"Summary

An ideal opacifier is considered to be an additive that has the ability to actively prevent the transmission of light. For an opacifier to work efficiently, the refractive index of the opacifier (np) should be higher than the refractive index of the medium (nm) in which it is dispersed.1 Products that appear more transparent are usually associated with water by customers. Hence, they are often thought to be less efficient by the customers. By adding opacifiers to products during the production process, manufacturers can make their product opaquer and visually appealing to the customers.

Titanium dioxide is the most commonly used opacifier across various industries. Key end-use industries such as paints and coating, ceramics, plastics, and personal care are driving the demand for titanium dioxide. Among the various applications of opacifiers, the paints and coatings segment is expected to account for the majority of the market, followed by the ceramics industry. One of the main factors driving the paints and coatings segment is the increased growth of the construction industry in emerging economies, particularly in Asia-Pacific countries such as India and China.

Reasons for Doing This Study

The global opacifiers market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.3% over the forecast period from 2018 to 2023. Titanium dioxide accounts for the highest share of opacifier products. Factors such as the growth of application segments like paints and coatings, personal care, and ceramics; technological advancements for delivering opaque polymers with better efficiency; and the production of titanium dioxide using nanotechnology are driving the demand of opacifiers across the world.

A comprehensive study on the different types of opacifiers is extremely important in understanding the crucial role played by opacifiers in different end-user industries."
