Rising demand for lightweight automobiles is estimated to be one of the major factors driving the titanium dioxide market across the globe. Increasing preference for fuel-efficient and low emission vehicles has boosted the demand for lightweight vehicles across the globe. Polycarbonate is used extensively in the production of lightweight vehicles. Polycarbonate is characterized by low scratch resistance, which makes it unfeasible in automotive applications. However, titanium coatings offer high scratch resistance vis-à-vis polycarbonate. Thus, titanium dioxide is increasingly used in coatings applications in the global automotive market. Construction is the other major end-user industry for titanium dioxide across the globe. Expansion in the construction industry in Asia Pacific is projected to augment the demand for titanium dioxide in paints & coatings applications in the next few years.

Paints & coatings was the major application segment, accounting for over 55% share of the global titanium dioxide market in 2014. Titanium dioxide is extensively used in paints & coatings applications in various end-user industries. Paints & coatings is anticipated to be the major application segment of the titanium dioxide market during the forecast period. Plastics was the other major application segment of titanium dioxide.
