Rising Demand from Textile Industry to Brace Market Growth

Thiourea dioxide, also known as TUD or TDO, is a white crystalline powdered stable compound that gets dissolved in water and ethanol but is insoluble in non-polar compounds. Thiourea dioxide is also recognized as tetra sulfurothiuram disulfide, thioamide sulfur oxide, thionitroso-dioxide, and dithiodioxopentane. It is solid, colorless, and is used in chemicals, pesticides, and pharmaceuticals. It is a substance with the chemical formula as (NH)CS(=O). It is considered an originator of other organic combinations beneficial for fabricating rubber products, fibers, photographic films, and dyes. It has applications mainly in the pharmaceuticals sector owing to its antithrombotic properties, which help decline blood clotting or thrombus development. The application includes the decolorizing natural color of pigmented fibers, such as camel hair, human hair, and contaminated dark fibers in white wool.

A standard grade is a form of Thiourea Dioxide that covers layers like Sulphate and Chloride and, ammonium compounds. As these chemicals are by-products that makes them even more inexpensive than High Purity Grade. It is not considered appropriate for maximum uses being less pure than other grades, such as Ultra-Pure Grade.

Asia Pacific is estimated to dominate the market share of thiourea dioxide due to the huge number of pulp & paper and textile companies. Its consumption in developing economies such as China and India, Taiwan, and South Korea resulted in the greatest consumption of the product.

The major decrease potential of Thiourea dioxide in the case of coloring container dyes is due to the limiting factor that restricts its market. In coloring container dyes, it is essential for stopping the extreme decline of indanthrone-based dyes, an anti-reducing negotiator such as perborate or hydrogen peroxide that makes this chemical costlier and capital intensive. The market is divided into two types such as type and application analysis. Type analysis is further divided into ordinary and ultra-pure grade, whereas the application analysis is segregated into the photographic industry, paper & pulp, fiber industry, and textile industry.

According to Business Research Insights, the global thiourea dioxide market size was USD 922.45 billion in 2022. The market is estimated to touch USD 1138.67 billion by 2028, exhibiting a healthy CAGR of 3.6% from 2023-2030.

What lies ahead of Thiourea Dioxide Industry?

The growing demand for the textile industry for the thiourea dioxide market being dominant over sodium dithionite, a less amount of quantity environmentally friendly and essential for wool and fabric coloring uses. The growing demand for end-use sectors such as textiles, pulp and paper, and leather is due to its extraordinary bleaching properties. It is used as a chemical-reducing agent that reduces the disulfide bonds in cellulose fibers. The use of thiourea dioxide can lead to increas in retention of pigments, dyes, or other additives, which help to increase the glow of paper. The demand for thiourea dioxide in water treatment is used to eliminate arsenic and other considerable metals from water provisions.

The market is anticipated to drive on the basis of increasing demand from the textile industry and adoption from various applications during the forecast period.
