The global carbon black market is anticipated to reach USD 17.58 billion by 2026 according to a new study published by Polaris Market Research.
Increasing demand for carbon black from the end-use industries has driven the carbon black market. The primary use of carbon black includes reinforcement agents in rubber compounds mainly in tires, as black pigment in surface coatings, printing inks, plastics and paper. The thermal and oil furnace process are primarily the leading technology types used for manufacturing of carbon black. Product demand for manufacturing of tires for automobiles has been the largest end use segment driving the carbon black market. The increasing yearly production of vehicle units has led to a significantly increasing demand for tires which ultimately has influenced demand for carbon black. Tire rethreading is yet another parallel source for increasing demands of tire materials as it uses the same materials. Innovation and technological developments within the tire manufacturing industry is likely to impact product quality material specification as well.
The other sectors making use of the product would include printing inks, plastics and coatings etc. however tough in a comparatively less amount. Paints, coatings, plastics etc, are some of the most used components in the construction and infrastructure industry, which has been witnessing strong growth in the developed countries and above an average growth rate in the emerging nations especially in Asia Pacific. Latin America’s construction sector is a booming market for the past three to four years owing to shift in manufacturing base from the U.S. mainly. These factors are anticipated to eventually impact demand for the product indirectly as its end-use components finds higher application within different set of industries.
