Industry Overview

Industry Overview

The white pigment market expands with growth of global GDP. Today, the market exceeds $17 billion.

 

Largest consumers of TiO2 pigment are paint and plastics manufacturers. Other uses include paper, inks, textiles, and even food and pharmaceutical products.

 

Pigment production is dominated by two entrenched production methodologies — the industry has not seen significant process innovation in approximately 70 years.

 

TiO2 pigment is a benign inorganic material. The legacy production processes, however, produce significant acid waste streams and carbon pollution.
