A Dye is a colored substance and has an affinity to applied substrate. Dye is applied in an aqueous solution and sometimes mordant is required to improve the fastness of the dye on the fiber. Pigment on the other hand changes the color of reflected or transmitted light due to selective wavelength absorption. Pigments are insoluble in nature as compared to dyes and have no affinity towards substrate. Both dyes and pigments are colored due to absorption of wavelength of light. Pigments are unaffected both physically and chemically by the substrate in which they are incorporated. Due to the above said property of dyes and pigments they are used efficiently as trackers and markers in many liquids.
Tracking/ Marking has become an important phenomenon due to the increasing illicit transit of goods especially in the case of fuels. In agriculture pesticide dyes are used in diluted amounts to reduce the negative impact of pesticides by making it conspicuous the concentration of pesticides applied at each place, thus subsequently decreasing its ill effects on the human body. All these factors contribute to the growth of the industry. High quality liquid solvent dyes used as color additives in various end use markets such as oil & gas, cosmetics, detergents, plastics and many others. The major driving factors of dyes, pigments, markers and tracers are the rising demand from end user industries, along with growing demand for efficient fuel performance and rising preference towards environment-friendly products. The factors that are forbidding the growth of this market are price volatility, increased consumption capacity, and environmental regulations.
Dyes can be added in the form of powder or liquid. Though the powder ones are cheaper it has significant handling issues and health and safety issues. As it is advantageous to mix a liquid with a liquid instead of handling powdered dyes into a liquid, thus most applications prefer to use liquid dyes. Solvent dyes of high quality are used in various substances such as organic solvents, hydrocarbon fuels, waxes, lubricants, oil & greases and other. The solvent dye molecules are non-polar and do not undergo ionization and are insoluble in water. Solvent dyes form colloidal solution in solvents. Currently, only few refineries use powder dyes for coloring fuels with a low cost. A detailed qualitative analysis of the factors responsible for driving and restraining growth of the global dyes, pigments, markers and tracers market and future opportunities are provided in the report.
Based on the various applications offered, dyes can be utilized in numerous end user industries which include coloring fabrics, leather, plastic, paper, food items, and cosmetics and to produce inks and artistic colors. Pigments on the other hand are often derived from minerals, but they can also be made synthetically. Pigments are used in paints, inks, plastics, fabrics, cosmetics, and food, to name a few examples. They are often better than dyes at keeping their color for many centuries and for withstanding high heat, intense light, and exposure to weather or chemical agents.
As far as markers and tracers are concerned, fluorescent dyes are the most commonly used one due to the ease of detection they offers. Azo dyes and other form of tracer dyes are used when the detection has to remain inconspicuous and subtle, as in the case of detection during fuel trafficking.
The global Dyes, Pigments, Markers and Tracers market is estimated to reach $XXbn in 2021, growing CAGR of XX% from $XXbn in 2015. Due to increasing security concerns, strict emission norms set by the regulatory bodies, the demand for petroleum specific dyes and markers is estimated to increase to ensure quality of product. The growing demand for eco-friendly products, increasing awareness regarding soil pollution due to harmful chemicals is propelling the growth of this market in the agricultural sector. Furthermore, the overall market in this report is presented from the perspective of different geographic regions and the key countries for this industry. Americas had the major market share in 2015 due to continuous adoption and implementation of new technological changes, followed by Europe.
There are many key players operating in the global Dyes, Pigments, Markers and Tracers market. The A.S. Harrison & Co Pty Ltd., E.I. Dupont De Nemours & Co., BASF SE, Clariant International Ltd, Innospec and The Dow Chemical Company to name among a few others.
