The demand for carbon black market is expected to grow at a healthy rate during the forecast period, 2018-2023, due to the rise in demand from tire industry, in addition to construction and manufacturing sectors. Global carbon market is highly competitive, with all the major players investing heavily in Research and Development in order to improve the quality of their product. This may provide future opportunities for the players in the market.

Growth in Construction Sector

The global construction sector is expected to expand over the next decade to a nominal value of more than USD 6.0 trillion. The driving force behind this is the Asian construction market. This market will account for the largest share in the construction market in the world, as governments look to develop infrastructure that has seen years of underinvestment in an effort to unlock more sustainable economic growth. Other regions, such as South America, Middle East & Africa will register robust growth, as governments remain committed to infrastructure investment. The key areas of expected growth in construction market are transport, energy, social infrastructure, schools, hospitals, defense infrastructure, etc. This rapid growth in the construction industry will act as a potential driver for the carbon black market.

Tires and Industrial Rubber Products - The fastest growing segment by usage

Carbon Black is required majorly in tires of automotive vehicles as a filler and as a strengthening reinforcing agent. The stable growth of automotive production in North America has increased the demand for carbon black from the tires and industrial products segment. Additionally, with the increasing demand for lightweight vehicles and electronic vehicles in the region, the demand for carbon black shall further rise during the forecast period. Other than tires, it is also required for various molded and extruded industrial rubber products, such as conveyor belts, gaskets, air springs, grommets, vibration isolation devices, and hoses. Global carbon black market is witnessing an increasing trend of specialty carbon black, which provides enhanced conductivity, viscosity, and UV protection. The market for specialty carbon blacks is also expected to grow due to increase in requirements for non-rubber products. Moreover, as special blacks commands higher price, they are beneficial for sellers as they can offer better margins.

Asia-Pacific to Lead the Market

Asia-Pacific is estimated to be the largest market for carbon black in the world, with a 37% share. Globally, Asia Pacific is known for manufacturing cheapest carbon black. This is driving the companies in North America and Europe to shift their manufacturing facilities to Asia-Pacific region. The low labor and lands costs in Asia-Pacific region are likely to shift the focus of the manufacturer’s attention from North America and Europe. Majority of the demand emanates from emerging economies, such as China and India, on account of expansion of tire manufacturing facilities and growth in the construction sector.
