HC Chemical Network News: The world’s organic pigment products are divided into three types: high performance pigments, phthalocyanine pigments and azo pigments classic. Organic pigments are mainly used in plastics industry, coatings industry and ink industry , but also in other industries with small number.


The consumption of global publications ink organic pigment decreased, but grow in packaging ink with pigment year by year.


In recent years, due to the rise of the Internet, the use of global publications with organic pigments show a downward trend, but the use of high-performance pigments and packaging ink pigments are growing year by year. Global publications ink organic pigment consumption decreased, packaging ink with pigment growth year by year

In recent years, due to the rise of the Internet, global publications with organic pigments show a downward trend, but high-performance pigments and packaging ink pigments are growing year by year. The rise of global manufacturing activities has led to the development of the global packaging and printing market. Global packaging and printing market is expected to develop from the current annual output value of 12.02 billion US dollars to 1927.5 billion US dollars in 2026, and the annual compound growth rate reaches of 4.9%. Asia-Pacific region, such as China and India and other emerging economies, is driving the development of packaging and printing market.For this, it also actively promotes the relevant areas of the rapid growth of printing ink, driving the growth demand for organic pigments market.

The decline in the publication of the ink pigment market is already an indisputable fact, but not all of the world’s publications are declining in the ink market, such as India. As  Internet in India has not yet reached a large area, and not as fast as the rapid development of electronic media as the country, which also makes India still retains a huge publication of the ink pigment market.It leads to India’s publications ink pigment market not only did not decline, but continue to grow.


Ink is still the largest market for organic pigments, azo pigments accounted for more than one-half sales

From the global organic pigment market share to distinguish, the plastics industry accounted for 28%, paint industry accounted for 31%, ink industry accounted for 39%, other industries accounted for 2%.


According to sales volume, which accounted for 15% of the plastics industry, paint industry accounted for 17%, ink industry accounted for 65%, other industries accounted for 3% of the global market sales.

From the data point of view, sales of ink pigments is up to 65% of the global market, but its sales accounted for only 39% of the global market. From this we can see that the sale price of organic pigments for ink is lower than that of other industries. While the sale price of organic pigments for paints and plastics is higher than the ink industry. Paint with organic pigment market sales accounted for 17% of the global market, its sales accounted for 31% of the global market; sales of plastic organic pigments accounted for 15% of the global market, sales accounted for 28% of the world.


According to statistics,the total sales of the current world organic pigment market  is about 320,000 tons / year, of which high-performance pigments accounted for 11%, about 35,000 tons. Major producers / producers State: BASF / Ciba, Clariant & DIC / SUN-65%, China -25%, other -10%; phthalocyanine pigments 28%, about 9,000 tons, major producers / producers: India, Germany and the United States; classic azo pigments accounted for 61%, about 195,000 tons. Major producers are India, China, Germany and the United States.

The top 15 enterprises of China organic pigments accounted for production capacity


From the figure we can see that the national organic paint in the top 15 production capacity is  270,000 tons in 2010, 283,000 tons in 2011,  304,000 tons in 2012,  32 million tons in 2013, 34 million tons in 2014, 37 million tons in 2015,  345,000 tons in 2016. The average production capacity of enterprises is maintained at 1.8-2.5 million tons / home. From the production capacity of the point of view, as of 2016, the top 15 enterprises have accounted for 70.71% of China’s organic pigment production capacity,  achieveing the highest value in 2010, industry concentration is in the rise.

 Analysis of China ‘s Organic Pigment Export


According to customs statistics, the national organic pigment export is 12.2 million tons in 2014, 124,000 tons in 2015, 12.2 million tons in 2016. With the development of high-performance pigments, the world’s pigment market demand changes, China’s export share of the pigment is also gradually increased. It can be seen that the development trend of organic pigment market from the publication of ink-based pigments, to the development of high-performance pigments, packaging ink pigment.


China’s pigment market enters the transformation and upgrading period

Ink is the main use of organic pigments, with the rapid development of China’s electronic information industry, after 2015 China’s paper media publishing industry shrinking dramatically, and before 2015, the publication of ink-based pigments is to maintain sustained growth trend. The shrinking of the publishing market has led directly to a decline in market demand for printing pigments.

Although the production of printing ink pigment production decline, but in recent years, by the influence of the development of packaging ink market, paint pigments, inkjet paint and other market, the development trend of the pigment market has changed, China’s organic pigment market prospects are still good.

Over the past two years,the enhancing of China’s environmental protection and supervision efforts  and the development of new applications also  promote the organic pigment industry to enter the transformation and upgrading period, the overall technical level is rising. But we still have a certain distance from the international level, the domestic organic pigment enterprises still need to increase  high-performance pigment investment  in technology research and development and application , increase environmental research and development efforts and do an enterprise with social responsibility and social action. Only playing a capital advantage and enhancing the service market capacity can we  lead the healthy development of China’s pigment industry and achieve a real upgrade.

At the same time, the domestic organic pigment enterprises should also focus on dislocation development, reducing the production of homogeneous products , determining the strategic positioning of products and achieving healthy competition. Enterprises can also use a number of marketing tools to operate the product sales. It is also an upgrade of the sales model.
