·6-min read

Dublin, June 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Carbon Black Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026" report has been added to's offering.

The global carbon black market reached a value of US$ 18.2 Billion in 2020. Carbon black is elemental carbon that is produced by partial combustion or decomposition of hydrocarbons such as oil and natural gas under controlled temperature and pressure. It mainly consists of carbon along with small amounts of hydrogen, oxygen, sulfur and nitrogen. Carbon black is most commonly produced by the furnace method that provides high yield and substantial control over the particle structure and size of the output, making it ideal for mass production. It finds wide application across various industries such as automotive and paint. It is also used as a filler and a strengthening agent in tires and several rubber products.

The growing automotive industry is one of the key factors driving the market growth. Carbon black is extensively used in the inner liners, sidewalls and treads of tires as it increases their strength and longevity. It is also applied in various extruded and molded industrial rubber products such as air springs, belts, hoses, gaskets and types of conveyor wheels and grommets. Furthermore, the flourishing construction and manufacturing sectors are also driving the market growth. These sectors extensively utilize industrial rubber and other related equipment, in which carbon black forms an integral part. Moreover, in the paints and coatings industry, it is used in jet black paints which act as a protective coating to various products. Apart from this, as the mixture of carbon black and cement results in an enhanced uniformity, surface hardness, tensile strength and compressive strength, there has been an increase in the demand for carbon black in the construction industry. Looking forward, the publisher expects the global carbon black market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
