Titanium dioxide market remains stable, and prices of individual brands rise
In mid-November, the price market was slightly confused. On the one hand, the holders’ tax reforms have been changed, and companies have continued to hover since the rise in September. On the other hand, individual manufacturers have experienced shortages of goods and prices have risen slightly. The structure of the price market is still composed of high, medium and low, and it is determined by both sides of supply and demand. It is reasonable to increase or not. Since the two consecutive increases from September to October, there has been a period of more than one month of price stability in the market. After the price increase, the market’s sunny period is close to the edge, and some holders have begun to waver, and the actual finished unit price has slightly loosened, mainly due to the tax reform. The spread of products at the same level has widened. Accidents frequently occur in Jiangsu, Shandong, Henan and other regions, and strict regional safety production inspections are in progress. High pressure is always maintained before the end of October. From the supply side alone, the supply side of titanium dioxide may shrink in spot supply. Currently, East China and other regions Manufacturers have limited and stopped production operations, and anatase and special grades of titanium dioxide may be difficult to find. After more than a month of price penetration period, after the overdraft in November, the terminal will either stop production for maintenance, or digest raw material inventory. The order situation in the second half of December has slowed down. This phenomenon depends on the terminal’s stocking situation. , Generally, it may be relieved in mid to late May next year.
The domestic titanium dioxide price market has stabilized this week. Longqi will maintain a stable price. The terminal market has already digested raw material inventories. The rising market of imported titanium concentrate may support the firmness of titanium dioxide prices. In the short term, the comprehensive price of titanium dioxide may be stalemate stabilizing, and there is a possibility of upward adjustment of the niche brand products of individual manufacturers, and the actual transaction price is subject to a single negotiation.
