Solid Growth of Paints and Pigment Industry

The paint and pigment industry segment is dominating the aluminum paste market in 2020 and will continue its dominance in the forecast period. Aluminum pastes have special properties that give different appearances to the paints is one of the high-impact driving factors for its growing adoption in the paint and pigment industry. Additionally, it's anti-corrosion, and anti-wear properties that prevent cracks and provide long life for paints are some of the other important factors contributing to the segment's growth. The aluminum pigment absorbs the light of the particular wavelength and reflects the other, adding a sparkling effect to the paint coating. The effect is determined by the quantity of pigment used. The global paints and coating market was valued at just under USD 150 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach over USD 185 billion by the end of 2027. This, in turn, will drive the demand for aluminum paste over the forecast period.

Printing Inks to Drive the Demand for Aluminum Paste 

The global printing ink market was valued at around USD 18 billion in 2020. Aluminum Paste is widely used in printing ink applications, and it’s one of the largest application markets for Aluminum Paste, with over 25% share in total volume consumption and revenue generation. Aluminum Paste has a very good substrate and intercoat adhesion properties suitable for printing on various substrates, including flexible packaging and plastics. Furthermore, as metallic printing inks are used in various applications, the demand for aluminum paste is also growing.

COVID 19 and Availability of Substitutes to Confine Market Growth

COVID-19 and its economic consequences affected market growth to a significant extent. As a result, the aluminum pastes industry witnessed a 17.31% decline in its revenue in 2020 compared to 2020. However, in the event of rapid vaccination programs undertaken by many countries, the economic activities and, in turn, demand for aluminum pastes is likely to restore. However, the availability of substitutes will be another major concern for aluminum paste manufacturers.

Huge Growth Opportunity in the Asia Pacific
