Regional Analysis

Europe, the Middle East & Africa (MEA), Asia Pacific (APAC), and the Americas are regions covered in the organic pigments market report.

The APAC region is expected to exhibit the most agile growth rate in the market. Production of low-priced products from China and India can continue to contribute to regional organic pigments market growth over the forecast period. Increasing demand from construction, automotive, and packaging sectors is touted to drive regional market growth.

North America and Europe will follow APAC in terms of volume and valuation and will compete in terms of quality and price arbitration. The U.S. will be the biggest producer of organic pigments in North America with applications for esteemed clients in industries of plastics, coatings, and printing inks. But tariffs and anti-dumping laws designed to deter the procurement of pigments from China can revive the domestic industry. Europe, on the other hand, can be anticipated to perform remarkably due to being exporters of these chemicals from the U.K., Switzerland, and Germany to other developed countries.
