Pigment Dispersions Market Report Scope & Overview:

The Pigment Dispersions Market Size was valued at USD 37 billion in 2022, and is expected to reach USD 50.64 billion by 2030, and grow at a CAGR of 4.0% over the forecast period 2023-2030.

Pigment dispersion is when solid particles that don't dissolve in water or an organic solvent are mixed together. Pigment Dispersion particles have a big impact on how lacquers, paints, and printing inks turn out in the end. The main jobs of these dispersions are to protect against chemical attacks, fading, weather, and high temperatures. The main places where it is used are in the car, chemical, and building industries.

According to our analysis, some of the most important market factors and trends in the Global Pigment Dispersion Market are the rapid increase in construction activities, the rising demand for protective paints in the automotive industry, and UV protection paints for aircrafts. A lot of people are buying more wood finish paints, which is expected to drive up the demand for pigment dispersion over the assessment period. Over the next ten years, the Global Construction Market is expected to grow faster than the world's GDP, as Asian economies continue to industrialise and the U.S. gets back on its feet after the global financial crisis. The growth of the market is also expected to be fueled by mergers and acquisitions between automakers and suppliers, as well as by more cars being made and sold. During the assessment period, from 2020 to 2030, the growth of the market is expected to be driven by rapid urbanisation and rising disposable income in emerging economies. But strict rules put in place by different government agencies have limited the use of toxic organic chemicals used to make pigment dispersion. This is likely to slow the growth of the market.

Market Dynamics:


  • The packaging business is getting bigger.

  • Paint and coating sales are on the rise.

  • Changes in how people want coloured packaging


  • High prices and poor ability to spread


  • Research and development activities are getting more money.

  • Green technology is becoming more popular, and environmental laws are getting stricter.


  • There are strict rules about how pigments can be made.

Impact of COVID-19:

COVID-19 has put the industrial and manufacturing sectors around the world into a new way of working that nobody knows about. Government rules about how many people can be in one place at once have had a big effect on the sectors. For example, the virus had a big effect on the construction business. During the lockdown, factories and production lines in the auto, electronics, and aerospace industries were temporarily shut down. China is the main source of raw materials for most industries. Because of this, disruptions in the supply chain have also had a big effect on industrial output. Because of the pandemic, the world economy had shrunk. As long as the pandemic lasts, COVID-19 will keep having an effect on all industries. Losses in investments, a lack of cash, a lack of workers, problems in the supply chain, and the general uncertainty of the global economy all slow down the growth of both the industrial and construction sectors. Many countries, like India, China, and the US, have opened their economies, and manufacturing has started up again, but there aren't as many workers or materials as before. As most of the economies have opened, industrial output is likely to go up again. COVID-19 has also hurt the sales volume of pigment dispersions in 2020 for the companies that make them. Major market players are reducing the risk by putting more emphasis on local management and looking for untapped market opportunities.

14. Conclusion

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
