Titanium Ingot, Mill Products,


Sand Castings



SUMMARY FOR 1988
U.S. Department of Commerce ITA991(88)-5
BUREAU OF THE CENSUS Issued June 1989


SUMMARY OF FINDINGS



In 1988, the production of titanium ingot totaled 85.7
million pounds, an increase of 15 percent from the 74.4
million pounds in 1987. Also, the consumption of ingot in
1988 increased 10 percent from the 71.1 million pounds
reported in 1987 to 78.4 million pounds. For 1987, the
net shipments of mill products totaled 49.7 million pounds,


an 11-percent increase from the 1987 figure of 44.6
million pounds. Casting shipments totaled 1.2 million
pounds which was a 28-percent increase over the 949
thousand pounds reported in 1987.
The statistics in this publication are based on a survey
of manufacturers and represents the total U.S. shipment
of titanium ingot mill products and castings. A descrip-
tion of the survey methodology and related information
appears on page 4.


NOTICE: Effective 1989, the Bureau of the Census will no longer conduct this survey. Any further inquiries
should be directed to Mr. Langtry Lynd, Bureau of the Mines, 2401 E Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20241,

Comparability of output, export, and import classifications for ingot and billet assume that blown, sheet bar, and slab are reported as ingot
or billet in the output codes. Figures for imports of ingot and billet also include powder, crystal, and similar forms which are excluded from

DESCRIPTION OF SURVEY

Scope of Survey. This survey covers companies engaged
in producing titanium ingot, mill products, and castings.

Survey Methodology. The statistics in this publication
are collected by mail on Bureau of the Census quarterly
Form ITA991, Titanium Metal. The panel for this survey
includes all known producers of titanium ingot, mill
products, and castings, approximately 48 companies.

Survey Error. Figures for the current quarter include
estimates for panel members for which reports were not
received in time for tabulation. Such missing figures are
"imputed" based on quarter-to-quarter movements shown
by reporting firms. Imputation generally is limited to a
maximum of 10 percent for any one data cell. Figures
with imputation rates greater than 10 percent are foot-
noted.
The imputation rate is not an explicit indicator of the
potential error in published figures due to nonresponse
because the actual quarterly movements for nonrespon-
dents may or may not closely agree with the imputed
movements. The probable range of difference between
the actual and imputed figures is not precisely known but
is assumed to be small. The degree of uncertainty
regarding the accuracy of the published data, however,
increases as the percentage of imputation increases.
Figures with imputation rates above 10 percent should
be used with caution.

Revisions to Previous Period Data. Data may be revised
as the result of corrected figures received from respon-
dents or other corrections. Figures which have been
revised by more than 5 percent from previously pub-
lished figures are indicated by footnotes.


EXPLANATION OF TERMS

Gross Shipments ofMillProducts. Represents mill shapes
shipped between producers plus mill shapes consumed
in the production of fabricated products such as forg-
ings.

Net Shipments of Mill Products. Represents gross ship-
ments less receipts. For detail categories, net shipments
also includes consumption in the manufacture of other
mill shapes.

Sheet and Strip. Flat roll mill products with thickness less
than or equal to .187 inch.

Plate. Flat roll mill products with thickness exceeding
.187 inch and greater than 10 inches wide.


Forging and Extrusion Billet. Rounds, squares, and rect-
angles with a cross-sectional area greater than or equal
to 16 square inches and width less than 5 times thick-
ness.

RodandBar. Rounds greater than 1/2 inch diameter and
less than or equal to 41/2 inches in diameter. Squares
with cross-sections less than 16 square inches. Rectan-
gles with widths less than or equal to 10 inches and
thickness less than 3/16 and cross-sectional area less
than 16 inches square.

Fastener Stock and Wire. Rounds with diameter less than
or equal to 1/2 inch.

Extrusions (Other Than Tubing). Any product of any
shape, except pipe and tubing, produced by forcing
heated metal through a die.

Pipe and Tubing. All seamless and welded pipe and
tubing.

Ingot. Includes direct casting of extrusion billet and other
similar products.

Stocks. Equal to the end of the prior period plus produc-
tion and receipts for the current period, minus consump-
tion and shipments.


COMPARISON OF EXPORT, IMPORT, AND
DOMESTIC OUTPUT DATA

The Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) system
used for domestic output and the statistical export and
import commodity classifications were developed inde-
pendently. This results in considerable difficulty in com-
paring the three types of data for many commodity
areas. The domestic output classification is based on
type of industry; on the other hand, the export and
import classification system is more materials oriented.
Also, there are a substantial number of imported com-
modities which have no comparable domestic output
classification. The relationships shown in this report
should be considered only as approximations, since, in
addition to the problems mentioned above, there are
also the following problems affecting the comparability
of the three sets of data.

Valuation. There are different methods of valuation for
the three types of data:
* Domestic Output. Valued at the point of production. It
includes the net sales price, f.o.b. plant, after dis-
counts and allowances, exclusive of freight charges
and excise taxes.








* Exports. Valued at the point of exportation. It includes
the selling price, or cost if not sold, and inland freight,
insurance and other charges to the export point.
Estimated producers' values of exports have also
been developed. These values more closely approxi-
mate the values reported for domestic output because
they exclude freight, insurance, and other charges
applied from the producing plant to the export point.
* Imports. Valued at the first port of entry in the United
States. It includes c.i.f. (cost, insurance, and freight),
duty, and other charges to the import point.

Duplication in Quantity and Value of Output. Because
producers' shipments of some commodities may be
used as materials for incorporation into other commod-
ities, combinations of data for such commodities may
contain a certain amount of duplication. Thus, percent-
ages of exports to output or imports to apparent con-
sumption (output plus imports minus exports) at four-
digit or broader levels may be understated. Where duplication
is known to be substantial, the output data are appropri-
ately noted in the table.

Low-Value Import and Export Transactions. Detailed
commodity information is not included for individual
export shipments valued at not more than $1,500. Gen-
erally, detailed commodity information is not included
for individual import shipments valued at more than
$1,000. For textiles and textile products, gloves, foot-
wear, and miscellaneous rubber and plastics products,
detailed commodity information is not included for indi-
vidual import shipments valued at not more than $250.
This is believed to have only negligible effects on the
statistics for the bulk of the commodities.

Manufacturers' Shipments, Not Specified by Kind. The
value of manufacturers' shipments at the four-digit indus-
try level often includes a small amount which is not
distributed among the individual five-digit product classes.
Export and import percentages at the more detailed
levels might, therefore, be slightly overstated.

Time Lag Between Output and Exports. There will be a
lag between the time a commodity is produced or
shipped by the producer and the time it is actually
exported, especially when intermediaries (wholesalers,
exporters, etc.) are involved. Ordinarily, this type of
discrepancy is insignificant in annual figures.

"Direct" vs "Total" Commodity Exports and Imports.
Export and import data do not include materials which
are incorporated into other more finished products and
exported or imported in finished form. Thus, by showing
only direct exports and imports, the relation of exports to
output and imports to apparent consumption for inter-
mediate products is considerably understated.


Used Commodities. With a few exceptions, used or
rebuilt commodities are classified in the same import or
export codes as is new merchandise. Percentages are
thus overstated to the extent that used or rebuilt prod-
ucts are significant in trade.

Geographic Area of Coverage. Import and export data
reflect the movement of merchandise into and out of
U.S. foreign trade zones, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the
U.S. customs territory (includes the 50 States, the District
of Columbia, and Puerto Rico).
