Global Upward annoying plastic titanium dioxide producer

Global Upward annoying plastic titanium dioxide producer

Titanium dioxide has a very powerful chemical properties
Chemical products are indispensable auxiliaries of products, with their good lightfastness and opacity, titanium dioxide industry to become the most widely used products, the British UK-based Silvergate Plastics statistics show that about 4 million per year tons of titanium dioxide is used in plastic goods.
In recent years, driven by chemical additives have been raw materials prices continued to rise, the price of titanium dioxide has become a large plastics manufacturer headache. According to statistics, in 2011, the domestic price of titanium dioxide per ton, up 3,000 yuan, or about 10%, which is rare in a few years.
Silvergate data management company, said Executive Director Chris Spooner, the first half of the global titanium dioxide industry as churn like a roller coaster ride, the frequency and extent of market fluctuations are beyond the expected range, which for downstream producers, but a bad things.
DuPont is the world’s oldest titanium dioxide, is the world’s top product quality. DuPont has several price increases during the first half of this year, it is a global company driven up followed up. According to statistics, foreign titanium dioxide price increases from January to May total more than 30%. To June, overseas titanium dioxide prices have more than 3600 U.S. dollars / ton, to the Chinese mainland terminal market sales price is as high as 33,000 yuan / ton. Even so, the international market for titanium dioxide demand is still high. Statistics show that the first half of the international giant Kronos titanium dioxide production of 275,000 tons, 103% capacity utilization, production increased by 6.6%; Huntsman Titanium Dioxide sales increased 9% year on year. Meanwhile, China’s imports fell by titanium dioxide this year, the main reason is the growth in demand for foreign titanium dioxide, titanium dioxide supply shortage.
After August, the global market supply surplus, supposedly titanium dioxide prices should go to the callback, but in early September, DuPont announced that, for Western Europe, North America and Central America, the contract price per tonne of titanium dioxide of 500 euros, while in the same day, the global lowest vendor Kronos also announced that its Western and Eastern Europe and Turkey and other regions of the customers (except with the prior has been raised outside the region) titanium dioxide prices up 500 euros. Affected, other titanium dioxide production companies chase the progressive implementation of the price, such as Cristal and Tronox announced price increases to $ 0.25 / lb. As a result, the fourth quarter of 2011, the global price of titanium dioxide per ton, up 500 euros.
China Coating Industry Association Branch of titanium dioxide industry, Tang Jie, Deputy Secretary-General: Over the past 10 years, in addition to domestic titanium dioxide production capacity outside the international market, almost no increase in capacity, while the 2008 outbreak of the global financial crisis has a lot of titanium dioxide plant closure and idle. Data show that in 2008 the global titanium dioxide production 4.942 million tons, down 5.34%. 2009 year has dropped 15%. March 2011, the Japanese earthquake has led to a titanium dioxide plant shutdowns, titanium dioxide supply has reduced by about 50,000 tons.
