Launched 1993 - Now in its thirtieth year of publication

TiO2 Worldwide Update - the independent newsletter for the industry, the first and the best - was launched at the beginning of 1993 as the product of a "hands across the ocean" alliance between Artikol (of Beckenham, England) and International Business Management Associates (IBMA, of Hilton Head Island, USA). With effect from 1 January 2014, Artikol has 100% responsibility for the publication of and copyright in TiO2 Worldwide Update.

Reg Adams (of Artikol) is the editor of TiO2 Worldwide Update, bringing to this role the benefit of more than 40 years' experience of analysing and writing about TiO2 and related topics. The newsletter does much more than simply collate the news, it also provides strategic comments on and penetrating insights into the key issues facing the industry and individual industry participants.

TiO2 Worldwide Update carries no advertising and typically runs to 50-80 pages per issue (A4/B4-size pages). We aim to provide detailed and comprehensive coverage of all news and developments affecting national and international TiO2 pigment, raw material and end-user industries (including paints, plastics, paper, printing inks, rubber, textiles, cosmetics, et al.).
