Pigments are black, white, or colored, organic or inorganic insoluble solids, which are unaffected physically or chemically by the substrate in which they are incorporated. Incorporation is done by dispersing them on the substrate. Pigments alter the color of the reflected or transmitted light by selective absorption, and also impart color to the medium in which they are dispersed.

The world pigments market is anticipated to reach $26,598 million by 2022 compared to $20,023 million in 2015 growing at a CAGR of 4.1% during the forecast period. It is segmented based on product type, application, color index, and geography. The rise in construction activities, infrastructural development, automotive, and consumer goods sector has resulted in the increased demand for decorative paints and coatings, which boosts the demand for pigments in the paints & coating industry. In addition, pigments have gained increased adoption in the plastic industry owing to the rise in consumption of plastics in end-user industries such as automobile and construction sectors. In terms of applications, the market is categorized as paints & coatings, printings inks, plastics, construction materials, and others. The global pigments market is on a continuous rise due to growth in paints & coatings industry in developing countries such China, India, and Brazil.

Based on the product type, pigments are segmented as organic, inorganic, and specialty. Inorganic pigments dominated the global pigments market in 2015, owing to their advantages such as high heat and weather resistance, flame retardance, high light fastness, and antistatic benefits.

Based on the color index, pigments are segmented as red, orange, yellow, blue, green, brown, and others. Color index classification system was introduced to nomenclate the pigment names that are derived from the chemical structures of the pigments.  

Region-wise, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. Asia-Pacific led the market in 2015, and is anticipated to maintain this trend during the forecast period, due to the increase in demand for pigments in construction sector. Moreover, the rise in per capita plastic consumption in emerging economies of China and India is projected to drive the demand for pigments in the plastic industry in Asia-Pacific.
