COVID-19 Impact on Titanium Dioxide Market: The market had adverse effect on the market growth due to COVID-19 pandemic. The manufacturing activities and construction work were halted due to supply chain disruptions and labor shortages during the pandemic, thus affecting the demand from various application sectors, such as paints and coatings, plastics, cosmetics, and other application sectors. Due to the pandemic, there is the temporary halt of construction activities, manufacturing activities, and trade activities. This mineral is used as a pigment for paints and so the slowdown of manufacturing activities for paints & coatings along with stopped construction activities is resulting in declining consumption and demand of titanium dioxide. Due to the reduced demand for various consumer-based products, where the material is used as raw material to provide pigment which leads to the decline in the economy during the pandemic. The global lockdown had a significant impact on the trading and distribution activities of several global manufacturers, which further caused increased pricing of raw material and finished goods. This affected to the growth of the titanium dioxide market during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Titanium Dioxide Market Dynamics:

Automotive and construction sectors driving the growth of the market: The increasing use of titanium dioxide in various end-user sectors such as lightweight automobiles, increased plastic production, and growing demand for paints and coatings in the construction industry, notably in the industrial sector resulted into the growth of the titanium dioxide market. The growing demand for lightweight automobiles has had a positive impact on the titanium dioxide market share. These factors are driving the titanium dioxide market across the globe. The growing construction industry, with both residential and non-residential organizations, across the globe is boosting the demand for paints and coatings. Rapid urbanization and industrialization, as well as an increase in purchasing power parity with the high standard of livings, are driving the construction industry in titanium dioxide market. Nano-sized titanium dioxide is utilized as a catalyst support material and is mostly used in the automotive industry to reduce harmful gas emissions and remove nitrous oxides from power plants. Furthermore, rising advancements in the automotive sector are driving up demand for paints and coatings. Titanium dioxide finds applications in architectural paints and coatings. Architectural paints must have UV and water resistance, whereas some specialized coatings need to be chemical and corrosion-resistant. Titanium dioxide provides an excellent durable coating that can resist UV rays from the sun and maintain a newly painted look for a significant time. Titanium dioxide is used in paints and coatings meant for exterior surfaces for better color fading, chalking, and cracking resistance. These factors lead to the growth of the market. Strict regulations imposed by government restrain the growth: The concerns about titanium dioxide's adverse effects, such as the fact it is a potential carcinogen for humans and can harm the environment, are expected to hamper its acceptance and act as a restraining factor for market growth. The titanium dioxide has broad application scope and is used in numerous end-user applications, and this various regulations on the use of the product are expected to restrain the market growth. Dust particles of the product are grouped under 2B carcinogenic by IRAC and have the possibility of being carcinogenic to humans. In manufacturing plants, workers must follow various protective measures, including the use of personal protective equipment and safety data sheets for material handling. Several waste products are released during the production of titanium dioxide and due to this government had imposed restrictions which restrains the growth of the market. Titanium dioxide is acidic, and its improper disposable method creates numerous environmental problems. The dumping of sulfuric acid into the sea causes a sudden drop in the pH value of receiving water which reduces the oxygen levels in the water and destroys the marine life. Also, when it is dumped into the soil, sulphuric acid is released into the air and cause a harmful effect on the environment. The Government of China and the European government have enforced environmental policies to prohibit the discharge of the waste generated during the manufacturing of titanium dioxide into rivers or seawater and harmonize programs that limit discharge and wastewater. All these regulations restrict the production of titanium dioxide across many regions and this restrains the growth of the titanium dioxide market. The cosmetics and constructions industries providing new opportunities: The use of ultrafine particles of titanium dioxide in cosmetics and construction industries increases provides new opportunities to the growth of the market. Ultrafine nanomaterial titanium dioxide has various properties such as excellent transparency, better dispersibility, and more effective ultraviolet (UV) scattering and absorbing properties. UV radiations released by the sun are available in two wavelengths: UVA and UVB. These UV radiations are harmful to the skin and cause sunburn, cancer, and other problems. The ultrafine titanium dioxide is used in various applications in the cosmetics industry, such as creams, loose and pressed powders, eyeshadows, blush, and sunscreens. The ultrafine nanoparticles of titanium dioxide provide flawless effect, better protection against harmful sun rays, and brightness. The construction industry uses nanoparticles of titanium dioxide rapidly and provides the new opportunities for the market growth. Fluctuating rates of raw materials challenges Titanium Dioxide Market growth: The production of titanium dioxide had adverse effect on the market growth due to the fluctuation of the prices of raw materials. The factors such the prices of raw materials which is necessary to manufacture titanium dioxide are the constant changes in import and export policies and stringent government norms imposed for environmental safety. In China, the sulphate process is used to produce titanium dioxide. Hence, the use of sulphur in the sulfuric acid industry in China mainly relies on export. Therefore, the change in the international market price of sulphur will directly affect the price of sulfuric acid, thereby affecting the price of titanium dioxide. The rapid changes in titanium dioxide prices are observed because of constant changes in the prices of raw materials such as ilmenite and rutile. Hence, the manufacturing cost of the product is affected due to the fluctuations in their price. The main reason which challenges the growth of the titanium dioxide market for the changes in prices of titanium dioxide is the leading Venator company that has stated the price change in raw material. Moreover, the shift toward the chloride process for titanium dioxide production also impacts the price of titanium dioxide. This fluctuating prices of raw materials during the production challenges the market growth.
