Dyestuff Industry – India And China

Dyestuff Industry India and China

Very big market of Dyestuff industry in India and China. Indian government relaxation and motivate to grow dyestuff industry in India.

Pigments for color and organic world demand in 2008 to reach $ 10.6 billion

A study on color and organic pigments, organic dyes (color and organic pigments) to form the annual global demand for 2008 of 4.9 percent in 2003 should increase to 10.6 billion.

Generally, the dye industry three sub-sectors, namely, color pigments, and intermediates are involved. Dye intermediates, petroleum products, dyes and pigments in the downstream ends are further processed. These textiles, plastics, paints, paper and printing ink, leather key sources of these major industries, packaging, etc. area

Colors of the key players

Textile dyes has been used since the Bronze Age. He also developed a prototype of 21st century marketing specialty chemicals. Three major ie DyStar, Ciba Specialty Chemicals and Clariant dye manufacturers are market leaders. The largest, DyStar, 1990 in the decade some of Europe’s leading textile dyeing companies was established in a series of mergers. Greater efficiency and cost burden in the world, manufacturers of Asia powered by an immediate increase in the offbeat chemistry coloring objects. About fundamentally new regulatory barriers that impede the progress of the opening of dyestuffs. Despite DyStar, Ciba Specialty Chemicals and Clariant’s innovative products and new chemical science has increased over the last 10 years and reactive dye dispersant being made to suffer and the dye of high sulfur dyes.

In 2001, the largest private company in the market share of production of dye (23%) DyStar, (14%) Ciba, Clariant (7%), Yorkshire (5%) group, Japan (5% ) and other traditional groups (3%) were. And manufacturers of various dyes are the largest group at 43%.

Development of dye manufacturers and wholesalers to keep away from Asia in a way, he says, comes straight from the specialty chemicals strategy through collaborative work with clients to differentiate product offerings and a high price for specific products support giving a perfect solution. It is an effective, provided that such suppliers from China, India, Pakistan and Brazil and the United States and Europe, manufacturers of textile production and for most of the same quality and product performance throughout the world maintain the goal.

40-30 of the problem of overcapacity in Europe against Asia, especially China, has a percentage of the market. But experts believe that the low cost Asian manufacturers, producing a limited number of basic dyes. Most industry experts believe that growth is innovation and differentiation. However, the market of 180,000 tons per year worldwide spread of colors, special colors are made up of only about 5,000 tons.

DyStar is a leading manufacturer of reactive dyes, which were developed 50 years ago HERE. DyStar recently purchased by Platinum Equity, the company over the original dyes HERE BASF Bayer, Hoechst and made the people as well. polyesters DyStar has developed the deep shade. new chemicals thiophene-based azo dyes, including azo dyes and anthraquinone coloring control emerges. benzodifuranone DyStar too heavy for the red color developed. Azo dyes amended to reflect its performance when implementing a new detergent. The company has also established confidentiality agreements with leading detergent manufacturers to test chemicals and dyes needed new detergent reformulation is not compliant. It fluoroaromatic Levafix CA reactive dyes increased the number of reactive groups. The company is also improving the lightfastness of the dye chromophore or color component is on strengthening the work.

Indanthren Deep Red C + FR, recently, cellulosic fibers DyStar new red shades of red Bordeaux heavy, continuous and appropriate for dyeing son units for dyeing cellulose fibers, as well as for the medium and a dye cellulosic new feature / polyamide blends. The classic cold pad batch dyeing DyStar Textilfarben GmbH has launched the process (CPB). Cold pad batch major developments in technology were introduced in 1957 and still running:

China dye industry

In the first half of 2005, China organic pigment production rose 4 percent and 11 percent of a dye obtained. A report that Chinese demand for dyes and pigments in 12 per cent in 2008 and production of dyes and pigments is expected to increase 13 percent by 2008 will increase each year.

According to statistics, in 2004, China dyeing materials and the production volume of pigments reached 598,300 tons and 143,600 tons, 13.3 and 10.4 per cent over the last year that the increases. Total imports and exports of dyestuffs and pigments for 291 200 tonnes and was estimated at 138,800 tonnes at the same time, the increase of 16.15 percent and 10.64 last year. Therefore, for China a major producer, consumer and materials, pigments and dyeing auxiliary dyeing developed dealer.

China becomes top importer bangladesh

July-September 2005, Bangladesh and China imported 3.73 billion colors (57.5 million) from India Taka 2.53 billion (38.9 million) dollars Taka against chemicals (combined) during the .

