For instance, in 2019, the global textile industry was estimated approximately ~USD 920 billion, which is further projected to reach around ~USD 1,230 billion by 2024.

The chemical formula of trichloroisocyanuric acid is C3Cl3N3O3, which is a type of organic chemical compound. Trichloroisocyanuric acid appears to be white crystalline solids with a heavy pungent odor and is highly inflammable that can cause a fire. This chemical compound can be synthesized from cyanuric acid when reacted with sodium hydroxide and chlorine gas. When close to moisture, water, acids, reducing and oxidizing agents, trichloroisocyanuric acid may be incompatible. Further, the prevalence of high number of textile manufacturers is anticipated to boost the demand of trichloroisocyanuric acid in the industry for the increased preference for organic chemical in the upcoming years. In 2021, the number of textile and cloth manufacturing companies in the European Union was estimated to be around ~USD 143,000.

Despite Inflation & Fearing Recession, Businesses Across the Globe Expected to Do Better in 2023:

In 2023, market players might incur losses due to huge gap in currency translation followed by contracting revenues, shrinking profit margins & cost pressure on logistics and supply chain.
Controlling Inflation has become the first priority for global economies from last quarter of 2022 and to be followed in 2023. With skewed economic situations, rise in interest rate by governments to control spending and inflation, spiked oil and gas prices, high inflation, geo-political issues including U.S. & China trade war, Russia-Ukraine conflict to intensify the global economic issues.
The interest rates in the U.S. may be less sensitive in 2023 as compared to 2022; sigh of relief for businesses. Positive business sentiments, healthy business balance sheets, growth in construction spending (private construction value in 2022 stood at $1,429.2 billion, 11.7 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $1,279.5 billion spent in 2021, Residential construction in 2022 was $899.1 billion, up by 13.3 percent (±2.1 percent) from $793.7 billion in 2021, non-residential construction touched $530.1 billion, 9.1 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $485.8 billion in 2021.) showcases minimal impact of recession in the country.
Similarly, spiked spending in the European and major Asia economics including, India, China & Japan to showcase less impact on the global demand.
