Pigments Market Overview:

The global pigments market size was valued at $20,023 million in 2015, and is expected to garner $26,598 million by 2022, registering a CAGR of 4.1% during the forecast period 2022. Pigments are solid materials that improve the appearance or impart color to the substrate on which they are used; they are black, white, and colored. Pigments are insoluble materials incorporated by physically mixing them with the medium. They have a high tinting strength as compared to the material in which they are added. Pigments serve three main functions: impart color to the medium, hide the substrate, efface the existing color, and enhance the strength of the paint film. The global pigments market is broadly classified as organic, inorganic, and specialty pigments. 

Organic pigments contain carbon atoms, are non-toxic in nature, or have low level of toxicity, thus are environmentally safe. These pigments are obtained from coal tar, petroleum distillates, succinic acid, aniline, and phthalonitrile. Organic pigments offer high color strength with durability and are available in wider range of bright colors, such as blue, green, yellow, red, and orange. They are usually less opaque and are chemically inert. There are various types of organic pigments, such as azo, phthalocyanine, quinacridone, and others.

Primary Interview Responses Split

Inorganic pigments are coloring materials obtained from metal oxides by the process of high-temperature calcinations. They possess high light fastness, high hiding power, non-migratory, non-wrapping, and non-bleeding properties. Inorganic pigments are capable of withstanding extreme weather conditions and high temperatures as compared to organic pigments; therefore, they are used widely in paints & coatings, plastics, construction materials, printing ink, and others. Types of inorganic pigments include titanium dioxide pigment, iron oxide pigment, cadmium pigment, carbon black pigment, chromium oxide pigment, complex inorganic pigments, and others

Specialty pigments produce a range of vibrant colors with brilliant luster and have superior hiding power and light fastness, which makes them ideal for high-performance paints & coatings, plastics, and cosmetics. These pigments are usually used to enhance the appearance, value, and performance of the product. These include classic organic pigments, metallic pigments, high-performance pigments, light interference pigments, fluorescent pigments, and luminescent pigments, and thermo-chromic pigments.

Segment Review:

The chemical names of pigments are nomenclated using the Color Index (C.I.) classification system. It is a dual classification system consisting of color index generic name (CIGN) and color index constitution number (CICN). C.I. generic name is used to describe a commercial product by its usage class, hue, and serial number. The C.I. constituent number uses a five-figure or six-figure number on the basis of their chemical structure.  For instance, C.I. pigment blue 15 (C.I. 74160) and C.I. pigment blue 75 (C.I. 74160:2). Colon is introduced in the C.I. to indicate structural differences.  There are approximately 27,000 individual products under 13,000 C.I. generic names. Some of the commonly used colors, such as red, orange, yellow, blue, green, brown, and others are mentioned below along with their color indices and applications.

Phthalocyanine blue is obtained from phthalocyanine compound. It is a crystalline bright blue pigment, which is used in plastic, paints, and inks. Ultramarine blue pigment is obtained from a synthetic inorganic compound, sodium aluminosilicate, containing sulfur. It is manufactured by heating sodium carbonate, sulfur, kaolin, and other ingredients. Cobalt blue is manufactured by heating cobalt oxide and aluminum at high temperature. Egyptian blue pigment is obtained from the compound, calcium copper silicate. These blue color pigments have high light-fastness, weather resistance, and high alkali resistance.

The blue pigments have applications across various industries such as paints & coatings, plastic, textile, paper, and printing inks, among others. They are used as a blue colorant in plastics and masterbatches. They are used in paper, fiber, plastics paints, and rubbers as optical whiteners.

LAMEA Review

The pigments market share in UAE has prospered due to the booming construction industry in this region. In August 2016, UAE planned to invest in Ukraine to focus on strategic developments in key sectors such as aviation, shipbuilding, industrial, aerospace, automotive, furniture, and others. These developments are expected to drive the market for pigments during the forecast period. In January 2016, Ferro Corporation acquired “Ferer” to strengthen its position in the glass market of Turkey. With this acquisition, Ferro increased its production capacity of pigments to meet the current and future demand in Turkey as well as of the Middle East and North African market. In 2015, Ferro Corporation acquired Al Salomi, an Egyptian tile coatings manufacturer, to enhance its high performance pigments business. This is expected to increase the production of pigments during the forecast period.
