The article examines the performance of titanium dioxide sellers in the European market. If producers' confidence is well-founded, the market will soon see a significant price increase and a long overdue improvement in margins-- the first for well over a year. Hikes of around €130-140/ton ($165-178) have been targeted from October and, assuming the energy complex does not see another sudden spike, it could spell a brief period of respite for beleaguered sellers.
