In Feb. 2015, influenced by the Chinese Lunar New Year, China's export volume and import volume of TiO2 both slid down, narrowing down the gap from 38,138 tonnes in Jan. 2015 to 32,130 tonnes. Besides, the gap between export price and import price also shrank from USD838/t to USD770/t.
This issue pays special attention to the imports & exports, price and upstream & downstream products of TiO2. Meanwhile, the annual reports of four domestic listed TiO2 enterprises have been analyzed and predicted the growth points of the global TiO2 market in the near future.

In Feb. 2015, China's export volume and import volume of TiO2 both slid down. The fall in import volume was mainly resulted from the production suspension and reduction of downstream enterprises during the Chinese Lunar New year; the reason for the down in export volume was that export to Europe and Brazil was reduced influenced by the depreciation of Euro and Brazilian real. Meanwhile, in Feb. 2015, import volume of titanium placer and feedstock as well as the output of titanium concentrate ore declined month on month. India and Australia were the major import origins. The domestic titanium concentrate ore market was in the doldrums in Feb.

At the end of March, 2015, domestic listed TiO2 enterprises released their 201 4 annual reports in succession. The performance of four listed enterprises were analyzed and all these enterprises' profits were improved thank to the growths in gross profit margins. Since March, 2015 to April 2015, the domestic TiO 2 price presented an upward trend. However, unlike the past, the latest wave of price increases was not led by leading companies, but by many medium-sized companies instead. Many medium-sized TiO2 manufacturers have improved their competitiveness through mergers and acquisitions and capacity expansions.

This report also briefly analyzes the influence of the Russian TiO2 market to China's export of TiO2 and the influence of the dropping imported titanium ore price to the domestic titanium ore industry.

The RMB/USD exchange rate in this issue is USD1 .00=RMB6.1434 on 1 April., 2015, sourced from the People's Bank of China. All the prices mentioned in this newsletter include the VAT unless otherwise specified.
