Bismuth oxychloride is used as a pigment in the paints and cosmetic industries. It is an organic compound. It is primarily used in many powders which are referred as ‘mineral makeup’. Due to its large plate-like structure, it is mostly used in powder foundation, bronzer, blush, and eye shadow. The plate-like structure of bismuth oxychloride provides a light wave interference effect to it. Bismuth oxychloride is rarely found in nature. It is produced by mixing bismuth which is a by-product of copper and lead metal refining with chloride and water. It has a pearlescent appearance and distinct shimmery and white fine powder texture which suits and sets well on the skin.

Hence, it is majorly used in cosmetic products. It is a color additive and hence is used in many products like inks, drugs, automotive paints, and coatings. Bismuth oxychloride is used in many end-user industries like pharmaceutical, personal care, and automotive industries.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

  • Many industries such as automotive, pharmaceutical, oil & gas, paints & coatings were shut down at the time of COVID-19 which decreases the demand for bismuth oxychloride market.
  • The demand for electric vehicles decreased due to the outbreak of COVID-19 as the decline of the electric vehicle sale also affected the bismuth oxychloride market.
  • The demand for cosmetic products decreased due to the outbreak of COVID-19 due to the decline of the cosmetic industry.
  • The global supply chain was disrupted and the demand for bismuth oxychloride decreased in many countries.

Top Impacting Factors

A satin, rich, luster, and luxurious touch is provided by bismuth oxychloride to any metallic and non-metallic surface. Hence, it is used in the paints and coating industry. The growth of the paints and coating industries will drive the growth of the bismuth oxychloride market. As the prices of petrol and diesel are rising, the demand for electric vehicles is increasing. The countries are trying to reduce carbon emission. Bismuth oxychloride is widely used in automotive industries for paintings. An increase in electric vehicles and other body parts will boost the growth of bismuth oxychloride in the automotive market. Bismuth oxychloride is used as a pigment or plastic additive in the production of plastic materials such as plastic sheets, furniture, extruder masses, injection molding, and toys for a smooth surface. It is also used in synthetic fibers, hard wax sealants, translucent plastic molding compounds, and solvent-based and water-soluble paints to give a glossy effect. The demand for plastic materials in many industrial applications and the automotive industry is increasing. This will drive the growth of the bismuth oxychloride market. The herbal alternative of bismuth oxychloride is Xanthohumol which is used in many products such as sunscreen creams, shampoos, and moisturizer creams. Consumers are using herbal alternatives and medicinal products to avoid the side effect of bismuth oxychloride in cosmetics. This factor can restrain the growth of the bismuth oxychloride market. The cosmetic companies claim that bismuth oxychloride is natural and better on the skin than talc. But the journal which was published by Auctores Online says that talc is more unadulterated, pure, and natural than bismuth oxychloride. Due to the molecular crystalline shape of bismuth oxychloride, it causes acne flare-ups and skin irritation. After using bismuth oxychloride products many have experienced itching. This can restrain the growth of the bismuth oxychloride market.
