The Global TiO2 Pigment Industry

The Global TiO2 Pigment Industry

ISBN 0958529930

Published May 2001

295 pages, 51 tables, 70 charts, 18 chapters plus executive summary & appendices

Current price: $US 1800

This book, widely known in the industry as the "Green Book, Mach-2," was co-written and co-published by Artikol and TZMI (of Australia). It reviews supply, demand, prices and technology issues for both TiO2 feedstocks and TiO2 pigments, extensively updating material published in the "Green Book Mach-1." A new chapter is devoted to TiO2 pigment demand by end-use sector and another new chapter was devoted to TiO2 pigment demand forecasting, in particular examining the correlation between per capita TiO2 pigment consumption and per capita GDP. Raw materials for TiO2 pigment manufacture, such as chlorine, calcined petroleum coke and sulphuric acid are dealt with in more detail in a separate chapter. In addition, new chapters on TiO2 pigment plant costs and TiO2 feedstock production costs are included. Profiles are provided for 25 TiO2 pigment producers and 30 TiO2 feedstock producers. Future issues likely to be of relevance to TiO2 pigment and feedstock suppliers, together with forecasts for supply, demand and prices, are covered in a chapter entitled "Strategic outlook to 2010."

TiO2 Pigment - A Dynamic Global Industry

TiO2 Pigment: a Dynamic Global Industry

ISBN 0646321587

Published October 1997

303 pages, 37 tables, 42 charts, 15 chapters plus executive summary & appendices

Current price: $US 1500

This book represented the first fruits of collaboration between Artikol and TZMI, with Artikol contributing the data and accompanying text on TiO2 pigments, while TZMI contributed the data and accompanying text on TiO2 feedstocks. Separate chapters are devoted to factors affecting TiO2 pigment and feedstock demand, supply and prices. Production technologies for making and finishing TiO2 pigments are reviewed. In the TiO2 feedstock chapters, the geological background for titanium mineral occurrences, methods for extracting and processing minerals and technologies for upgrading ilmenite to slag and synrutile are described. Environmental matters are covered in a separate chapter. The work culminates in a set of integrated forecasts for the TiO2 pigment and feedstock sectors. In an era of rapid changes within the industry, this book was sold to most of the major participants in the industry and to many investment analysts and aspiring new entrants with options on titanium mineral deposits around the world. It became widely known within the industry as "the Green Book", underlining its status as the best reference textbook for gaining a comprehensive understanding of the complex issues surrounding TiO2 pigments and feedstocks.

World TiO2 Industry Review

World TiO2 Industry Review

Published March 1990

320 pages, 40 tables, 40 charts, 9 chapters plus executive summary

Cover price: $US 750

This book was one in a series of comprehensive industry reviews compiled by Artikol in collaboration with Chemical Matters and Fertecon. (Other books in this series covered various petrochemical sectors). The supply side of the TiO2 pigment and TiO2 feedstock sectors are described on a country-by-country basis, covering more than 60 different countries. Environmental issues are covered in some detail, with particular reference to newly emergent pollution legislation and concerns about radioactive contaminants. Data on prices is given and there is a set of forecasts on TiO2 pigment supply and demand, by region.

Titanium & Titanium Dioxide

Titanium & Titanium Dioxide

ISBN 0903199793

Published May 1984

245 pages, 18 tables, 12 charts, 12 chapters plus appendices

Cover price: $US 400

This book was one in a series of six on different metals, their ores and, where relevant, their major chemical compounds, compiled by Artikol in collaboration with the Financial Times Business Information. (Other books in this series covered steel, copper, nickel, magnesium and aluminium). The book traces the entire history of the TiO2 pigment industry from the mid-1910s and the entire history of the titanium metal industry from the mid-1940s. There is discussion of titanium mineral deposits in 40 different countries, TiO2 pigment production in 29 different countries and titanium metal production in 12 different countries. Technologies for making titanium metal and TiO2 pigment are described. Explanations are given for why titanium metal and titanium dioxide are used. Production, consumption and price data are given for TiO2 feedstocks, TiO2 pigments and titanium metal.
