Domestic Chinese titanium dioxide (TiO2) prices were on the uptrend, with deals for smaller quantities of TiO2 commanding higher prices.The table below shows export prices on an FOB China basis, which were stable-to-firm week on week.
This upward climb in prices has resulted in an increase in liquidity and prominence of Chinese exports in the Asian TiO2 market. In view of this, producers and buyers alike need better visibility of Chinese Tio2 export prices in order to evaluate the impact of price volatility on material of other origins, as well as to guide them in their overall commercial decisions.
