    Market Dynamics

    Introduction

    Paper Pigments can be referred to as insoluble substances that are added to fill the color or coating of the paper. The nature of the pigmentation is mainly intense and opaque. The right pigmentation determines the quality of the paper.

    Paper Pigments can be of various types such as clay, calcium carbonate, and titanium dioxide that can be used as coatings or even fillers in the papermaking process. It helps determine the ink suitability for an end-use or a printing process.

    Market Trends

    • Paper pigments are expected to be the fastest-growing market in papermaking due to their widespread use.
    • Pigments, inorganic particles added to paper as filler, color, and coating, are commonly used in papermaking. Common pigments include clay, titanium dioxide, and calcium carbonate, which are bonded to help adhere them to paper fabrics.
    • Pigment particles should have low water solubility, a smaller size, high whiteness, light fastness, and resistance to other chemicals used in paper manufacturing.
    • Uncoated paper, with its higher contrast and refined appearance, is less smooth and absorbs more ink than coated paper, making it suitable for printing business cards, envelopes, brochures, invitations, and other writing and printing materials.
    • The market for paper pigments is expected to be boosted by the increasing demand for uncoated paper from various sectors like educational institutions, businesses, and newsprint.
