Titanium dioxide finds application in various products such as paints, coatings, plastics, rubber, paper, and semiconductors. It is widely used due to its brightness and high reflective index. Major consumers of titanium dioxide include industries such as paints & coatings, paper, and plastics.
In terms of volume, the Australia titanium dioxide market was pegged at 55 kilotons (KT) in 2015. The market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 4.0% in terms of value over the forecast period (2016–2024).
Increasing demand for automobiles and housing due to increasing disposable income along with changing consumer preferences in emerging economies such as China and India are expected to fuel the growth of the paints & coatings industry, which in turn is expected to fuel demand for titanium dioxide pigments. This is anticipated to drive the growth of the titanium dioxide market in Australia as the country exports titanium dioxide pigments to these countries.
Also, growing environmental concerns over clean energy sources are anticipated to drive demand for solar panels, which are manufactured using titanium dioxide pigments. This is expected to drive growth of the titanium dioxide market in Australia over the forecast period. However, factors such as global economic slowdown and growing use of substitutes such as silica in solar panels are expected to restraint growth of the titanium dioxide market.
