The Dye and Pigment Manufacturing industry is a very small component of the UK chemical sector. Over the years, it has gradually declined in global and domestic importance, mostly due to the demise of the British textile industries. Because dyes and pigments are used in the textile industry, ink manufacturing and automotive industries, the Dye and Pigment Manufacturing industry's fortunes have been inextricably tied to the UK manufacturing sector. International developments are also important to the industry's performance, on account of the level of international trade within the industry.
Companies in this industry manufacture dyes and pigments both in basic forms and as concentrates. The industry also includes firms that make products used as fluorescent brightening agents or to add luminescence.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
