According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Carbon Black Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024”, the global carbon black market size reached US$ 11.7 Billion in 2018. Carbon black is one of the top fifty industrial chemicals that are manufactured worldwide. It is the commercial form of solid carbon which is produced under extremely controlled processes. The specifically engineered aggregates of carbon particles obtained from these procedures may vary in size, porosity, particle size, shape, and surface chemistry. Typically, carbon black consists of more than 95% pure carbon with nominal quantities of hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen. The utilization of carbon black can range from the electric conductive agent for high-technology materials to black coloring pigment in newspaper inks. At present, the market is witnessing positive growth on account of wide-scale use of carbon black as rubber reinforcement in tires.
Global Carbon Black Market Trends:
Over the past few years, there has been a rise in the demand for specialty-grade carbon black, which has encouraged manufacturers to expand their production capacities and further invest in introducing sustainable manufacturing process. For instance, Phillips Carbon Black Limited, an Indian carbon black manufacturer, has recently announced that it is shifting its focus towards value-added rubber blacks and specialty blacks. Besides, the company is investing in enhancing technical capabilities for the development of new grades for non-rubber and rubber applications. Furthermore, Birla Carbon Spain (BCS) has invested an amount of nearly EUR 5 Million for introducing energy-efficient and sustainable projects and increasing its production capacity from 80,000 tons to 95,000 tons per year. Other than this, Germany-based general contractor, MMEC Mannesmann and Black Bear, a Dutch recovered carbon black (rCB) manufacturer, have entered into a strategic partnership to launch a tested technology in the carbon black industry. This technology will help in satisfying the escalating demand for rCB while having a sustainable impact on the emerging issue of tire waste. Attributing to the aforementioned factors, the global carbon black market size is projected to reach US$ 14.5 Billion by 2024, at an anticipated CAGR of around 3.6% during 2019-2024.
