Description

TZMI's Titanium Feedstock Producers Comparative Cost Study is now in its 17th edition.

The study continues to review cost versus revenue analysis for producers across the feedstock sector. A total of 37 operations have been included in this study, with two new operations included for the first time and four operations re-included after restarting operations.

The study provides:

  • A detailed explanation of TZMI's methodology employed to maintain consistent comparisons of operating costs across the entire titanium feedstock industry
  • Informed discussion about the parameters used for comparing relative competitiveness in the industry
  • Updated cost data for the industry from information and research garnered during the previous year
  • Commentary on the importance of co-product credits in the current market conditions (pig iron and zircon)
  • Discussion on increasing operating costs, specifically energy and mining costs
  • An analysis of the effect of exchange rates on producer performance
  • An updated titanium feedstock industry cost curve - an invaluable tool for evaluating both existing operations and measuring the potential of new projects
