From January to March, the domestic and foreign markets sent continuous letters to increase, driving the market atmosphere to improve. In addition, the prices of raw materials titanium ore and sulfuric acid rose, and the cost support of titanium dioxide prices was strong. In the second quarter, the market price of titanium dioxide was weak, and the price of rutile titanium dioxide at the end of the quarter fell by 850 yuan / ton compared with that at the beginning of the quarter. The price of anatase titanium dioxide at the end of the season has decreased by 400 yuan / ton compared with that at the beginning of the season.

According to statistics, the cumulative output of titanium dioxide in China from January to may 2022 was about 1.7214 million tons, an increase of 8.6% over the same period last year, and the output increased by about 136300 tons. In March, the titanium dioxide market was affected by public health events. Many manufacturers reduced production and production, and the market started to decline.

From January to may, the top three countries for titanium dioxide export are India, Belgium and Brazil, accounting for 12%, 7% and 6% respectively.

At the same time, the market has also released new production capacity of enterprises, and the pressure of enterprises is still large. The recovery of downstream market demand is less than expected, and the terminal cost pressure is greater. With the support of the cost side, the low-level downward space of titanium dioxide has been limited. Most manufacturers are waiting for the latest price policy of Longqi in July.
