Follow us on LinkedIn – Pigments are colored or fluorescent particulate organic and inorganic solids, usually insoluble and unaffected both physically and chemically by the vehicle or substrate in which they are used. Organic pigments have higher brightness and tinting strength and are capable of replacing inorganic pigments. Commercial types of pigments include dry powder pigments, flushed colors, presscakes, pigment concentrates, fluid dispersions, surface treated pigments and resin bonds. Dyes are coloring pigments with brilliant shades that impart color to the substrate in solution form.
Surging demand for pigments in key end-use markets such as paints and coatings, plastics, paper, and printing inks, among others, represent the primary driver for the strong evolution of the market over the past few years. The construction industry, which uses pigments in paints and varnishes and in construction materials in the form of roof tiles, paving stones, etc., also represents an important growth indicator for the pigments market. Future growth of the market will be driven by increasing applications of pigments in cosmetics, ceramics, and glass manufacturing for providing modern colors, gloss and special visual effects as well as innovative packaging. Demand for pigments in the printing ink segment is expected to grow significantly supported by increased printed packaging across F&B, pharmaceutical, and consumer health industries as well as the increased use of color printers.
New, high quality, high performance and innovative pigments that offer additional properties such as UV, corrosion resistance, anti-bacterial and self-cleaning are poised to benefit market prospects in the near term. Widespread adoption of natural, organic and eco-friendly dyes that overcome the drawbacks of traditional dyes such as toxicity, environmental hazards and high energy consumption is also expected to bode well for the dyes market. Increasing prominence of luminescent pigments and fluorescent dyes in security applications such as tamper-evident seals for pharmaceutical and other products; and in brand protection applications where they are used to print proprietary invisible security prints on product labels, credit cards, and licenses, are expected to expand market opportunities in the next few years.
As stated by the new market research report on Pigments and Dyes, Asia-Pacific represents the largest and the fastest growing market worldwide with a CAGR of 8.3% over the analysis period.
