The most significant factor that will drive the demands for TiO2 during the forecast period is the rise in global building and infrastructure construction activities. TiO2 is used as a whitening agent in construction materials, paints, and coatings because of the intensity of its opaque white color. TiO2-based paints also resist discoloration under intense heat and UV radiation due to which they are used widely in outer coatings of buildings.
This market research report on the global titanium dioxide market 2018-2022 provides an analysis of the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook during the forecast period. Technavio predicts an emerging trend as a major factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.

Global titanium dioxide market: Growing adoption of water-based coatings
At present, the demand for solvent-based coatings maintains the lead share in the global protective coatings market. However, solvent-based TiO2 coatings contain volatile chemicals that are hazardous to the human body and the natural environment. This is expected to encourage the adoption of water-based coatings for surface protection. Regulatory authorities in several developed countries are already imposing stringent regulations on solvent-based coatings to limit their use in end products and are favoring water-based coatings that have low to zero volatile organic compound emissions.
“When compared with over solvent-based, water-based coatings also yield various advantages such as improved color-matching ability, faster drying times, and better resistance to environment and weather conditions and variety of chemicals,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on specialty chemicals.
