Titanium dioxide prises rose slowly with the raw materials prices' effect

2012.03.13   15:47

Since DuPont announced the increase of the prices of the titanium dioxide which was sold in Western,Central Europe and North Africa,the amount of the increase was 200 euros/ton (about 260 U.S. dollars/ton),the measure would come into effect on February 1th,2012;another titanium dioxide production giant,the Cristal Global,also issued on December 20th,to increase 15 cents per pound (U.S. $ 330/t) of all the anatase and rutile titanium dioxide products sold in North America,this price would take effect since January 1th,2012;on December 21th,the U.S manufacturer Tronox announced the increase of the titanium dioxide price by 15 cents/lb (about 330 U.S. dollars/ton).It is reported that since this year,the Europe and the United States titanium dioxide manufacturing giants including the Dupont Titanium Technology, have raised the price several times.

As the result of the continuing shortages of the titanium concentrate in the domestic industry,the titanium concentrates prices rising is the main factor to promote the titanium dioxide market.Since last November,the factory price of the rutile titanium dioxide which made of sulfuric acid method has rised to the current 20500 yuan/ton from 16000 yuan/tons,and the rate of increase is higher than 25%.Which directly leads to the titanium dioxide prices go up,while the downstream building materials industry demands keep weak and fatigued,are the main negative factors affecting the future trend of the titanium dioxide.
