'Our trend research shows the continued importance of the achromatic color space, dominated by white, black, and gray.
Apart from these ten hue groups, three achromatic colors (white, black and middle gray) were also used.
About 80% of the responses to the principle hues, including red, yellow, green, blue, and purple were positive, compared with only 29.2% for the achromatic colors, including white, gray, and black (see Table 3).
For the achromatic colors, white attained a large number of positive responses (61.2%), compared with only 19.4% and 7.1% positive responses for black and gray, respectively.
In addition, a continued strong interest in achromatic colors drives the use of innovative effect pigments that can add a smoother appearance or strong dimensional aspects.
