“Growing Chemical Industry Set to Drive the Nano-TiO2 Market”

Since the past half-decade, TiO2 has captured the attention of many application-based industries. It has also found immense applications in the chemical industry, especially as a photo-catalyst in water treatment and air deodorizers. It is also used as an effective catalyst in formulating self-cleaning construction materials and paints. Moreover, it is used as a heat stabilizer for silicone vulcanizate.

Increased requisite of nano-Tio2 is also observed in the cathode coating of Li-Ion batteries, which helps increase the performance and life of the battery. Furthermore, nano-TiO2 is an integral part of the SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) catalyst.

Utilization of nano-TiO2 provides enhanced surface area for optimum reaction and reduces the cost of catalyst reactivation in the long run. Thus, reducing the cost of operating the SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) is set to give thrust to the nano-TiO2 market.

The growing chemical industry and exploring applications of nano-TiO2 in the industry are set to boost the nano-TiO2 market. Increased production of Titanium in China portrays an image of growing demand for nano-TiO2 across the domains.

“Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitors (MLCCs) Provide Thrust to the TiO2 market”

Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitors or MLCCs are surface-mounted devices used in a wide range of capacitance. TiO2 is an integral compound used in producing MLCCs. MLCCs are facing a shortage in the market in recent times owing to the increase in demand from the smartphones, portable computing, and automotive industries.

The count of MLCCs installed in mobile phones increased from 500 to 1000 in the past half-decade. Electric vehicles are also adding to the shortage of MLCCs in the market. These shortages portray an image of the growing demand for nano-TiO2 from the electrical and electronics industry.

Moreover, the increased nano-TiO2 cost is another factor, which is fading the existence of the low-tier MLCC manufacturers. The increase in demand for MLCCs is set to increase further in the forecast period and the supportive trade winds are also attracting new nano-TiO2 entrants dealing with the demand from MLCCs. Therefore, a bunch of economic factors, which portray growing demand for MLCCs, are set to provide thrust to the TiO2 market.

“New Entrants in the Nano-TiO2 Market Face Challenges Due to High Production Cost”

The rising production cost owing to the rise in TiO2 prices post the U.S. and China trade war, is set to provide a backlash for newcomers in the nano-TiO2 market. High product costs provide a barrier for new entrants in the market.

The rising prices of TiO2 on the other hand allow newcomers to sustain the price-taking market of TiO2. Moreover, newcomers’ inexperience in the nano-TiO2 market provides it to be unattractive.

Demand contraction of TiO2 across the domains has provided a negative offset to players planning to enter the market. Entering the contract supply of TiO2 to major industries and gaining confidence in the strong market with soft prices could incur losses in the short run. Moreover, maintaining the supply ability of TiO2 amidst the rising prices of raw materials could negatively affect the nano-TiO2 stakeholders.
