Market Overview

Iron Oxide Pigments comprises iron and oxides and can be produced from both natural and synthetic sources. Naturally, Iron Oxide Pigments are derived from hematite (red iron oxide mineral), limonites (yellow or brown minerals) such as ochers, siennas & umbers, and magnetite (black iron oxide). Synthetic Iron Oxide Pigments are produced from basic chemicals by three processing methods which includes precipitation of iron salts, thermal decomposition of iron salts, and reduction of organic compounds by iron.  The product finds use in numerous applications including construction, paints & coatings, plastics, paper, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics among others.
