  • Report Description
  • Summary

Zinc (Zn) is a low-melting metal belonging to group 12 of the periodic table, which is lustrous bluish-white in appearance. It is brittle and crystalline at ordinary temperatures, but it becomes ductile and malleable when heated between 110°C and 150°C. Zinc chemicals such as zinc carbonate, zinc chloride, zinc oxide, zinc sulfate are widely used in industrial applications. Zinc oxide is an essential preliminary material used to produce other zinc compounds including zinc phosphate, zinc stearate, zinc chromate, zinc sulphate, zinc octoate, zinc naphthenate, zinc chloride, zinc acetate etc. It has exceptional chemical and physical properties, such as high electrochemical coupling coefficient, high chemical stability, extensive range of radiation absorption and high photostability. Moreover, because of its hardness, rigidity and piezoelectric constant it is an important material in the ceramics manufacturing.

Zinc Chemicals Market Outlook

The global zinc chemicals market has gained remarkable growth owing to increasing demand of tire & rubber products in emerging countries and high demand in chemical industry. Moreover, new product launches and their expanding application areas coupled with favourable reimbursement policies are fuelling the market growth.  Also, increasing use of zinc chemicals in agricultural industry and surging R&D activities are some of the opportunities which are expected to fuel the growth of this market in coming years. There has been significant increase in research & development events to upsurge the use of zinc chemicals in various expanded sectors, such as electronic, food & pharmaceuticals etc. However, the global zinc oxide market is hampered by rising inventory costs and new rubber standards imposed in china.


Zinc Chemicals Market Segmental Overview

The report analyses the global zinc chemicals market based on type, application and geography. 

Zinc Chemicals Market by Type 

Based on type, the market is segmented into zinc carbonate, zinc chloride, zinc oxide, zinc sulfate and others. Among all types, the zinc sulfate accounted for the largest market share of the zinc chemicals market in 2017. This growth is attributed to increasing use of zinc sulfate as a fertilizer additive for preventing zinc deficiency in crops. 

Zinc Chemicals Market by Application

In addition to this, based on various application, this market is categorized into agriculture, chemicals, food & pharmaceuticals, glass & ceramics, paint & coatings, rubber compounding, textiles and others. Among these, the rubber compounding segment accounted for the largest share in 2017. Whereas, the textile application is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, due to surging textile industries globally. 

Zinc Chemicals Market by Geography 

By geography, the global zinc chemicals market is studied across the countries of key regions such as, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and rest of the world regions which includes Latin America and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific accounted for the largest market share in 2017, followed by North America. In Europe, the use of zinc chemicals for cosmetic industry is expected to account for favourable growth. In addition to this, the Asia-Pacific region is anticipated to grow at a lucrative growth rate during the forecast period. Several original equipment manufacturers are shifting their manufacturing facilities to APAC countries due to factors such as availability of land, low transportation costs, and less stringent government standards. Increasing income and purchasing power in the developing countries of APAC and ROW are attracting high investments in the automotive, construction, and chemical sectors. These growing industries are anticipated to fuel the demand for zinc chemicals during the forecast period. Furthermore, the zinc chemicals manufacturing companies have opportunities to capitalize on the growth of developing markets such as Japan, South Africa, and India. These countries are likely to spend heavily on automobiles, paints and coatings, and building and construction, thus subsequently driving the market growth.
