Hematoxylin Market By Type (Alum Hematoxylin, Iron Hematoxylin, Tungsten Hematoxylin), By Application (Laboratories, Textile) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Analysis 2015 – 2025

Hematoxylin is a natural black 1, or C.I. 75290-colored compound extracted from the wood of the logwood tree. When oxidized, it forms hematein, a compound with a rich blue-purple color, and is used with a suitable mordant such as Fe (III) or Al (III) salts to stain cell nuclei prior to testing them under a microscope. Structures that stain with hematoxylin are called basophilic.

The global hematoxylin market is segmented on the basis of types, such as alum hematoxylin, iron hematoxylin, tungsten hematoxylin, lead hematoxylin, and others. The alum hematoxylin segment was observed to be the largest by type in the global hematoxylin market in 2016 and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period of 2017-2025. Rising demand for hematoxylin and eosin (H and E) staining is expected to fuel the growth of the segment over the forecast period. Iron hematoxylin is anticipated to be the fastest-growing segment in the global hematoxylin market and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 7.4% over the forecast period (2017-2025).

On the basis of application type, the global hematoxylin market is segmented into laboratories and textiles. In 2016, laboratories were observed to be the largest application segment in the global hematoxylin market and were projected to maintain their dominance during the forecast period of 2017–2025. Rising demand for dye in laboratories for histology, histochemistry, histopathology, and cytology is anticipated to fuel the growth of this segment over the forecast period. The textile segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment, with a CAGR of 7.9% over the next six years.

The global hematoxylin market is segmented by geography into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa. In 2016, North America was observed to be the largest market, with a 42.20 percent revenue share in the global market. The region is projected to grow at a significant CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period. However, the North American market has become mature, and its growth is anticipated to decline by 90 basis points (Bps) by 2025. Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest-growing regional market and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 8.2% over the forecast period (2017-2025).

Europe is the second-largest market and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.0% during the forecast period. The European hematoxylin market is expected to reach $778.35 million by 2025. Due to an economic slowdown in the region caused by low crude oil prices, the Middle East and Africa was the smallest market for hematoxylin in 2016, accounting for approximately 3.78% of the global market's revenue share. The region is anticipated to lose 36 basis points by 2025.

The global hematoxylin market can be categorized on the basis of type as follows:

  • Alum Hematoxylin
  • Iron hematoxylin
  • Tungsten hematoxylin
  • Others (molybdenum, lead, and others)

In 2016, the alum hematoxylin type of hematoxylin was the largest segment in terms of revenue. The segment accounted for US$ 537.45 million of hematoxylin demand in 2016 and is expected to exceed US$ 900.0 million by 2025. To demonstrate nuclear morphology, alum and hematoxylin are commonly used; such solutions typically contain hematoxylin and an alum.

Three ingredients are required to make an effective nuclear staining alum hematoxylin: hematein, or hematoxylin; dye; an aluminum salt; a mordant; and a solvent. The iron hematoxylin stain allows for the creation of a permanently stained slide for quantitating and detecting parasitic organisms. Iron hematoxylin is the stain mainly used for the original morphological descriptions of intestinal protozoa, which are found in humans. Iron hematoxylin staining methods can be used on fresh, PVA-preserved, or SAF-preserved specimens.

Ehrlich's hematoxylin, Harris hematoxylin, Mayer's haemalum, and Cole's hematoxylin are basic types of alum hematoxylin solutions, whereas Heidenhain's iron hematoxylin, Weigert's iron hematoxylin, Verhoeff's iron hematoxylin, and Celestine blue-haemalum are types of iron hematoxylin solutions.

The global hematoxylin market can be categorized on the basis of application as follows:

  • Laboratories (histology, histochemistry, histopathology, and cytology)
  • Textile

The natural dye, hematoxylin, is obtained from the logwood; haematoxylon campechianum is used in histology, histopathology, histochemistry, and cytology. Hematoxylin is the most commonly used dye in histopathology and cytology for the diagnosis of non-malignant and malignant lesions. Hematoxylin is extensively used in the demonstration of certain carbohydrates, parasites, lipids, nucleic acids, connective tissue fibers, and metals and in immunohistochemistry.

It is also used in the demonstration of several intracellular substances such as chromosomes, mitochondria, centrioles, chromatin, nucleoli, the nuclear membrane, cross-striations of muscle fibers, ground cytoplasm, and chromatin granules in several staining techniques. To a lesser extent, hematoxylin is used in the textile industry due to its strong staining properties to efficiently dye nylon, silk, and wool. In 2016, this segment accounted for 1.36% of global hematoxylin demand.

In 2016, the laboratories' application use of hematoxylin was the largest segment in terms of revenue. In 2016, the segment accounted for 98.64% of the market share, with a revenue demand for hematoxylin of US$ 1,511.87 million.
