Consumption Analysis of Titanium Dioxide Nanoparticles from 2016 to 2020 Vs Demand Outlook for 2021 to 2031

As per Fact.MR – a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the global titanium dioxide nanoparticles market was valued at US$ 17 Bn in 2020, and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 6% across the forecast period of 2021 to 2031.

The global nanoparticle titanium dioxide industry is a niche market and demand for these materials is expected to gain strong momentum over the coming years. Demand will especially arise from industries such as plastics, paints and pigments, printing inks, catalysts, paper, cosmetics, and glass. Demand for nanoparticle titanium dioxide is estimated to be more from Asia Pacific.

Surge in the use of cosmetics is one of the drivers of the global market. Growing use of plastic for the manufacturing of toys and various other objects will help drive demand for nanoparticle titanium dioxide. The trend of lightweight vehicles is also expected to benefit the market as demand for polycarbonate is expected to increase in place of glass or metal.  

Titanium dioxide is extensively used to coat polycarbonate, and thus, will drive market growth over coming years. A surge in construction activities across countries will also bolster the demand for titanium dioxide. Growth in construction activities will drive the demand for paints and coatings, and this in turn will benefit the market for nanoparticle titanium dioxide.

How is Increased Use of Ultrafine Particles of Titanium Dioxide in Cosmetics and Construction Industries Driving Market Growth?

Ultrafine titanium dioxide, also called nanoscale titanium dioxide, has a particle size of less than 100 nm. Ultrafine nanomaterial titanium dioxide has properties such as excellent transparency, better dispersibility, and more effective ultraviolet (UV) scattering and absorbing properties.

UV radiations released by the sun are in two wavelengths: UVA and UVB. These UV radiations are harmful to the skin and cause sunburn, cancer, and other problems. Ultrafine titanium dioxide is used in various applications in the cosmetics industry, such as in creams, loose and pressed powders, eyeshadows, blush, and sunscreens.

The ultrafine nanoparticles of titanium dioxide provide a flawless effect, better protection against harmful sun rays, and brightness. Hence, production of nanoparticle titanium dioxide has increased significantly across the world.

Application of titanium dioxide nanoparticles in the construction industry is also rapidly increasing. Construction materials are combined with titanium photocatalyst to improve self-cleaning, antibacterial action, air purification, and pollution resistance. Nanoparticles of titanium dioxide are primarily used in the construction industry across the U.S., Germany, China, and Spain.

As such, global titanium dioxide nanoparticle demand is set to rise further over the coming years.

An Adaptive Approach to Modern-day Research Needs

What are the Latest Trends Related to Titanium Dioxide Nanoparticles?

Demand for titanium dioxide nanomaterials in cosmetics has increased over the past few years. Titanium dioxide is a fine white powder that occurs naturally. It is also UV-resistant, and is used widely in sunscreens and pigments that are likely to be exposed to light.

Titanium dioxide is used in a wide variety of personal care products, including colour cosmetics such as eye shadow and blush, and loose and pressed powders. Use of titanium dioxide nanomaterials in sunscreens has become one of the latest trends in the cosmetics industry.

Use of titanium dioxide nanomaterials in surface coatings has also gained traction in the coating industry. Titanium dioxide has emerged as the most important white pigment used in the coatings industry. It is widely used because it efficiently scatters visible light, thereby imparting whiteness, brightness and opacity when incorporated into a coating.

Hence, demand for titanium dioxide nanomaterials in the paints and coatings industry is expected to rise further over the analysis period. This will, in turn, increase demand for nanoparticle titanium dioxide from pigment manufacturers as well.

Demand for titanium dioxide nanomaterials in plastics manufacturing is also one of the latest rapidly rising trends in the market. It is widely used because it efficiently scatters visible and absorbs UV light, thereby imparting whiteness, brightness, and opacity when incorporated into a plastic.

Demand for nanoparticle titanium dioxide as additive in engine oil has also increased. Mixing titanium dioxide nanoparticles in engine oil significantly reduces the friction and wear rate and hence improves the lubricating properties of engine oil. Application of titanium dioxide nanoparticles in electrical & electronics has also been increasing over the past years

Recently, titanium oxide was introduced as an alternative support material for heterogeneous catalyst due to the effect of its high surface area stabilizing the catalysts in its mesoporous structure. Titanium dioxide nanoparticle supported metal catalysts have attracted interest due to their high activity for various reduction and oxidation reactions at low pressures and temperatures.

Furthermore, titanium dioxide was found to be a good metal oxide catalyst support due to the strong metal support interaction, chemical stability, and acid-base property.

The aforementioned properties make heterogeneous titanium dioxide supported catalysts show a high potential in photocatalyst-related applications, electrodes for wet solar cells, synthesis of fine chemicals, and others.

Owing to these factors, use of titanium dioxide nanoparticles for catalysts will rise over the next ten years.

Applications of titanium dioxide nanomaterials for paper and ink manufacturing is also a trend that is being rapidly adapted in the industry. Titanium dioxide pigment, also called “titanium white”, is an essential element in many manufacturing processes with minerals of significant economic importance: ilmenite, rutile, and anatase.

Approximately 95% of titanium is consumed in the form of titanium dioxide (TiO2), a white pigment which is used for coating paper, and manufacturing printing ink.

Which Region Leads the Titanium Dioxide Nanoparticles Industry?

Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share in the market in 2020, followed by Europe and North America. Increasing investments in infrastructure development projects, growing urbanization, improving standard of living, and thriving automotive sector, as well as high economic growth, are key factors for the region's overall growth.

Strengthening economy of countries such as China and India attract new investments from global manufacturers. Asia Pacific is also the largest markets for paints and coating, driven by increasing population and rapid urbanization in China and India.

The market in the Asia Pacific region is dominated by China, followed by India. Also, presence of major producers of anatase titanium dioxide nanoparticle in China further presents growth opportunities for the market in the country.

Why Do Anatase Titanium Dioxide Nanoparticles Dominate the Market Based on Crystal Structure?

Anatase titanium dioxide nanoparticles are extracted in yellow and colourless forms. They have a distinct property of reacting under light. On the other hand, rutile is highly preferred owing to significant properties such as higher birefringence, and greater dispersion and refractive index. Sales of anatase titanium dioxide nanoparticles dominate the market owing to their high reflective properties.

Rutile form is also used in manufacturing of paints, plastics and paper. This form accounts for more than quarter of the global demand. Demand for rutile titanium dioxide nanoparticles is expected to rise further over the coming years, creating lucrative opportunities for top rutile titanium dioxide nanoparticle producers.

Demand for titanium nanoparticles is gaining momentum due to the rise in demand for electronics and electrical equipment. Anatase titanium crystal structure is particularly widely used in MLCC manufacturing, which is further utilized in semiconductor applications.

Combination of rutile & anatase titanium dioxide nanoparticles is also used as photocatalysts, further nudging market growth.
