The global pigments market size is expected to reach USD 36.36 Billion in 2030 and register a revenue CAGR of 5.2% over the forecast period, according to latest report by Reports and Data. Growing automobile and construction industry is a major factor expected to drive market revenue growth. In the construction industry, pigments are used to add lasting color to a number of building materials used in architecture and infrastructure projects. Architects and designers use colored cement as a tool to incorporate an element of innovation, differentiation, and exclusivity into their projects. Therefore, a continuous upturn in construction spending is expected to drive the pigments market revenue share globally. According to a report by European Parliament on 17 February 2020, more than 40% of buildings in Europe are built before 1960 and 90% before 1990; consuming more amount of energy compared to the new ones. Hence, renovation activities of these buildings are expected to increase in the forecast period, which in turn is expected to drive the market revenue growth.

Rapid growth of the printing ink industry owing to growth in e-commerce and package food business is expected to have a positive impact on the pigments market during the forecast period. Pigments are used in different types of printing inks, such as publication gravure inks, offset inks, decorative laminate inks, solvent-based packaging inks, and water-based packaging inks. Moreover, rising demand for cosmetics and other personal care products is expected to drive revenue growth of the pigments market. The beauty & makeup industry is growing rapidly due to increased globalization and introduction of multiple new makeup brands. This is expected to drive the pigments market revenue growth over the forecast period.

However, volatility in raw materials prices and environmental concerns is resulting in increasing preference for eco-friendly products, which are limiting revenue growth of the pigments market.
