The Solvent Red Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2.18 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 3.9% over the forecast period 2023-2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Solvent red dyes are synthetic organic colorants that are soluble in organic solvents. They are used to impart red color to solvent-based inks, paints, coatings, plastics, and other applications. Common uses of solvent red dyes include printing inks for packaging, labels, textiles, automotive paints and coatings, general industrial paints, and plastic coloring. The dye imparts bright red color and has good fastness properties.
A key driver for the solvent red market is the growing demand for solvent-based inks from the packaging industry. Solvent-based flexographic and gravure printing inks are widely used in printing on flexible substrates like carton boards, plastic films, aluminum foils, and paper. They provide vibrant color reproduction and have good adhesion properties. Rising demand for packaged foods and consumer goods is fuelling the demand for solvent-based printing inks, which in turn is supporting growth of the solvent red market. Another driver is the use of solvent red dyes to color plastics. They impart brightness and stability to a wide variety of thermoplastics and thermosetting polymers used in consumer durable goods, automotive parts, and construction materials. Increasing plastic production globally is propelling the solvent red market.
The global solvent red market is dominated by the textile segment. This segment accounts for over 60% of the total market share owing to high demand for solvent red dyes in the textile industry for dyeing textiles like polyester, nylon, acrylic and others. Solvent red dyes provide vibrant color and better fastness properties to textiles. Within the textile segment, apparels sub-segment leads the market due to growing fashion consciousness among consumers globally.
