Regional Governments & Environment Regulatory Bodies across Regions Promoting the Use of Azo Pigments

Published On : Nov 10, 2021

The global azo pigments market is expected to witness a CAGR of 4.1% and be valued at US$ 2.3 Bn by 2031, as per the latest industry analysis by Persistence Market Research.

Increase in regulations imposed on the use of harmful synthetic chemicals across the globe is expected to emerge as a key factor bolstering the sales of azo pigments. With rising awareness about environment protection, a giant shift toward organic products has been detected over recent years. Also, plastic production is also increasing at a rapid pace. Consistent growth in demand for plastics is driving the sales of pigments for plastic coloring.

However, high production cost associated with azo pigments elevates product pricing. Presence of cheaper alternatives will hamper overall market growth, especially in emerging markets with governmental regulations, such as India, Brazil, Egypt, and others.

However, market players are launching innovative products to stay ahead of the competition, such as:

  • In 2021, Sun Chemical, a fully owned subsidiary of DIC Corporation, announced the launch of two new cosmetic effect pigments that are based on an innovative patent-pending process.

Key Takeaways from Market Study

  • Global sales of azo pigments are anticipated to reach a value of US$ 2.3 Bn by the end of 2031.
  • East Asia is the most prominent region in the market owing to high presence of end-use industries.
  • Growing demand for paints & varnishes is expected to drive the need for azo pigments over the forecast period.
  • Stringent regulations imposed over the use and production of conventional pigments are expected to elevate demand for azo pigments.
  • High cost associated with azo pigments is hindering overall market growth to some extent.

“Increasing stringent regulations on the use and production of conventional pigments are set to demand for azo pigments over the coming years,” says a Persistence Market Research analyst.
