After a number of years of price volatility, 2015 has brought steadier, lower prices to the mineral sands supply chain. However, there are tectonic shifts under way; possible consolidation of feedstock producers, the creation of more pigment focused companies, closure of pigment capacity by major producers, a lack of risk funding for new projects, China pigment consolidation, low iron ore prices influencing Chinese ilmenite supply, new environmental laws and enforcement in China.
These topics and more will be high on the agenda at the 2015 TZMI Congress.
