Global Specialty Pigments Market - 2019-2026
発行: DataM Intelligence
The Global Specialty Pigments Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% to reach a market value of USD XX million by 2026.
A pigment is a material that changes the color of reflected or transmitted light as the result of wavelength-selective absorption. This physical process differs from fluorescence, phosphorescence, and other forms of luminescence, in which a material emits light. Most materials selectively absorb certain wavelengths of light.
Specialty pigments adds color and appeal to things around us and are widely used in high-quality inks, high-performance paints and coatings, plastics, and cosmetics. The key features of specialty pigments include unique colors, high hiding efficiency, pH value, refractive index, and bulking. The performance benefits of specialty pigments are made use of by the Security Printing industry for anti-counterfeit labeling, in automotive finishes by the Automotive Sector, and in personal care products.
The global Specialty Pigments Market is primarily driven by heavy investments in the infrastructure in the developing nations like China, Brazil and India due to increase in urbanization, industrialization, rising population and the increase in disposal income of the middle-class people. Moreover, rising demands for automotive has also boosted the market for Specialty pigments.
However, the strict environmental regulations for the use of the pigments in various countries will be hampered the growth of Specialty Pigments.
By Type, the global Specialty Pigments Market is segmented into Organic pigments, Metal effect pigments, High-performance pigments, Light interference pigments, Complex inorganic pigments, Fluorescent pigments, and Luminescent pigments. Organic pigments have the dominant position in the Specialty Pigments market due to increased use in coloring additives, which is extensively used in paints and protective coating. Additionally, Organic pigment are comparatively stronger than inorganic pigments in terms of color strength, dispersion and resistance to temperature. Hence organic pigment is expected to increase its demand and retain its dominance in the forecast period. It is expected that Organic specialty pigment will grow at a CAGR of ~XX% during the forecast period.
By application, the global Specialty Pigments Market is segmented into Paints & Coatings, Plastics, Printing Inks, Toiletries and Others. Paints & Coating have higher dominance in the application of Specialty Pigments due to high growth of automobile industry and the rising demand for the Specialty Pigments in the inner and outer surface of automobile.
By geography, the global Specialty Pigments Market is segmented into North America, Asia-Pacific (APAC), Europe, South America, and Middle East and Africa (MEA).
APAC holds the largest market share for Specialty Pigments Market due to economy rise and rising activity in infrastructure and industrial development in the developing nation like China and India has high demands for Specialty Pigments and has made APAC to hold most of the market share.
FDI inflows to developing Asia remained stable at $476 billion in 2017, thanks to the high-tech sector in China, a rebound in Indonesia, and increases in most ASEAN countries. This was enough to offset declines in other large recipient economies in the region, including Hong Kong (China), Singapore, India and Saudi Arabia. Against the backdrop of a significant decline in worldwide FDI, the region's share in global inflows rose from 25 per cent in 2016 to 33 per cent in 2017. A number of large transactions took place in Hong Kong (China), India and Singapore. The five largest recipients - China, Hong Kong (China), Singapore, India and Indonesia - absorbed four-fifths of FDI inflows to the region.
However, Europe is after APAC in terms of market share of Specialty Pigments Market, due to large investment for the infrastructure development and also due to increase in the urban population, increasing the demand in residential construction will create large demand for Specialty Pigments.
Statistics published by the National Records for Scotland, for example, reveal the influence of these changing demographics, with future household demand rising faster than population growth. By 2037, Scotland's population growth is forecast to be 9 per cent, with growth in the number of households forecast to be 17 per cent. This 8 per cent difference is in effect the household growth demand from the existing population.
In England, between now and 2041, the population is expected to increase by 16 per cent, with projected household growth at 23 per cent, resulting in a 7 per cent difference in demand.
Key players are adopting strategies such as Acquisition, new product launches, and investment in R&D to stand out as strong competitors in the market. The major players include BASF, Clariant, DIC, Ferro, and Flint. Other key players in the market include Dainichiseika Color & Chemicals, DayGlo, Dominion Colour, ECKART Effect Pigments, Flex Products, Merck, NEMOTO, and Toyo Ink Group.
In September 2018, DCC and LANSCO merge together the strengths of both companies, benefitting pigment consuming customers by offering a broad portfolio of color pigments and technical expertise to every corner of the globe. Together, the capabilities of the companies will create one unified team, dedicated to providing innovative and value-based solutions for customers worldwide.
