core tip: in 2017 (January 1 - December 31), the overall average price of titanium dioxide showed an "m" shaped trend. Taking the rutile titanium dioxide produced by sulfuric acid method with large volume in the domestic market as an example, from 15970 yuan/ton at the beginning of the year to 17155 yuan/ton at the end of the year, an increase of 7.42%, The extremely low price is 15970 yuan/ton in early January, and the extremely high price is 19850 yuan/ton in late May, with a vertical amplitude of 24.30%

[China Packaging News] in 2017 (January 1 - December 31), the overall average price of titanium dioxide showed an "m" shaped trend. Taking the rutile titanium dioxide produced by sulfuric acid method with a large volume in the domestic market as an example, from 15970 yuan/ton at the beginning of the year to 17155 yuan/ton at the end of the year, an increase of 7.42%. According to Linke, the extremely low price was 15970 yuan/ton at the beginning of January, the extremely high price was 19850 yuan/ton in late May, and the vertical amplitude was 24.30%

looking forward to 2018, industry insiders predict that with the normalization of environmental protection policies, the cost and price of raw materials will continue to rise, and at the same time, titanium dioxide enterprises have a strong willingness to increase prices. With the growth of titanium dioxide demand, domestic terminals and exports have greatly increased. The market will continue to be positive, and the titanium dioxide industry will enter a period of prosperity

Fu Yijiang, Deputy Secretary General of Titanium Dioxide Branch of China Coating Industry Association:

the market boom is optimistic and good

the price market of titanium dioxide in 2017 is OK. It has increased for half a year and decreased for half a year. Manufacturers are making money. More or less, the reality of poor demand has exports to make up for or improve. For manufacturers, it is all shipments, but domestic channels are struggling, and what can remain is the "cornerstone"

in 2018, titanium dioxide industry will continue the good boom of the previous year, and the market trend is still optimistic. At present, the demand for architectural coatings mainly comes from the decoration of new houses and the recoating of second-hand houses. According to the calculation of the market scale of the completed area of houses and the types of secondary decoration plastics in China in recent years, it is estimated that the market scale of wall coatings alone in China will exceed 130billion in the next three years. Titanium dioxide industry is also expected to continue to steadily conform to the development of the times

as the environmental protection policy becomes more and more strict, the "normal of environmental protection" makes it impossible for enterprises to take chances. While the upstream and downstream enterprises increase the investment in environmental protection, the production cost will increase, the market sales price will inevitably rise, and the rise of water and boats will be the "normal" of the market. Titanium dioxide remained stable and rose in 2018

in 2018, the "new normal" characteristics of China's titanium dioxide industry will be more obvious, and the consumption platform period and even the "inflection point" are coming, that is, "eliminate backward products", and excellent products will be the "inflection point" of the consumption platform. The market will continue to be positive. We predict that China's titanium dioxide industry will enter a period of prosperity. It is very important to enhance the confidence to adapt to and lead the new normal. Firmly establish and implement the development concept of "innovation, coordination, green, openness and sharing", strive to follow the overall requirements of "optimizing stock, guiding increment, actively reducing, and resolving structural overcapacity", and carefully grasp the policies of "the the Belt and Road" and "made in China", so as to have more development opportunities

Ni Xiaoguang, chairman of Jiangsu pan China Chemical Technology Co., Ltd.:

the market rose in twists and turns

the monthly export of titanium dioxide in 2017 was 743000 tons, with a year-on-year increase of 12.8%. Due to environmental reasons, most factories are affected, limited production and short-term shutdown. The price trend of the whole year is that it rises sharply in spring, falls back in summer, rises slightly in autumn, falls back in winter, and basically returns to the price at the beginning of the year at the end of the year. Oversupply has not improved

the market price is divided between the first tier manufacturers and the second and third tier manufacturers, and the first tier prices are strong, which is because the supply side reform plays a role in the structure of the industrial chain. Meanwhile, the cumulative monthly import volume increased by 19.26%. It shows that the growth of downstream high-end demand supports the prices of imported titanium dioxide and domestic first-line brands

in 2018, the titanium dioxide market is expected to remain in an upward cycle. At the beginning of the year, international giants raised prices to benefit exports. Domestic auxiliary materials such as sulfuric acid, flake soda and natural gas learned from the exhibition that the price doubled, and the factory cost was close to the selling price, supporting the price to rise after the spring. However, the increase of industrial capacity is greater than the growth of demand, which restricts the market. In addition, the degree of output restriction by environmental protection policies is difficult to predict. The market performance of the whole year may be subject to twists and turns

the improvement of product quality will gradually become the main theme of the titanium dioxide industry. Low emission and zero emission are the development trend of the coating industry and will become a huge demand field. Titanium dioxide products to better meet and serve customers of water-based coatings is a topic of the times and a major opportunity. Rutile titanium dioxide is used to replace imported high-end plastics, and the market prospect of rutile titanium dioxide for high-end green waterborne coatings will be broader. In particular, new titanium dioxide materials in the field of new materials, such as nano titanium dioxide photocatalytic materials and lithium titanate, a new energy cathode material, will grow, and enterprises can obtain better profits and absorb some excess capacity. Qualified enterprises should strive for upgrading and transformation, seek high-end product development, replace the market share of international first-line brands at home and abroad, seize the voice of both international and domestic markets, and drive the healthy development of the whole industry at the same time

titanium dioxide analyst Yang Xun:

there will be three factors in the price trend

according to the market logic, 2018 will also be a lot of challenges. In February, before and after the lunar new year, there is a "holiday effect" period, and the demand is not ideal. "Spring" and "golden nine silver ten" are still the favorable time points of the price market theory. The most ideal stage of the price or in the first half of the year, the month is the climbing period of the price theory, and the month is the hot and off-season, "Golden nine silver ten" accounts for the theoretical benefit, which does not rule out the active hype and practical operation of manufacturers. From the middle of the fourth quarter to the end of the year, it still returned to the stage of offsetting performance and collection, and the weakening of price hardness is common. It is estimated that the extreme price point of rutile titanium dioxide by sulfuric acid method is between yuan/ton (tax included)

there will be three X factors in the price trend in 2018: environmental protection, export and the willingness of dragon enterprises. First, under the environment of environmental protection and high-pressure, chemical manufacturers should abide by the rules. The high-pressure state in front of them will not change over the next year. It is conceivable that the production capacity of manufacturers will still be compressed, and the actual supply may be about the same as that in 2017. The actual output or about 70% of the total domestic output, and the local differentiated environmental protection measures are also unknown among the unknowns

secondly, as manufacturers pay more and more attention to international exports, international orders are still priority over domestic orders, and the total monthly export volume in 2017 was 74 Million tons, compared with 72.2% in 2016 Million tons, the total export volume remains in a higher than expected state, and may still be in a higher than expected state in 2018. Therefore, from the perspective of driving domestic delivery, exports are still booming

thirdly, the price guidance of Longqi is still an important reference index for domestic price weathervanes and other manufacturers, and the production and sales status of Longqi does not represent all manufacturers, so his personalized will is also a prelude to the trend of accelerating the domestic market to achieve major original breakthroughs. It is good to enjoy the cool under the big tree
