Abstract Titania dioxide is the most important white pigment currently used in the world, with a total annual production capacity approaching 5 million tons. Titania pigment is used widely in paint, papermaking, plastic, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries due to its outstanding physiochemical properties. The paint industry is the largest titania pigment consumer using nearly 60% of the global pigment consumption. Statutory regulations have foreced paint users to use more environmentally-friendly coating systems, which is why water based coatings are particularly attractive.
