Proven White Titanium Dioxide Pigments

Market Study: Titanium Dioxide (3rd edition)

12.11.2018 20:12:29 - Ceresana publishes new report on most important white pigments.

(live-PR.com) - The market research company Ceresana analyzed the global market for titanium dioxide (TiO2) along its whole value-added chain already for the third time. The most important natural resources for titanium dioxide are the minerals ilmenite and rutile. Ilmenite producers gain it from ore deposits or from sand that contains heavy metals. Natural rutile is formed primarily by the crystallization of


magma with high titanium and low iron contents or by the metamorphosis of titanium-bearing sediments or magmatites. Synthetic rutile and titanium slag are made from ilmenite.

Titanium Dioxide Uses

In 2017, 15 million tonnes of ilmenite, rutile, and titanium slag were processed worldwide. 60% thereof were utilized for the production of pigments. For other end products, such as technically pure titanium, electrical conductors, and chemical intermediates, 7% were utilized. The rest, 33% were used for further refinement into synthetic rutile and titanium slag.

Titanium Dioxide Pigments

While only a few countries dominate the market for these feedstocks, the processors in Asia-Pacific, North America, and Western Europe determine the demand. The titanium dioxide market report analyzes the market for titanium dioxide pigments. Asia-Pacific accounted for 46% of global demand in 2017. The most important sales markets for titanium dioxide pigments are paints & coatings with a share of 56%, followed by plastics, paper, and others.

The Study in Brief:

Chapter 1 analyzes the market for titanium dioxide feedstock: from the naturally occurring raw materials ilmenite and rutile to the intermediates titanium slag and synthetic rutile up to their applications. Information is given on revenues, capacities, trade, and production per product type. Furthermore, feedstock demand is split by the segments pigment production, other uses, and the volume processed into intermediates such as titanium slag and synthetic rutile.
Chapter 2 deals with the most important titanium dioxide market: pigments. Data are given on development of revenues, demand, and products including forecasts up to 2025.
In chapter 3, information on the market for titanium dioxide pigments is provided for 15 countries. Besides import, export, supply, and demand, utilization of pigments in the respective sales markets is analyzed as well.
Chapter 4 examines the applications of titanium dioxide pigments: paints & coatings, paper, plastics, and others. The several sales markets are thoroughly examined split by Western & Eastern Europe, North & South America, Asia-Pacific, and the Middle East / Africa. The largest countries are analyzed individually.
Chapter 5 provides profiles of the largest manufacturers of titanium dioxide pigments as well as of the producers of ilmenite, natural and synthetic rutile, and titanium slag. Extensive profiles of 73 producers are given, including Chemours, Iluka, Group DF, Kenmare, Kronos, Rio Tinto, Tronox, TiZir, and Venator.
