Global Pearlescent Pigment Market 2018-2022

About Pearlescent Pigment

Pearlescent pigments are special kind of pigments that belong to the fluorescent and phosphorescent pigments category. These pigments are made from naturally from fish scales or synthetic mica platelets or artificial glass substrates followed by semitransparent layers of metal oxides. They deliver superior whiteness, shine: and coverage with extraordinary optical effects ranging from a fine-grained luster to a bold silvery-white sparkle. Due to the properties like multiple reflections and refractions, the pearlescent pigments exhibit a lustrous sheen, pearl-like gloss, and high refractive coefficients. When coated with transparent substances like mica oxide, dye: or carbon black powder, the sheen and gloss effects can be tremendously increased. Due to its excellent properties, it is highly recommended in general industrial coatings, plastics, and printing ink applications.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global pearlescent pigment market to grow at a CAGR of 4.58% during the period 2018-2022.
