Most parts of the paint pigments market are growing at between 2 % and 4 % per annum. IRL’s recently published study, entitled "Pigments and Fillers in the European Coatings Industry", provides an overview of the market sizes and trends which govern the demand for all of the key types of pigments and fillers within the European paint and coatings sector. Pigment consumption by the European paint and coatings industry was rated at 1,035,000 tonnes in 2009, with titanium dioxide use accounting for just over 762,000 tonnes (approximately 73 %). Carbon black is the second-largest single pigment type, with consumption at 77,500 tonnes, which is just slightly less than the combined use of other inorganic, organic and special effect pigments. Functional pigments represent a market of 116,000 tonnes. Inorganic pigments will in general continue to be the preferred types where heat, light and chemical resistance is required. Organic pigments represent an area of modest growth.
