According to statistics released by the State Customs Service, in January-October 2020, the export of titanium ore and concentrate in monetary terms decreased 15.1%, to $107.45 million compared to the same period in 2019. Ukraine imported 890 tonnes of titanium ore for $748,000 during that period (711 tonnes of ore for $500,000 in January-October 2019).

Vilnohirsk state mining and metallurgical combine (Dnipropetrovsk region), Irshansk state mining and processing combine (Zhytomyr region), Valki-Ilmenite and Mezhdurechensk Mining and Concentration Complexes (both are located in Irshansk, Zhytomyr region) are the main producers of titanium ore in Ukraine. Dnipro-based Velta production and commercial firm built a mining and processing complex at the Birzulivske ilmenite deposit, which has a 240,000-tonne ilmenite concentrate capacity per year.
