Global Industry Analysis Report on Zinc Oxide Nanoparticles

Published on May 2, 2014 at 8:00 AM

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "The Global Market for Zinc Oxide Nanoparticles" report to their offering.

The market for zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticles continues to grow, driven mainly by increasing demand for high SPF cosmetics and sunscreens. It acts as a transparent UV absorber offering long-term, broad band protection (UVA and UVB). ZnO nanoparticles are also being used for their anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-corrosion and catalytic properties in industries such as textiles, paints and coatings and electronics. Yearly production has grown to over 30,000 tons/year.

The report "The Global Market for Zinc Oxide Nanoparticles" covers the following applications:

High volume applications

  • UV filters in cosmetic emollients used for sunscreen, skincare, and pharmaceutical formulations.
  • UV-protection of e. g. lacquer films and polymer surfaces.
  • Antimicrobial and bacteriostatic agent used in deodorant, medical and sanitary materials, glass, ceramic and self-cleaning materials.

Low volume applications

  • Infrared absorbent.
  • UV-protective textiles.
  • Transparent conductive films in light-emitting diodes (LEDs).
  • Solar cells.

Novel applications

  • Transparent conductive thin-films in blue laser diodes, solar cells and liquid crystal displays.
  • Sensors.
  • Catalysis.
