Panelists at TITANIUM EUROPE 2017 conference To Share Insights, Estimates on World Supply Trends
Members of the Amsterdam conference’s World Titanium Industry Supply Trends speaker panel will include Sylvain Gehler, Specialty Metals Co., Nick Corby, ELG Utica Alloys Inc., Vincent Rocco, AMETEK Reading Alloys, and Thomas Hohne-Sparborth, Roskill Information Services Ltd.

Last year, at the TITANIUM USA conference held in Scottsdale, AZ, speakers on the World Titanium Industry Supply Trends panel estimated that global titanium melting capacity had reached 450,000 metric tons in 2016. According to most analysts, China, the United States, Russia and Japan are the four countries with the largest titanium melting capacities.

By way of comparison, an online report from the Brussels-based World Steel Association estimated that global crude steel production in 2016 registered 1.6 billion metric tons in 2016, with China identified as the world’s largest steel producer.

Meanwhile, world titanium sponge capacity was projected at 275,000 metric tons. China, the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and Japan are believed to have the largest sponge-producing capacities. (It should be noted that “capacity” estimates do not necessarily reflect actual output levels.) It will be interesting to compare titanium supply trend estimates given by panelists at the Amsterdam gathering.

Gehler is the managing director of Specialty Metals, based in in Brussels, and also serves as the chairman of UST Kamenogorsk’s titanium and magnesium plant, a leading integrated producer of titanium sponge and magnesium located in Kazakhstan. Corby, the titanium product manager at ELG Utica Alloys, oversees worldwide business development, marketing, purchasing, and sales operations. The company, with its headquarters in Duisburg, Germany, has facilities in North America, Mexico, Europe and Asia.

Hohne-Sparborth joined London-based Roskill in 2012 and currently manages Roskill’s in-house economic analysis team. He is closely involved in Roskill’s consultancy assignments related to market outlooks, cost modelling, and price assessments. Rocco is the sales manager of Reading Alloys. AMETEK Reading Alloys, located in Robesonia, PA, is a leading supplier of titanium powder to the global medical implant industry.
