Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst grade, Rutile grade category is to witness higher CAGR during the forecast period”

Based on grade, the market is segmented into rutile and anatase. The rutile grade category is to witness higher CAGR during the forecast period owing to the advanced characteristics compared to anatase titanium dioxide. As rutile grade possesses better hiding strength and wearability and has various applications such as advanced outside coatings, latex coatings, superior paper coatings, etc. These grades may be synthetic with the use of both chloride and sulfate processes. In addition, rutile grade is used as a service in paint applications for generating white color in plastics and prevents color fading in the paper which is further escalating the growth in the market.

“Amongst process, sulfate to hold a significant share in the market in 2020”

On the basis of process, the market is categorized into sulfate and chloride. Among these, sulfate to hold a significant share of the market in 2020. This is mainly due to the technique being simpler, relatively easy of handling, and cost-green in generating titanium oxide. The growing demand from the automobile and construction industry has brought about excessive consumption of titanium oxide for packages in paints & coatings. Moreover, the development of efficient production equipment and the use of low-grade, environmentally friendly raw materials. Thus, sulfate demand is increasing in the market.

“Amongst application, the paints & coatings category is to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period”

Based on application, the titanium dioxide market has been classified into paints & coatings, plastics, paper & pulp, cosmetics, and others. The paints & coatings category is to witness the highest adoption of titanium dioxide during the forecast period. This is because paints & coatings provide excellent opacity, high whiteness, durability, and color retention that are used in industries such as architectural coatings, automotive OEM coatings, general industrial finishes, powder coatings, waterborne paints, protective coatings, wood finishes, and other coatings. Thus, the positive impact of using paints & coatings is fueling its demand in the market.

“APAC to hold a significant share in the market”

In 2020, APAC is anticipated to grow at a substantial CAGR during the forecast period. This is mainly due to rising investments in infrastructure development projects, expanding urbanization, rising standards of living, and the thriving automotive sector, which are the main drivers of the region’s overall growth. In addition, the demand for titanium dioxide from end-user sectors such as the automotive, residential construction, plastic, cosmetics, paints & coatings, and paper industries is also accelerating the market’s expansion in the area. The production of titanium dioxide is done by many players in the market by setting up manufacturing plants across the globe. For instance, Lomon Billions Group, the world’s third-largest producer of titanium dioxide, has manufacturing facilities in China. The business can produce more than 1.01 million tonnes of titanium dioxide annually.
