The Global Market for Carbon Black to 2025

The Global Market for Carbon Black to 2025

Carbon black (CB) is industrially manufactured in the form of hundreds of defined commercial grades that vary in their primary particle size, aggregate size and shape, porosity, surface area, and chemistry.
The global demand for carbon black was ~12.625 million tons in 2016, mainly for application as reinforcing fillers in tires, automotive non-tire and general rubber products. Other smaller markets include paints and coatings, printing inks and toners and plastics. The value of this market is approximately $12.9-$13 billion.
High value opportunity markets have been identified for specialty carbon blacks conductive materials, ESD shielding, batteries and advanced insulation.
