In terms of revenue, the global carbon black market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 4.4% from 2018 to 2026

Interms of revenue, the global carbon black market is projected to expand at aCAGR of 4.4% from 2018 to 2026, according to a new research report titled ‘CarbonBlack Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, andForecast, 2018–2026’ published by Transparency Market Research(TMR). According to the report, in terms of volume, the global carbon black market isexpected to reach 18,898.4 kilo tons by 2026. The market is driven by rise inthe demand for carbon black from automotive and rubber industries. The carbonblack market in Asia Pacific is estimated to expand at a CAGR of 5.1% duringthe forecast period, owing to presence of a large number of manufacturers ofcarbon black in the region. Among grades, the reinforced grade segment held amajor share of the global carbon black market in 2017. However, the specialtygrade segment is expected to expand significantly from 2017 to 2026. This trendis projected to continue throughout the forecast period.

Risein demand for carbon black of semi-reinforced and specialty grades expected toboost the market

Amonggrades, the reinforced grade segment held a major share of the carbon blackmarket, in terms of volume, in 2017. Use of carbon black of semi-reinforcedgrade in rubber and automotive industries is increasing in regions such asEurope and North America. Carbon black is largely utilized in the rubbersector. Non-tire applications of carbon black include rubber products such asconveyor belts, flaps, hoses, and gaskets. In the plastics industry, carbonblack is used for conductive packaging, semi-conductive cable compounds, andfilms. As a pigment, carbon black used in a wide range of applications such asprinting, carbon paper, inks, paints & coatings, dry-cell batteries,electrodes, and carbon brushes. Several major companies in the market are highlyinvesting in research & development of specialty-grade carbon black inorder to meet the rising demand from end-user industries such as paints,high-performance coatings, and inks & pigments.

Environmental and health-relatedconcerns restrain the carbon black market

Carbonblack is both combustible and explosible. The minimum explosible concentration(MEC) for carbon black dust suspended in air is >50g/m³. This concentrationis higher than the current occupational exposure limit. Production of carbonblack utilizes carbon-rich feedstock in combination with oxygen. The processemits sulfur and nitrogen oxides and particulate matter, which are hazardous tothe environment and also to health of people working in plants. In the U.S. andWestern Europe, emissions from carbon black production plants are strictlyregulated. These environmental and health-related concerns are hampering theglobal carbon black market, and especially the market in the U.S.

Usage of recovered carbon black(rCB) from waste tires offers key opportunities

Recoveredcarbon black (rCB) is carbon black recovered from end-of-life tires (ELTs). Theproduct has recently been introduced in the market in commercial quantities.Unlike virgin carbon black, production of rCB does not result in high emissionsof sulfur oxides (SOx), nitrogen oxides (NOx), or particulate matter. There exists a growingconcern, as carbon black production plants in the U.S. are being forced toreduce their air emissions. Carbon black recovered from waste tires withimproved product quality offers a cost-effective measure to the tire industryto reduce its carbon footprint. Development of carbon black products for greenrubber tires is anticipated to create lucrative growth opportunities for themarket in the next few years.

Asia Pacific accounts for a majorshare in terms of value and volume

AsiaPacific held the leading i.e. more than 50% share of the global carbon blackmarket, in terms of volume, in 2017. The carbon black market has witnessed ashift from the West to the East, due to low manufacturing costs and lessstringent environmental regulations imposed by governments of countries in theEast.

A majorityof the demand for carbon black comes from China and India, due to expandingtire manufacturing industry and construction sector in these countries. Thecarbon black market in North America witnessed slowdown in 2017, with lowproduction volume and low demand from the tire industry in the region. In 2012,five major companies producing carbon black in the U.S. were served notices forviolation of the Clean Air Act by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency(EPA) with regard to SOx and NOx emissions from their carbon black productionplants. The carbon black market in North America is projected to witnessmoderate attractiveness even though the demand for specialty-grade carbon blackin this region is likely to increase during the forecast period. Western Europeis likely to witness increased penetration of specialty-grade carbon black eventhough its prices are much higher than those of reinforced-grade carbon black.Thus, Europe and North America are likely to be focused by key market players.The market in Latin America and Middle East & Africa is anticipated toexpand at a relatively sluggish rate compared to other regions. Brazil, Mexico,and Argentina account for 80% of vehicles in Latin America. The automotiveindustry in these countries is projected to expand during the forecast period,which is estimated to propel the carbon black market in the region between 2018and 2026. The market in Middle East & Africa is projected to witnesssluggish growth from 2018 to 2026.
