The global carbon black market is expected to surpass USD 25 billion by 2020 growing at a CAGR of over 4% during the forecast period. Carbon black is a deep black colored powder with reinforcing, tinting and conductive properties which are utilized across various sectors. Tire industry is the largest customer of carbon black, wherein it is used to improve strength and longevity of automotive tires by increasing tensile strength and abrasion resistance. However, the global carbon black market is witnessing increased penetration of specialty carbon black which provides sharp color and enhanced conductivity, viscosity and UV protection.

In the global carbon black market report, the following major application sectors were taken into consideration: tires and industrial rubber products, plastics, toners and printing inks, coatings, textile fibers, and others. According to the type of carbon black, the market has been segmented into furnace black, gas black, lamp black, and thermal black.

Market Dynamics of the Global Carbon Black Market:


Rising demand from tire industry
Growth in construction sector
Huge demand from emerging countries


Volatility of raw material prices
Environmental concerns
Substitution by silica

The market report has also been geographically segmented into Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, and the rest of the world. Asia-Pacific represents the largest market for carbon black in the world, with a strong hold of 37% share, wherein majority of the demand emanates from emerging economies such as China and India, on account of expanding tire manufacturing facilities and growth in the construction sector. Asia-Pacific is anticipated to maintain its dominance in the market through 2020, with tire manufacturers shifting production base to developing countries in the region. Developed economies such as the US and Western Europe are expected to display flat demand though the use of specialty blacks is likely to pick up fastest in these regions.

Some of the major companies dominating this market for its products, services, and continuous product developments are:
  • Birla Carbon
  • Bridgestone Corporation
  • Cabot Corporation
