Global Agriculture Dyes and Pigments Market - 2021-2028
The global agriculture dyes and pigments market valued USD XX million in 2020 and is estimated to reach USD XX million by 2028, growing at a CAGR of XX%
Agriculture dyes and pigments are a group of color imparting materials that are intended for coloring various agricultural inputs and farm produce. These colorants are finding extensive used in seed-coating and coloring of pesticides, fertilizers and insecticides. Coloring is considered as the primary classification factor among these agri-inputs to avoid misuse that can lead to potential loss. For instance, seed companies are relying on seed coloration to distinguish various seed types based on their origin, grade and application. Seed coloration helps the farmers to identify seeds based on type and manufacturer. Beside these farm inputs, the use of dyes and pigments as pond colorants and field markers is rapidly growing globally. As some types of seeds are also used as fodder, proper pigmentation of the seeds is needed. Additionally, dyes and pigments are applied to the pesticides and fungicides for easy identification based on quality, brand, mode of application and areas of application. The pesticides and herbicides are colored by integrating chromatic pigment dispersions and dry powder. Agricultural dyes also distinguish between high and low-quality fertilizers. The agricultural dyes are normally used in diluted form and sprayed over the fertilizers to color them.
Increasing demand of fertilizers, pesticides and fungicides is driving the growth of agriculture dyes and pigments market
The growing consumption of fertilizers, fungicides and pesticides to increase the quality and quantity of food production to satisfy the ever-growing food demand globally is strengthening the market growth of agriculture dyes and pigments. For instance, annual fertilizer sales totaled approximately USD 180 billion in 2019, according to the International Fertilizer Association, which is three times more than crop protection chemical sales, three times more than seed sales and two times more than agricultural machinery sales. The UN's Food and Agriculture Organization's 'World Fertilizer Trends and Outlook to 2020' Report has assumed that consumption of the three main fertilizers - nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium will grow with CAGR of around 2% during 2021-2028. Industry experts are estimating the global production capacity of fertilizers to increase in all geographic regions. All these factors are driving the growth of agricultural dyes and pigments, as they are needed to color the fertilizers. Dyes are mainly used in fertilizers, pesticides and fungicides for better recognition of the product as many of these products are without color.
However, increasingly strict regulations on the application of synthetic chemicals and other artificial chemicals for crop and seed treatment, the growing popularity of organic and natural fertilizers and growing environmental awareness towards their environmental concerns are hindering the market growth.
Seed coating is the dominant application of dyes and pigments, driven by diversified use cases of seeds in farm and livestock
In terms of type, the global agriculture dyes and pigments market is divided into dyes and pigments. The dyes segment is further classified into acid dyes, natural dyes, basic dyes, synthetic dyes, vat dyes and others. The pigments segment is classified into organic and inorganic. Pigments are dominating the type segment, due to the development of new techniques and innovations. Dyes have a smaller share compared to pigments with use in crop protection.
On the basis of application, the global agriculture dyes and pigments market is divided into seed coating, fertilizers, crop protection, pond/lake color and others. Fertilizer application is dominating the market, due to its growing use as well as extensive application of fertilizers in crop production worldwide.
North America is the largest market in agriculture dyes and pigments market
North America is the leading market for agriculture dyes and pigments, with nearly XX% of the global sales revenue in 2020, due to heavy technological application in farming, high requirement of food production with less human resources and presence of leading market players. For example, fertilizer consumption for USA was around 128.8 kilograms per hectare. Even if USA fertilizer consumption varied significantly in recent years, it has gradually increased through the 1969 - 2018 time period. The Asia Pacific has also a considerable share due to the increase in population that has escalated the food demand and government initiatives on green revolution of farming. Still, growing environmental awareness has increased the popularity of organic pigments.
Increasing investment in R&D is making the market more competitive
The global agriculture dyes and pigments marketis fragmented with large number of players present in North America and Europe. The market competition is intense owing to increasing merger and acquisition activities as well as focus on introducing organic products. BASF SE, Clariant AG, DIC Corporation, Organic Dyes and Pigments., Pylam Products Company Inc., Shanghai Caison Color Material Chem. Co., Sirma Dyes and Chemicals Co., Milliken Chemicals, Chromatech Incorporated and Sensient Colors LLC are some of the leading companies operating in the market
On June 30, 2021, DIC Corporation has completed the acquisition of BASF's global pigments business, known as BASF Colors & Effects (BCE)
From January 29, 2018, BASF had increased prices for pigments, dyes and preparations by up to 15% percent worldwide
On June 14, 2021 - Clariant declared that it has reached definitive agreements for the divestment of its Pigments business to a consortium of Heubach Group ("Heubach") and SK Capital Partners ("SK Capital") at an Enterprise Value of CHF 805 million to CHF 855 million on a cash and debt free basis
COVID-19 Impact: Pandemic had a negative impact on global agriculture dyes and pigments market
The agriculture dyes and pigments market is negatively impacted by COVID-19 in 2020, due to the implementation of strict lockdown, which resulted in supply chain disruptions, lack of human resources and work stoppages. This has negatively impacted the demand of agriculture industries up to some extent. However, the conditions are predicted to recover in 2021, thus normalizing the growth trajectory of the dyes and pigments market during the forecast period
