3.5 - 4.0 Percent
Category Intelligence on Carbon Black covers the following
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 2019–2022. 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
Asian producers have an advantage in the carbon black industry over the western players, due to the abundant availability of feedstock (coal based)
Western producers have low operational cost, due to their better process technology, which gives 35 percent reduced input cost than the Asian players in the carbon black market
Areas like North America, Europe and APAC have a high supply and high demand of carbon black market share
The level of consolidation of each supply market varies greatly. The supply market capacity for the major markets is described. The differences in the availability of the raw material as well as the better use of technology in certain countries create cost structure variations. These variations and the causative factors are also stated.
