Growth in demand for sodium sulfate as a dyeing agent in the textile industry is one of the major trends being witnessed in the global sodium sulfate market 2019-2023. Sodium sulfate is used as a dyeing agent in the textile industry. It acts as a leveling agent, which reduces the negative charge on the fibers, allowing the dyes to penetrate evenly. During the dyeing process, salt is used to drive the dye into the textile owing to its high affinity for water. The use of salt leads to maximum exhaustion of dye molecules during the process of dyeing.
