Our titanium dioxide industry began in the 1950s.
Titanium dioxide is mainly composed of white pigment of titanium dioxide. Titanium dioxide is a polycrystalline compound particle in a regular arrangement, a lattice structure. With the continuous development of titanium dioxide industry, more and more brand awareness by humans, the data show that China’s total production capacity of titanium dioxide accounts for 30% of the world, is the world’s largest producer of titanium dioxide, titanium dioxide 2011 national total capacity of about 2.6 million tons.
In addition, China has become the world’s largest consumer of titanium dioxide, 1999-2011, the consumption of titanium dioxide from 248,000 tons / year growth to 165 million tons / year, the annual compound growth rate of 17.11%, far exceeding the GDP growth speed.
Using GR composite titanium dioxide pigment in the coating system can be restricted with the titanium dioxide obtained the same or similar performance; GR composite titanium white pigment widely used in paint systems, improve coating performance, reduced significantly the cost of materials In 2011 China’s total import and export of titanium dioxide industry was $ 1.858 billion, of which imports amounted to $ 704 million, an increase of 9.22%; exports of $ 1.155 billion, an increase of 122.58 percent; in 2011 the first trade surplus in international trade of titanium dioxide, favorable balance of $ 451 million in 2011, total imports of titanium dioxide in 20 million tons, representing a decrease of 6.9 million tons, an increase of -25.65%; the total amount of titanium dioxide export of 38 million tons, an increase over the previous year 11.4 million tons, an increase of 42.86%.Net exports amounted to 180,000 tons. This suggests that the quality of domestic titanium dioxide has increased, applications also increased, to meet the needs of most of the domestic downstream products, in part replace imported products, but also increased the export volume.
So in this case, how to tell the true from the false titanium dioxide is extremely important.
