TITANIUM USA 201834th annual TITANIUM Conference & ExhibitionDate: 10/7/2018 - 10/10/2018Venue: Bellagio Las Vegas, Las Vegas NV, United States
Titanium industry chain can be divided into the following four parts:
1. Ilmenite, rutile and other primary mineral beneficiation, through physical methods to obtain higher grade concentrate
2. Through the re-processing of the concentrate purification system to obtain high-purity titanium dioxide to be used for the titanium dioxide industry.
3. Through the oxidation of titanium dioxide, reduction and other means to generate titanium tetrachloride, intermediate products are made into titanium sponge
4. Through the sponge titanium casting processing, preparation of crystal structure of dense titanium ingots, for the production of titanium and titanium alloy.
Titanium prices are subject both to long term trends and periodic volatility. Higher costs for raw materials and energy, as well as increasing demand for titanium in a range of consumer products, work to increase titanium prices.
