It is expected that 2011 will usher in a new tide of global titanium dioxide

as overseas titanium dioxide giants compete to raise prices, the price of domestic titanium dioxide soars, and now it is entering a stage of supply exceeding demand. Industry insiders predict that 2011 will usher in a new round of price rise of titanium dioxide in the world

according to the data, titanium dioxide has increased by more than 12.1% in the past two weeks. The staff of Jiangxi Aote company said that at present, the factory quotation of titanium dioxide of the company is more than 15200 yuan/ton (rutile type), and the inventory is limited

insiders expect that the price of titanium dioxide will continue to rise in 2011 for three reasons. Fixtures are accessories. First of all, they are in the peak season of titanium dioxide market, and the market supply is quite tight, such as the annealing of PC shaped products. People from Aote company said that the supply was tight due to energy conservation and emission reduction. Second, the supply of raw materials is insufficient and the price rises. The quotation of Vietnam's imported titanium concentrate manufacturers has reached 1100-1150 yuan/ton. It is expected that the situation that titanium dioxide production capacity cannot be smoothly expanded will continue. Third, the price rise of major raw materials such as sulfuric acid and titanium slag will increase the cost of titanium dioxide and the price will rise sharply. A person in charge of a coating company said that the global coating market is short of raw materials and the pigment market is in short supply, while the price of titanium dioxide in China is relatively low, so it is quite popular with international buyers, and the export volume has increased significantly this year

overseas titanium dioxide production giants have announced price increases in 2011. KONOS announced that from January 1, 2011, KONOS will raise the price of titanium dioxide of all grades in Europe by 200 to 250 euros/ton; Titanium dioxide prices in Asia Pacific, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa will be increased by $200/ton. Huntsman said that the price of titanium dioxide would be increased from January 1 next year or according to the contract license date. The euro area would be increased by 150 euros per ton, the North American market would be increased by 8 cents/pound (176 dollars/ton), the Asia Pacific region would be increased by 150 dollars/ton, and Africa, Latin America and the Middle East would be increased by 200 dollars/ton. American tenor company said that from January 1st, 2011, the price may be increased according to the contract, among which the price per metric ton of support devices placed in Latin America increased by $200; In Europe, the Middle East and Africa, the price per metric ton has increased by 175 euros or 200 US dollars. Although the reports so far are encouraging, the additional increase can be determined according to the local application; The price per metric ton in the Asia Pacific region increased by $200
