DUBLIN, Feb. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/p44zc3/tio2_china) has announced the addition of the "TiO2 China Monthly Report 1401" report to their offering.
On Jan. 21, 2014, the National Bureau of Statistics of China (NBS) reported China's GDP (gross domestic product) in 2013, which was USD9.29 trillion, attaining a YoY growth rate of 7.7%. The 7.7% growth rate was higher than government's target, but obtained a 14 years' low. Meanwhile, due to government's control on real estate industry, the growth rate of domestic real estate industry in 2013 was 6.6%, which was 1.1% lower than the GDP growth.
In the beginning of 2014, the domestic TiO2 price declined further and the approaching of Spring Festival made the market more sluggish. Most domestic TiO2 producers took advantage of the Spring Festival to maintain their facilities. According to the authors' investigation, China produced 1.90 million tonnes of TiO2 in total in 2013, which was the same level as in 2012. However, the export volume of TiO2 in 2013 is expected to increase slightly while the domestic demand remained soft, and the TiO2 inventory at the end of 2013 was at a high level.
