Titanium dioxide (TiO2), also known as titania, refers to a white and opaque naturally occurring mineral that exists in several crystalline forms. It is an odorless, absorbent, chemically inert, and semiconducting material. It is widely used as a flocculent, dispersing, whitening, bleaching, and opacifying agent to impart whiteness, opacity, brightness, hardness and acid resistance to various products. It is also utilized in cosmetics, such as skin care products, powders and sunscreen lotions, to protect the skin from ultraviolet (UV) radiation due to its ability to absorb UV light. As a result, titanium dioxide finds extensive applications across numerous industries, including paints and coatings, cosmetics and personal care, paper and pulp, inks, food, and plastics.
The global titanium dioxide market is primarily driven by the escalating demand for cosmetics and personal care products due to the growing awareness regarding personal hygiene and appearance. Additionally, with the rising residential and commercial construction activities, there has been a significant rise in the demand for paints and coatings. In line with this, the widespread product adoption in automotive coatings and the surging need for lightweight vehicles for better fuel efficiency has augmented the demand for titanium dioxide. Furthermore, the emerging applications of titanium dioxide nanoparticles as a photoactive material in coatings of photovoltaic (PV) cells to enhance the performance of dye-based cells have accelerated the product adoption rate. Other factors, including the increasing PV installations, rising production of bioplastics, shifting focus toward clean energy, surging adoption of architectural and decorative coatings and ongoing infrastructural development, are also anticipated to propel the market growth.
