MARKET UPDATES

Supply-demand of global titanium raw material will not change in 2019 (05/02/2019)
Origin: RuidowTi

Recently, the world’s major titanium raw material producers have announced the production and operation in 2018, and made preliminary predictions on the market in 2019. After reviewing the reports of several companies, it was found that each company basically showed similar conditions, and this is also the general trend of the development of titanium raw materials market in 2018 & 2019.

In 2018, the output of major titanium raw material companies in the world has not increased, and the output of many producers has declined for various reasons. Among them, several companies have experienced the end of the mine life cycle. With the decrease of remaining reserves and rich ore content, the output of some mines in 2019 will continue to decline. The development of new mines and the extension of existing mines are still in progress, but it is impossible to compensate for the decline of production in 2019, which in turn will affect the global supply of titanium raw materials.

Ruidao believes that the high total imports of titanium concentrate in China in 2018 mainly reply on the low-quality titanium concentrate and middlings, and the supply of high-quality titanium concentrate and rutile is still relatively small. At present, the domestic market has initially reflected the trend of differentiation. It has shown that demand for high-grade raw materials is robust with firm prices and even rising. On contrast, low-quality raw materials are under sales pressure with slow sales and poor prices. Ruidao believes that this situation will continue or even further intensify in 2019.

The Global Titanium Dioxide Market (2018-2023): Increase in Demand for Lightweight Vehicles in the Automobile Industry (14/01/2019)
Origin: ResearchAndMarkets.com

The market for titanium dioxide is expected to register a moderate CAGR during the forecast period, 2018 to 2023. This growth is primarily driven by the rapidly growing demand for paints & coatings and increase in demand for lightweight vehicles in the automobile industry.

Lightweight plastics are in high demand in the automotive industry due to their competitive pricing, style, reliability, strength, and safety. Plastic components weigh almost 50% lighter than similar components made from traditional materials, thus providing 25%-35% improvement in fuel efficiency, which is a key factor in the automotive and transportation industry. Every 10% reduction in the vehicle weight is estimated to result in a 5% to 7% reduction in fuel usage.

Polycarbonates are the most widely used lightweight plastic material to replace the traditional materials such as bronze, stainless steel, cast iron and ceramics in the automotive industry. Polycarbonates are characterized by their low scratch resistance, which makes it unfeasible for its usage in automotive applications. However, by the addition of titanium dioxide to these plastics, their scratch resistance, light resistance, heat resistance, and weather resistance is rapidly increased making them feasible for use in automotive applications.

The global automotive industry has registered a growth of 2.36% Y-o-Y in 2017 over 2016, reaching a total of 97,302,534 vehicles. Currently, to manufacture a typical four-wheel vehicle, 10 kgs of polycarbonate is used in various forms. With polycarbonate expected to replace conventional materials in the aforementioned industry, the demand for titanium dioxide is expected to grow at a rapid pace in the coming years.
