As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread across the world, our analysts are constantly tracking the impact of this rapidly evolving situation on the markets and the consumer purchase behaviours. Thus, our latest estimates and analysis about the current market trends and forecast will exhaustively reflect the effects of this emerging pandemic.
The Europe carbon black market is being driven by its rising demand from industries like the thriving automotive and infrastructure industries. In 2019, almost 2.10 million metric tons of carbon black was produced in Europe. Being the second largest producer of the material in the world, the growth of the industry in the continent will drive the global market growth. In 2019, the global production stood at nearly 13 million metric tons. It is expected to grow further in the forecast period of 2019-2024, growing at a CAGR of 4.3%.

Europe accounts for nearly a fifth of the global production of the industry. It is the leading market for the product after the Asia Pacific region. While Germany is the largest importer of the product in the region, Eastern European countries are the major producers of the substance and extensively export the surplus output to the EU countries. Russia and the other Eastern European countries account for nearly 9% of the global production of the substance.
The Europe carbon black market is being driven by the rising export demand from overseas markets. The continent exports the substance to regions like the Middle East, Africa, and the US, among other regions. Russia, a major exporter in the continent, exports carbon black within the European region as well as to other regions like North America. North America primarily imports the substance from Russia along with China because of the lower costs. Russia is its major exporter in Europe with multiple European countries importing the product from the Eurasian country over China, which is the largest producer globally. This is because the European countries acquire the material at a much lower cost with reduced costs of transportation. Thus, the Russian market is aided by the growing export demand. The easy availability of feedstock and the expansion of production units will also aid the growth of the industry in the country.
Properties and Applications
Carbon black is produced through the partial combustion of hydrocarbons and appears as fine black particles of amorphous carbon. It is used extensively in the automotive sector in tyres, tubes, tread belts, hoses, and others. It is also used as colouring pigments in inks and as the electric conductive agent of high technology materials. The diverse applications of the substance can be broadly categorised as:
Its various product types are specialty, lamp, channel, acetylene, furnace, gas and commodity among others. By grades, they are categorised as specialty grade, standard grade, N330, N550, N660, N220, and N990, among others. The EMR report also looks in-depth into the various regional markets in Europe like Germany, France, United Kingdom, and Italy.
Carbon black finds its leading application in the tyre industry. Thus, the growth of the industry is heavily dependent upon, not just the tyre industry, but also the automotive industry where tyres find their leading application. In Europe, the replacement tyre segment dominates the market. However, with the steady growth in new car registrations in the region post the economic crises of 2012 are leading to a moderate growth in the demand for OEM tyres. Germany is a leading tyre industry in the region with a thriving car manufacturing industry. The Germany automotive market saw an increase of almost 3% in 2018, as compared to 2017, and is forecasted to witness further growth in 2019. The growth in the sales of electric vehicles in the mature markets in Europe will provide further impetus to the Europe carbon black market. The increase in the sales of e-vehicles sales in the region is generating demand for speciality tyres to combat the wear caused by the vehicles’ high torque acceleration.
In Europe, speciality products are expected to witness a robust growth in the coming years. With carbon black being used in paints, sealants, adhesives, and coating, the steadily growing infrastructure industry in the region, especially the renovation and repair segment, will aid the industry further. The material is also used as an ink pigment and thus, is affected by the climate of the various sectors of the print industry. The Western Europe market for publishing printing is expected to attain USD 13.8 billion in 2021, while its print packaging industry will reach USD 52.3 billion in the same year.
