Dublin, Aug. 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/qkd49l/titanium_dioxide) has announced the addition of the "Titanium Dioxide Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2020" report to their offering.
Demand for lightweight vehicles has increased due to rising demand for fuel-efficient vehicles. This trend is anticipated to continue during the forecast period. Polycarbonate is a thermoplastic used in the production of lightweight vehicles. Polycarbonate is light in weight, and offers high tensile strength and other characteristics essential for substituting glass and metal-based parts in automobiles. However, polycarbonate offers low scratch resistance. This has hampered its market growth. Titanium dioxide is one of the major materials used to coat polycarbonates.
Therefore, increasing demand for lightweight vehicles and rising demand for polycarbonate have been major factors driving demand for titanium dioxide. Titanium dioxide particle sized between 4 nanometers and 30 nanometers are titanium dioxide nanoparticles. The nanoparticles are being preferred over large sized particles in several end user industries including food and personal care among others. Therefore, demand for titanium dioxide nanoparticles has been increasing at a better pace and this trend is anticipated to continue over the forecast period. This is estimated to be among foremost factors driving growth of the titanium dioxide market during the forecast period.
