Revenues of China TiO2 enterprises increases in general


China listed TiO2 enterprises all increased in their revenues, with the growth of 5%-25% in Q1-Q3 2016, which was a reflection of the positive effects on TiO2 enterprises from the increasing price of TiO2 in China. Based on CCM’s observation, the revenue growth of TiO2 enterprises matched the growth of TiO2 prices basically in China.


Among all the listed TiO2 enterprises, Anhui Annada performed the best in the revenue in Q1-Q3 2016, with the growth up 23.03% YoY. As for the China TiO2 giant Henan Billions, its revenue was up 6.96% YoY in Q1 - Q3 2016. However, regarding to the total revenue of these two enterprises, the total revenue of Henan Billions in Q1-Q3 2016 was RMB2.032 billion while that of Anhui Annada was only RMB576 million Q1-Q3 2016.


Tan Ruiqing, vice-president of Henan Billions, stated that if the TiO2 price remained at USD2,213.23/t in 2017, it is very likely that the net profit will double in 2017 in Henan Billions.
