Monthly Overview of China Titanium Dioxide Market (August 1- August 31)


In the beginning of this month, Sichuan Lomon announced a price rise of rutile titanium dioxide products at ¥500/tonne for domestic customers, ¥300/tonne for resellers, $50/tonne for foreign customers effective immediately. This price increase trend was followed by more than 20 TiO2 producers including Billions, Ningbo Xinfu, Jinpu Titanium, Annada, and some producers of anatase titanium dioxide.China TiO2 market

Influenced by the strict environment inspection and the launch of G20 Summit, the operation rate of domestic titanium dioxide market this month has decreased obviously. In the meantime, the high price level of the raw materials and the tight spot supply pushed most TiO2 producers to sell inventories at higher prices.

Shandong Doguide even raised the prices of titanium dioxide twice in the last month, which led the tenth price hike for the domestic titanium dioxide market since the beginning of 2016. However, due to the weak domestic demand, most producers have not followed up the price rise, but to positively settle down the price rise that was made several months earlier. OKCHEM believes that although most producers are eager to follow up the price rise trend, they will make further movements at the beginning of September.

The main contract prices of rutile titanium dioxide this month are raised up to CNY11800-13500/tonne ($1810-2071). But for anatase titanium dioxide, the main contract prices are kept at CNY 8800-9800/tonne ($1350-1503) with a lower power in price execution and bigger selling pressure due to the lack of export advantages and decreasing domestic demands.

In the second half of this month, some major producers of TiO2 such as Tronox, and Cristal, raised their titanium dioxide prices that have given advantages to China titanium dioxide market. The market is more confident on the global titanium dioxide market for the coming September. Most producers are enthusiastic about the future of domestic TiO2 market, which supports the former raised prices being settled down fluently.
