Titanium Dioxide Market Trends

  • Growing construction industry will boost market growth

One of the key elements driving up demand for paints and coatings is the building sector's  growth, which includes residential and non-residential infrastructure. The U.S. housing market is continually expanding. The U.S. Census Bureau reports that in April 2021, compared to April 2020, the total value of construction grew by 9.8%. China, India, and other Southeast Asian nations are the hubs of building activity, making the APAC region the largest titanium dioxide market for the construction sector. Rapid urban and industrialization, rising purchasing power parity (PPP), a high standard of living, and rising disposable income all contribute to the construction industry's expansion. The largest market for titanium dioxide in the building industry in China.

Paints and coatings used in architecture use titanium dioxide. Architectural paints must be water- and UV-resistant, while some specialist coatings must be resistant to chemicals and corrosion. Titanium dioxide offers a fantastic, long-lasting coating that can withstand the sun's U.V. rays and keep a freshly painted appearance for a considerable amount of time. For improved color fading, chalking, and fracture resistance, titanium dioxide is used in paints and varnishes for external surfaces. Additionally, it possesses a photocatalytic activity that permits self-cleaning and offers defense against bacteria, algae, fungi, and pollutants. Since titanium dioxide is used in paints and coatings, they are simple to apply, maintain a fresh appearance for a long time, require fewer coats and have easy-to-clean surfaces. The yearly household disposable income has grown internationally, according to the OECD. Consumers' high discretionary income boosts their purchasing power and raises their living levels. These elements fuel demand for home improvement and interior design, which in turn fuels a surge in demand for decorative paints and coatings and stimulates the growth of the titanium dioxide market CAGR.

The need for skincare products is increasing. Because it offers a high color context, including enhanced intensity and brightness, helps absorb oils generated by the skin, and shields it from U.V. radiation, titanium dioxide (TiO2) is frequently utilized in the cosmetics sector. The worldwide cosmetics sector is developing significantly as a result of increased disposable income, expanding middle-class aspirational spending, changing lifestyles, and a taste for high-quality goods. Additionally, the growing understanding of the need to maintain an even skin tone, healthy skin practices, and efforts to seem beautiful and youthful is fueling the increased demand for skin care products. Additionally, the need for lightweight vehicles is rising. Growing demand for lightweight automobiles, facilitated by rising technical breakthroughs and innovations in the automotive industry, is the main factor driving this titanium dioxide market's rise. Regulations on emission laws, which are expected to raise demand, are to blame for the surge in demand for fuel-efficient vehicles. The improvement in consumer lifestyles increased renovation activity, and new government infrastructure projects are the main factors driving the growth of the titanium dioxide market revenue. Expansion in other sectors including consumer goods, electronics, and appliance manufacture also helps to meet demand.
