Subject less to economical /commodity cycles

Titanium is used in a wide range of industry and products and its main application as TiO2 pigment shows less correlation to economy-sensitive commodities like iron ore and copper

Critical Material with no ideal substitute

Both titanium dioxide and titanium alloy have unique physical property that no other material can offer, and they are irreplaceable in many industries
