Rapid Price Escalation Awaits Titanium Dioxide Market during 2012 According to Merchant Research & Consulting Ltd.

25 May 2011 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Titanium dioxide is a key ingredient in automobile paint production and currently is in short supply. As the demand for cars and other consumer goods increases so does the demand for titanium dioxide. The global titanium dioxide sector ended 2010 with prices soaring through the market. 2011 gains are reported to be significant as well.

Current pricing expectations are founded on low inventory levels of pigment starting paint season and poor supply brought on by scarcity of investment for several years. Such tight conditions on titanium dioxide market would lead to rapid price escalation during 2012 and likely 2013. Over the next several years titanium dioxide producers and feedstock suppliers will escalate margins in 2011 thereby by much controlling the pricing balance in the value chain.
