World Dyes & Organic Pigments
World dyes and organic pigments demand is forecast to increase six percent annually through 2020, according to Freedonia analysts. Rising global construction activity will drive demand for paints and coatings, while growth in consumer incomes will increase demand for these products in textiles and plastic products.
8 Products Discussed in Depth
Dyes will remain the larger product segment through 2020. Growth in the global textile market, which uses disperse and reactive dyes as a coloring agent, will drive demand gains. However, pigments sales are expected to outpace dyes, due to the increased usage of higher value pigments in paints and plastics applications.
Paints & Coatings Applications to Drive Growth
Paints and coatings are expected to be the fastest growth application for dyes and organic pigments through 2020, driven by rising construction activity in China and the United States. The continued transition towards higher value and environmentally friendly products will further bolster gains.
Highly Concentrated Industry
The global dye and organic pigment industry is comprised of a broad spectrum of participants ranging from divisions within large multinational integrated chemical concerns to small independent specialty companies. Among the larger producers are BASF, Clariant International, Dainichiseika Color & Chemical, DIC Corporation, Dystar, Huntsman, Jihua, LANXESS, Sensient Technologies, and Zhejiang Longsheng.
