Pigments are insoluble particulate materials that provide color, opacity, gloss control, rheological control, and certain functions such as corrosion inhibition or magnetic moment. Pigments that are made up of mineral compounds are known as inorganic pigments. Inorganic pigments are considered better over their organic counterparts. These inorganic pigments can withstand the impact of sunlight and chemical exposure in a better way. They have also good opacity and thus these can protect other objects by preventing the light. These pigments also increase rash inhibition, abrasion resistance, and rigidity to the molecules. These pigments are available at low cost in respect to the organic pigments. These pigments have more durability. Inorganic pigments are available in the market in different forms. Different forms are powder, pastes, slurries, and suspensions. Inorganic pigments have various benefits including high stability in the organic solvents, high resistance to pigment bleeding and migration, higher heat stability and among others.
Growing consumption of inorganic pigments in the manufacturing of paints and coating drives the growth of inorganic pigments market. Inorganic pigments play a vital role in the production of paints and coatings. The aerospace, consumer products, original equipment manufacturing, shipbuilding, and infrastructure supplies industries are the major consumers of paints and coatings, that in turn drives the growth of inorganic pigments market. The growing infrastructure also drives the growth of inorganic pigments as they are used in paint products, anticorrosion coatings, fireproofing coatings, and other materials for use in residential, institutional, and commercial buildings. In addition, the growth of the packaging industry drives the growth of the inorganic pigment market. Inorganic pigments are used in printing inks such as offset inks, publication gravure inks, packaging inks, and many others. Inorganic solvent-based inks are important for the printing on the flexible, uncoated vinyl substrates and other packing inks that need to the UV resistant and waterproof. Furthermore, the textiles sector is one of the largest contributors to the growth of inorganic pigment market. However, the negative environmental impacts and stringent regulations hamper the growth of the inorganic pigment market. Moreover, the increasing demand for inorganic pigments generates fruitful opportunities for the growth of this market.
