LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY, January 29, 2018 – Effective today, or as contracts allow, BASF will increase prices for pigments, dyes and preparations by up to 15% percent worldwide. The price increase will affect all market segments, predominantly the coatings, plastics and printing industries. Price adjustments are necessary due to higher raw material prices e.g. for pre-cursers of pigments and dyes, as well as increased costs for regulatory efforts like registration, environmental, health and safety.
