Some Key Highlights from the Report

  • On 30 June 2021, DIC Corporation, which is a Japanese chemical company completed the acquisition of BASF's global pigments business known as BASF Colors & Effects. DIC acquired BASF's patents, technologies, manufacturing assets, supply chain, and customer service capabilities.
  • Inorganic segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2021, owing to its composition, and low cost. Inorganic pigments are usually opaque and more insoluble than organic pigments owing to their composition. Market revenue growth in case of inorganic pigments can be attributed to rising involvement of inorganic pigments in multiple inorganic applications. Furthermore, there is a continuous rise in demand for construction, automotive, and plastic industries for inorganic pigmentations owing to properties such as high light scattering power, a high degree of hiding power, and good tinting strength, among others. In addition to it, market players are focusing on expansion of production capacity in order to cater to the inorganic pigments demand. For example, on 31 March 2021, LANXESS AG expanded its Colortherm yellow pigment range for heat-resistant high-performance plastics. They are comprised of iron oxide and zinc oxide, and they are particularly intended for cost-effective coloring in the 220°C to 260°C temperature range.
  • Paints and coatings segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2021. Paint & coating industry uses specialty pigment to manufacture paint for application in different industries. In the forecast period, various expansions in the paints and coatings industry are expected to drive the pigment market. For example, on 29 November 2021, Asian Paints announced intentions to invest USD 127 million in its Gujarat factory in India in the next two to three years to increase paints manufacturing capacity from 130,000 kiloliters to 250,000-kilotons. PPG Industries Inc. invested USD 13 million in its paints and coatings unit in China on 13 May 2021. The capacity is expected to be increased by over 8,000 metric tons per year as a result of this development.
  • In the forecast period, the European pigments market is expected to be driven by increased demand for eco-friendly paints and coatings as a result of rising environmental awareness. Furthermore, the region's growing automotive OEM and refinish industries are expected to drive product demand for decorating paints and coatings. In addition, technological advancements in food processing, together with rising demand for functional foods, are expected to drive market expansion in Germany.
  • Some of the major companies included in the global market report are BASF SE, ECKART GMBH, Clariant AG, Ferro Corporation, DIC Corporation, Heubach GmbH, Trust Chem Co. Ltd., Toyocolor Co. Ltd., Colorfix, Huntsman International LLC, Kebotix, Inc., and Sudarshan Chemical Industries Ltd.
