2014-04-17 09:47:02 - TiO2 China Monthly Report 1308 - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
As a fundamental chemical material, TiO2 is widely used in coatings, plastic and decor paper industries, and thus its consumption is closely related to the development of these downstream industries and subjected to the domestic infrastructure construction. However, after more than three decades of rapid growth, China has largely met the citizens´ materials needs such as in clothing, food and transportation, which urges China´s economy to transform from investment led to a more sustainable and innovative one, and thus brings low demand growth to many fields including the TiO2 industry in the future.
In June 2013, domestic TiO2 import volume declined massively after consecutive growth in several months, while TiO2 exports was still in a stalemate. Besides, the price gap between
the imported TiO2 and domestic TiO2 enlarged after the average import price edged up 0.29% while average export price declined by 2.86% MoM. Followed with the consecutive decline of TiO2 price, producers delivered disappointing financial performance in H1 2013 and some even would like to strip their TiO2 business due to low growth perspective for TiO2 demand. Titanium feedstock producers dealt with the weak market by reducing production to cut loss. Downstream decor paper producers enjoyed enviable profit growth from the decline of TiO2 price, while the plastic industry faced pressure of rising cost and the world coating industry stumbled.
