Scarcity of raw materials

Maybe the story started during the worldwide recession. Raw material suppliers shortened investments and further developments and even had to decrease their headcount. During this period the demand by coatings manufacturers for raw material decreased, too. Both needed to adapt to the challenging fact of smaller sales volumes. Therefore, I can understand that it was not possible to increase the production capacity as fast as the economy became cured. But still it seems to be a fact, as I heard lately during the European Coatings SHOW, that it is very tough to buy titanium dioxide nowadays for a reasonable price. Softening agents seem to be less available, too.
