The global carbon black market is being driven by its extensive application in the tyre sector. In 2018, the carbon black market attained nearly 13 million metric tons. The market is further expected to grow in the forecast period of 2019-2024 at a CAGR of 4.3% to attain a volume of 21 million metric tons.
The Asia Pacific is the leading industry for carbon black, and the region accounts for over half the world’s production of the substance. The Asia Pacific is followed by Europe and North America as the other major markets in the industry. China is the largest market in the Asia Pacific region and is the leading producer of the substance, accounting for nearly 45% of its global output. China also accounts for its largest consumption, globally. The US and Western Europe are also significant producers of the substance.
Nearly 90% of the carbon black produced, globally, is utilised in rubber-related applications where it is used as a reinforcing filler. The market for the substance is finding the majority of its impetus from the growing tyre industry whose global demand stood at 3112 million tons in 2018 and is expected to grow at a healthy pace in the coming years. The Asia Pacific market will be driven by its expanding tyre industry with tyre manufacturers switching their production bases to the emerging economies within the region. China is also the leading market for this industry, accounting for nearly half the global market. The tyre industry in China is being driven by its growing car market whose global share increased by almost 21% in 2016, since 2007. Other major markets for carbon black like the US and Western Europe, on the other hand, are expected to witness a rise in the demand for speciality carbon blacks.
Properties and Applications
Carbon black is manufactured through the partial combustion of materials like natural gas or petroleum and appears as a finely divided form of black amorphous carbon. By product types, it can be categorised as specialty, lamp, channel, acetylene, furnace, gas, commodity, and thermal black, among others. Its common grades are specialty grade, standard grade, N330, N550, N660, N220, and N990, among others. It finds applications across diverse sectors as an ink pigment, in the reinforcement of rubber, and as an electric conductive agent. Its application sectors can be categorised as:
The report also analyses the various regional markets like North America, LATAM, Middle East and Africa, Europe, and Asia Pacific.
The global carbon black market is being driven by its expanding applications in the tyre industry, along with industries like construction, manufacturing, and printing. Along with China, the other significant markets for tyre are Europe, the United States, India, and Japan. The steady pace of growth in the ownership of cars is also aiding the industry as it is adding to the rise in the demand for tyres. The automobile industry is expected to witness an increase in demand, especially from emerging economies like China and India. India, a major carbon black industry in Asia after China, is projected to be the third largest automobile industry by 2021. The growing demand for replacement tyres in countries like the US and China will also aid the industry.
The increasing end-uses of speciality products, especially in developed countries like the US is driving the growth of the industry. These products find their applications in segments like sealants, adhesives, and coatings, among others, which are also expected to grow in the coming years due to the infrastructural development taking place across the world. The increasing penetration of these products in emerging markets like China, Southeast Asia, Middle East, and South America will further drive the growth of the global carbon black market.
With leading manufacturers increasingly investing in R & D undertakings, the market is expected to see further growth due to the addition of new end-uses of the substance with technological advancements. Amidst environmental concerns, manufacturers are also investing in making the production process sustainable and leading to lesser waste generation. Plastics, inks, and printing will be the other expanding application sectors for carbon black. The growth in the packaging industry in the US will provide further impetus to the industry as it is aiding the plastics industry in the region.
