Iron Oxide Pigments Market Overview


The Iron Oxide Pigments Market Size was valued at USD 2.5 Billion in 2022. The Iron Oxide Pigments industry is projected to grow from USD 2.67 Billion in 2023 to USD 4.9 Billion by 2030, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.1% during the forecast period (2023 - 2030). Iron oxide pigments are found naturally in different colors, including black, brown, yellow, and red. Natural iron oxides are made up of a mixture of ferrous and ferric oxides, as well as impurities including manganese, clay, and organics. Commercial Iron oxide pigments, on the other hand, are made via chemical synthesis or precipitation. Because of their great qualities, such as high brightness, good dispersion, low cost, and non-toxicity, these are widely used in paints, coatings, plastics, ceramics, paper, cosmetics, food packaging, and textiles. The rising demand for iron oxide pigment in various applications will propel market growth.
