The properties of lithopone for pigmentation of natural & synthetic elastomers is another aspect demonstrating a rise in its demand across the rubber industry to enhance the rheological performance in rubber blends. Hence, the escalation in rubber production shall also pave the way for Global Lithopone Market expansion and generate lucrative opportunities for the leading players to increase their production & distribution capabilities and cater to the rising needs globally.

Market Segmentation

Based on Product:

  • Lithopone 28%
  • Lithopone 30%
  • Lithopone 60%

Here, Lithopone 28% is anticipated to dominate the Global Lithopone Market with the largest share during the forecast period. It owes principally to 28% of zinc content in the form of zinc sulfide. This product is an organically coated white pigment that is based on a co-precipitated zinc sulfide/barium sulfate, exhibiting properties like low binder requirement, exceptional dispensability, minimal abrasiveness, and natural hue, among others. Hence, these elements find extensive application across industries like rubber & paper. 

On the other hand, Lithopone 60% is projected to demonstrate the fastest growth in the Global Lithopone Market and contribute significantly to the overall expansion in the coming years. In this element, zinc sulfide is found in 60% content and offers properties like resistance improvement against the light. Hence, it finds extensive utilization in industries like rubber & caters to the overall growth of the Global Lithopone Market through 2027.
