Azo Pigments are organic chemicals that may contain nitrogen group. They have a chemical structure similar to azo dyes and are mostly insoluble in water. A new report on the global Azo Pigments Market, published by Market Research Future (MRFR), predicts that this market can see growth between 2022 and 2030. In terms of money value, the market can be worth USD 1.65 Bn by the end of the forecast period.

The most prominent market driver for the global azo pigments market growth is a set of stringent government regulations with regards to the use of organic pigments in food materials. The conventional metal-based pigments that consist of cadmium, lead, and other heavy metals are being replaced by innovative products. This can benefit the food industry to use the azo pigments in indirect food applications. Other market drivers for the global azo pigments market growth include increasing manufacturing of colored printing inks for industrial usage and increasing budget on the research & development (R&D). However, the market growth can face hurdles due to the high price of the product over inorganic pigments.
