Market participants believe that after a four-month downturn, the current price of tio2 titanium dioxide has reached the bottom, so downstream users can also withstand a certain degree of price increases. In addition, the cost of raw materials also supports the price of titanium dioxide.

But some, however, industry insiders reminded that this round of price increases may be related to the release trading restrictions on the stocks at the end of the month. This round of stock trading release reached 16 billion CNY.
