US FeTi price sets multi-year high and ‘still rising’

The ferro-titanium price in the United States is the highest since Fastmarkets began assessing the market almost four years ago and is “rising hourly,” according to some sellers.

Fastmarkets assessed the price for ferro-titanium, 68-72% Ti, ex-whs, US at $2.85-3.10 per lb on Thursday December 10, up by $0.40-0.45 per lb from $2.45-2.65 per lb a week earlier.
