Abstract

This article presents a systematic literature review (SLR) on the titanium metal product value chain. Globally this value chain is fragmented, meaning that successive production stages rarely occur within the same country, and information published on the value chain is limited. The aim of this review was to collect the literature to create and elaborate on the titanium metal product value chain. The SLR followed a combined building block searching strategy and a criterion analysis to obtain relevant literature on production stages in the value chain. The value chain was based on the three main sections that comprise the titanium metal industry: the raw material, the processes and technologies, and the market. From the main sections, eight production stages were identified and discussed. Arising from the literature review, these stages will be applied as a baseline to understand the requirements for improving the underdeveloped titanium industry in South Africa.

Die artikel is ʼn sistematiese literatuur studie (SLS) oor die titaan metaal produk waardeketting. Op ʼn globale vlak is die titaan waardeketting baie gefragmenteer. Dit beteken dat opeenvolgende produksiefases selde in dieselfde land plaasvind, met die gevolg dat min navorsing op die totale waarde ketting gepubliseer word. Die doel van die SLS was om literatuur te versamel wat kan bydrae tot die identifisering en uitbreiding van die titaan metaal produk waardeketting. Die toegepaste proses vir die SLS was ʼn kombinasie van ʼn bou-blok soek-strategie gevolg deur ʼn kriteria analise. Drie hoof seksies in die titaan industrie is identifiseer: die rou materiaal, prosesse en tegnologieë, en die mark. Die hoof seksies is toe verder opgedeel in agt geïdentifiseerde produksie fases en elke fase is apart bespreek. Die agt geïdentifiseerde fases se relevansie tot die Suid-Afrikaanse titaan industrie sal toegespits word om die toepaslikheid in ʼn plaaslike industrie te bestudeer.
