Asia-Pacific was the largest region in the chlor-alkali and inorganics market in 2017, accounting for 38.3% share in the market. This was because chlor-alkali and inorganics are used in various industries such as automotive, aerospace, aviation, and others for enhancing performance of products, reducing product weight and improving other product characteristics.North America was the second largest region in the chlor-alkali and inorganics market in 2017, accounting for 21.4% share in the market. This can be attributed to production of inorganic chemicals in large quantities to suffice the domestic industrial demand.Middle East was the smallest region in the chlor-alkali and inorganics market in 2017, accounting for 4.0%.
Rising Adoption Of Nano Titanium Dioxide
Titanium dioxide nanoparticles are being increasingly adopted for controlling environmental pollution, sterilization and restraining viruses in water and defending the harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun, there by driving the demand for titanium dioxide. Nano titanium dioxide is non-toxic, has enhanced chemical stability and is cheap. The trend of using nano titanium dioxide as a UV filter in the sunscreens and other personal care products is picking up recently. Titanium dioxide in the nano form has the highest refractive index of all white pigments, which is expected to increase the rate of adoption in various applications. For example, nano titanium dioxide is being added as a raw material into paints, cements and windows due to its sterilizing properties and its ability to block UV light. It is also capable of giving self-cleaning ability to the surface it is applied on.
Chlor-alkali and inorganics are some of the most widely utilized basic chemicals in agriculture and FMCG market. Chlor-alkalis are produced from natural minerals and salts found on earth’s lithosphere and sea. Chlor-alkali/ inorganics are used to produce various end-user products such as fertilizers, soaps, pigments etc. Caustic soda, ammonium phosphate and titanium oxide are some of the examples of chlor-alkali and inorganics market.
