Thermochromic Pigment Market Overview
Thermochromic Pigment Market is expected to reach USD 2,500 million with a healthy CAGR of 5.1% by the end of 2030.
Thermochromic pigments are materials which change color with change in temperature. These pigments are temperature-sensitive which use liquid crystal technology which leads to change in the color of liquid crystals. These pigments are widely used in traffic signs, printing inks, fire-fighting equipment, emergency signs, novelty decorations, path marking, instruments and controls.
By product, the global Thermochromic Pigment Market has been classified into liquid crystal material, leuco dyes, and inorganic materials. The liquid crystal material segment accounted for the largest market share in 2022 and is expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecast period owing to its consumption in precision applications as their responses can be engineered at accurate temperatures. They are widely used in electronics and in mood rings.
Based on pigment type, the global thermochromic pigment market has been segmented into reversible thermochromic pigments and irreversible thermochromic pigments. The reversible thermochromic pigments accounted for the largest market share in 2022 in terms of value, owing to its reversible color changing property and find applications in decorative and aesthetic products. The irreversible thermochromic pigments segment is expected to be the largest in 2022 in terms of volume, due to its low cost. It can be used only once due to its irreversible nature and is used in detecting the temperature of engine components, furnaces, house appliances, and high-temperature ovens.
food & beverages, paints & coatings, printing ink, paper, textile, cosmetics, plastic & polymers, and others. The printing ink segment held the largest market share in 2022 and is expected to grow at a healthy CAGR during the review period due to its surging demand in the smart packaging industry. Printing inks equipped with thermochromic pigments are applied on beverage packaging which changes color with cooling.
