The Asia Pacific is the leading market in the global titanium dioxide market, accounting for over two-fifth of the total industry share. The other significant markets for the product are Europe and North America. In 2018, the global demand for the product was nearly 4.50 million metric tons. The North America market, with a growth rate of 2.5%, is emerging as a significant market for the substance. The region is the net exporter of the product; however, it also imports a significant volume of low-quality titanium dioxide from the Asia Pacific. On the other hand, Asia Pacific imports high-quality material from the U.S. and Europe to fulfill the increasing demand for the product in the region.
The product is most widely used as pigments, that find application in diverse products like paints, paper, plastics, and printing inks, among others. It has been estimated that the product accounts for nearly two-thirds of the pigments produced globally, and further, oxide-based pigments stand at a value of almost USD 13.2 billion. In 2017, the paints and coatings segment accounted for more than 60% of the global demand for the product, which is further estimated to grow at a healthy pace during the forecast period, thus, aiding the industry growth.
Properties and Applications
Titanium dioxide, a white inorganic compound, is generally derived from minerals like ilmenite, rutile, and anatase. Due to its luminous, non-toxic, and non-reactive properties, it finds application in a wide range of products, particularly as a vivid colourant to increase the whiteness and brightness of various substances. It finds application in diverse sectors, which are as follows:
Paints and coatings remains the largest application sector for the product, whereas its demand in the plastic industry is increasing steadily due to the excellent refractive qualities of the product.
The EMR report also analyses the regional markets for the product, which are North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.
The global titanium dioxide market is being driven by the robust growth of the paints and coatings sector, especially in the emerging economies. Further, the properties of the substance make it a favourable choice for use as a pigment, which aids the industry growth. It is also known as ‘the perfect white’ owing to its powerful, whitening qualities, which make it a popular choice for use as a pigment. The increasing urbanisation and rise in per capita income, particularly in the developing economies, is aiding the global titanium dioxide market. This directly impacts the automobile and construction sectors, which, in turn, will drive the demand for the product. The rising disposable incomes is resulting in the increase of infrastructure activities, which is further adding to the higher demand for the paints and coatings variants, which is the largest application sector for the substance, thus, propelling the industry forward.
Moreover, the increased demand for the product from the plastic and packaging industry is providing further impetus to the industry. The refractive properties of the product allow it to absorb or scatter UV rays, thus, making it favourable for use in Masterbatches, flexible packaging, and food-grade packaging, thus, aiding the industry growth. Also, these properties have increased the demand for the product in the cosmetics sector, to manufacture products like sunscreen lotion, thus, providing the scope for a healthy growth during the forecast period.
