Global Colorants Market

Global Colorants Market

Short Description

By Color (Natural Color, Synthetic Color), Product (Pigments, Dyes, Color concentrates, Masterbatches), End-User (Packaging, Paper & Printing, Textiles, Building & Construction, Automotive, Consumer Goods, Others), Geography (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Europe, South America, Middle East and Africa)

Market Definition

Colorant is a substance that is used in order to change the material’s surface. They are used for painting, coloring of different materials such as painting, printing and for the coloration of different materials such as plastics and food. Most of the colorants have classifications such as dyes and pigments. Dyes are soluble colored organic compounds used for textiles in water whereas pigments are insoluble compounds that hold application in paints, printing inks and plastics.

Market Segmentation

The global colorant market is segmented into three notable segments which are color, product and end-user.
On the basis of color, the market is segmented into natural and synthetic color. Natural colorant is further sub-segmented into green, red, yellow, brown, violet, purple, blue, white, black and others. Synthetic colors are again sub-segmented into green, red, yellow, brown, violet, purple, blue, white, black and others.
On the basis of product, the market is segmented into pigments, dyes, color concentrates and masterbatches. Pigments are sub-segmented into organic and inorganic. Organic is further sub sub-segmented into azo, polycyclic, anthraquinone, dioxazine, triarylcarbonium and quinophthalone. Inorganic is further sub-subbed segmented into colored and white. Colored again is classified into CICP, metal oxides, metal salts and others. White is segmented into opaque and non-opaque. Dyes are further sub-segmented based on by type, by nature, by lake and by chemistry. Based on by type, it is further sub segmented into natural, by source and synthetic. Natural, by source is again sub-sub segmented into plants, animals and minerals. Dyes, by nature is further sub segmented into acidic and basic. Dyes, by lake, are further segmented into basic, fat soluble and metal complex. Dyes, by chemistry is segmented into direct dyes, mordant dyes, disperse dyes, reactive dyes, acid dyes, direct dyes, VAT dyes, azoic dyes, Sulphur dyes and others. Color concentrates are segmented again to solid and liquid. Masterbatches are sub segmented into white, black and color.
On the basis of end-user, the market is segmented into packaging, paper & printing, textiles, building & construction, automotive, consumer goods and others. Packaging is further sub segmented into food & Beverage, healthcare and consumer goods. Textiles are further sub segmented into fabric coloring, printed fabrics and leather. Building & construction is further sub segmented into paints & coatings, plastics and others. Automotive is further sub segmented into paints and coatings, plastics and textiles.
