The iron oxide pigments market was valued at USD 1.78 Billion in 2015, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.3% from 2016 to 2021. The base year used for study is 2015 and the forecast period is from 2016 to 2021. This report provides a detailed analysis of the iron oxide pigments market based on type, color, end user, and region. Growth in the construction sector and increase in the number of infrastructure projects result in higher consumption of iron oxide pigments.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the iron oxide pigments market began with capturing data on revenues of key market players through secondary research. The market player’s offerings were also taken into consideration to determine the market segmentation. The bottom-up procedure was employed to arrive at the overall market size of the global iron oxide pigments market from the revenue of key market players. After arriving at the overall market size, the total market was split into several segments and subsegments which were then verified through primary research, by conducting extensive interviews with key people such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives. This data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all the segments and subsegments. The figure below shows breakdown of primaries on the basis of company type, designation, and region conducted during the research study.

The global iron oxide market was valued at USD 1.78 Billion in 2015 and is projected to reach USD 2.30 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 4.3% during the forecast period, 2016 to 2021. Increasing usage of iron oxide pigments as a mainstream product in various industries, such as construction, coatings, plastics, and paper is driving the growth of the global iron oxide pigment market.

The most widely used colors of the iron oxide pigments include red, yellow, black, and other blended colors. These pigments offer superior tinting strength, purity, and color consistency, and are widely used for different applications. Red iron oxide pigments are used in the manufacturing of paints, gold polish, mosaic tiles, plastics, floorings, and papers. Wide availability of red iron oxide pigments, along with growing demand for these pigments from various end users is expected to drive the consumption of the red iron oxide pigments, globally.

Based on their processing and manufacturing method, the iron oxide pigments are classified in two types, namely, synthetic iron oxide pigments and natural iron oxide pigments. Synthetic iron oxide pigments are manufactured through different chemical processes, such as calcination, precipitation, and Penniman and Laux processes. Natural iron oxide pigments are extracted from mineral ores. Synthetic iron oxide pigments are preferred over natural iron oxide pigments, owing to high purity and tinting strength offered by them.

The construction industry is one of the major end users of iron oxide pigments, globally. Iron oxide pigments are used in coloring of concretes, designer tiles, paving blocks, stamped concretes, and chequered tiles, among others. Iron oxide pigments offer excellent compatibility with cement and decorative concrete products and thus, are widely used in construction activities. The coatings segment of the global iron oxide pigments market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Increasing demand of iron oxide pigments for various applications, such as architectural coatings, industrial coatings, protective coatings, coatings for packaging, wood coatings, oil coatings, and powder coatings is expected to lead towards the growth of the coatings segment of the global iron oxide pigments market.

Iron Oxide Pigments Market

The Asia-Pacific region accounted for the largest share of the global iron oxide pigments market in 2015. The Asia-Pacific iron oxide pigments market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Increasing usage of iron oxide pigments in the construction and coatings industries in various countries, such as China, Japan, and India is driving the growth of Asia-Pacific iron oxide pigments market.

Volatility in the prices of raw materials and fluctuations in the exchange rates are the factors likely to impact the growth of the global iron oxide pigments market during the forecast period. Stringent environmental regulations related to the manufacturing of synthetic iron oxide pigments also act as restraint for the global iron oxide pigments market.

Lanxess AG (Germany) is a leading player in the global iron oxide pigments market. The company is focusing on organic growth strategies to meet the growing demand for iron oxide pigments from different industries. Lanxess has adopted the strategy of new product launches to strengthen its position in the global iron oxide pigments market. Besides, the company is also expanding its manufacturing capabilities to produce iron oxide pigments. The addition of mixing and milling plant to its pigment plant in Ningbo, China is one such initiative taken by the company to expand its presence in the Asia-Pacific region. The company has also realized its responsibility towards environment, and as such, is engaged in the development of cost-effective and environment-friendly manufacturing processes.
