    China has become the second largest country in terms of production and sales of titanium dioxide in the world. In stark contrast, the competitiveness of China's titanium dioxide industry is still low, and there are common low-tech and low-grade excess products which are worrying. To this end, China Coatings Industry Association recently held in Shanghai, "2007 Pigments in Coatings Applied Technology Seminar", industry experts around the overall upgrade of China's titanium dioxide industry, from the world's largest producer of power to the transformation of production and marketing, put forward insights .


    To improve the competitiveness of the industry as the starting point


    Yue Wangkun, secretary general of China National Coatings Industry Association believes that in 2006 China's paint and pigment industry ushered in the period of market consolidation characterized by rapid development, significant changes and outstanding difficulties.


    After years of adjustment, China's titanium dioxide industry enterprises to expand the scale of industry concentration has increased. In 2006, the national titanium dioxide production capacity was increased by 250,000 tons and the total production capacity was about 1 million tons per year. The output of titanium pigment was 860,000 tons, an increase of nearly 160,000 tons over the previous year. The output maintained a high growth rate of 25% in 2005. Titanium dioxide consumption accounted for 19% of the world total titanium dioxide consumption, an increase of 3 percentage points over the previous year; titanium dioxide exports 194,000 tons, an increase of 23.1%; annual output of titanium dioxide in more than 40,000 tons manufacturers from 1 in the previous year rose to 3, the largest production plant in Shandong Dongjia titanium dioxide production reached more than 70,000 tons, the top 10 titanium dioxide manufacturers accounted for 44.1% of the total output of titanium dioxide.


    In the meantime, progress has also been made in technological innovation in China. Titanium white enterprises generally carry out to reduce the production process of "three wastes" emissions, improve product quality for the purpose of technological transformation. Such as Sichuan Long Python Titanium companies to increase independent research and development, the creative realization of the phosphorus chemical, sulfur chemical, titanium chemical grafting, to solve the bottleneck restricting the production of titanium dioxide in China's traditional sulfuric acid method.


    However, on the whole, there is still a certain gap between domestic technologies and products compared with foreign countries. Due to the lack of high-grade domestic products, the import of titanium dioxide in China rose only in 2006, and then dropped again in 2005 to reach the level of 250,000 tons imported in 2004; the average price of import and export products was 1,920 US dollars / ton and 1403 USD / tonne, the difference between the two is US $ 517. In the face of the gap between the technology and product structure existing in foreign titanium dioxide enterprises, China's titanium dioxide enterprises must enhance their urgency and initiative. They should fully grasp the trend of future development and changes, enhance their competitiveness in the industry and strengthen their own practice , Improve the overall strength of enterprises.


    Focus on resources and environmental protection


    With the rapid development of pigment industry in our country, the consumption of resources has been constantly increasing, and the contradiction of resource shortage has become increasingly acute. The most prominent one is the insufficient allocation of titanium resources. It is estimated that during the "Eleventh Five-year" period, China's annual output of titanium dioxide will exceed 1.5 million tons, by which time more than 2 million tons of titanium concentrate and a considerable amount of high-titanium slag will be required.


    Qu Ying, a senior engineer of China Petroleum and Chemical Industry Planning Institute, pointed out that although China is one of the countries with the most abundant titanium resources in the world, over 90% of China's ilmenite is symbiotic rock and its quality is low with complicated composition. Difficulties and efficient use of high grade titanium resources are limited. With China's current scale and technological level of titanium mining, titanium dioxide, both the quantity and quality far can not meet the needs of the development of titanium dioxide industry. Reporter learned from the seminar last year, China Coating Industry Association, together with the relevant departments, through unremitting efforts, and finally applied to the high titanium slag tariff number, to solve the previous import of high titanium slag need to pay 4.5% to 6.5% tariff problems. From January 1 this year, China's imports of high-titanium slag using the new tariff number, and the implementation of zero tariffs.
