Market Synopsis

Market Research Future (MRFR) states that the global market for pigment dispersion is slated to exhibit a high revenue based CAGR during the forecast period (2017-2023). Pigment dispersion method is used to impart color to various substrates in the building and construction, automotive, and packaging industries.

Drivers and Restraints

The impressive market performance is the result of a combination of factors such as presence of various manufacturers and well-established industries across the globe. A number of market players strive to strengthen their presence in the global market by tapping into the existing growth potential. For instance, in 2018, Clariant entered into a partnership with Lintech International to distribute its pigments for the plastics, coating and printing ink industries across the United States (US).

Furthermore, expansion of the paints and coatings industry is deemed to present remarkable growth opportunities for pigment manufacturers. The market also expands on the back of increased use of colored packaging materials for food packaging and consumer preference for thermal barrier coatings in residential construction.

On the downside, several government bodies implement stringent regulations that restrict the use of toxic organic chemicals for production of pigment dispersion, which partially impedes the market growth. However, the overall market will remain unaffected on account of onslaught of organic pigments that are alternatives to some of the toxic inorganic ones. With manufacturers investing in research and development activities to replace metals in the formulation to produce environmental-friendly pigments, the market is on its way to grow exponentially over the coming years.
