This the second edition of CCM International's trade analysis report on titanium dioxide, covering production and trade situation from Jan. 2008 to Jun. 2009. In this edition we mainly update trade data of titanium dioxide, and the analysis and depth is similar to the first version. Compared to Q1 2009, China's export and import volume of titanium dioxide in Q2 2009 have obviously increased with economic recovery.
The first version: Jan. 2008~May 2009
China is currently the largest titanium dioxide supplier in the world, with its capacity exceeding the USA in 2008 stimulated by growing domestic demand.
With the rapid expansion of domestic titanium dioxide market in recent years, China's TiO2 output and consumption have increased rapidly, but the export has decreased greatly due to the elimination of export tax rebate since Jul.1 2007.
To stimulate domestic economic recovery, Chinese government has implemented the policy of ten industries' revitalization plans since Feb. 2009, and risen the tax rebate of many downstream products, which has indirectly promoted the demand of TiO2.
This report reveals the changes in titanium dioxide industry in 2007~Jun. 2009, with emphasis on export and import situation of titanium dioxide in China.
In this report, you can find detailed analysis for the following questions:
1. What are the capacity/output of China's top 30 manufacturers in 2009, and their product types and ore supply origin?
2. What about titanium dioxide import situation in China in 2007~Jun. 2009, including import volume, import price, origin and consumption evolution?
3. What about the performance of titanium dioxide export in China in 2007~Jun. 2009, including export volume, export price, destinations and exporter?
