Synthetic based organic pigments dominate the market in terms of value, with a share of 93.6%. This is due to the fact that these ceramics have wide applications in the printing inks, paints & coating, and plastics amongst others. Synthetic based organic pigments are economical and hence, are widely across the industries. Natural pigments on the other hand are used for specific applications such as cosmetics and in food industry.

HPPs are the fastest-growing form of organic pigments, in terms of value

HPPs are the fastest-growing type of organic pigments. HPPs have excellent lightfastness, heat stability, and are resistant to various chemicals, which make them suitable for applications requiring high performance. Different types of organic HPPs are benzimidazolones, quinacridone, perylene, dioxazine violet, isoindolinones and isoindolines, disazo condensations, phthalocyanines, and diketo-pyrrolo-pyrroles. Due to their superior properties, HPPs are widely accepted in the printing ink, coatings, and paints industries.

Paints and coatings is the fastest-growing application of organic pigments, in terms of value

Due to properties like good weather-fastness, good lightfastness, low migration, and solvent & bleeding fastness, to the end-products organic pigments are widely accepted. Paints & coatings is expected to be the fastest-growing application of organic pigments during the forecast period. Organic pigments are widely used in decorative coatings, marine coatings, automotive coatings, and industrial coatings sectors. The automotive coatings sector is the largest consumer, followed by industrial and decorative coatings. The use of organic pigments in decorative coatings is estimated to increase in the near future owing to the growth in the construction industry.

APAC is the fastest-growing organic pigments market

The global organic pigments market is expected to grow at a decent rate during the forecast period.
