) has announced the addition of the
report to their offering.
At the end of 2013, China's economy suffered from a lack of liquidity again and stocks declined, just like in June 2013. The new government refuses to continue the old routestimulating economic growth by injecting liquidity. Besides, Yu Ebao, a new investment fund product that has higher returns than demand deposits in banks, also hit the current bank system. This means banks' cost of deposits and lending rates will be higher than before, which will increase financial cost burden of manufacturers.
In Dec., the domestic TiO2 export price enjoyed a rare MoM growth, which might be a bottom signal. But the domestic TiO2 price accelerated its decline as producers implemented low price strategies to achieve their full-year sales target, and the price of titanium feedstock followed the trend of TiO2 price.
Despite the current sluggish market condition, some producers, like Dongfang Titanium, CNNC Titanium, GPRO Titanium and Luohe Xingmao, expanded their production capacity. There are also new entrants into the titanium industry, which will add to the supply of synthetic rutile and make the competition more intense.
