TThe Index of Titanium dioxide industry and price trend
Facts and opinions:
Titanium dioxide (titanium dioxide), titanium dioxide is the main
component of titanium dioxide (TiO2). The production process of titanium
dioxide has two process routes: sulfuric acid method and chloride
method. It has important applications in coatings, inks, papermaking,
plastics and rubber, chemical fiber, ceramics and other industries.
The coating industry is the largest application industry of titanium
dioxide, accounting for more than 60%. Coatings can be mainly used in
downstream industries such as construction (real estate), woodware
(decoration), automobiles and ships, among which the real estate sector
is the most widely used. The plastics industry is the second largest
application industry of titanium dioxide. Titanium dioxide can improve
the heat resistance, light resistance and weather resistance of plastic
products. The paper industry is the third largest application industry
of titanium dioxide. Decorative paper and banknotes with high
requirements for paper thinness, brightness and anti-aging must be added
with titanium dioxide.
In 2020, the comprehensive output of my country's titanium dioxide and
related products will be 3.512 million tons, of which rutile titanium
dioxide is 2.856 million tons, accounting for 81.31%; anatase titanium
dioxide is 538,000 tons, accounting for 15.33%; rutile titanium dioxide
The production of white powder products has occupied a dominant position
in the industry.
The titanium dioxide concept stock index has risen significantly since
2020, and has maintained a considerable strength along with the increase
in prices. Industrial consumption is highly related to real estate and
home improvement. Based on the completion data of real estate, the
demand for titanium dioxide is expected to slow down in the future.
