Proven White Pigments: Third Ceresana Report on the Global Market for Titanium Dioxide
The market research company Ceresana analyzed the global market for titanium dioxide (TiO2) along its whole value-added chain already for the third time. The most important natural resources for titanium dioxide are the minerals ilmenite and rutile. Ilmenite producers gain it from ore deposits or from sand that contains heavy metals. Natural rutile is formed primarily by the crystallization of magma with high titanium and low iron contents or by the metamorphosis of titanium-bearing sediments or magmatites. Synthetic rutile and titanium slag are made from ilmenite. Titanium Dioxide Uses In 2017, 15 million tonnes of ilmenite, rutile, and titanium slag were processed worldwide. 60% thereof were utilized for the production of pigments. For other end products, such as technically pure titanium, electrical conductors, and chemical intermediates, 7% were utilized. The rest, 33% were used for further refinement into synthetic rutile and titanium slag. Titanium Dioxide Pigments While only a few ...
