TZ Minerals International (TZMI) is pleased to announce the release of the 2013 edition of the Titanium Metal Annual Review.
Each year TZMI releases a suite of four reports providing a comprehensive, in depth and independent analysis of each of the sectors in the TiO2 value chain. These reports are the Titanium Feedstock Annual Review, Zircon Annual Review, TiO2 Pigment Annual Review and Titanium Metal Annual Review.
The Titanium Metal Annual Review 2013 provides a review of events and developments in the global titanium metal sector during 2012, encompassing its multiple segments.
These include (in terms of contained titanium value):
- the US$110 million titanium feedstock industry
- the US$2.94 billion titanium sponge group
- the US$5.41 billion milled products market
This review is structured to contain data presentation plus interpretation and analysis.
Titanium Metal Annual Review 2013 covers significant developments in the industry, changes to the supply and demand balance during the year, manufacture of titanium products plus an examination of end-use markets. Also included is a discussion of titanium metal production costs and an in depth examination of emerging titanium technologies.
The titanium metal industry is one of the most fragmented markets evaluated by TZMI. The world’s top 11 titanium feedstock producers provide approximately 75% of annual global output to the entire supply chain, with only approximately 6% of this actually used in titanium metal manufacture.
Seven countries currently produce titanium sponge, which accounts for the vast majority of new titanium units used to create final titanium products. China has the most titanium sponge producers (20); however, Russia is home to the world’s largest single titanium sponge manufacturing company.
Close to 90% of manufactured titanium sponge is used in the manufacture of titanium and titanium alloy products for four key end-markets: commercial aerospace, industrial applications, defence, and emerging applications.
The Titanium Metal Annual Review is an essential resource for titanium metal information and data. This report is suitable for anyone wanting to understand this evolving segment and maintain an up to date perspective of all elements of the industry, including:
- Titanium metal producers
- Mineral sands industry participants
- New or potential entrants to the industry
- Financial industry (fund managers, hedge funds, investors and potential investors)
Orders for Titanium Metal Annual Review 2013 are now being taken. For more information please visit http://www.tzmi.com or call +61 8 9359 6000.
