DyStar Singapore Pte Ltd. is a supplier of products and services for the textile, leather, paper, plastic, and other chemical industries. Cadira® is a new module in DyStar’s Resource Efficiency program. Their concepts considerably reduce water, waste and energy consumption. Cadira® will help brands & retailers and their production partners to save valuable resources and to reduce the carbon footprint of their textile goods.

Eric Hopmann, CEO of DyStar Group, shared his perspectives on the vision of DyStar and discussed on the environment of the global textile market. He said, “I have been working for 30 years in this industry and China has had a tremendous influence on this industry from which we have however learned many lessons.”

“According to the analysis of WTO in 2016-2017, the textile industry export market is about 800 billion and the Chinese industries take about 45% of this market, which is around 350 billion in exports of garments and textiles. However, in the last 3 years the global exports of Garment and Textiles have started to fall by about 100 billion USD and those of China by 50 Bio USD.” he said.

He mentioned two reasons behind this. “First of all, the costs of China’s Textile production are rising day by day, especially manpower but also the energy costs which are important in this sector. Another most important issue thing is the environmental situation in China as the government has embarked in cleaning up the country, forcing various textile and chemical factories to shut down.”

Nowadays the textile industry is moving progressively out of China to overseas for these reasons. Many provinces in China are extremely polluted and this is why the Chinese government is pushing down the industry, which is one of the most polluting sectors in the country. 1000 chemical industries will be shut down in coming three years in the Jiangsu province as recently announced by the central government. However, big Textile Groups are handling their production processes better and have invested in waste treatment facilities which are effective for the industry and will help them to stay.

Strength of garment making, dying, finishing is so much developed in Bangladesh and the cost of manpower is so effective to grow the business here. That’s why we are saying Bangladesh is the key market for DyStar.

“Small and medium companies were shut down for not enhancing their processes. But Bangladesh is developing very nicely and it has reached in 2017 more than 30 billion dollars export sales. This is only the beginning of fruitful years for the Textile Industry in Bangladesh,” stated Eric Hopmann.

Bangladesh has a big advantage now as compared to China. But the local producers should not repeat here what has happened there!

Eric Hopmann said, “Strengths of garment making, dying, finishing is so much developed in Bangladesh and the cost of manpower is so effective that business will continue to grow here. That’s why we are saying Bangladesh is the key market for DyStar and we are here to give our best services to every factory for developing a concept of pollution-free industrialization, which can be cost effective too.”

Jayant Khera, Vice President of South Asia said, “Firstly I am very glad to announce that we are starting a branch of Texanlab in Dhaka. We are testing here different type of dying and printing quality. Also, we are working on the development of a different type of printing auxiliaries of DyStar Company. We are also ready to provide complete digital printing solutions to our customers.”

The DyStar econfidence® program is planned to provide a guarantee to our textile customers such that the dyes and chemicals we supply comply with legal requirements and to consult so that the selected products are compliant with voluntary and brand & retailer RSL (Restricted Substance List) requirements. It allows DyStar to build partnerships along the textile supply chain to foster a more sustainable textile production.

The econfidence® program allows DyStar to build partnerships with the textile supply chain to foster more sustainable textile production and to meet the retailers’ RSL.

Here we also ensure that the economic issue of the industry and resolve the ecological value, which is very much needed to make the environment clean.
