A retrospective: China's dyestuffs industry maintained overall growth during the 12th Fifth Year period (from 2011 to 2015)

In tandem with the ongoing recovery of the global economy and the economy of traditional export destinations for China's textile industry such as the US, Europe, Japan and South Korea, as well as constructive progress of the domestic textile industry's shift to the middle and western parts of China and a growing domestic consumption market, the dyestuffs industry, the upstream segment of the textile industry, experienced mild and stable growth as the entire industry became increasingly mature and technology-oriented during the five years spanning 2011 to 2015. During the five-year period, China's dyestuffs industry recorded an aggregate industrial output value of 250.46 billion yuan (approx. US$41.1 billion), with an annual growth rate of 8 per cent. Sales of dyestuffs generated 237.06 billion yuan, with an annual growth rate of 6 per cent, while 5.43 million tons of pigment were produced, backed by an yearly growth rate of 4 per cent. Output of dyestuffs stood at 4.337 million tons, increasing 4.5 per cent annually, while 1.091 million tons of organic pigments were produced, at an annual 1.2 per cent rate of growth. During the period, industrial output value grew 33.34 per cent while sales revenue increased 30.22 per cent compared to the previous five-year period. Output of dyestuffs grew 20.33 per cent while organic pigments increased 12.01 per cent. It is expected that the pigments sector will maintain stable growth this year.
