The hottest inorganic pigments in the future will

  • Detail

At present, China is already the world's largest producer of iron oxide, lithopone and chromium pigments, and the output of titanium dioxide is second only to the United States

in recent years, the prices of energy and raw materials have risen. At the same time, titanium dioxide in developed countries in the world has entered the mature stage of product life cycle. It is expected that the average annual growth rate of demand in the next few years will be only 1.4%, and it is unlikely to increase investment. This makes multinational companies place their hopes for the future development of titanium dioxide in Asia, especially in China, where titanium dioxide production has begun to transfer. The large-scale chlorinated titanium dioxide projects constructed by huntsman in Ningbo, DuPont in Dongying, Shandong, and Australian manufacturers in Yingkou, Liaoning will be completed and put into operation around 2010. According to the existing domestic and foreign-funded expansion and new construction plans and projects under construction, it is expected that China's titanium dioxide production capacity will increase by 300000 tons before 2008 and about 500000 tons around 2010. At that time, China's titanium dioxide production capacity will reach about 1.6 million tons/year, which is expected to surpass the United States and become the world's largest titanium dioxide producer. The production capacity of titanium dioxide by chlorination process will increase significantly, and the product quality will be greatly improved. China is expected to become a truly world inorganic pigment manufacturing center

China's iron oxide industry also has the same prospect, and foreign famous iron oxide manufacturers are also optimistic about the Chinese market. Bayer of Germany, Lockwood of Britain and Hermes have established wholly-owned or joint ventures in developed coastal cities in China, such as Shanghai, Fuyang of Zhejiang, Changshu of Jiangsu, Taicang of Guangdong and Shenzhen of Guangdong. At present, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Shanghai and Guangdong coastal areas have become iron oxide production bases for overseas enterprises, and the production capacity of these enterprises has reached 120000 tons/year, accounting for 15% of the total domestic production capacity of iron oxide

the transfer of foreign inorganic pigment production to China not only accelerates China to become the world inorganic pigment production base and sales market, but also intensifies the market competition of China's inorganic pigment industry

exports will show strong growth

for a long time, China's exports of iron oxide, lithopone and chromium pigments are far higher than their respective imports, and only titanium dioxide has been imported more than exported. However, from the perspective of the import and export trade mode of titanium dioxide, because some products are imported through trade modes such as import, processing of imported materials and warehousing and re export goods in the bonded area, they are ultimately exported to foreign countries, so it can be said that the import and export trade of titanium dioxide is basically balanced. In 2005, a total of 228000 tons of titanium dioxide were imported, of which about 76000 tons were imported through trade modes such as import, processing trade of imported materials and warehousing and re export goods in the bonded area; The export of titanium dioxide is 155000 tons. In the future, with the continuous growth of China's titanium dioxide production capacity and output, and the further improvement of product quality, the number of titanium dioxide imported by general trade will gradually decrease. Since then, the proportion of titanium dioxide imported by incoming processing trade will increase, and Jinan new era Gold Testing Instrument Co., Ltd. will have a long-term guarantee service station in Jinan, and the export volume of titanium dioxide will continue to maintain a strong growth trend, It is just around the corner that China will become a net exporter of titanium dioxide in the world

the future trade trend of iron oxide is roughly the same as that of titanium powder. Since then, the proportion of imports in the form of processing with imported materials will remain at more than 50%, and the export volume will continue to increase

the strategic significance of titanium resources highlights

with the continuous development of the non electro-hydraulic servo universal experimental machine in the titanium dioxide industry, the future competition will largely depend on the ownership of titanium resources

although China is one of the countries with the richest titanium resources in the world, more than 90% of them are paragenetic rocks and minerals. Ti0: low grade, complex composition and difficult mining. At the same time, due to decentralized operation, low degree of mechanization and unstable product quality, titanium resources are seriously wasted. At present, the annual production of titanium dioxide in China requires about 1.8 million tons of ilmenite, while the domestic production capacity is only about 1million tons. Ilmenite and high titanium slag must be imported from Australia, Canada, Vietnam and other places. It is estimated that the domestic demand for titanium dioxide in China in 2010 is about. How should we deal with the damage of electronic universal testing machine accessories? It is 1.1 million tons, the output is about 1.2 million tons, and the demand for ilmenite is about 3million tons. The self-sufficiency rate of domestic titanium ore is only 37%

facing the situation of insufficient supply of titanium resources, domestic enterprises must make preparations as soon as possible. One way is outsourcing, which is divided into domestic and foreign channels. Foreign procurement has two ways: independent procurement and group procurement. Relatively speaking, group procurement has more advantages, not only the price is low, the transportation cost is low, but also all users can import raw materials according to the production needs, without capital occupation, warehousing and other problems. Group procurement is undoubtedly the best solution for general titanium dioxide enterprises to solve titanium ore raw materials. It can be considered to form a raw material supply alliance according to the region nearby, and concentrate on importing titanium raw materials

safety and environmental protection become the lifeline of enterprises

the production of each inorganic pigment will produce a large number of three wastes, which will have an adverse impact on the environment if not handled properly. Therefore, the inorganic pigment industry has always been the key monitoring object of the environmental protection department. To this end, the inorganic pigment industry must comprehensively promote cleaner production, adopt advanced production technology and more environmentally friendly raw material routes, control pollution from the source, do a good job in energy conservation and consumption reduction, environmental protection and comprehensive utilization of resources, and form a high-output, less emission and recyclable development model; The environmental impact assessment system and the "three Simultaneities" system shall be strictly implemented for the new and expanded devices to ensure that the technology is environmentally friendly, the funds are in place, and the three wastes are discharged up to the standard; Formulate consumption quotas, implement differentiated policies, encourage enterprises to use residual energy, pressure and waste heat recovery technologies, actively promote water-saving technologies, and improve the rate of circulating water use; Promote the application of information technology in production, adopt DCS distributed control system, realize the automation of production process and the intellectualization of control technology, optimize the structure of raw materials, enhance product stability, improve product quality and reduce consumption; Create conditions for centralized treatment of pollutants, realize the recycling, harmlessness and minimization of discharged wastes, and build an ecological material free machine color industry
