“Key end-use industries such as paints and coating, ceramics, plastics and personal care are driving the demand for titanium dioxide,” notes BCC Research analyst Aneesh Kumar. “Among the various applications of opacifiers, the paints and coatings segment is expected to account for the majority of the market, followed by the ceramics industry.”

Potential for Growth in the Personal Care Segment

Manufacturers of chemical products are trying hard to satisfy the increasing demand for ingredients needed for personal care products such as oral, hair and skin care products. As an industry that is huge and growing rapidly, this is a challenge for the chemical companies. But the potential for growth is considerably huge in this industry, mainly because of factors such as increasing disposable income in emerging countries, an increasing aging population in western countries and an increase in demand for products in new sub-segments of the personal care industry such as halal beauty, bio-based skin care and a rising men’s grooming market.
