The organic pigments market size is estimated at USD 3.69 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 4.67 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 4.8% between 2018 and 2023.

The high demand for organic pigments in various applications, such as printing inks, paints & coatings, and plastics, is expected to drive the organic pigments market.

The key restraining factor in the organic pigments market is the high cost of organic pigments. Organic pigments are, approximately, one and a half times costlier than inorganic pigments, which limits its market in paints & coatings and other applications that are not subject to stringent regulations.

Based on type, the organic pigments market has been segmented into azo pigments, phthalocyanine pigments, HPPs, and others. The azo pigments segment is expected to be the largest type due to the large-scale usage in printing inks applications which are used in food & beverage and consumer goods packaging. The availability of a range of different colors, such as red, orange, and yellow, of azo pigments at a low price is also a major reason for the large demand.

Based on application, the organic pigments market has been segmented into printing inks, paints & coatings, plastics, and others. Organic pigments are widely used in printing inks in packaging and printing media industries due to stringent government regulation against usage of metallic content pigments.

Based on region, the organic pigments market has been segmented into Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, the Middle East & Africa, and South America. The organic pigments market in Asia Pacific is projected to be the largest and fastest-growing, owing to the growing demand from packaging, automotive, and construction industries in the region.

Companies such as BASF SE (Germany), Clariant AG (Switzerland), DIC Corporation (Japan), Heubach GmbH (Germany), Sudarshan Chemical Industries Ltd. (India), Ferro Corporation (US), Trust Chem Co. Ltd. (China), Dainichiseika Color & Chemicals Mfg. Co., Ltd. (Japan), Dominion Colour Corporation (Canada), and Toyocolor Co. Ltd. (Japan) have adopted new product launches, agreements & partnerships, mergers & acquisitions, and investments & expansions strategies to enhance their foothold in the market.
