The global dyes and pigments market grew at a CAGR of around 6% during 2014-2019. Dyes and pigments refer to various coloring agents used for adding colors to commercially used textiles, papers, leathers, rubbers and other beverages. Dyes are water-soluble substances that are majorly used in a liquid form on plastics, fabrics, leather, paper and wood products. Some of the commonly available variants include disperse, reactive, azo, vat, sulfur- and solvent-based dyes. On the other hand, pigments are coloring agents available in the form of small insoluble particles that disperse in liquid paint or ink. They are usually mixed with a dispersing agent that sticks the pigment onto the surface of the material.

Significant growth in the construction, chemical and pharmaceutical industries is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Furthermore, widespread product adoption for paint and coating applications is also driving the market growth. For instance, in the textile industry, disperse dyes are primarily used to color polyesters, and cotton fabrics are colored using vat, reactive and direct dyes. The construction industry utilizes dyes and pigments for dying pavers, concrete masonry, tiles, pipes, panels and precast walls as they aid in enhancing the overall aesthetic appeal, opacity and durability of the products. Additionally, increasing environmental consciousness among the masses and the development of organic dyes and pigments are also contributing to the market growth. In comparison to the traditionally used petroleum-based inorganic dyes, natural variants are manufactured using plant-based compounds and carbon chains that do not cause pollution. This, along with various product innovations, such as the development of corrosion and ultraviolet (UV)-resistant variants, is projected to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global dyes and pigments market to continue its moderate growth during the next five years.
