LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY: BASF SE said that it 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.
