The Global TiO2 Pigment Producers Comparative Cost and Profitability Study update provides a detailed analysis of the TiO2 pigment manufacturing industry for the prior year.
In the 2018 edition, 22 chloride process plants were reviewed, representing 100% of the global chloride output .
In addition, 44 sulfate individual process plants were analysed, with 21 Chinese (standard model process) plants were also analysed.
This study provides a comparative analysis of the industry, using a consistent standard methodology.
The global TiO2 pigment industry is extremely opaque, with cost and production information tightly controlled by most producers, at a time when the industry is encountering significant cost pressures.
TZMI, in its position as an independent consultant to the global TiO2 industry, is well placed to make an independent assessment of plant-by-plant costs, based on many years of industry experience, combined with its detailed plant models.
Access to information in TZMI’s proprietary feedstock database, widely recognised as the best independent global source for trade and cost information, is used as the basis for the feedstock component of the Global TiO2 Pigment Producers Comparative Cost and Profitability Study.
