Global Carbon Black Market to Grow with a CAGR of 6.1% from 2020 to 2028

12 April 2021

Pune, India, April 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The carbon black market was valued at USD 17.21 billion in 2020 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period from 2020 to 2028. Carbon black is a substance produced by the partial ignition of heavy petroleum products like ethylene cracking tar, FCC tar, and coal tar.

Increasing product utilization in plastic manufacturing is expected to help the global carbon black market to grow over the predicted period. The growing utilization of plastics in electronic & electrical components will, therefore, increase the product demand further. Carbon black is manufactured either by partial ignition or thermal decomposition method, which uses natural gas and oil as a source material. It is manufactured by four distinctive procedures, which are channel black, furnace black, lamp black, and acetylene black process.

Carbon black provides various advantages like rolling resistance and increased tires tread wear; it can absorb ultraviolet light and transform it into heat, thereby making plastics more stable to ultraviolet radiation. It can also provide ultraviolet protection and thermal conductivity to coverings.

The carbon black market is growing with the growth of modern technologies and applications. Carbon black is being utilized in various applications like tires, plastics, lithium-ion batteries, non-tire rubbers, construction and metallurgy, and graphite manufacturing.

Some developing countries in the Asia Pacific region such as South Korea, India, and China are witnessing a spurt in automotive manufacturing, which has increased the need for rubber and tires. Further, the manufacturing sector of the region has also been growing at an impressive rate due to increasing investments in the sector. This will affect the carbon black market positively.

Apart from these, the growth of the construction industry can also generate several profitable avenues for the major businesses. All these factors are going to drive the carbon black market in the region. On the other hand, the carbon dioxide released in carbon black manufacturing can act as a major restraint for the market.

Some Noted Developments Considered in the Report are:

  • December 2020 - Safic-Alcan entered into a circulation bond contract with Orion Engineered Carbons, which was to be operational from January 1, 2021. This Bond protects specialty carbon black and rubber carbon black, for implementation in ink functions, polymers mechanical rubber goods, and numerous distinctive applications. This move is anticipated to strengthen its position in the global specialty carbon black industry.
  • November 2020 – Continental Carbon Company, one of the dominant worldwide inventors of furnace-grade carbon blacks for the tire and rubber company, enrolled into a bond with the Bolder Industries, an organization that works in the transformation of tires into sustainable industrial products. The bond requires the commercialization of eco-friendly items for the global rubber industries and plastics.
  • February 2020 – Birla Carbon collaborated with GranBio, which was functioning to improve the sustainability of rubber goods and tires. In February 2020, the Birla group declared the presentation of a patent application Nanocellulose Dispersion Composite for modification by rubber and tire companies. This Nanocellulose Dispersion Composite premix is the result of a three-year consolidated expansion program with GranBio, and it gives the optimal distribution of nanocellulose in rubber preparations to enhance tire rolling support.

COVID-19 Impact on Global Carbon Black Market

QMI team has closely monitored the impact of COVID-19 on the global carbon black market, and it has been observed that the demand for carbon black has slowed down during the pandemic time. But it is anticipated to grow at a healthy pace from mid-2021. To cater to the pandemic, many countries across the globe have enforced strict lockdown norms, which have hampered all kinds of business activities.

Demand & supply of products, raw materials, and manufacturing facilities have been completely disrupted, which is creating weak product and services demand. Among the various industries, transportation, metal & mining, chemicals and materials, and the electronic industry have suffered huge financial losses. This has created weak demand for the carbon black market from chemical and material industries. These all factors have been mentioned and analyzed in this report in details.

Global Carbon Black Market, By Process

By process, the global carbon black market has been segmented into furnace black, channel black, acetylene black, and lamp black. Furnace black is the most frequently utilized procedure due to maximum manufacturing capability. Industrially, it is manufactured by the ignition of massive petroleum products, like fluid catalytic cracking tar and coal tar.

The demand for carbon black is anticipated to increase in the US due to rising automotive sales in the nation. Tire producers in North America are starting new units in the area of automobile manufacturing. Additionally, the rapid adoption of modern technologies in tire manufacturing is expected to boost the market in the region.

Global Carbon Black Market, By Grade

By grade, the global carbon black market has been segmented into specialty grade and conductive grade. The specialty grade segment is the largest market contributor. Specialty carbon black is high-quality refined carbon black manufactured from channel black, acetylene black, carbon black, and lamp black procedure. For producing specialty carbon black, a hydrocarbon is ignited in a slight air supply. An increase in the utilization of specialty carbon blacks in ultraviolet, stabilizing, pigmenting, and conductive agents are going to boost the development of the market.

Global Carbon Black Market, By Applications

By application, the global carbon black market has been segmented into tires, coatings, plastics, printing inks, and toners. The tires segment is the largest market contributor. On the other hand, the plastics segment is anticipated to grow with the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Carbon black helps conduct heat away from the belt and tread area of the tire and assists in lowering thermal destruction, which helps increase the lifespan of tires. As the need for vehicles rises, it is anticipated that the automotive market will grow significantly, which will further raise the demand for carbon black in the coming years
