Dyes and Pigments Market Outlook – Growth of Textile Industry Expected to Amplify Demand
Dyes and pigments are extensively used in the textile and automotive industries. Growing automobile and textile industries are expected to increase the demand for dyes and pigments. Asia Pacific is expected to be a major contributor for growth of the dyes and pigments market. Rapidly growing textile industry in the emerging economies such as India and China is one of the major factors contributing to the growth of the market in the region.

This, in turn, has augmented growth of the dyes and pigments market in the region.
Increasing regulatory restrictions on production of dyes and pigments is expected to be one of the major factors restraining growth of the dyes and pigments market. The Environmental Protection Agency of the United States, has implemented regulations that enlist potential effects of waste generated from the production of azo, triarylmethane, and anthraquinone dye and pigment product classes.
Expanding production, distribution, and research on improving properties of ecofriendly colorants are some of the key strategies adopted by top players in the global dyes and pigments industry. These dyes and pigments are usually used for coloring textiles, paper, plastics, leather, inks, paints/coatings, food, drugs, and cosmetics.
Some of the major companies operating in the dyes and pigments market are Clariant AG, BASF SE, DIC Corporation Kiri Industries Ltd., Atul Limited, Sudharshan Chemical Industries Limited, Huntsman Corporation, Kronos Worldwide, Inc., Lanxess AG, and Tronox Limited.
