The worldwide zinc oxide market is predicted to touch USD 4,946.26 million at a 5.85% CAGR over the forecast period (2020-2027), as per the latest Market Research Future (MRFR) report. Zinc oxide is a white, powdery inorganic chemical compound that is composed of zinc and oxygen. Also known as zinc white or calamine, it is obtained through three processes- wet process, direct, and indirect process. Some of its common examples include makeup and foot powders. In the form of an ointment, it is used in sun protection products and diaper rash products.
Zinc oxide has deodorant-like and antibacterial properties that make it ideal for toiletries and medical products. Moreover, it is widely used in vitamin supplements, fertilizers, and animal feed. Its use does not end here. Zinc oxide serves as a catalyst in the chemical industry as well as used as a corrosion inhibitor and in paints for mildew control. In recent times, zinc oxide has transcended to use in glass and ceramic compositions, concrete use, and also cigarette filters.
Various factors are propelling thezinc oxide marketgrowth. These factors, in accordance with the MRFR report, include the growing use in electronic items, semiconductors, and the rubber industry, burgeoning demand in personal care, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics industry, and government approval to use zinc oxide in beauty products.