DyStar expanded center in China

Recently, a new textile dyes DyStar feature of a million to about $ 55 U.S. to China to expand its production base and market focus has increased on this important step has announced to invest in Nanjing. Located about 300 km northwest of Shanghai, Nanjing, Jiangsu Province, is the capital of a region important for textile production. The DyStar Wuxi, where production capacity has tripled last year, with Qingdao in China will be the third production unit. The new production site in China will increase their growth. Strengthen their international competitiveness, and it will boost market leadership. This investment is a clear sign that your heart DyStar business continues to invest in the textile industry in the long term, will remain a reliable partner.

New production complex in Nanjing, cellulosic fibers and synthetic DyStar will produce colors. Flexibility built in other colors and in accordance with the requirements of the building will allow expansion of infrastructure. This means that the growing demand in China DyStar will be able to react quickly. The first plant is scheduled to inaugurate the first half of 2006.

The Indian industry dye

industry of textile dyes in India to produce the majority of their supplies. Dyes and pigments from India exports large quantities of Europe, Southeast Asia and Taiwan are in the textile industry.

Currently, Indian dye industry entirely self-produced products is dependent on the local level. India currently produces all kinds of synthetic dyes and intermediates and their strong market holds natural dyes. dyes and dye intermediates India came as a global supplier of reactive, acid, vat and direct dyes mainly. Indian coloring, about 6 percent of world production is a part.

Structure of the dye industry in India

The Indian dyestuffs industry has been underway for nearly 40 years of existence, some multinational companies established during the independence of the dye units. As the chemical industry, dye industry is widespread. Industry some manufacturers in the organized sector (about 50 units) and small producers to co-exist in a large informal sector (about 1,000 units) is the job number.

These units located in the west (Maharashtra and Gujarat) accounting for 90 per cent on the sloping ground. In fact, about 80 percent of the total capacity of Gujarat, where about 750 units is in the state.

This dye industry over the last decade has been a major development. Small scale units and export opportunities in the U.S. and Europe (due to the implementation of strict control of pollution) in countries such as the closure of many units generate Grant government (excise and tax benefits) is caused. service concessions, small-scale was a little bigger and have become uncompetitive producers provided. price competition in the market was strong in the lower areas. Duties of the economy and liberalization of mass reduction occurs has little margin for producers. Due to environmental causes closure of many small units in the organized sector players in Gujarat have also helped to move forward.

Organic dyes and being manufactured in India (both organized and unorganized) pigments over six hundred varieties. But per capita consumption of dyestuffs is lower than the world average. soluble dyes and are mainly applied to textile products. Pigments, on the other hand, are insoluble and painting are the main sources of these products.

In recent years, the dye industry that evolves rapidly upshots international forum has been swamped by a series. dyes for the textile industry is the largest market. Polyester and cotton on world markets have positive demand for certain types of dyestuffs has created. In addition, polyamides, acrylics, cellulose and the demand for wool has been virtually stable. A gap in regional growth rates of textile products also affect demand. Asia, the fastest growth in textile production, North America, Latin America and Western Europe has seen since. The global textile industry to Asia shows the changes. Followed by Asia in terms of volume and value of production of dye about 42 percent of world production, with 24 percent of the United States and Europe follows with about 22 percent. On the basis of polyester and cotton because of its widespread use, there is a change in the direction of reactive dyes, fabrics made of cotton have been applied, and the colors used in polyester dispersed. These two colors is the pioneer in all three regional global markets in Asia in particular. In addition, models of regional growth and change in textile applications in the world of industry capacity in the amount of dye.

In India, manufacturers of paint pigment industry with chemicals and dyes industry in terms of stock market key players Atul, Clariant India, Dystar, Ciba Specialty Chemicals and IDI are Sudarshan. Indian companies account for 6 percent of world production.

About 80 percent of stories are dyes. Because the technology is not widely used, the specifications of the products is easier than copying. Recently, however, there has reached global manufacturers to try to end functionality of the product profile has changed. Vat dyes, specialty products, as always have an important function that work with technology. Reactive dyes now companies are focusing on the premium segment. Tilt the package now the only solution is changing the supply of paint products. innovation is more important, the production range, quality and products are environmentally friendly. Equipment manufacturers working with manufacturers to provide integrated solutions rather than products.

Global financial industry has revised the application model dyes and policies has revolutionized the Indian market in stocks. East and small scale sector in the 1980 excise concessions generate many units in Maharashtra and Gujarat. At one point, there are about 1,000 units in the unorganized sector, most of them located in Gujarat and Maharashtra have been with. is biggest b2b portal to trade acid dyes, basic dyes and reactive dyes for India and China business.


