Iron Oxide Pigments Market: An overview
Iron oxide pigments have been extensively used as a coloring agent since ancient times when humans used to paint on cave walls. Iron oxide pigments are a comparatively low-cost product which can resist color change due to constant exposure to sun rays. They possess good chemical resistance and are stable under normal ambient conditions. Prominent use of iron oxide pigments lies in paints & coatings and in construction materials such as in mortar, concrete products, roofing tiles and paving stones.
Further, in plastic industries, iron oxide pigments are used as colorant for a variety of plastic products, such as vinyl sidings, food packaging, auto parts, home computers, toys and bottles. Continued demand from these end use products has drafted growth in iron oxide pigments market for their coloring purpose. As per Fact.MR estimates, global pigments market has surpassed US$ 20 Bn mark in 2020, thus future demand for its subtype including iron oxide pigments market will also be witnessing steady growth in the forecast period.
Iron Oxide Pigments Market: Dynamics
Demand growth in iron oxide pigments market is mainly facilitated with constant need of coloring agent in various end use industry. Also being comparatively inexpensive than some of other coloring materials, its use and demand have been highly beneficiated.
However, use of iron oxide pigments at a larger extent on end use products are considered as an irritant to human safety. Furthermore, inhalation of iron oxides could cause unspecific lung inflammation. Thus, manufacturers of iron oxide pigments have to bear and mitigate all problems regarding hazards caused by iron oxide pigments.
