Zinc carbonate (ZnCO3), commonly known as smithsonite, is an ore containing metal zinc. Zinc carbonate is used as hydrogen sulfide scavenger in water based drilling mud. Zinc carbonate is fine white powder having no odor and taste. Furthermore, zinc carbonate does not dissolve in water and alcohol however, slightly soluble in ammonia, can dissolve in diluted acid and sodium hydroxide. Zinc carbonate is used as a feed additive in cosmetics, lotions, personal care, porcelains, pottery, household and rubber. The growing demand from cosmetic industry and other industrial applications is expected to drive the global zinc carbonate market in the years to come.
Zinc carbonate is useful in transparent rubber mixtures along with other chemical processes. Furthermore, typical fungicide and antiseptic properties of zinc has provided applications of zinc carbonate in personal care and household. Zinc carbonate is used as a curing agent in rubber compounds; furthermore, zinc carbonate is used as accelerator activator for translucent, transparent and brightly pigmented rubber material. Zinc carbonate is used in petroleum and chemical fertilizer industries as the key material of the desulfurizer and catalyst. Owing to all such benefits, zinc carbonate is growingly used in end-user industries such as cosmetic industries, and rubber industries across the globe. The major driving factor for zinc carbonate is its application in cosmetic industry. The rising demand of cosmetic product would play a vital role for the zinc carbonate market in the years to come.
Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest growing market for zinc carbonate in the next six years.
