Rutile is primarily composed of titanium dioxide. Synthetic rutile is produced from naturally-occurring ilmenite, which is a complex oxide of iron. Synthetic rutile is used as a byproduct of titanium dioxide. Synthetic rutile can be made of different colors by the doping method. Synthetic rutile, which has a relatively high titanium dioxide content and contains low levels of contaminants that affect the chlorination process, is also used in the pigment industry. It can be produced with varying degrees of purity. Variation in the quantity and type of impurity present depends on the source of ilmenite, as well as the method of extraction. Characteristically, synthetic rutile contains aluminum and ferrous impurities, which are common alloying additions for many commercial titanium alloys, reducing the dependence on costly master alloys further downstream. The synthetic rutile market varies as per the purity grade and application. Pigment companies have replaced natural rutile with the synthetic one. The production of synthetic rutile is regarded as more ethical and economical and is being increasingly adopted in the end-use industry.

Synthetic Rutile Market: Market Dynamics

The global upswing in economic activity is projected to rise substantially in the forthcoming years. The growth of the manufacturing sector across the world is translating into an increase in the global growth momentum, which is expected to have a considerable impact on various markets. Synthetic rutile is used in many industrial applications as a pigment. With the growing demand for synthetic rutile in the paper, food, plastic, and paint & coating industry, synthetic rutile is expected to deliver positive growth over the forecast period. Industrialization in developing countries is a prominent reason behind the growth of synthetic rutile. With the growing production of titanium, synthetic rutile production is also expected to increase.

Natural rutile is not easily available. Hence, synthetic rutile is preferred. The high price associated with the extraction of natural rutile is also a significant factor for creating traction in the global synthetic rutile market.

Stringent environment regulations are expected to hamper the synthetic rutile market growth. Manufacturers will have to lessen environmental impacts by reducing the toxicity levels during rutile production.
