Global Carbon Black Market to Grow at a CAGR of 4.4 % in the Forecast Period of 2021-2026

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Carbon Black Market Report and Forecast 2021-2026’, the global carbon black market reached a production volume of around 14 million metric tons in 2020. It is further projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.4% between 2021 and 2026 to reach a volume of 18 million metric tons by 2026.

The global carbon black market is being driven by the growing carbon black market in the Asia Pacific region. The Asia Pacific is the leading region for carbon black, and the region accounts for around 50% of the world’s output of the substance. Europe, as well as North America, follow the Asia Pacific as the other leading markets. China is one of the largest markets in the Asia Pacific region. It is the leading producer of the substance, accounting for almost 45% of its global output. The United States and Western Europe are also major producers of the substance.

Europe’s carbon black market is one of the leading carbon black markets. The global carbon black output accounted for nearly 14 million metric tons in 2020, out of which around 2.13 million metric tons were produced exclusively in Europe, thereby driving to the global carbon black market. Germany is the largest importer of carbon black in Europe, while the Eastern European countries are the leading exporters of black carbon. The European carbon black market is experiencing a healthy growth due to the rising demand for carbon black from overseas markets, making Europe, in particular, Russia, a major exporter of the product. As carbon black is most commonly used as a rubber filler, the growing automotive and tyre industry in the area is further promoting the carbon black market.
