Titanium Dioxide Market Outlook for 2022-2032

The global market for titanium dioxide is forecasted to be surge up at a significant pace with a CAGR of 5.35% throughout the forecast period (2022-2032).

As of 2022, the market is slated to be valued at US$ 19 Billion, up from US$ 18 Billion in 2021, representing an annual increase worth 5.5%. By 2032, the industry is poised to reach US$ 32 Billion.

Manufacturing and construction activities were delayed during the pandemic due to supply chain interruptions and manpower shortages, affecting demand from numerous application industries as  paints and coatings, plastics, cosmetics, and others. For example, L'Oréal, the world's largest cosmetics firm, lost EUR 1,735 million (US$ 2,024.52 million) in the first half of 2020 compared to the same period in 2019.

However, the situation is likely to improve within the predicted period. In the short term, rapidly rising demand from the paints and coatings industry is expected to be the primary driver of market growth. On the other hand, the toxicity of titanium dioxide is projected to stifle market expansion.

The market was dominated by the paints and coatings application category. With the ongoing expansion of construction activity, the category is expected to rise during the projection period.

The Asia-Pacific region dominated the global market. It is also predicted to rise at the fastest rate during the projection period, owing to increased demand in China and India.

Prominent Titanium Dioxide Industry Growth Drivers

Titanium Dioxide Adoption is Growing in a Variety of End-Use Industries

The fast spread of corona virus has harmed the titanium dioxide market. Many businesses and sectors have temporarily ceased operations as a result of the protracted lockdown and fast spreading corona virus around the world. There has been a significant influence on the industrial sector, touching practically all industries worldwide.

Manufacturers in the titanium dioxide market are working hard to recover from the pandemic's losses.

The rising demand for titanium dioxide from diverse end-use sectors such as paints and coatings, paper, and plastics, among others, is offering value-added possibilities for producers. Titanium dioxide is a colorless, odorless absorbent. It is commonly used as a pigment to provide whiteness and opacity.

It's also employed as a bleaching agent in porcelain enamels since it's brilliant, durable, and acid-resistant. Despite the corona virus pandemic, the significant presence of manufacturers operating in the global titanium dioxide market is driving to the market.

Furthermore, surge in the demand for lightweight vehicles in the automobile industry is a critical factor escalating market growth, as is rise in the per capita consumption of pigments, rise in the usage of titanium dioxide in construction, rise in the usage of titanium dioxide by its end-users, rise in the paints & coatings industry worldwide, and rise in self-cleaning technologies in various industries, among other factors driving the titanium dioxide market.

Moreover, the increase in modernization and technical developments in manufacturing processes, as well as the increase in market research and development efforts, will generate new possibilities for the titanium dioxide market throughout the projection period.
