Dye is a colored substance that has an affinity to the substrate to which it is being applied. Dyes are applied in an aqueous solution, and may require a mordant to improve their fastness on the fiber. Pigments are substances that impart black, white or a color to other materials, especially in a powdered substance that is mixed with a liquid in which it is relatively insoluble, and are used especially to impart color to coating materials (as paints) or to inks, plastics and rubber. Chlorophyll, Carotenoid, Phycobilin and Melanin are some pigments.
Asia was the largest region in the synthetic dye and pigment market in 2016, accounting for nearly 72% market share. Asia is the largest market because of growth in production technology, manufacturing industry, cheap labor and operational costs.
Many textile companies are starting to opt for eco-friendly dyes for producing textiles and fabrics. They are not using harmful dyes while processing and dyeing the fibers into fabrics. Eco-friendly dyes therefore represent a promising market due to their eco-friendly characteristics, apart from their high performance. Due to the positive environmental characteristics and low toxicity of eco-friendly dyes, many companies are moving toward eco-friendly organic dyes, though they are highly priced in comparison to inorganic dyes
