TZMI’s Titanium Feedstock Producers Comparative Cost Study is now in its 15th edition.
The study continues to review cost versus revenue analysis for producers across the feedstock sector. This year a total of 29 operations have been included in the study, with three of them being included for the first time.
The study provides:
A detailed explanation of TZMI’s methodology employed to maintain consistent comparisons of operating costs across the entire titanium feedstock industry
Informed discussion about the parameters used for comparing relative competitiveness in the industry
Updated cost data for the industry from information and research garnered during the previous year
Commentary on the importance of co-product credits in the current market conditions (pig iron and zircon)
Discussion on increasing operating costs, specifically energy and mining costs
An analysis of the effect of exchange rates on producer performance
An updated titanium feedstock industry cost curve – an invaluable tool for evaluating both existing operations and measuring the potential of new projects
