What is Titanium used for?
In terms of international pricing benchmarks, according to the CP data released by Saudi Aramco, the propane contract price (CP) in March was $895 / ton, up $120 / ton from the previous month, up 15.48% from the previous month and up 43.20% from the same period last year. Butane contract price (CP) in March was 920 US dollars/ton, up 145 US dollars/ton compared with last month, up 18.71% month-on-month, up 54.62% compared with the same period last year; In March, CP in Saudi Arabia rose sharply, giving a strong boost to the international and domestic LPG market. Benchmark LPG prices are higher than a year ago as the economy continues to recover and demand for crude oil continues to repair. According to this trend, the market price of titanium powder will also be affected to a certain extent.
Can be used in pyrotechnic fuzes and combustible compositions, photographic / ignition pastes, glass-to-metal or ceramic-to-metal joining materials, gas turbine engines, intermetallic compounds, ship structures, components in pumps. Deep-sea submersibles, condensers, fuselage, water-jet propulsion systems, weapons, systems, flue gas desulfurization, steam turbines, fan blades, piping systems, compressor plates, heat exchangers, wing structures, containers, tanks, mixers, glasses frames, medical implants, nuclear waste storage, valves, springs, connecting rods, jewelry and sports equipment.
In aerospace industry:
Used in gas turbine engines for military and commercial aircraft (using titanium to reduce engine weight while maintaining strength), fuselage, and various applications for missiles and spacecraft. In most aircraft engines, titanium-based alloy parts account for 20-30% of the engine weight.
Titanium alloys are used in aircraft, armor, naval ships, spacecraft and missiles because of their high tensile strength-density ratio, high corrosion resistance and ability to withstand moderate high temperature without creep. For these applications, titanium alloyed with aluminum, vanadium and other elements is used in a variety of components, including key structural components, firewalls, landing gears, exhaust pipes (helicopters) and hydraulic systems. In fact, about 2/3 of titanium is produced for aircraft engines and frames.
SR-71 Blackbird was one of the first aircraft to make extensive use of titanium in its structure, paving the way for the use of modern military and commercial aircraft. It is estimated that the Boeing 777 used 59 metric tons (130000 pounds), the Boeing 747 used 45 tons, the Boeing 737 used 18 tons, the Airbus A340 used 32 tons, the Airbus A330 used 18 tons and the Airbus A320 used 12 tons. The Airbus A380 may use 146 metric tons, including about 26 tons of engines. In engine applications, titanium is used in rotors, compressor blades, hydraulic system components and engine rooms. Titanium 6AL-4V alloys account for nearly 50 per cent of all alloys used in aircraft applications.
Titanium and its alloys are widely used to coat the surface of implantable medical devices to accelerate bone growth and healing.
Titanium and its alloys have become very popular materials because of their low density, high corrosion resistance and excellent mechanical properties (Randall and Animesh,1997 years; Liu et al., 2005). Today, titanium is also recognized for use in medical implants, exclusive sports equipment and jewelry. Titanium parts are still expensive, not only because of the high price of raw materials, but also because of the difficulty of forming, machining and welding. This is why the near-net forming of titanium is very favorable. As a near-net forming process for mass production of small and complex parts, Metal injection Molding (MIM) is an ideal alternative (Rack and Qazi,2005 years).
In the MIM process, the binder is a key component, providing the fluidity and formability needed for the powder to form, even if it is temporary (Scott Weil et al. 2006). The adhesive systems commonly used in injection molding are based on thermoplastic materials (Krauss et al. 2007; Witari et al. 2004). In this study, palm oil derivatives, palm stearic acid, have been formulated and evaluated as a possible alternative adhesive system. The reason for using palm stearate as an adhesive system is that its content may be beneficial in the degreasing process. It is important to gradually remove the adhesive to maintain the shape of the defatted part. At different heating temperatures, the adhesive melts, leaving different impurities at different melting points. The remaining impurities help to form pores to remove the remaining adhesive material. Therefore, the selection of palm stearate as a possible alternative binder system meets the important standard of binder system in PIM process because its components show different melting points.
The price is influenced by many factors including the supply and demand in the market, industry trends, economic activity, market sentiment, and unexpected events.

New Delhi: India is seeking to increase its purchases of crude oil from Brazil, the country's oil minister said recently after meeting his Brazilian counterpart.
India is the world's third-largest importer and consumer of crude oil. Brazil currently supplies only a fraction of India's crude oil imports.
India's state-owned companies Bharat Petroleum Corp and Oil and Natural Gas Corp have invested in oil and gas exploration in Brazil.
India, which imports about 84% of its crude oil needs, is reducing its import bill by increasing biofuel use, among other things.
India's state-owned fuel retailers are increasing ethanol storage capacity by 51 percent and the country plans to double the biofuel blend in petrol to 20 percent by 2025.
India and Brazil are currently cooperating on biofuels and ethanol.
The prices of many commodities like the titanium powder are expected to increase in the future.
