Driving Whiteness and Brilliance: White Inorganic Pigments Revolutionize Paints, Coatings, and Plastics Industries
Posted by Jack Martin on May 29th, 2023
White inorganic pigments are a type of pigment made from inorganic materials such as titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, and barium sulphate. These pigments are used in a variety of industries, including paint, coatings, and plastics, to provide a white color or a reflective effect. They are also used in paper and ink applications, as well as in food colouring. The demand for white inorganic pigments is increasing due to their superior performance and cost-effectiveness compared to organic pigments. They offer superior lightfastness and chemical resistance, as well as a wide range of shades, and can be used in a variety of applications.
According to a new report by MarketsandMarkets, the white inorganic pigments market is projected to reach USD 29.5 billion by 2026, from an estimated USD 21.9 billion in 2021, at a CAGR of 5.4%. The increasing demand from the paints & coatings, plastics, and paper & printing industries is expected to drive the market for white inorganic pigments.
