In July, the export condition of TiO2 reversed, with export volume gaining a sharp MoM growth. However, whether the rebound will continue is still full of uncertainty. Domestic TiO2 price kept relatively stable in recent three months while most domestic TiO2 producers met declining profit margin and reduced revenue in H1 2013.
Domestic TiO2 production in H1 2013 also decreased, reaching about 925,000 tonnes with a YoY fall of 1.28%. On the condition that downstream demand keeps weakening, the production of TiO2 is expected to further cut to avoid imbalance between supply and demand and allow TiO2 price increase, and thus certain profit for domestic TiO2 producers can be guaranteed.
