With the new generation of large passenger aircraft, the A380 and A350 from Airbus and the B787 from Boeing, using greater volumes of carbon fibre reinforced polymers (CFRP), which are compatible with titanium but not with aluminium, titanium's position as a key material in the aerospace industry is assured and growing. The use of CFRP is strongly favoured by airline companies as it does not exhibit fatigue and requires far less costly downtime and maintenance.
In 2010 and 2011, the delayed building programmes for the A380 and B787 aircraft, as well as that for the new A350, picked up momentum and demand for aerospace grade titanium rose sharply. At the same time, strong growth in demand for industrial grade material, mainly in China, resumed. This resulted in the global market for titanium metal expanding by some 60% over the 2009 level. In 2012, the size of the market is thought to have levelled out but modest growth is being forecast for 2013.
After falling to 123.5kt in 2009, global supply of titanium sponge rose by an average of 26.5%py from 2010 to 2012 reaching 241kt; an estimated 20kt surplus to demand. Output is expected to fall to about 230kt in 2013 because of growing inventories and slowing demand growth. World titanium sponge production capacity of 330ktpy is well in excess of both demand and output. Most of this surplus is in China and is for industrial grade material, although capacity for aerospace grade sponge, mainly in Japan, Russia, the USA and Kazakhstan, is more than adequate to meet demand.
If you're involved with titanium metal in any way, it will help you make the right decisions.
