DUBLIN, October 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
The "Global Optical Brighteners Market 2017-2021" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.
The global optical brighteners market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 8.95% during the period 2017-2021.
The report, Global Optical Brighteners Market 2017-2021, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is the growing demand for bio-based surfactants. Synthetic surfactants are used in detergents and personal care products, owing to their low cost of production in comparison to bio-surfactants. However, synthetic surfactants are toxic and degrade over a long period. Optical brighteners used to manufacture these synthetic surfactants are harmful to marine life and human health. Due to sustainability issues, major companies are shifting to bio-surfactants, which are produced using renewable feedstock.
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is the growing textile industries to provide essential growth opportunities. The natural color of the textiles is usually present as an impurity in the fiber. They are decolorized by different bleaching methods to achieve the desired color of the fabric. However, even after bleaching, the fabric retains some of the colors. Thus, chemical treatments become essential to nullify the yellow tint of the textile fibers. The yellowing of the fabric is treated by using a blue dyeing agent, which removes the yellow part of the light spectrum and reflects blue through osmosis.
