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 fil
