Coated segment shall have considerable growth rate

Nano zinc oxide market is broadly segmented into coated and un-coated variants. In past few years, un-coated nano zinc oxide held a major share in the market. However, the coated variants of nano zinc oxide grained traction on account of enhanced functionality that it rendered to the final product, including high UV protection. Additionally, the product performed reasonably over the mentioned period. These trends governed the increased produce over the specified time period.

Sunscreen will likely to remain largest application

Nano zinc oxide is used in broad range of applications across multiple domains. Preparation of sunscreen holds the largest proportion in terms of consumption of nano zinc oxide. They are observed to provide greater UV protection function as compared to other minerals used in sunscreen and personal care products. Hence, on account of these properties, product demand was observed to increase over the mentioned period.

Asia Pacific and Latin America shall become key nano zinc oxide markets

Asia Pacific and Latin America is witnessing strong growth prospects owing to improving economic condition, increased disposable income and subsequent surge in consumption of personal care and cosmetics products. Emerging new economic power houses such as India, China and Brazil along with growing population in these two regions shall have positive impact on overall market product market demand.

Industry players enhancing their distribution capacity

Companies are taking extra efforts to enhance distribution capacity in order to penetrate into new markets and expand market share. For instance, in January 2018, Biesterfeld Spezialchemie a manufacturer of chemical additives and products announced its agreement with Grillo to distribute its zinc oxide products in Poland, Spain, Italy, UK, and France. This partnership will enable company to expand its distribution operations in Europe catering to growing market. Key players engaged in nano zinc oxide market share are BASF, Strem Chemicals Inc, NYACOL Nano Technologies Inc., Showa Denko, Sakai Chemical Industry, Meliorum Technologies Inc., Inframat Advanced Materials, and SkySpring Nanomaterials Inc.
