TZMI’s Titanium Feedstock Producers Comparative Cost Study is now in its 17th edition.
The study continues to review cost versus revenue analysis for producers across the feedstock sector. A total of 37 operations have been included in this study, with two new operations included for the first time and four operations re-included after restarting operations.
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
