Titanium is known as an all-purpose metal with various characteristics such as low density, high strength and corrosion resistance. Titanium is widely used in the fields of aerospace, chemical, marine, and offshore engineering. In recent years, the demand for titanium in aerospace, medical, chemical and auto parts industries is on the rise. Among them, titanium dioxide (TiO2) manufacturing is the industry that consumes the most titanium ore in China.

According to the publisher's analysis, China needs to import a large amount of titanium ore every year because of its low reserves of high-quality titanium ore. In 2021, China's titanium ore import volume reached 3,796,800 tons, up 26.11% year-on-year, and the import value was US$1,185 million, up 84.19% year-on-year. In 2022, due to the impact of COVID-19 epidemic, China's titanium ore import volume decreased slightly, but the import value growth rate is higher. From January to October 2022, China imported 2,850,200 tons of titanium ore, down 5.80% year-on-year, with an import value of US$1.155 billion, up 25.95% year-on-year.

The publisher's analysis, 2018-2022, the average price of China's titanium ore imports gradually increased. In 2018, the average price of China's titanium ore imports was US$175.17 per ton. From January to October 2022, the average price of China's titanium ore imports has risen to US$405.17 per ton, an increase of 33.70% year-on-year.

In 2021, China imported titanium ore from a total of 29 countries. The publisher's analysis, by import volume, Mozambique, Vietnam, Kenya, Norway and Australia are the main sources of titanium ore imports into China. Among them, Mozambique is China's largest source of titanium ore imports. In 2021, China imported 1,463,300 tons of titanium ore from Mozambique, accounting for 38.54% of the total titanium ore imports in that year, and the import value of US$428 million, accounting for 36.11% of the total import value.

China's titanium ore resources are abundant, but mostly low in titanium content, so the demand for high-grade, high-quality titanium ore can only be met through imports. The publisher expects that the scale of China's titanium ore imports is expected to continue to grow from 2023-2032.

Background research defines the range of products and industries, which proposes the key points of the research. Proper classification will help clients understand the industry and products in the report.

Secondhand material research is a necessary way to push the project into fast progress. The analyst always chooses the data source carefully. Most secondhand data they quote is sourced from an authority in a specific industry or public data source from governments, industrial associations, etc. For some new or niche fields, they also "double-check" data sources and logics before they show them to clients.

Primary research is the key to solve questions, which largely influence the research outputs. The analyst may use methods like mathematics, logical reasoning, scenario thinking, to confirm key data and make the data credible.

The data model is an important analysis method. Calculating through data models with different factors weights can guarantee the outputs objective.

The analyst optimizes the following methods and steps in executing research projects and also forms many special information gathering and processing methods.

1. Analyze the life cycle of the industry to understand the development phase and space.
2. Grasp the key indexes evaluating the market to position clients in the market and formulate development plans
3. Economic, political, social and cultural factors
4. Competitors like a mirror that reflects the overall market and also market differences.
5. Inside and outside the industry, upstream and downstream of the industry chain, show inner competitions
6. Proper estimation of the future is good guidance for strategic planning.
