The global pigments market was valued at USD XX million in 2016. This market is projected to reach USD XX million by 2022, at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period (2017-2022).

Pigments are solid materials that impart color to the substrate on which they are used. Pigments possess higher tinting strength when compared to the substrate. Pigments are also insoluble and are applied not as solutions, but as finely ground solid particles mixed with a liquid. Pigments are used for coloring paint, ink, plastic, fabric, cosmetics, food, and other materials.

Two major factors driving the growth of the pigments market worldwide are growing construction activities in Asia-Pacific, and increased industrial activities in Asia-Pacific and Middle East. On the flipside, the enactment of stringent environmental regulations regarding the application of paints & coatings may hinder the growth of the market

The pigments market has been segmented based on product, and end-user industry. Based on product, the market has been segmented into organic, inorganic, and specialty pigments. Based on end-user industry, the market has been segmented into paints & coatings, printing inks, automotive, plastics, and others (including textile and construction). In 2016, the paints & coatings segment dominated the global market.

The market has been segmented further, based on geography, into North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, South America, and Middle East 7 Africa. In 2017, Asia-Pacific is likely to dominate the global market with a share of XX%.
