Market demand for Titanium Dioxide has grown by approximately 4-6% on average over the last 18 months (some producers have seen demand increase by up to 9%) and prices for TiO2 pigments have increased by up to 17-18%. Further price improvement and ongoing strong demand for TiO2 is expected. In the first quarter of the year there is usually less demand for TiO2, which then grows in the second quarter. However, in 2017 there was virtually no seasonal slowdown, with demand and prices rising. Most producers continue to see strong demand across the market for specialty, differentiated and functional TiO2 grades.

TiO2 pigment inventories remain low which is supporting continued price increases. In addition to positive growth forecasts, supply has been disrupted by significant downtime events affecting numerous pigment plants.

Historically, the TiO2 market has been one of oversupply and thin profit margins even during the peak demand period from the paints and coatings sector; this has changed over the past 18 months due to significant tightening of supply and increased demand in key markets.

TiO2 is in high demand globally for numerous applications and the industry continues to be influenced by global mega-trends, such as:

  • Sustainability
  • Improved health and safety
  • Water purification
  • Cleaner air
  • Better construction
  • Improved healthcare
