Aluminum Pigments Market Overview

The Aluminum Pigments Market is projected to reach a value of USD 892 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of over 6%.

Aluminum pigments are produced from aluminum powder using the wet-milling manufacturing process. Usually, mineral spirits and a fatty acid lubricant are added to the ball mills along with the aluminum powder. The slurry concentration of aluminum is only 4%. The fatty acid lubricant is used to prevent the cold welding of the pigment. These pigments withstand curing temperature of around 180¬įC.

The primary driver of the Global Aluminum Pigments Market due to their superior properties such as resistance to chemical attacks, discoloration, weather, and harsh temperatures. The growth of the end-use industries such as the paints & coatings, printing inks, plastics, and cosmetics across the globe drives the demand for aluminum pigments. The paints & coatings account for a major market share of the global aluminum pigments due to the extensive demand for paints & coatings in the automotive, construction, aerospace, and shipbuilding industries for numerous applications such as roof coatings, marine coatings, protective coatings, anti-corrosion coatings, decorative coatings, and industrial coatings. Moreover, aluminum pigments are gaining attention as an ideal choice to print decorative labels and to conceal imperfections of the metal can result in the food & beverage industry.

Players in this market are continuously working towards strategic growth initiatives such as expansion to strengthen their position in the global market and to remain in the forefront to meet the rising demand for the product. For instance, in October 2018, Silberline Manufacturing Co., Inc., a special-effect aluminum pigments manufacturing company announced plans for an expansion of its production capabilities in Pennsylvania, to produce pigments compatible with water-borne environment-friendly coating systems.

However, the stringent regulations on mining activities as well as the availability of substitutes are projected to restrain the market growth during the forecast period.
