Global production of titanium declines dramatically

The global production of titanium dioxide has declined dramatically in the past months. This significant drop is attributable to the production stop of two Japanese producers due to environmental issues. But most of all because Huntsman Corporation’s titanium dioxide manufacturing facility in Pori, Finland suffered a fire, stopping production at the site until repairs can be completed.

Double-digit price increases have already been announced as a result of these shortages in the market. We at AAKO have been confronted with it too, although we have fortunately selected our suppliers very carefully and therefore have plenty of available stock. And we will continue to maintain our stock of AakoSun TiO2.
