Global Zinc Oxide Market: Overview
Zinc oxide (ZnO) is a white solid inorganic powder. It is insoluble in water and is non-flammable. The primary elements are strongly attached to each other to combine, which further form a cluster in normal ambiance. Zinc oxide is primarily found as zincite in nature and further after various processes zinc oxide is extracted. Zinc Oxide is also known for its unique physiochemical characteristics such as catalytic, anti-corrosive, antifungal, anti-bacterial and UV filtering properties.
Global Zinc Oxide Market: Segmentation
The global zinc oxide market is broadly segmented in various end-user industries such as rubber, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, agricultural, personal care, ceramics, and many others from which rubber industry dominates the global zinc oxide market in terms of demand. Further, based on applications, the global zinc oxide market is categorized as additive in plastic, glass, paints, lubricant, adhesive, and so on.
