Paper Pigments Market Research, 2031

The global paper pigments market size was valued at $12.6 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $27.9 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 8.4% from 2022 to 2031.

Paper pigments provide a coating layer on paper that offers the paper surface uniformity, whitens it, increases opacity, provides the required finish, imparts printing qualities, and enhances the shade of the coating. Paper pigments are also employed as fillers in uncoated paper, which is necessary in printing materials to boost opacity and brightness while also improving printing qualities. In papermaking, pigments such as clay, titanium dioxide, and calcium carbonate are employed as fillers and coatings. The pigment is applied in the presence of a binder, which aids in the adhesion of the pigment particles to the paper fibers.

Paper Pigments Market

Wide application of paper pigment along with increasing demand for paper in the packaging industry is anticipated to drive the global paper pigments market during the forecast period. However, rising digitalization is anticipated to hamper the growth of the paper pigments market. On the contrary, growing need for superior quality coated paper is expected to generate lucrative opportunities for the global paper pigments market.

The paper pigments market is segmented into type, application, and region. On the basis of type, the market is categorized into calcium carbonate, kaolin, titanium dioxide, amorphous silicas, talc and others. On the basis of application, the market is categorized into coated paper and uncoated paper. Region-wise, the market is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. The paper pigments market share is analyzed across all significant regions and countries.

The major players operating in the global paper pigments market include, Aditya Birla Chemicals, Cabot Corporation, DuPont de Numerous Inc., En-Tech Polymer Co.,Ltd., GAB Neumann Gmbh, Hansol Chemicals, J.M.Huber Corporation, Kokuyo Camlin Ltd., Kemira Oyj, KaMin LLC. / CADAM, Minerals Technologies Inc., Omya AG, Sudarshan Chemical Industries Ltd., Thiele Kaolin Company, and The Chemours Company.

Paper Pigments Market by Region

Asia-Pacific is projected to register a robust growth during the forecast period. Paper pigments are widely utilized in face tissue paper, envelope, cover papers, and specialty papers in Asia-Pacific. Coated paper is demanded as enamel paper, gloss paper, and slick paper in Asia-Pacific, which is paper that has been coated with a polymer or a combination of materials to impart certain properties to paper, such as weight, surface gloss, smoothness, or reduced ink absorption. As it absorbs less ink, coated paper produces clearer and brighter pictures or drawings.

Coated paper is more resistant to dirt, moisture, and wear and tear than uncoated paper, which helps to keep the printed item looking crisp and professional for a longer amount of time. Due to rising industrialization, enterprises, and educational institutions in this area, as well as increased demand for superior-quality coated paper goods and expansion in the packaging industry, Asia-Pacific dominates the paper pigments market. Further, coated paper consumption is expected to increase the demand for paper pigments in Asia-Pacific.

Paper Pigments Market by Type

Calcium Carbonate segment dominated the global paper pigments market in terms of revenue, in 2021. Calcium carbonate is used in neutral or alkaline papermaking, which produces a more durable sheet than acid papermaking. It is used in the paper base-sheet as a filler and in the coating as a paper pigments. Calcium carbonate improves ink setting in paper pigments by swiftly drawing oils or solvents out of the ink. Precipitated calcium carbonate (CaCO3) is widely utilized in the pulp and paper industry as a paper filler and in coatings to offer opacity, high brightness, and increased printability due to its high ink receptivity. Calcium carbonate is also used as a filler or coating pigment in the manufacturing of paper from pulp that has a large quantity of mechanical pulp.

Paper Pigments Market by Application

Uncoated Paper segment dominated the global paper pigments market in 2021. Paper pigments are utilized as fillers in the uncoated paper. Fillers are crucial in printing papers to increase opacity and brightness, as well as improve printing properties. Uncoated paper is ideal for real estate brochures, restaurant menus, forms and spreadsheets, company stationery (including calling cards, invoices, letterhead, and envelopes, among other things), and booklets that require a classic or elegant touch. Uncoated papers require more wood fiber per pound than coated papers, which accounts for their higher price. The absorbency of uncoated paper makes it ideal for writing with a pencil or pen. The uncoated surface and higher resolution make huge volumes of printed text simpler to read.

COVID-19 Analysis:

The COVID-19 pandemic had moderate impact on the paper pigments market. It also has an influence on the supply of ink, dyes, as well as the import and export of paper. The pandemic has had a devastating impact on the paper pigments industry globally, resulting in unquantifiable commercial losses.

However, during the pandemic, paper pigments were highly demanded for temporary food containment and protection due to high permeability and inability to be sealed with heat. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, health awareness among the populace grew. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a favorable influence on paper food packaging and is likely to boost the demand for coated and uncoated paper, thereby propelling the paper pigments market growth during the COVID-19 crisis.