Pros And Cons Of A Federal Auto Industry Bailout

Pro 1: Eco Cars
If the bailout money works the way it is supposed to and pulls the big three out of the hole, good things could potentially come of it. One proposal is that after being saved the automakers could be pushed to manufacture and sell cars that are both good for the environment and economy.

Con 1: Taxpayer Cash
Perhaps the most obvious con, it is no secret that we will all be helping bail these companies out. Although it is still unknown where the money may or may not come from, taxpayer cash will be included for sure. Bloggers, business leaders, and experts are expressing their frustration about this all over the Internet.

Pro 2: Recession Woes
While most are already feeling the effects of a recession on their wallets and gas tanks, it could be a lot worse if something else big happens. Some experts feel not bailing out the big three could result in a much deeper and more severe recession then we are already in. With thousands of jobs connected to the auto companies and stocks across the board, their downfall could have a large effect on our economy.

Con 2: Bankruptcy
One of the only other options for GM and the rest of the big three is to file bankruptcy under chapter 11. It is true that we have already assisted these companies financially this year and it helped them for few months. For this reason, some economists feel another bailout would just be like bailing out a sinking ship that is going to sink no matter what we do. Bankruptcy however, could be their only salvation, and many experts claim that it could be their best option. Michael Levine of the Wall Street Journal claims, the cost of terminating dealers is only a fraction of what it would cost to rebuild GM to become a company sized and marketed appropriately for its market share. Contracts would have to be bought out. The company would have to shed many of its fixed obligations. Some obligations will be impossible to cut by voluntary agreement. GM will run out of cash and out of time.

Pro 3: Prior Success
As history tends to repeat itself, I think it important to consider the Chrysler bailout of 1979. In the mid 70’s while our country was going through a gas crisis, Chrysler refused to stop making their biggest most gas guzzling luxury cars. This mistake led them to requesting a bailout in late 79. However, to the surprise of the watching country, Chrysler came out with the “K-car” that sold like hot cakes and pulled the company out of a financial crisis. Chrysler then paid off their debt to the government 7 years early, and the government made over $660 million in profit from the bailout when all was said and done. Many people claim that if given another bailout, the auto companies could pull themselves out from near bankruptcy, and the federal government could generate revenue as well.

Con 3: Private Jet-setting
Unfortunately, when the CEO’s of the big three traveled to Washington D.C. to request billions from taxpayers early this week, all three CEO’s took private jets with round trip travel costs totaling of over $40,000 per CEO. This ostentatious show of wealth was considered highly disrespectful to the taxpayers about to consider bailing them out and created tons of bad publicity for the potential bailout. If companies are going to get taxpayers money, then we need to know that they are being frugal with it.

Organic Industry Watchdog FDA Food Safety Rules Threaten to Crush the Good Food Movement

Organic Industry Watchdog: FDA Food Safety Rules Threaten to Crush the Good Food Movement

New Report Suggests Proposed Rules Could Drive the Nation’s Safest and Best Farmers Out of Business CORNUCOPIA, WI: After years of deliberation in Congress, interagency meetings, lobbyist activity, and a never-ending stream of food poisoning outbreaks, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is finally poised to implement the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).

However, according to a just released white paper by The Cornucopia Institute at, the FDA’s draft rules are so off the mark that they might economically crush the country’s safest farmers while ignoring the root threats to human health: manure contaminated with deadly infectious pathogens generated on “factory” livestock farms and high-risk produce-processing practices.

-In response to deadly outbreaks involving spinach, peanut butter and eggs, Congress acted decisively three years ago to pass the Food Safety Modernization Act,” said Mark A. Kastel, Codirector at The Cornucopia Institute, a farm policy research group based in Wisconsin. “Better oversight is needed but it looks like regulators and corporate agribusiness lobbyists are simultaneously using the FSMA to crush competition from the organic and local farming movement.”

Cornucopia’s report closely examines the FDA’s draft regulations ( for implementing the new food safety law, and a new FDA guidance ( designed to control Salmonella in eggs produced by outdoor flocks. The report concludes that the new proposals would ensnare some of the country’s safest family farmers in costly and burdensome regulations in a misdirected attempt to rein in abuses that are mostly emanating from industrial-scale farms and giant agribusiness food-processing facilities.

Family farm advocates, and groups representing consumers interested in high-quality food, thought they had won a victory when the Tester/Hagan amendment was adopted by Congress exempting farmers doing less than $500,000 in business from the new rules. But Cornucopia’s report suggests the FDA seems more interested in a “one-size-fits-all” approach to food safety regulation.

