Titanium dioxide is used for interior architectural paint & coatings application on account of maximum hiding power. Exterior applications require gloss and tint retention, self-cleaning ability and sustainability of atmospheric conditions. The product is increasingly used in industrial coatings on account of opacity, exterior durability, acid-catalyzed coatings and film curing properties. Increasing demand from paints & coatings sector is expected to augment industry growth over the forecast period.
  • Plastics application demand was estimated over 1.5 kilo tons in 2014. Increasing use in the manufacturing of doors and windows is expected to have a positive impact on the market over the next seven years.
  • Europe was the second largest market with revenue estimated over USD 4.30 billion in 2014. Growing personal care industry in UK, Germany, Italy and France is expected to drive titanium dioxide demand over the forecast period.
