Global Rutile Titanium Dioxide Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Rutile Titanium Dioxide is a type of titanium dioxide that is made up of tiny crystals. It has a higher refractive index than other types of titanium dioxide, which means that it can be used to make products with a high shine. Rutile titanium dioxide is also more resistant to fading and discoloration than other types of titanium dioxide.

Sulfate Process:

Sulfate process is a method of producing titanium dioxide which involves treating with sulfuric acid at elevated temperature. The reaction produces pure and highly transparent fine white powder, which has high refractive index. It also offers good dispersibility and is stable in nature under most environmental conditions.

Chloride Process:

The chloride process is used to manufacture titanium dioxide. It involves the reaction of silica with chlorine and sodium hydroxide in the presence of a catalyst at high temperature and pressure. The product obtained after this process is known as titanium dioxide, which has wide applications in paints & coatings, plastics, rubber products, adhesives & sealants and printing inks industries.

Application Insights:

Rutile titanium dioxide is used in a variety of applications including paints, plastics, paper and others. In terms of volume, the paints application segment dominated the global market with a share of 33.1% in 2017. The product has high refractive index which makes it suitable for use as an additive to improve optical properties and reduce flaking tendency during dry-film coating processes. It also helps enhance film formation by providing nucleation sites for polymer growth which results in enhanced adhesion between the substrate and paint layer along with improved glossiness and luster on finished products.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The growth of this region can be attributed to rising demand from end-use industries such as paints & coatings, plastics, and others. China is one of the largest producers of rutile titanium dioxide globally owing to low manufacturing costs coupled with availability of cheap labor in this country.

The Asia Pacific market was followed by Europe which accounted for a revenue share of 22% in 2017 on account that most major companies have their manufacturing plants located there due to high demand from various end-use industries coupled with stringent regulations regarding environment protection. In addition, growing use across several industrial applications including water treatment will drive product demand further over the coming years.

North America emerged as a significant consumer owing to increasing application scope across various industrial sectors such as construction, automotive paint & coating.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the paints and coatings industry as a result of growth in the construction and automotive sectors.
  • Rising demand for titanium dioxide in various end-use applications such as plastics, paper, textiles, cosmetics, and food & beverage due to its properties such as whiteness, brightness, opacity and UV protection.
  • Growing awareness about the benefits of using titanium dioxide in various applications among consumers is expected to boost market growth over the forecast period.
  • Technological advancements that have led to development of new products with better performance characteristics are likely to propel market growth during the forecast period .
