Opacifiers Market Insights

The global opacifiers market will grow from USD 17.2 billion in 2021 to reach USD 22.6 billion in 2026, with a CAGR of 6.8% during the forecast period. The rising demand for opacifiers from numerous end-use industries such as personal care, healthcare, pharmaceuticals and ceramics is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period. Opacifiers are additives that are used to make transparent items opaque. The process of transforming a transparent material into an opaque material with the help of opacifiers involves three mechanisms: thermal expansion, crystallization, and suspended micro-bubbles. Tin oxide and zircon opacifiers are two of the most prevalent opacifiers.

The flourishing pharmaceutical industry globally is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period. Moreover, increasing product launch activities and a rising number of local players are also anticipated to push the market. The other factors boosting the growth of opacifiers trends in 2021 include developments in the latest technologies to improve coating performance and increasing application area of opacifiers. Moreover, the flourishing cosmetics and personal use industry, augment of nanotechnology into the production process and rising research and development expenditure by opacifiers manufacturers are some of the factors supporting the growth of the opacifiers market. A rising number of research activities related to the latest opacifier technology by top market players will support the market growth. For instance, some of the key manufacturers of the market such as DowDuPont, Arkema, and Tronox are working relentlessly on creating EVOQUE pre-composite polymer technology, which is made entirely of acrylic and provides superior wet and dry hiding efficiency as well as enhanced performance properties for opaque polymers.

global opacifiers market

Opacifiers Market: By Type

The type of opacifier segment is categorized into zircon, opaque polymers, zinc oxide, arsenic trioxide, cerium oxide, antimony trioxide, tin oxide, and titanium dioxide. Titanium dioxide is expected to hold the lion’s share from 2021 to 2026. In surfactant-based formulations, titanium dioxide provides whiteness and brightness. The flourishing end-use sectors such as plastics, paints, and coatings, and personal care is boosting demand for titanium dioxide. Growing demand for personal care products, an increase in the number of demand from the pharmaceutical sector, rapidly changing lifestyles, and increasing awareness of cleanliness and skin-care products are driving the market expansion especially in the personal care industry. The market for titanium dioxide opacifiers is also being driven by an increase in consumer expenditure on premium personal care products.

Furthermore, the zircon opacifier is expected to be the fastest-growing segment in terms of volume and revenue during the forecast period. Zircon opacifier finds its application in the ceramics industry. One of the major reasons for this segment to grow rapidly is the increasing nuclear power stations and the growing usage of surface coatings.

Opacifiers Market: By Application

Paints & coatings, inks, personal care, home care, paper, fibers, ceramics, plastics, glass, and other applications are the major segments of the opacifiers market. The paints & coatings segment is expected to hold the largest market share in terms of revenue from 2021 to 2026. The flourishing paint industry, increasing construction projects across developing regions, rapidly rising urbanization, and rising purchasing power of the developing country’s population are some of the factors expected to fuel the opacifier market growth from 2021-2026 for paints & coatings segment.

Opacifiers Market: By Region

As per the geographical analysis, the opacifiers market can be classified into North America (the United States, Canada, and Mexico), Asia Pacific (India, China, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, and the Rest of Asia Pacific), Europe (Germany, United Kingdom, Italy, France, Spain, Netherlands, and Rest of Europe), Middle East & Africa (Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and Rest of the Middle East & Africa) and Central & South America (Brazil, Argentina, and Rest of Central and South America).

North America (the United States, Canada, and Mexico) will have a dominant share in the market from 2021 to 2026. The largest share of the North American region is mainly due to the presence of key competitors in the U.S. market, strong economic growth, and increasing adoption of opacifiers in most of the end-user sectors. Moreover, the growing government frameworks along with the rising healthcare infrastructure are some of the factors supporting the growth of the opacifiers market in the U.S. during the forecast period.

Furthermore, the Asia Pacific region will grow with the highest CAGR rate in the market. Rising construction activities, increasing R&D investments in the paints & coatings, and personal care products industry, changing lifestyle, and rising disposable income will impact the opacifier market size in the APAC region positively. Another aspect driving this region's development in the opacifiers market is its increasing economy and rapidly rising population. The rising population in developing countries will certainly demand an increase in the use of opacifiers through end products. The Asia-Pacific region will account for more than 25% of worldwide beauty and personal care sales. Due to the Japanese and South Korean innovation in beauty products, as well as rising demand from the Chinese market, the production of personal care goods in the region is expected to increase the demand for opacifiers in the upcoming years (2022-2026).
