The growth in the building and construction industry across the globe has been contributing significantly to driving the demand for inorganic color pigments. Countries such as ChinaIndia, the U.S., and Germany are some major countries showing significant growth potential in the construction sector. Increasing industrialization coupled with rising population has encouraged governments to raise their construction spending for infrastructural development which is expected to boost the construction activities and will create massive demand for inorganic color pigments in the coming years.

Moreover, inorganic color pigments are also widely used in the plastics industry. They are used as a colorant in manufacturing various plastic products including auto parts, fenders, soda bottles, food packaging, toys, vinyl sidings, and others. Rising adoption of plastics as a substitution of glass, metals, wood, natural rubber, and other materials is expected to drive the global plastics market. Various products such as polyvinyl chloride, polyethylene terephthalate, polyolefins, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, and other plastics are rapidly replacing most materials in the automotive, construction and infrastructure, and packaging, and other application sectors. Increasing regulations and awareness regarding the reduction of carbon emissions are leading to the replacement of metals and heavy materials with lightweight plastics, especially in automobiles and industrial machinery. All these factors are expected to have a positive impact on the demand for inorganic color pigments over the forecast period.
