Welcome to the October 2020 issue of Metal Market Magazine, where we delve into the markets of titanium dioxide (TiO2) and mineral sands, as well as rare earths and Chinese magnesia.

The September 2020 issue – which you can still download  at this link – included analytical coverage of the refractories raw materials industry, including andalusite, bauxite, magnesia and fused alumina.

In this October issue, meanwhile, you will be pleased to find:

  • TiO2 and mineral sands: Titanium dioxide makers aim for a steady course as price stabilization and inventory control are bearing fruit for pigment and mineral sand producers, William Clarke reports
  • Magnesia headwinds: Demand for magnesia products from China, the largest global producer of the raw material, suffered a severe hit this year, triggering a price downturn, writes Carrie Shi
  • Rare earths: Covid-19 related concerns on supply chain disruptions and the ongoing trade war between the US and China are bringing new stimulus to the rare earth market, William Clarke reports

Also available to you is a downloadable PDF of the full magazine issue.
