Titanium dioxide market is seeing price surge. Related listed companies are beating estimates.(13/11/2018)

According to media reports, before 1 October 2018, many titanium dioxide companies issued price adjustment letters. Due to the rising prices of bulk raw materials such as ilmenite, the cost of titanium dioxide has increased significantly. The domestic price of titanium dioxide has been raised by 300 yuan/ton from now on. Internationally the price has Increased by $50/ton.

The industry believes that the peak demand season for titanium dioxide in the second half of the year is coming, due to various factors such as continuous environmental protection pressure, small capacity withdrawal, natural gas supply change, shutdown and production restriction policy, and the reduction of international titanium dioxide giants, the price of titanium dioxide will rise again.

Market update from Global Titanium Feedstock Conference 2018 (07/06/2018)

Global Titanium Feedstock Conference 2018 was held in Ningbo, Zhejiang Province, China on 24 May 2018. More than 300 representatives from the industry around the world attended this event. HTL was invited as the guest speaker to introduce the future development prospects of Wateranga Project and the company, which has caused widespread repercussions.

The titanium feedstock market has entered a new boom period since 2017. The supply and demand of titanium feedstock are both vigorous, and the price of ilmenite continues to rise. There was even a supply shortage in the second half of last year. According to statistics, in 2017, China produced a total of 3.8 million tons of ilmenite, which is a year-on-year increase of approximately 9.1%. At the same time China imported about 2.93 million tons of ilmenite, which was a 16.9% year-on-year increase. In total, the production of titanium dioxide exceeded 2.8 million tons, and the export volume exceeded 800,000 tons, both hitting a record high.

According to the conference organizer data, in 2017, China’s consumption of titanium feedstock accounted for more than 40% of the global total. With the continuous increase in the production of downstream products such as titanium dioxide and titanium sponge, it is expected that by 2020 China’s consumption of titanium feedstock will be more than 50% of the global total consumption.

Titanium – The key to the future world (22/05/2018)

With the rapid development of the automotive industry, titanium has become the industry’s favourite for its lighter but stronger character. There is no doubt that titanium is the best viable solution to reduce vehicle weight. Supposedly by switching to titanium the company Lotus has reduced the mass of an Exige S sub-frame by 36 percent, dropping it from 110 pounds to less than 71. But that’s not all, stiffness has allegedly risen by about 20 percent.

Known as the metal of the future, titanium is not only taking over the future of automotive industry, but also leading the development of technology and cutting-edge applications worldwide. HTL is interconnecting with titanium application research institution and downstream high-end manufacturing companies. It is possible for HTL to establish partnership with them in the future.
