Steady increase in zircon sand prices during Q2 2021
There has been a steady increase in zircon sand pricing on the back of Iluka Resources raising their prices by USD 70/mt for Q2 2021 deliveries. Other major producers, such as RBM and Tronox, have followed suit and raised their prices by a similar amount. Prices now stand at around USD 1490-1520/mt CIF China port. Prices are likely to continue upwards heading into Q3 due to a healthy demand for downstream zirconium products. Chinese output of zirconium chemicals has increased by as much as 50% compared to this time last year.
Zircon sand is the starting raw material for the majority of zirconium chemicals, including zirconium oxychloride, zirconium basic carbonate and zirconium oxide.
