Acid Orange Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Demand in Paper Industry - Acid Orange Dye has many applications, including paper coating, and molding powders, and also works well for coloring pulp and paper.
  • Growing Demand for Cosmetics- A synthetic pigment known as acid orange 7 is occasionally referred to as a monoazo color in general, which is utilized as a dye in semi-permanent hair coloring solutions, and as a direct hair coloring agent in both non-oxidative and oxidative hair dye formulations.


  • Side effects of acid orange - A carcinogen and chronic irritant, Acid Orange 7 is one of the acidic azo dyes that harms skin and eyes since it is known that certain azo dyes can decompose generating hazardous aromatic amines. Moreover, owing to their poisonous or carcinogenic properties, acid dyes, which are commonly employed in the textile industry, may have negative consequences on both human health and the environment, which is expected to hamper the acid orange market growth in the coming years.
  • Stringent environmental regulations associated with the manufacturing of dyes- Most industrialized nations have strict laws governing the handling of all known carcinogens, which has led almost all dye companies to stop producing these compounds since the metabolites of benzidine and 2-naphthylamine, rather than the colors themselves, caused bladder cancer in the workers who handled dyes based on these compounds.
  • Fluctuating prices of raw materials may impact the production

Acid Orange Segmentation

Solubility (Soluble in Water, Insoluble in Ethanol)

The soluble in water segment is predicted to account for 66% share of the global acid orange market during the forecast period. owing to the growing demand for acid orange 7. Red-yellow in water, Acid Orange 7 (Acid Orange II) dissolves in orange and is a type of acid dye that is soluble in water, enabling a strong connection to form with the fibers. Owing to its brilliant color, Acid Orange 7 is frequently used to dye leather, paper, and textiles, and it is also known to possess good light and wash fastness qualities, making it appropriate for a variety of uses such as an indicator in analytical chemistry.

Application (Consumer Goods, Food & Beverages, Pharmaceuticals, Chemicals, Textiles)

The textiles segment in acid orange market is set to garner a notable share shortly. Anionic and water-soluble, acid orange dyes belong to a class of artificial acid dyes that yield orange to reddish-orange hues, which are frequently used to color fibers including nylon, silk, and wool. Acid orange is a synthetic dye with a vivid orange hue and the capacity to form a strong bond with many fabrics making it suitable for several applications. Acid Orange, often referred to as 2-naphthol orange, is created through the azo coupling of sulfanilic acid's diazonium derivative and β-naphthol which is applied for dying wool, and can also be used for both biological and leather dyeing.

Color Index Number (Acid Orange 3, Acid Orange 7, Acid Orange 10, Acid Orange 24, Acid Orange 67, Acid Orange 74, Acid Orange 80, Acid Orange 86)
