Titanium parts have very high BTF ratios, with most parts machined from large, solid pieces of metal. The BTF for a titanium part fabricated from plate or sheet is often more than 20 to 1—that is, a part weighing only a pound may require more than 20 pounds of the raw metal to produce. Chapter Six examines a number of emerging technologies that have the potential to address these various production cost drivers. CHAPTER THREE The Titanium Industrial Base and Other Market Characteristics This chapter discusses the global sources of titanium sponge, the role of the supplier base, and other market characteristics—major buyers, substitutes and complements, and market price systems.
The ingots are produced in three- to seven-ton batches, requiring a large space and involving many steps between each melt. Not only are the space and production equipment expensive, but the labor involved in moving batches adds signiﬁcant cost (Gerdemann, 2001). Fabrication Cost The two main factors in the fabrication cost are the slow machining process and the high BTF ratio in part production. The hardness that makes titanium so desirable also makes it more diﬃcult to machine than traditional aluminum.
However, titanium’s main drawback is its high price—titanium metal is more than ﬁve times as expensive as aluminum. 1 In fact, titanium is the fourth-most abundant metal in the earth’s crust and the ninth-most common element on the entire planet (Kraft, 2004; Gerdemann, 2001; 1 According to TIMET, 2006, the availability of rutile ore (the major titanium-containing ore) will not be a problem in the foreseeable future. 7 8 Titanium: Industrial Base, Price Trends, and Technology Initiatives Cariola, 1999).
