Plastic pigments Market: Introduction

Pigments are particles added to the polymer base in order to provide a specific color or functional benefits to the plastic. Pigments are widely adopted across wide application areas including color painting, ink, food, cosmetics, plastic, fabric and others. Various color shades and properties can be achieved with the use of organic and inorganic pigments. The global plastic pigments market is expected to foray ahead with a single digit CAGR over the forecast period of 2019-2029. Increase in plastic production across the globe has leveraged huge adoption avenues for the plastic pigments. As per Plastics Europe, the global plastic production in 2016 was recorded to be around 280 million tons that further increased to 350 million tons in 2017. Moreover, factors such as strong demand from the end-use industries, technological advancements coupled with high demand for High-Performance Pigments (HPPs) are expected to propel the plastic pigment market growth till 2029. However, volatile raw material prices along with stringent environmental regulations are acting as a restraining factor to the plastic pigments market growth over the forecast period.

Rising demand from end-use industries is providing traction to the plastic pigments market growth over the forecast period

Major end-use industries including packaging, automotive, construction etc. are inclined towards high performance pigments that is creating growth opportunities for plastic pigments market. High performance pigments possess various advantages including high insolubility, heat stability, color strength, low migration, solvent fastness etc. Further, growth in the end-use industries is augmenting the adoption of plastic pigments, thereby driving the plastic pigments market growth over the forecast period. According to Institution of Civil Engineers, UK, a report “Global Construction Perspectives and Oxford Economics” suggests that the global construction market is expected to reach US$ 8 trillion by the end of 2030. Also, as per OICA (International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers), Paris, the total cars and commercial vehicle production in 2016 was recorded to be around 72.1 million that further escalated to 73.4 million in 2017. Therefore, growth in end-use industries consequently calls for plastic pigments.
