Dublin, Jan. 31, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Plastic Pigments Market by Type (Inorganic/Organic Pigments), End-Use Industry (Packaging, Consumer Goods, Building & Construction, Automotive) Region (APAC, North America, Europe, Middle East & Africa, South America) - Global Forecast to 2023" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The market size of plastic pigments is estimated at USD 10.3 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 14.8 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 7.5% from 2018 to 2023.

The growth of this market is attributed to the increasing significance of aesthetics in packaging, industrialization in emerging economies. Another factor driving the plastic pigments market is high demand for packaging in emerging countries and high demand for high-performance pigments.

However, factors, such as the volatility of raw material prices and environmental regulations are restraining the growth of the market. Most of the raw materials used in the production of plastic pigments are synthetic rutile, iron ore, and natural gas. The prices of these raw materials have been highly volatile in recent times, touching a five-year low, which has affected the growth of the market.

The organic plastic pigments type segment is projected to register the higher CAGR during the forecast period.

Organic pigments are expected to be the fastest-growing type of plastic pigments owing to increasing environmental regulations in the plastic industry. Organic pigments have superior heat stability and excellent light fastness properties. However, these can also contain metallic (inorganic) elements that help stabilize the properties of the organic components. Different types of organic pigments include azo pigments, diazo, naphthol, azo lakes, metal complex, phthalocyanine, anthraquinone, and quinophthalone.

Packaging to be the largest end-use industry of plastic pigments in terms of volume and value.

Packaging is expected to be the largest and the fastest-growing end-use industry in the plastic pigments market during the forecast period. The packaging application of plastic pigments includes food packaging, pharmaceutical packaging, and healthcare packaging. Plastic pigments are widely used in both rigid packaging and flexible packaging. The use of plastic pigments in plastic packaging not only provides an aesthetic appeal to packaged products but also helps in product differentiation, thereby influencing the preferences of customers.

APAC projected to be the largest plastic pigments market, in terms of volume, during the forecast period.

The APAC plastic pigments market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the increased demand for plastics in the region, resulting from a growing middle-class population, rapid urbanization, and increasing purchasing power of consumers. The growing consumer goods and packaging end-use industries in this region fuel the demand for plastic pigments in the APAC region, thereby contributing to the growth of the plastic pigments market in the region.

The key players in the plastic pigments market include, Clariant (Switzerland), BASF SE (Germany), DIC Corporation (Japan), Huntsman Corporation (US), Cabot Corporation (US), LANXESS (Germany), PolyOne Corporation (US), The Chemours Company (US), Heubach GmbH (Germany), Tronox Limited (US), and Ferro Corporation (US).
