The market growth is primarily driven by the expanding automobile and construction industries. Pigments are utilized in the construction sector to add long-lasting color to various building materials, enabling architects and designers to incorporate innovation and exclusivity into their projects. The continuous increase in construction spending worldwide, coupled with the need for renovation activities in older buildings, is expected to contribute to the overall revenue growth of the pigments market.

The printing ink industry is also expected to experience rapid growth, thanks to the flourishing e-commerce and packaged food sectors. Pigments find extensive application in different types of printing inks, such as publication gravure inks, offset inks, and various packaging inks. Additionally, the increasing demand for cosmetics and personal care products is driving the growth of the pigments market. With the beauty and makeup industry witnessing rapid expansion and the introduction of numerous new makeup brands, the demand for pigments is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period.

Nevertheless, the pigments market faces challenges due to volatility in raw material prices and growing environmental concerns. These factors have led to a preference for eco-friendly products, thereby limiting the revenue growth of traditional pigments.
