The article presents a forecast for the titanium dioxide market in Asia. The growth of titanium dioxide pigment demand in the Asia-Pacific region will continue to outpace the rest of the world in the coming years, but the trend is likely to slow as China becomes a developed market. Compounded annual growth in the Asia-Pacific region is forecast at 6.3% until 2015, according to Jim Fisher, president of international consultancy IBMA.
