The Asia Pacific paper pigments market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period

Asia Pacific (APAC) is expected to grow at the highest CAGR in the paper pigments market during the forecast period. Due to the low proliferation of technology and lower impact of environmental regulations, there is a sustained increase in the demand for paper in the APAC countries despite reduction in the use of writing paper due to the increasing adoption of electronic devices.
