The Global TiO2 Pigment Producers Comparative Cost and Profitability Study 2017 update provides a detailed analysis of the TiO2 pigment manufacturing industry in 2016.
22 chloride process plants are reviewed, representing 100% of the global chloride output in 2016.
In addition, 44 sulfate process plants are 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.
