The global specialty pigments market grew at a CAGR of around 4% during 2015-2020. Specialty pigments refer to high-performance coloring agents mixed with oil, paints, printing inks and plastics to disperse the desired color. They are naturally derived from iron, zinc, copper and aluminum and can also be synthesized artificially. These pigments improve the aesthetic appeal of the substrate and offer various benefits, such as fluorescence, luminescence and pearlescent effects and ultraviolet (UV) curing. Some of the commonly used specialty pigments include organic, metallic, high-performance, light interference and thermochromic pigments, which are available in a wide range of vibrant colors with high luster.
Significant growth in the textile industry, along with the increasing demand for flexible packaging materials, represents one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. People are using specialty pigments to develop attractive packaging with metallic and color-shifting effects for high-end consumer products. Furthermore, rising environmental consciousness and the widespread adoption of sustainable paints are also driving the market growth. These pigments have low toxicity, high biodegradability and enhanced temperature control, especially in thermally effective pigments. They are also used for manufacturing durable and high-performance luster paints and coatings for automobiles, thereby contributing to the market growth. Additionally, various technological advancements, such as innovations in nanotechnology and the development of 3D printing materials, are acting as other major growth-inducing factors. Nanoparticles are widely used to provide aesthetically appealing optical effects in jewelry and cosmetics, thereby increasing the demand for specialty pigments significantly. Other factors, including rising expenditure capacities of the consumers, along with extensive research and development (R&D) activities to create environment-friendly coatings and paints, are anticipated to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global specialty pigments market to continue its moderate growth during the next five years.
