Transparency Market Research has published a new market report titled "Titanium Dioxide Market for Paints & Coatings, Plastic, Paper and Other Applications - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2020." According to the report, the global titanium dioxide market was valued at USD 13.14 billion in 2013 and is anticipated to reach USD 17.12 billion by 2020, expanding at a CAGR of 3.8% from 2014 to 2020.
Titanium dioxide is a white-colored, solid, inorganic material with high thermal stability and poor solubility. Major raw materials used in the production of titanium dioxide include mineral sources such as ilmenite and rutile. Major processes used in the manufacturing of titanium dioxide include sulfate process and chloride process.

Demand for lightweight vehicles has increased due to rising demand for fuel-efficient vehicles. This trend is estimated to continue during the forecast period. Polycarbonate, a thermoplastic, is used as a substitute for metal and glass-based automotive parts in lightweight materials. However, low scratch resistance of polycarbonate has restrained its market growth. Titanium dioxide is one of the major coating materials used to coat polycarbonate. Therefore, rising demand for lightweight vehicles coupled with increasing demand for polycarbonate has been a major factor driving demand for titanium dioxide. Demand for titanium dioxide nanoparticles has increased in the recent times. This is projected to drive growth of the titanium dioxide market during the forecast period. There has been an increase in the number of stringent regulations in the titanium dioxide market due to environmental and health hazards associated with titanium dioxide. This is one of the major factors hampering demand for titanium dioxide. Rising demand for coatings in photovoltaic modules to increase their efficiency is likely to offer high growth opportunities in the titanium dioxide market.
Based on application, demand for titanium dioxide has been segregated into four major segments: paints & coatings, plastic, paper, and others. Paints & coatings was the largest application segment for titanium dioxide in 2013 and accounted for over 50% of the market share in the same year. This trend is expected to continue during the forecast period. Plastic is anticipated to be the fastest growing application segment owing to high growth in end-user industries such as packaging and automotive. Other application segments include niche application segments such as artificial fibers and inks.

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...
