Migration of Pigment Manufacturing Facilities

Posted by sainath on October 29th, 2018

There has been an increasing migration of manufacturing capacities from the West to low-cost countries in the Asia-Pacific region. This is driven mainly by stringent environmental compliance issues in Europe and North America. Gradually maturing production technologies and the presence of strong downstream customer bases within countries such as China and India have been propelling demand for pigments in these countries in recent years. Examples of companies  that have moved their manufacturing facilities to the Asian region are Huntsman Corp, Dystar and Clariant.


Western Europe was the largest region in the synthetic dye and pigment market in 2017, accounting for one-third of the market share.

According to The Business Research Company’s Consultant, Nitin Gianchandani, many textile companies are starting to opt for eco-friendly dyes for producing textiles and fabrics. They are not using harmful dyes while processing and dyeing the fibres into fabrics as they are cause extensive damage to the environment and they are also known to cause skin allergies and respiratory diseases. Due to the positive environmental characteristics and low toxicity of eco-friendly dyes, many companies are moving toward eco-friendly organic dyes, though they remain highly priced in comparison to inorganic dyes.

Dye is a colored substance that has an affinity to the substrate to which it is being applied. Dyes are applied in an aqueous solution and may require a mordant to improve their fastness on the fiber. Pigments are substances that impart black, white or a color to other materials, especially in a powdered substance that is mixed with a liquid in which it is relatively insoluble and are used specially to impart color to coating materials (as paints) or to inks, plastics and rubber. Chlorophyll, Carotenoid, Phycobilin and Melanin are some pigments. This industry also includes food coloring manufacturing.