In reality, the report suggests that small farms are not really exempt. The FDA is proposing that the agency can, without any due process, almost immediately force small farms to comply with the same expensive testing and record-keeping requirements as factory farms.

“In practical terms,” explains Judith McGeary, a member of The Cornucopia Institute’s policy advisory panel and Executive Director of the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance, “the FDA will be able to target small farms one-by-one and put them out of business, with little to no recourse for the farmers.”

The FDA’s economic analysis also shows that farms over $500,000 (still small in the produce industry) will be significantly impacted with some being driven out of business.

“The added expense and record-keeping time will potentially force many small and medium-sized local farms – owner-operated, selling at farmers markets directly to consumers or to local grocers and natural food co-ops – out of business,” Kastel added.

The Institute’s analysis points out that the FDA has wildly inflated the number of foodborne illnesses that originate from farm production (seed to harvest rather than contamination that occurs later in processing and distribution).

It also alleges that the FDA has failed to recognize that specific processed crops such as fresh-cut, or produce grown in certain regions are the genesis of 90% of dangerous outbreaks in fruits and vegetables. In addition to imports from countries like Mexico, where the most recent Taylor Farms Cyclospora outbreak ( originated, the evidence indicates that fresh-cut bagged/boxed salad mix and greens, other pre-cut vegetables and sprouts are much more prone to contamination.

“The proposed rule is a mess,” said Daniel Cohen, owner of Maccabee Seed Company, a longtime industry observer. “The FDA has much greater expertise on food safety issues from harvest to the consumer, but focused instead on farming issues from planting to harvest. Limited, modest, and more focused steps to improve on-farm food-safety could have produced simple, affordable, effective, and enforceable regulation.”

According to Cornucopia, the most important lost opportunity in the collaborative process between Congress, the FDA and the USDA is the lack of attention directed at the giant concentrated animal feeding operations, or CAFOs (factory farms) raising livestock. The massive amount of manure stored at these factory farms is commonly tainted by highly infectious bacteria that have been polluting America’s air, water and farmlands.

“Federal regulators propose nothing to address sick livestock in animal factories and their pathogen-laden manure that is contaminating surrounding rural communities, nearby produce farms and our food supply,” Kastel lamented.

No More Organic Eggs?

The 2010 salmonella outbreak in eggs, centered in Iowa, shone a spotlight on industrial-scale egg houses confining thousands of hens in filthy and dangerous conditions.

The salmonella outbreak led to comprehensive regulation and new guidance for organic farmers. Organic farmers are required by federal law to provide outdoor access to their hens and the new FDA guidance, according to Cornucopia, materially undermines this management practice. And they are doing this despite scientific evidence tying higher rates of pathogenic contamination to older, massive factory farms with cages and forced molting (practices banned in organics) rather than raising birds outside.

“Their new guidance, on one hand, will make it difficult, expensive and maybe even impossible to have medium-sized flocks of birds outside,” Kastel stated. “At the same time, the FDA has colluded with the USDA’s National Organic Program to say that tiny ‘porches’, which hold only a minute fraction of the flock, will now legally constitute ‘outdoor access.’ This is a giveaway to conventional egg companies that are confining as many as 100,000 birds in a building and calling these ‘organic.'”

The Cornucopia Institute has publicly stated that they are investigating legal action against regulators if enforcement action is not taken, under the Organic Foods Production Act (, against the large industrial operations confining laying hens and broilers indoors.

The issue of food safety in Washington has been a contentious one, causing rifts even between nonprofits representing the interest of consumers and family farm organizations that have been historically aligned in support of organic and local food. Some consumer advocates pressed for no exemptions, even as farm policy experts have supplied evidence indicating smaller, family-operated farms are inherently safer.

“Only an idiot would not be concerned with food safety,” said Tom Willey, a Madera, California, organic vegetable producer and longtime organic advocate.

Added Willey: “The antibiotic resistant and increasingly virulent organisms contaminating produce, from time to time, are mutant creatures introduced into the larger environment from confined industrial animal operations across the American countryside. The FDA’s misguided approach could derail achievements in biological agriculture and a greater promise of food made safe through respect for and cooperation with the microbial community which owns and operates this planet upon which we are merely guests.”


The Cornucopia Institute is a nonprofit organization engaged in research and educational activities supporting the ecological principles and economic wisdom underlying sustainable and organic agriculture. Through research and investigations on agricultural and food issues, The Cornucopia Institute provides needed information to family farmers, consumers, stakeholders involved in the good food movement, and the media.
