Titanium Dioxide (Tio2) or Titania is a naturally occurring oxide of titanium, which is sourced from oxide minerals such as ilmenite, rutile and anatase. The versatility of Titanium Dioxide is because of the various forms and sizes. They are used in the micro scale pigment form or as nanoparticles. The Nanoparticle Titanium Dioxide is industrialized as per the end-use application and has numerous physical properties. Nanoparticle Titanium Dioxide is basically used in textile,cosmetics, coatings and paints.
The global nanoparticle titanium dioxide industry is a niche market and the demand for these materials is projected to gain a strong momentum in the forecast period. The demand mainly rises due to industries such as paints and pigments, plastics, printing inks, catalysts, paper, cosmetics, and glass. The demand for nanoparticle titanium dioxide is anticipated to be more from Asia Pacific. A surge in the usage of cosmetics is also one of the drivers of the global Tio2 market. The growing use of plastic for the manufacturing of toys and various other objects will help drive the demand for nanoparticle titanium dioxide.The key reasons boosting the growth of the nanoparticle titanium dioxide (Tio2) market includes higher demand for polycarbonates as a replacement for glass and metals in the automotive industry for light-weight vehicles and growing demand from paints and coatings industry due to rising construction activities across the globe. Theprocess improvement is one of the few growth opportunity drivers for this market.However, factors such as stringent regulatory framework may hamper the growth of the Nanoparticle Titanium Dioxide (Tio2) market. The trend of light-weight vehicles is predictable to profit the global nanoparticle titanium dioxide market as the demand for polycarbonate is expected to rising in place of glass or metal. Titanium dioxide is expansively used to coat polycarbonate and thus, will enhance the market’s growth in the forecast period. However, the global Tio2 industry is expected to be restrained by stringent regulations by various regulatory bodies with regards to carcinogenic properties. This is expected to hamper the growth of the market.The Chinese market is providing a better platform for Nanoparticle TiO2. Governments are providing strong support for research and development in the nanotechnology field in developing countries. This is leading to technological improvements in the Nanoparticle titanium dioxide market.
