Industry Outlook

Aluminum pigment market is expected to reach US$ 735.7 Mn by 2026 with 6.2% CAGR during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. In 2017, Asia Pacific led the aluminum pigment market and North America is estimated to be the fastest growing region between 2018 and 2026.

Aluminum pigment is basically a pearlescent pigment that is based on aluminum oxide. Pigments are mainly compounds that impart various colors to substrates. It also imparts silver color with metallic effects. Additionally, pigments also impart glossy, lustrous and shiny effects. These aims to improve opacity, chemical and weather resistance, fastness and durability of plastics, printing inks and paints and coatings. These are produced from aluminum paste, powder and flakes and are produced through wet-milling process. Aluminum pigment also changes the color of reflected light due to selective wavelength absorption. The sparkle effect of it is basically determined by quantity of pigment added. They are used in variety of applications that includes paints and coatings, cosmetics and plastics among others.

Growing demand from personal care industry owing to the rising demand for cosmetic products is one of the important factor that is expected to drive the global aluminum pigment market. Aluminum pigment impart metallic luster and color to various cosmetic products that includes nail polishes and lipsticks among others. It is also used as substrate on which different colors can be precipitated. These pigments also aim to reduce the bleeding effects in lipsticks and also inhibits the flow of sweat. Hence, with the increase in demand for cosmetic products, the global market for aluminum pigment is expected to grow at a steady rate during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026.Aluminum pigments also         finds application in printing decorative and eye catching labels in the food and beverages industry. Hence growing demand from food and beverages industry is also expected to propel the market demand for aluminum pigment. The increase in construction business owing to the increase in residential and non-residential infrastructure projects is also expected to bolster the market growth. Increasing demand from automobile and paints and coatings are other primary factors expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026.

However, aluminum pigment applications in solvent medium leads to serious impact on environment. The reason being solvent borne aluminum coatings emit volatile organic compounds which gets converted to carbondioxide with the help of oxidizing sunlight effect. Volatile organic compounds also react with air pollutants to produce ozone. Both ozone and carbondioxide are air pollutants. In addition, prolonged exposure to the photochemical reactions of volatile organic compounds leads to toxicity in human health and also causes health problems. Rising awareness among consumers for environment safety followed by increasing demand of natural paints and coatings are expected to hamper the market growth of aluminum pigment during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026.

"Non-leafing Segment Propelling the Growth of Aluminum Pigment Market"

Non-leafing grades are resistant to corrosion and abrasion and also aims to impart long lasting effect on coated surface. Owing to these properties, it mainly finds increasing application in the automobile paints. Hence with the growing automobile industry worldwide, the demand for non-leafing segment is expected to rise during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026.Increasing application in food packaging is also expected to boost the demand for this segment. Silberline Manufacturing Co. Inc., based in the U.S, deals with various non leafing industrial coatings that includes standard non-leafing, sparkle silver and silbercote. Standard non leafing finds application where typical metallic appearance is important. The metallic appearance produced by these grades range from muted to standard silver appearance. Sparkle silver pigments aims to enhance the metallic silver color and sparkle. Silbercote aluminum pigments are applied to architectural extrusions, component housings and certain coil coating applications. Leafing grades is also expected to grow at a rapid pace owing to its wide application in cosmetic and printing inks that basically offer lustrous effect on surface thereby increasing the brightness.
