/EIN News/ -- Luton, Bedfordshire, United Kingdom, Nov. 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Exactitude Consultancy, the market research and consulting wing of Ameliorate Digital Consultancy Private Limited has completed and published the final copy of the detailed research report on the Carbon Black Market.

“The carbon black market was estimated to be USD 18.6 Billion in 2020 and at a CAGR of 4.5% is estimated to grow to USD 27.64 Billion by 2029.”

 Carbon Black Market Overview

Carbon Black is a type of para crystalline carbon that contains 95.05% pure carbon and improves the material's physical and mechanical properties to increase the final product's effectiveness. Carbon Black is primarily used in the production of tires, plastics, mechanical rubber products, printing inks, and toners. Its primary application is in insulating wires and cables due to its ability to absorb UV radiation and convert it to heat. It is also used to make a variety of rubber products and pigments. It is effective as a low-cost rubber strengthening agent in tyres.

The automotive industry is expected to provide a lucrative opportunity for the Carbon Black industry because of the rising trend of tire replacement and the growing demand for high quality and premium tires. Because the tire industry accounts for roughly 3/4 of the total Carbon Black market, the introduction of electric vehicles will drive demand for Carbon Black tires over the assessment period.

Carbon Black is in high demand in a wide range of applications, including rubber reinforcement, paints and coatings, plastics, battery electrodes, and inks and toners.

The electronics industry also contributes to the black carbon market to some extent. As can be seen, black is clearly the most popular color in any line of electronics. The electronics manufacturing production line of laptops, desktops, televisions, mobile phones, and other products has contributed to the growth of the black carbon market.

Carbon Black has historically been driven by tire sales, which account for roughly 70% of total demand. The production of new vehicles, combined with rising disposable income in developed economies, is expected to open up new market opportunities for chemicals.

High Demand for Carbon Black in Rubber Industry”

  • Increased adoption of electric vehicles

Increasing environmental regulations are driving the trend of electric car manufacturing, which is increasing demand for high-quality ingredients in batteries to ensure that drivers arrive safely. The lithium-ion battery has become an indispensable part of modern life, and portable electronic devices such as cell phones, laptop computers, and power tools were among the first to employ this technology. However, electric vehicle batteries must meet stringent performance and economic criteria.

  • Rising demand in the tire industry

Carbon Black is used in the rubber industry to improve certain desirable qualities of tire rubber. Furthermore, the UV resistance provided by this material, as well as its function as an ozone scavenger, aid in the stabilization of tire rubber against UV light and oxidation, as well as the prevention of fissuring or cracking. It also helps in the reduction of thermal damage to the tire and the extension of its lifespan. A growing automobile industry globally is creating a high demand for efficient tires, which is driving market revenue growth.

  • High Demand for Carbon Black in Rubber Industry

Carbon Black is widely used in the rubber industry as well. Carbon Black is used in almost 90% of rubber applications, both automotive and non-automotive. Carbon Black is used in approximately 70% of tire applications and 30% of non-tire applications. Carbon Black is used in industrial rubber products as a rubber reinforcing agent, which has become a source of revenue in the Carbon Black market.

  • The Plastic Industry Supporting the Carbon Black Market

Carbon Black finds a significant market in the plastic polymers market. This is primarily due to the properties of Carbon Black, which can impart color, opacity, electrical conductivity, and resistance to ultra-violet degradation in plastic materials. The growing use of the material in many plastic segments such as molding, film, pipe, fiber, and cable is increasing the size of the global Carbon Black market.


Changes in raw material prices and dangerous gases emitted into the atmosphere during the production of Carbon Black are major restraints on the global Carbon Black market. Another constraint in the Carbon Black industry is the external modification of Carbon Black by other materials such as precipitated silica or nano-silica.


The increased demand for Carbon Black due to its UV protection and conductive properties in plastics is expected to create new opportunities for market expansion.


The market is being challenged by changing rules that are causing Carbon Black to be replaced with silica as a reinforcing agent in tire manufacturing. However, the strengthening of the automotive aftermarket and construction segments in emerging economies presents a significant opportunity for further market expansion.

Segmentation of Carbon Black

By Type: Furnace Black to Remain Fastest-Growing Segment Owing to the Surging Demand from Rubber Producers

  • Furnace Black
  • Channel Black
  • Thermal Black
  • Acetylene Black
  • Lamp Black
  • Others

The furnace black segment is expected to grow at a significantly faster rate, throughout the forecast period. This is due to the increased use of furnace black in industries such as rubber, tire, coating, and cosmetics. Furnace black is widely used in rubber manufacturing processes as a reinforcing agent. The automobile industry's demand for tires is increasing the use of furnace black to reinforce rubber in tires and other rubber products, which is driving revenue growth in this segment.

The thermal black segment is the global market's second largest. The increase can be attributed to its UV absorbent properties, which have increased demand in the plastics industry.

Acetylene black is created by thermal decomposition of acetylene gas. The product's high purity and extreme conductivity enable it to be used in the manufacture of silicon products, electric power cables, and dry cells.

By Applications: Tire Segment to Remain Largest Due to Rapid Growth in Automotive Industry

  • Tire
  • Industrial Rubber Products
  • Electrostatic Discharge Compounds
  • Toners and Printing Inks
  • Coatings
  • Textile Fibers
  • Battery Electrodes
  • Others

Tires are expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. The product accounts for approximately 30% of the total weight of a tire manufactured. Furthermore, rapid growth in the automotive industry has fueled tire consumption, assisting in product demand. Carbon Black is best known for its use in vehicle tires as a pigment and reinforcement material. The automotive market is expected to expand rapidly due to increased vehicle demand, which will drive demand for Carbon Black, particularly for tires and seat belts.

By Grade

  • Standard Carbon Black
  • Specialty Carbon Black

In 2021, standard grade held the lion's share of the Carbon Black market. This dominance is due to the increasing use of standard grade rubber-based products for a variety of industrial applications, such as tires, wires, and cables. Because of its increasing use in the inks and coatings and plastic industries, the specialty grade segment is expected to grow at a rapid pace. For example, approximately 90% of total market demand is for standard grade, and thus the segment is poised to provide high absolute $ opportunity over the forecast period.
