Decision to reinstate US titanium price

Fastmarkets will reinstate one quarterly US titanium price based on market feedback. The consultation period for four other delisted US titanium prices also remains open.

Five quarterly US titanium prices were delisted in April 2023 following a 30-day notice period due to low market liquidity.

Effective Friday July 7, Fastmarkets has reinstated the following price based on interest and support from the aerospace industry, following a 30-day notice period:

MB-TI-0004: Titanium ingot 6AI-4V, fob shipping point US, $/lb
Quality: 6Al-4V (aluminum 6%, vanadium 4%, titanium remainder)
Location: fob shipping point
Unit: US dollars per lb
Publication: Quarterly on the 10th of the month by 5pm New York time

The price will next be assessed on Monday July 10. The last assessment for this market was on October 10, meaning there will be a permanent gap in the data for the assessments that would have been on January 10 and April 10. The prices were not updated on schedule on January 10 due to an editorial error.

In addition, the following four quarterly titanium prices were delisted due to lack of market liquidity, but could be reinstated if there is interest and support from the market:

MB-TI-0005: Titanium plate alloy AMS 4911, fob shipping point US, $/lb
Quality: AMS 4911 ½in x 48in x 120in
Location: fob shipping point
Unit: US dollars per lb
Publication: Quarterly

MB-TI-0006: Titanium bar alloy AMS 4928, fob shipping point US, $/lb
Quality: AMS 4928, 1in diameter
