Though toxicity at higher concentration of nano zinc oxide may hamper the market growth in long run, the upsurge in anti-microbial coatings, UVA/B filters in sunscreens and sun protection cosmetics demand, drives the nano zinc oxide market.
Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/26/2017 -- Global Nano Zinc Oxide Market was valued at $2,099 million in 2015 and is expected to reach $7,677 million by 2022, registering a CAGR of 20.4% during the forecast period 2016 - 2022. Nano zinc oxide is a specialized nanomaterial available in the form of powders or dispersions. It is also known as oxydatum, zinci oxicum, permanent white, ketozinc or oxozinc. It exhibits novel physiochemical characteristics, such as anti-bacterial, anti-corrosive, anti-fungal, catalytic, and UV filtering properties.
The demand for nano zinc oxide has witnessed tremendous growth due to increasing consumption of nano zinc oxide in paints and coatings, cosmetics, food contact materials (such as containers for transporting food, machinery to process food, packaging materials, kitchenware and tableware, and others), electronics, textiles, and other industries. Although the nano zinc oxide industry is in its developmental stage, numerous industry players have heavily invested to develop new commercial avenues for their product offerings through strategic partnerships and collaborations. The demand for nano zinc oxide has increased due to upsurge in demand for UV-A & UV-B filters in sunscreens & cosmetics, growth in demand for antimicrobial coatings, and product approval from regulatory bodies. However, concerns regarding nano zinc toxicity when used at high concentration could hamper the market growth during the forecast period. Increase in disposable income in the emerging economies supplemented with growth in awareness among consumers regarding adverse effects of UV rays would provide significant opportunities to market players in the industry.
