Market Overview

The market for Dyes & Pigments is anticipated to register a CAGR of over 5% during the forecast period. Major factors driving the market studied are growing demand from the paint & coating industries of Europe and Asia-Pacific, and rising demand from the textile industry. By end-user industry, the paint & coating segment is expected to dominate the market, in terms of revenue.

  • The industry faces several concerns regarding the emission of harmful VOCs from coatings. Conventional petroleum-based products are constantly coming under scrutiny, due to the increasing effort to reduce carbon footprint. These concerns have encouraged the emergence of bio-based solvents and pigments for exceptional bio-degradable properties. As consumers become more conscious of environmental impact and sustainability, organizations are expected to be more heavily impacted by their commitment towards minimizing the environmental footprint from their existing and upcoming products.
  • In the last two decades, the EPA, along with other national and international agencies, has placed increasingly strict regulations on the manufacture and use of synthetic colorants. A majority of dyes and pigment are used in the textile industry. Most processes that are performed in textile mills produce atmospheric emissions. Speculations concerning the amounts and types of air pollutants emitted from textile operations has been widespread. This is likely to hinder the market’s growth.
  • The field of 3D printing materials has largely been the domain of experimenters. Nevertheless, the demand for reliable commercial products is increasing. Companies now use this method for the small- and medium-scale production of customized machine parts, gourmet food items, and even customized artificial body parts. However, major manufacturing companies are looking into 3D printing for large-scale production of machine parts, toys, and consumer electronics, these are projected to act as an opportunity for the market in future.
