Accoring to toodudu.com, in December 2021, China’s titanium dioxide output was 334,400 tons, a decrease of 0.39% month-on-month, a year-on-year increase of 4.72%, and a decrease of about 1,300 tons. In 2021, China’s titanium dioxide production totaled about 3.8135 million tons, an increase of 8.24% year-on-year, and the output in 2020 increased by about 290,500 tons.
In December, regional production increased and decreased. This month, some manufacturers had their installations overhauled. In addition, some manufacturers were affected by environmental protection, and the output of manufacturers declined slightly. However, the market released new production capacity, and the output of titanium dioxide in December decreased slightly compared with the previous month.
The top three regions in December output were Sichuan, Shandong, and Henan, accounting for 21%, 17%, and 13% of the total output.
In 2021, the top three regions in China’s titanium dioxide production are Sichuan, Shandong, and Anhui, accounting for 22%, 15%, and 13% of the total output; in 2021, the regional output will show an overall growth trend, and the output in some regions will decline slightly, and the output will increase the most. The region is Sichuan, an increase of 130,600 tons, followed by Henan, an increase of 54,600 tons.
The output of the chlorination method in February was 39,600 tons, an increase of 5% from the output in November. In 2021, the output of chlorinated titanium dioxide in China will be 372,700 tons, accounting for 10% of the total domestic output.
According to the incomplete statistics of Tu Duoduo, the market will release new production capacity in 2022. It is expected that the annual output will increase by 400,000-500,000 tons, and the output of titanium dioxide will continue to grow.
