What are the Major Challenges Faced by Vinyl Sulfone Suppliers?

Regulationsare one of the biggest hurdle for vinyl sulfone suppliers. Over the past half-decade, developed regions across the globe has pledged to slowly curb the usage of non-environmental friendly products in dye production. Vinyl sulfone is one of the chemicals on the black list of regional governments.

Apart from the imposition of the regulations across the regions, change in consumer behaviour regarding utilization of natural dye for dyeing the textiles has ceased the opportunistic growth across the developed economies.

Moreover, release of bundle of toxic gas in the process of production is anticipated to spike the production costs with respect to the growing effluent control regulations across the region.

Aforementioned factors have hampered the growth of the market by a higher degree and has swallowed the opportunistic pockets across the regions. Despite loss of opportunities owing to these challenges, there have aroused multiple sweet spots across the region which has been explained in detail in the recently published report of vinyl sulfone

How Has COVID-19 Impacted Sales of Vinyl Sulfone?
