Carbon Black market frequently asked questions
The global carbon black market stood at 15.78 MMT as of 2017. The demand is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.5-4.0 per cent until 2022.
Producers in the Asian region have an advantage in the carbon black industry over the western players as they have an abundance of coal-based feedstock. However, western producers have better process technology which gives them a 35 percent low operational cost than the Asian players in the market. High supply and demand for carbon black market share can be seen in areas, such as North America, Europe, and APAC.
Some of the top suppliers in the global carbon black market are Aditya Birla Carbon, Cabot, Orion, Jiangxi Black Cat, and CSRC.
It is expected that the demand from the tire and rubber industry will continue to lead the growth and impact the future of carbon black industry. Environmental regulations and low-profit margins are the leading causes of capacity reductions. However, these capacity reductions won't cause any major impact as enough capacity is available.
The carbon black market price and availability are driven by the CBFS in the region. The US and European markets have a balanced dependence on crude and coal-based CBFS, while the Asian market depends on coal-based CBFS.
Carbon Black market report transcript
Carbon Black Market Size and Global Outlook
The global carbon black capacity stands at 15.78 MMT. Demand is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.5–4.0 percent until 2024
Demand from the tire and rubber industry is expected to lead the carbon black industry growth
About 0.91 MMT of capacity is expected to be added in Asia and Russia during 2020-24. Environmental regulations and low profit margins are the major reasons for capacity reductions. Impact of these capacity reductions is expected to be minimal, as there is enough capacity available
Demand Market Outlook
- Carbon black pricing and availability are highly driven by the CBFS in the region. The US and Europe carbon black market have balanced dependence on crude and coal-based CBFS, while the Asian market is highly dependent on coal-based CBFS
Supply Market Outlook
