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.
