Report Synopsis
Inorganic pigments are comparatively easier to disperse and the dispersion process typically requires three principal components, i.e., pigment, surfactant and grinding vehicle. These three ingredients are precisely calculated and blended during the formulation process. The processing of pigment dispersions faces the challenge of stabilizing the primary particle size and if this is not performed appropriately, the pigment aggregates into groups interconnected through intermolecular forces. Since inorganic pigments are easier to disperse compared to organic pigments, they are extensively utilized in several plastic, printing ink and paint & coating applications. These favorable characteristics of inorganic pigments are likely to drive future market growth.

Asia-Pacific is the largest global market for Inorganic Pigments and also the fastest growing, with the region’s dominance very likely to continue. Rapid industrialization, infrastructure building and a burgeoning automotive industry in regions, such as China and India, will increase demand for paints & coatings, the largest and fastest growing application area for inorganic pigments. The worldwide market is estimated at US$16 billion in 2017 and is forecast to reach US$16.8 billion in 2018.
