Global Iron Oxide Pigment Market is estimated to grow considerably in the forecast period owing to the increase in demand from paint, plastic, and construction sectors. Iron Oxide Pigments (IOP) are the largely available colored inorganic pigments, which imply several applications. They are cost effective, non-toxic materials comprising oxyhydroxides and iron oxides. When iron oxides are granulated, they offer several benefits like color stability, resistance against weather, durability, compatibility with cement, and superior resistance to UV radiation.

Iron oxide pigment market is driven by escalating demand from end user segments like cosmetics. Growing infrastructural activities worldwide in emerging economies are also stimulating the demand for iron oxide pigments, thereby encouraging the market growth of iron oxide pigment. Moreover, increasing drilling activities and growing demand from floating production storage and offshore rigs and offloading are predicted to accelerate the demand for iron oxide pigments. These pigments are widely used in lubricants and as catalysts in petroleum sector.

However, unstable exchange rates and prices of raw materials are projected to hamper iron oxide pigment industry. Also, significant cost of quality maintenance and development is challenging the market growth. The market is witnessing rising issues concerning wood landfills. Governments from different parts of the world are imposing stringent policies to reduce waste materials and prevent wood landfills. Hence, owing to the rise in wood recovery, wood coatings is predicted to increase.

Iron oxide pigments market is categorized on the basis of type, color, end user, and geography. On the basis type, the market is divided into synthetic and natural. Synthetic segment is expected to hold a larger market share of iron oxide pigment owing to its preference due to properties like purity level and exceptional quality. Based on color, iron oxide pigment industry is divided into yellow, red, black, and others. Red color followed by black and yellow are in demand since they are used in combination for the production of the other colors.

In terms of end user, iron oxide pigment market is bifurcated into plastics, paper, coating, construction, textile, and others. Costing segment is anticipated to lead the market of iron oxide pigment in the near future owing to extensive applications of iron oxide in industrial coating, automotive coating, wood coating, protective coating, interior & exterior coatings and others.

Geographically, iron oxide pigments industry is segmented as North America Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific is expected to register significant growth in the coming years owing to rise in demand from coating & construction sectors, product modernizations and new research & development projects in the region.
