Dye & Pigment Manufacturing in the US
The Dye and Pigment Manufacturing industry has exhibited robust growth over the past five years, due to strong demand for industry products from end-user markets. Moreover, the industry is expected to expand over the next five years, due to robust demand from downstream sectors, including the housing and automotive sector. As many foreign manufacturers, most notably China, contend with more stringent environmental regulations, this trend will lower the industry's exposure to strong price-based competition and further benefit the industry. However, dye and pigment manufacturers will still grapple with securing low-cost input commodities, thus cutting into industry revenue growth.
This industry manufactures synthetic organic and inorganic dyes and pigments, such as lakes and toners (except electrostatic and photographic). The industry produces various pigments and dyes, including color, lead, chrome, metallic and zinc-based pigments, as well as disperse, vat and direct dyes. As a chemical intermediate product, these pigments and dyes are used to impart color to numerous products.
