Titanium Ore Market – Market Overview
Titanium Ore can be defined as any mineral containing titanium in compounds and concentrations and it occurs mainly in igneous rock. Rutile and ilmenite are the two major sources of titanium ore among which ilmenite is the most preferred source for producing titanium metal after removing iron form it by chlorination process. Synthetic rutile, obtained from ilmenite through two processes namely chloride and sulphate process, is used for manufacturing titanium dioxide. Titanium ore finds application in titanium metal, pigments, coatings & lining, adhesives, engines, airframes, missiles, welding electrodes, and cosmetics & personal care products. It is widely used in the construction, automotive, and aerospace industry owing to high tensile strength, low density, and high corrosion resistance properties. The product use is increasing in biomedical applications such as surgical devices, dental implants, and bone plates.
Surging demand for white pigments from the end use industries such as paper, paints & coatings, and packaging industries is propelling the market growth. Rising influence of innovative packaging on the consumers is another factor driving the titanium ore growth. Asia Pacific accounted for the largest market share in 2017 as a result of growing industrialization and urbanization in the developing economies such as India and China. Presence of beach and sand dune deposits of ilmenite especially in India is majorly influencing the market growth in this region. For instance, V.V. Mineral is the largest manufacturer and exporter of titanium ore in terms of value in India. Flourishing automotive industry as a result of increasing spending on the automobiles coupled with rising per capita income. According to the Indian Brand Equity Foundation, overall automobiles production in India grew at around 14% year-on-year between April-February 2017-2018.
