conventional bleaching agents, potassium permanganate is considered economical. Also, potassium permanganate does not affect the dye uptake values adversely like other conventional bleaching agents. Due to the increase in the demand for fabrics, changing fashion trends, affordability of buying clothes due to the rise in the disposable income, and the rise in the standard of living the global textiles market is anticipated to grow significantly. Growing demand from the emerging countries such as China and India are also driving the growth in the global textile market.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on metals and minerals, “In countries such as China and India, growth is attributed to the availability of cheap labor and the low-cost of establishing manufacturing setups. These are the factors that are generating the demand for different grades of polyester and cotton fabrics, which in-turn, is augmenting the consumption of potassium permanganate in the textiles segment.”
