Sulphur dyes are high molecular weight dyes synthesized by the thionation of organic compounds containing nitro or amino group. Sulfur dyes are highly complex compound with no exact molecular structure. It may contain aminobiphenyls, nitrobenzenes, amino derivatives, indophenols, azines, and substituted naphthalenes as a part of sulfur dyes. The sulfur dyes exhibit excellent absorption capacity, superior wash-fastness, easy applicability, and fast processing, along with the low cost. They are generally insoluble in water but can be made soluble by reacting with sodium sulfide in alkaline conditions. Sulfur dyes are available in different color, namely, black, blue, brown, green, and others. Common salt is added to accelerate the absorption of sulfur dyes in fabrics. Reducing agents such as sodium sulfide and sodium hydrogen sulfide are used in reducing sulfur dyes.
Healthy growth of the textile industry mingled with ease of application of sulfur dyes in this industry drives the global sulfur dyes market growth. Various other factors such as cost-effectiveness, easy availability, simple to rinse due to low-water solubility are favoring the market growth. These dyes can be used in cotton, synthetics, and nylon. Increasing investment in R&D to reduce the toxicity of sulfur and thereby increasing profitability is expected to provide lucrative opportunities to the market players. At present the on-going innovations on developing bio-based substitutes for sulfur dyes in North America and Europe poses a major challenge to the sulfur dyes market players owing to its eco-friendly nature and increasing consumer acceptance.
Sulfur dyes are hazardous in nature and pollute the environment and water bodies which restrains the market growth. Furthermore, stringent government and environment regulations on the usage of sulfur dyes is expected to hamper the global market.
