Free Market Analysis


Titanium dioxide is a white-colored, solid, inorganic material with high thermal stability and poor solubility. Major raw materials used in the production of titanium dioxide include mineral sources such as ilmenite and rutile. Major processes used in the manufacture of titanium dioxide include sulfate process and chloride process.

Demand for lightweight vehicles has increased due to rising demand for fuel-efficient vehicles. This trend is anticipated to continue during the forecast period. Polycarbonate is a thermoplastic used in the production of lightweight vehicles. Polycarbonate is light in weight, and offers high tensile strength and other characteristics essential for substituting glass and metal-based parts in automobiles. However, polycarbonate offers low scratch resistance. This has hampered its market growth. Titanium dioxide is one of the major materials used to coat polycarbonates. Therefore, increasing demand for lightweight vehicles and rising demand for polycarbonate have been major factors driving demand for titanium dioxide. Titanium dioxide particle sized between 4 nanometers and 30 nanometers are titanium dioxide nanoparticles. The nanoparticles are being preferred over large sized particles in several end user industries including food and personal care among others. Therefore, demand for titanium dioxide nanoparticles has been increasing at a better pace and this trend is anticipated to continue over the forecast period. This is estimated to be among foremost factors driving growth of the titanium dioxide market during the forecast period. 

Several hazardous wastes including liquid, solid and gaseous wastes are produced during the manufacture of titanium dioxide. This has led to increase in environmental regulations. Furthermore, there are rising concerns over the penetration of titanium dioxide in the human body due to its usage in the food industry. Environmental and health hazards associated with titanium dioxide have resulted in an increase in the number of stringent regulations in the titanium dioxide market. This is one of the major factors restraining demand for titanium dioxide. Rising demand for coatings in photovoltaic modules is projected to offer high growth opportunities to the titanium dioxide market.

Based on application, demand for titanium dioxide has been segregated into four major segments: paints & coatings, plastic, paper and others. Paints & coatings was the largest application segment for titanium dioxide in 2013 and accounted for over 50% of the market share in the same year. This trend is anticipated to continue during the forecast period. Titanium dioxide is used in the manufacture of plastic to improve its characteristics such as tensile strength, color and opacity. Plastic is likely to be the fastest growing application segment due to high growth in end-user industries such as packaging and automotive. Other application segments include niche application segments such as artificial fibers and inks.


Asia Pacific dominated the global titanium dioxide market, with market share of over 40% in 2013. This trend is expected to continue during the forecast period. Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest growing region in the near future due to high growth in several end-user industries in emerging economies of India and China. North America was the second-largest market for titanium dioxide, followed by Europe. Increasing number of environmental regulations in North America and Europe has hampered the growth of the titanium dioxide market in these regions. Furthermore, rising demand for polycarbonates is estimated to drive demand for titanium dioxide in Europe.

The titanium dioxide market is consolidated in nature, with the top four players constituting over 50% of the global market share. Major end-use industries include automobiles and consumer goods packaging. Buyers enter into long-term agreements with titanium dioxide manufacturers for customized solutions. Furthermore, overproduction has led to high price sensitivity in the market. Major players in the titanium dioxide market include DuPont, Cristal Global, Kronos Worldwide and Tronox Limited.
