The Global Plastic Pigment Market size is projected to grow from USD 2.5 billion in 2021 to XX billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 4.1%. The key drivers for the growth of this industry are the increasing demand for plastics in packaging applications and the development of new pigments that can be used in other industries such as automotive and building & construction.


Plastic Pigment is a type of colorant that is used to make plastics, rubber, and linoleum more colorful. The pigments are dissolved in the plastic material before being molded or extruded into various shapes. Plastic can be made white by adding titanium dioxide or zinc oxide as an agent for whitening; other colors may also be added depending on the desired effect. Pigmented plastics are employed extensively in everyday items such as food packaging, Tupperware containers, toys, toothbrushes, and soap dispensers among others.


On the basis of Types, the market is segmented into Inorganic Pigment, Organic Pigment.


Inorganic Plastic Pigment:

The inorganic pigments are made from a variety of minerals like barium sulfate or titanium dioxide which provides them with different properties such as light-reflecting abilities or opacity. Unlike organic pigments, they need to be suspended in water because there is no solubility for this type of pigment hence increasing their cost compared to other types. The main application for these colors would be found in packaging applications where durability is key since it will not deteriorate over time when exposed to UV rays.


Organic Plastic Pigment:

Organic pigments are derived from natural origin materials and have certain advantages over inorganic pigments. Organic pigment is made of renewable resources like oils, animal or plant fats which makes them more environmentally friendly than other types of colorants. It also means that at the end of their service life they can be recycled with no toxic waste products created as a by-product during production.


On the basis of Application, the market is segmented into Packaging, Consumer Goods, Building & Construction, and Automotive.



The plastic pigment is used in packaging as colorant for a variety of products such as milk cartons, beverage bottles, and food containers. It provides an alternative to other additives which are harmful to human health that may be present in the product. The need for plastic pigment has resulted from the increased demand for convenience items where there is less emphasis on color quality or aesthetics than before.


Consumer Goods:

Plastic pigments are used in many consumer goods such as plastic containers, tableware, food packaging, and appliances. They provide color to these products without the use of any dye or pigment that could leach into the product's contents.


Building & Construction:

Plastic Pigment is a colorant that can be used in the construction industry. It comes in different grades, including for interior and exterior use, as well as paints or coatings. Plastic pigments are mostly found in applications such as paint primers, fillers, and topcoats; textiles finishes; roofing products; window glazing compounds; sealants & adhesives.



In automotive, plastic pigment is used in the exterior and interior parts of automobiles. On the exterior, it is extensively employed for painting vehicles to give them a glossy finish. The major pigments which are used include titanium dioxide (TiO), zinc oxide, and lead-based paints. Some other popular types of paint finishes include satin finish, matte or low gloss finish, etc.


On the basis of Region, the market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. The North American market is anticipated to hold the major share of Plastic Pigment in 2028. The long-term growth is attributed to the rise in demand for plastic pigment owing to its application in the automotive and packaging sectors.


Growth Factors For The Global Plastic Pigment Market:

The key driving factors for the growth of this market are the rise in the demand for plastic pigments because of their durability and low maintenance. This also reduces the cost to produce items such as plastics, paints, textiles, graphic arts, paper coating, etc., which leads to a decrease in production costs and an increase in profit margins.
