Report Code : CH 6819
Published ON : Dec, 2018

[139 Pages Report] The opacifiers market size is estimated to be USD 15.2 billion in 2018 and is projected reach USD 20.6 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 6.2% between 2018 and 2023. The market is mainly driven by the rising demand for opacifiers from the end-use industries such as personal care, paints & coatings, and ceramics. Growing demand for opacifiers in upcoming applications has created various opportunities for its manufacturers. APAC is the key market for opacifiers, globally, followed by Europe and North America. One of the primary drivers of the market is the increasing demand for paints & coatings, ceramics, and personal care products in these regions.

Opacifiers Market

Paints & coatings is expected to be the largest application during the forecast period

On the basis of application, the opacifiers market has been segmented into paints & coatings, plastics, ceramics, paper, inks, fibers, personal care, home care, glass, and others. The increased consumption of paints & coatings is attributed to the growing construction industry in APAC. The construction output of the APAC countries is increasing gradually due to the growing population and the increased number of nuclear families. In addition, the increasing purchasing power of the middle-class population and rising standards of living are driving the industry. These factors are expected to fuel the growth of the opacifiers market between 2018 and 2023.

The titanium dioxide segment accounts for the largest share of the overall market.

On the basis of type, the opacifiers market has been segmented into titanium dioxide, opaque polymers, zircon, zinc oxide, cerium oxide, antimony trioxide, tin oxide, and arsenic trioxide. The titanium dioxide is expected to be the largest type during the forecast period.  The growth of end-use industries such as paints & coatings, personal care, and plastics are driving the demand for this type. Rising demand for personal care products, increase in a number of working women, changing lifestyle, and growing awareness of hygiene and skin care products are fueling the growth of the market in the personal care end-use industry. The increase in spending on superior personal care products is also driving the titanium dioxide opacifiers market.

Opacifiers Market

APAC is expected to account for the largest share of the opacifiers market during the forecast period.

APAC is estimated to be the largest market for opacifiers due to its growing economy and increasing population. With industrialization and increasing employment, disposable income is expected to increase. This dominance of APAC is mainly due to the increasing population and improving lifestyles at each financial stratum. The demand for opacifiers is dependent on their usage in industries such as paints & coatings, plastics, and ceramics, which contributes more than 80% of its global demand. Companies are investing more in R&D to find out applications of opacifiers in the unconventional industry segments to increase their scope and demand.

The key market players profiled in the report include DowDuPont (US), Arkema (France), Ashland Global Holdings Inc. (US), Tayca Corporation (Japan), Chemours Company (US), Tronox Limited (US), Kronos Worldwide Inc. (US), Cristal (Kuwait), Alkane Resources Ltd (US), En-tech Polymer Co. Ltd. (South Korea), and Venator (UK).

DowDuPont is amongst the leading manufacturers of opacifiers. The company focuses on adopting organic and inorganic strategies such as expansions, mergers & acquisitions, and new product launches to increase its customer base and product portfolio. For instance, in 2017, the company signed an agreement to establish the coating manufacturing site in Saudi Arabia to increase the global reach and to cater to the market of Saudi Arabia effectively. In 2011, the company developed EVOQUE pre-composite polymer technology for opaque polymers to increase their efficiency.

Chemours Company is also amongst the leading suppliers of opacifiers. Chemours Company caters to the demand for specialized opacifiers in North America, South America, the Middle East & Africa, Europe, and APAC. It has a strong foothold in APAC, North America, and Europe, generating a majority of its revenue. It has expanded its R&D centers and floor capacity by continuously investing in the expansion of laboratories, which enables the company to cater to the demand of customers effectively.

Recent Developments

  • In September 2017, The Dow Chemical Company announced the successful completion of the merger of equals with DuPont (US). This merger helped the companies to expand their business and cater to the demand for opacifiers effectively through each other’s distribution network.
  • In June 2017, Tronox acquired a stake of 24% in the National Titanium dioxide Company (Cristal), for USD 1.67 billion.
  • In May 2017, DowDuPont signed an agreement to establish a new polymer manufacturing site in Jubail (Saudi Arabia). This expansion enabled it to capture the opaque polymers market in Saudi Arabia and to increase revenue.
  • In May 2016, Chemours Company began the commercial start-up of its new Titanium dioxide line at its Altamira plant in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas with a full capacity of 200,000 metric tons per year. This plant will produce Ti-Pure Titanium dioxide pigments and will serve global customers with high-performance products.

The study involved four major activities to estimate the market size for opacifiers. Exhaustive secondary research was done to collect information on the market, the peer market, and the parent market. The next step was to validate these findings, assumptions, and sizing with industry experts across the value chain through primary research. Both top-down and bottom-up approaches were employed to estimate the complete market size. Thereafter, the market breakdown and data triangulation procedures were used to estimate the market size of the segments and subsegments.

Secondary Research

Secondary sources used in this study included annual reports, press releases, and investor presentations of companies; white papers; certified publications; articles from recognized authors; and gold standard & silver standard websites such as Factiva, ICIS, Bloomberg, and others. Findings of this study were verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key officials such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and other executives. The breakdown of profiles of the primary interviewees is illustrated in the figure below:
