From January to September of 2020, the comprehensive output of the whole industry reached about 2.4 million tons, and the total output for the year is expected to reach about 3.4 million tons, an increase of 4.0% year-on-year
While the domestic market environment is gradually improving, the export data also maintains a good momentum. From January to August 2020, the cumulative export volume of titanium dioxide was close to 780,000 tons, a significant year-on-year increase of 18.36%. It is expected that the total export volume for the year will exceed 1.2 million tons, setting a new historical record. To be sure, the export to the international market is still a very important factor supporting the prosperity of titanium dioxide in the latter part of this year and in the future.
As the price of titanium ore continues to run at a high level, the current price of titanium ore in Panxi has reached 298 usd/ton (EXW & not VAT), causing the production costs of major domestic titanium dioxide producers to continue to increase, forcing titanium dioxide producers to continuously adjust their Product prices, coupled with the renewed large-scale outbreak of the global new crown virus, has caused overseas shipping prices to continue to skyrocket, which has caused the domestic titanium dioxide CIF prices to continue to rise, further reducing the price gap with international titanium dioxide suppliers. In addition, due to RMB since the second half of this year Continued appreciation, these reasons have had a certain impact on the export of titanium dioxide in early 2021, so we remain cautious about the export situation in early 2021.
- The supply of domestic titanium dioxide manufacturers is still very tight, basically every one has no inventory, and the supply to first-level agents has also been reduced by 20%-30%. Now, the big manufactures are raising funds for purchases.

The market supply of rutile titanium dioxide is very tight, and the supply of anatase titanium dioxide is very sufficient, but the sales of anatase titanium dioxide are not optimistic due to the decrease in terminal applications. The current price of rutile titanium dioxide is between 2290usd/ton and 2450usd/ton. The price of anatase titanium dioxide is 1985usd/ton.
The orders for rutile titanium dioxide products received by various domestic titanium dioxide suppliers are basically at the end of December, while the titanium dioxide inventories of titanium dioxide manufacturers are very tight, and the inventory is basically maintained at about one month.
The new domestic production capacity will be gradually released in 2021 and 2022, including chlorinated titanium dioxide and sulfuric acid titanium dioxide.
