Nano zinc oxide dispersions & powders are inorganic zinc oxide nanoparticles that possess antibacterial, antifungal, anticorrosive, catalytic, and UV filtering properties. They are nanoparticles of zinc oxide which have diameters less than 100 nanometers and have a large surface area in correspondence with their size and high catalytic activity. Possible ways to produce zinc oxide nanoparticles include electrochemical depositions, hydrothermal methods, sol–gel method, thermal decomposition, chemical vapor deposition etc.

Cosmetics segment appears to be the most attractive market for the industry players owing to increased purchasing power in the emerging economies and growth in awareness among the consumers regarding adverse effects of UV rays. Factors such as age, location or socioeconomic background plays a vital role in cosmetic industry. Functionality of nano zinc oxide in the cosmetic and personal care is highest due to their exceptional physio-chemical properties. Rising inclination of manufacturers to use soluble and biodegradable nano emulsions in cosmetics will positively influence the nano zinc oxide market growth. Nanoparticles are now popularly used in every personal care product available in market, including shampoo, deodorant, sunscreens, soaps, toothpaste, hair conditioner, perfume, foundation, lipstick, and after-shave lotion owing to increasing demand for sun protection cosmetics. Minimal regulatory constraints and limited health impacts is increasing its implementation in skincare and medical products. Huge expenditure in research & innovation and highly formulated industrial chemicals produced in developed nation will escalate the product demand.

Paints and coatings cross-apply to numerous consumer markets from aerospace & automotive to construction and hygiene. They offer a range of functionalities such as thermal barrier, anti-bacterial, easy-clean, anti-corrosion, protective and UV-absorbent etc. Increase in inflow of investment for R&D, growth in utility of nano zinc oxides in various end-use industries, coupled with exceptional physiochemical properties will adoption of nano zinc oxide in various applications. In addition, the fabrics manufactured by using ZnO NPs possess unique function of UV and visible light resistance. Apart from these, the product is also used in various other industries such as electronics, plastics & films, rubber etc.

The rising product developments in nanomaterials is providing a positive outlook for utility of metal oxide nanoparticles in the biomedical fields. The increasing applications of nano zinc oxide including antibacterial, anticancer drug, antimicrobial, cell imaging, gene delivery and biosensing will drive the industry share. Additionally, water solubility, biocompatibility and non-toxic synthesis route of nano zinc oxide particle appears to be a lucrative opportunity in biomedical field. However, rising concerns of environmental hazards caused by increasing toxicity of metal-based nanomaterials will restrict nano zinc oxide market share. Zinc oxide nano materials released through the domestic and industrial wastewaters into the aquatic ecosystem will limit the product growth over the projected timeframe.

Un-coated Nano ZnO highly popular

Un-coated Nano ZNO do not contain any inert coatings and are directly used in finished products. Both coated and uncoated particles are used in the sunscreen products. The size range of ZnO particles used in sunscreens are from 20 to 60 nm. Uncoated zinc is considered more photo-reactive, or UV rays can cause free radical change on the skin. Skincare industry participant Badger uses un-coated zinc oxide in topical skin care products such as creams, lotions and diaper rash cream.

On the other hand, coated nano zinc oxide have a higher potentiality towards preparation of electrical and optical devices, solar cell, gas sensors, chemical absorbent varistors, electrostatic dissipative coating, and catalysts for liquid phase hydrogenation. The coated nano zinc oxide market share will witness significant growth of 14.1% CAGR during forecast time spell. Coatings play varied roles such as surface stabilizer, growth modifier, and reducing agent. It enhances the performance characteristics of nano zinc oxide. Materials such as polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP), silicon oil, oleic acid, amino acid, stearic acid, mineral oil, polyacrylic acid, alumina, copper, silane etc are commonly used as coupling agents, to coat nano zinc oxide particles.

Superior Characteristics of Nano Zinc Oxide

Zinc oxide is a multifunctional material with unique chemical and physical attributes, such as paramagnetic nature, chemical stability, broad range of radiation absorption, and high photostability. Nano zinc oxide particles are used in personal care products, paints & coatings, electronics and textiles, in substantial quantities. Personal care products made up for almost half the total demand share owing to the superior properties of the product including reactivity, persistence or bioavailability. The global cosmetic products market was valued at USD 460 billion in 2014 and is estimated to reach USD 675 billion in 2020. ZnO is used in many applications including photo catalysts electronics, optoelectronics, pharmaceutical, sensors, lasers etc. Superior mechanical properties including high surface to volume ratio along with quantum size effect will proliferate the nano zinc oxide market demand in the projected timeframe.

Nano zinc oxide is an ideal material for many optoelectronic applications such as ultraviolet lasers, thin film transistors, light emitting diode etc. Its characteristics can also be improved by doping, changing the chemical composition, size, shape, as well as surface area.
