Global Inorganic Color Pigments Market to Grow at 4.5% During 2024-2032, Stimulated by Increasing Need for Sustainability

August 25, 2023 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Inorganic Color Pigments Market Report by Product (Iron Oxide Pigments, Ultramarine Pigments, Carbon Black Pigments, Cadmium Pigments, Chromium Pigments, and Others), Form (Aqueous, Powder), Application (Plastics, Paints and Coatings, Printing Inks, Construction Materials, Textiles, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” the global inorganic color pigments market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.5% during 2024-2032. Inorganic color pigments are finely ground solid particles that impart vivid and stable colors to various products. These pigments are characterized by their resistance to light, heat, and chemicals, making them highly suitable for various applications. They are derived from mineral sources, such as metal oxides and salts, and offer exceptional color consistency and durability, rendering them indispensable in sectors like coatings, plastics, ceramics, and construction materials. These pigments have robust resistance to external elements, which ensures that the colors they produce remain vivid and unaltered over time, making them an ideal choice for products subjected to harsh conditions. They are also highly compatible with various materials and processes, facilitating their integration into diverse industries, enabling manufacturers to achieve desired visual effects without compromising product performance. 

Global Inorganic Color Pigments Market Trends:

The growing demand for inorganic color pigments in the construction sector for imparting long-lasting and eye-catching hues to architectural coatings, concrete, and roofing materials is one of the major factors contributing to the market growth. In line with this, the increasing product demand due to rapid urbanization and infrastructure development prompting the need for aesthetically pleasing and durable construction solutions are propelling the market growth. Moreover, the widespread utilization of inorganic color pigments in the automotive industry for coatings, enhancing both the visual appeal and the durability of vehicles, is providing a thrust to the market growth. Additionally, the rising stringent government regulations and growing awareness of eco-friendly practices prompting manufacturers to innovate and produce pigments with reduced environmental impact, is supporting the market growth. Apart from this, the development of low- volatile organic compounds (VOC) and heavy metal-free inorganic pigments are creating a positive outlook for the market growth. Furthermore, rapid technological advancements to refine pigment production processes, enhancing color accuracy and consistency, leading to increased adoption of inorganic color pigments in applications demanding precision, such as electronics and digital printing, are providing an impetus for the market growth. In addition to this, the increasing product demand in the packaging sector to create visually striking packaging materials that capture consumers' attention as brand identity and differentiation become increasingly critical is providing remunerative opportunities for the market growth.
