The article deals with the rising prices for European titanium dioxide in 2006. Upward pressure had been mounting in the market since early summer, when leading suppliers announced plans to raise levels by €130-140/tonne. In many cases, the increases are being implemented in two steps across November and December. Suppliers claim that record-low inventories and stronger-than-usual demand were driving the momentum for higher prices.
