The following information on Titanium Dioxide is referenced from Wikipedia.org
The most important application areas are paints and varnishes as well as paper and plastics, which account for about 80% of the world's titanium dioxide consumption.
Other pigment applications such as printing inks, fibers, rubber, cosmetic products and food account for another 8%.
The rest is used in other applications, for instance the production of technical pure titanium, glass and glass ceramics, electrical ceramics, metal patinas, catalysts, electric conductors and chemical intermediates.
