The global pigment dispersion market grew at a CAGR of 4% during 2015-2020. Pigments are insoluble particles that are utilized for imparting color in paints, coatings, plastics and other materials. In pigment dispersion, pigment agglomerates are broken into primary particles by shearing forces and impact. This process involves three steps – wetting, dispersing, and stabilizing. Pigment dispersion is required for the production of quality paints and helps in maintaining the expected color standards in the paint. Dispersing agents are selected according to the pigment's surface nature, which can be both organic and inorganic. The essential properties of pigment dispersion include stability, viscosity, bright hue, and optimal pigment size. Improper dispersion can cause various defects, like flocculation, leveling, decreased gloss levels, color change, sagging, settling, and separation.
There has been a significant rise in the use of plastics in the food packaging sector, which represents one of the key factors driving the market growth. Besides this, an increase in the utilization of different colorants and the popularity of paper and paperboard to manufacture attractive packaging solutions is contributing to the market growth. Moreover, rapid urbanization has led to a rise in the number of construction projects in the commercial and residential sectors. These projects complement the inflating demand for high-quality paints and coatings, which further supports the pigment dispersions market growth. In addition to this, governments of several nations have implemented regulations to curb the usage of toxic colors and coatings. These laws have prompted manufacturers to address the growing demand for organic paints and coatings, which, in turn, is creating a positive outlook for the market. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global pigment dispersion market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
