The new plant will enable the company to improve the efficiency of its TiO2 production and increase its flexibility to adjust its production output up or down to respond to global demands.

Annual global TiO2 market growth tracks global GDP, requiring about 150,000 to 200,000 metric tons of additional product to serve the marketplace each year. "Based on our current market outlook, we expect demand to increase gradually in the 2016-2018 time frame. DuPont Titanium Technologies will leverage the cost advantage of its Altamira facility at start-up in 2016 and continue to manage its production assets in order to remain well-positioned to deliver high-quality titanium dioxide to meet the ever changing needs of our customers,” said BC Chong, president DuPont Titanium Technologies.
