Global Plastic Pigments Market Driver:

 Expansion of Automotive Industry to Augment the Market Growth - There is an increasing demand for lightweight materials in the automotive industry, as they can help reduce the weight of vehicles & improve fuel efficiency. Plastic pigments are used to produce lightweight plastic components that are utilized in automobiles for bumpers, dashboards, and door panels. The automotive industry is increasingly focusing on the customization of automotive components to differentiate its products from competitors. These pigments offer a wide range of color options, which can help manufacturers create customized parts attracting customers.

Moreover, many countries, like China, the US, Japan, Germany, etc., are experiencing a surge in automobile production due to ascending demand & expanding government support. Hence, this surge in automobile production across the globe is significantly contributing to the requirement for plastic pigments. Furthermore, the demand for electric vehicles is advancing rapidly, which can boost the need for these pigments. Hence, plastic components are used extensively in the production of electric vehicles, therefore their demand is expected to supplement in the coming years.

Global Plastic Pigments Market Possible Restraint:

Surging Environmental Regulations Across the Globe to Hamper the Market Growth - Plastics are synthetic products having several hazardous impacts on human health as well as on the environment. As a result, governments have set up stringent regulations to regulate the production & usage of plastics among several end-user groups.

In addition to it, there has been growing prominence for using biodegradable or eco-friendly materials to replace plastic products. The packaging industry is increasingly adopting wood-based or paper-based cutlery instead of traditional plastic packaging to reduce the environmental degradation caused by the usage of plastics. Further, there is a growing consumer preference for edible packaging materials or cutlery, which are initially used to pack food and may afterward be consumed. As a result, severe laws & the availability of substitutes in some industries are restricting demand for plastics. This, in turn, is hampering the growth of the Plastic Pigments market globally.

Global Plastic Pigments Market Growth Opportunity:

 Rising Construction Sector to Positively Augment the Demand - The construction industry has been a significant contributor to the growth of the Plastic Pigments market, as plastic materials such as PVC, polyethylene, and polypropylene are widely used in the construction of various products like pipes, windows, and doors. They are used to provide color & UV resistance to these products.

Furthermore, many countries, such as the UAE, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, India, etc., are investing in tourism infrastructure, including hotels, resorts, theme parks, etc., to support economic growth & development. This has led to an upsurge in construction activity in many countries & would contribute to the market growth during the forecast period. Further, the rising construction of residential buildings is positively impacting the market. Moreover, the new buildings require the fittings of PVC pipes, window panels, roofing, and other plastic-based structures. Hence, this, in turn, requires such pigments to provide color & aesthetic looks to the plastic. For instance:

  • In 2022, Aldar Properties, Dubai, announced its new residential project with a capacity of nearly 2000 apartments. The project is expected to be open in 2023. 

The new housing buildings also generate the demand for durable furnishing articles made of plastic, such as chairs, tables, and shelves. This, again, would result in increased use of plastic pigments to give a decorative look to these articles, thus positively impacting the market during the forecast period.

Global Plastic Pigments Market Key Trend:

Surging Investments in the R&D of Advanced Plastics for 3D Printing - With the constant technological advancements & upgradation in technology, advanced painting solutions are being developed to be utilized in 3D printing. These paints are specially designed with UV-resistant characters so that the structure produced using 3D printing can sustain for a longer time with improved versatility. This category of plastic material is used as ink in 3D printing & uses specialized plastic pigments, which make the plastic & the color safe for use. The growing use of 3D printing in various domains, such as real estate, healthcare, automobile, and many others, would enhance the demand for plastic-based inks, thus, influencing market growth in the coming years.
