Iluka Resources made another price increase for Q4 2011 to take the price of Zircon Sand up to USD 2700/mt CIF China port. Due to a slowdown in demand for zirconium chemicals such as Zirconium Oxychloride and Zirconium Basic Carbonate the factories have had to drop their prices slightly to compete for the available business.
The longer term outlook for zirconium chemical prices in 2012 looks firm with raw material prices remaining high.
Zircon Sand is the starting raw material for the production of the majority of Zirconium Chemicals and Zirconium Oxides including Zirconium Oxychloride, Zirconium Basic Sulphate, Zirconium Basic Carbonate, Zirconium Acetate, Zirconium Nitrate, Zirconium Oxide and Yttria Stabilised Zirconia.
