Global Specialty carbon black Market to surpass USD 5.2 billion by 2030 from USD 2.5 billion in 2020 at a CAGR of 6.8% in the coming years, i.e., 2021-30.
Specialty carbon black is a refined chemical made by burning hydrocarbons with a small amount of air. Specialty carbon black, also known as pigment black, is the cleanest form of carbon black, with the least amount of ash, Sulphur, metals, and other contaminants. Furnace black, thermal black, acetylene black, and lampblack are the four techniques used to create specialty carbon black. Rubber and commercial carbon black are two more types of carbon black. Specialty carbon black is one of them. Tires, belts, hoses, gaskets, diaphragms, vibration isolation devices, bushings, air springs, chassis bumpers, and various types of pads, boots, wiper blades, fascia, conveyor wheels, and grommets all use specialty carbon black as a strengthening agent. Refuse sacks, industrial bags, photographic containers, agriculture mulch film, stretch wrap, and thermoplastic molding applications for automotive, electrical/electronics, household appliances, and blow-molded containers are just a few of the uses for specialty carbon black.
Global Specialty carbon black market is expected to project a notable CAGR of 6.8% in 2030.
Increased product demand as reinforcing agents in hoses, belts, tyres, and molding plastic parts is likely to drive the market. One of the most common applications for specialty carbon black compounds is conductive polymers, which have better-conducting characteristics than rubbers and polymers. It also lowers electrical resistance by forming a conductive network with the polymer and rubber. Over the last decade, economies such as China, Mexico, Brazil, and India have experienced remarkable development in terms of industrial output and GDP. This has resulted in increased demand for battery electrodes as a result of increased discretionary spending.
Global Specialty carbon black market: Segments
Plastic segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2020-30
Global Specialty carbon black market is segmented by application into Plastic, Ink, The plastic application sector led the specialty carbon black market in 2020, and it is projected to continue to do so in the coming years. It is also predicted to have the fastest growth rate over the forecast period.
Printing & Packaging segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2020-30
Global Specialty carbon black market is divided by end-user into Transportation, Industrial, Building & Construction, Printing & Packaging, and Others. Due to strong demand from the household products, food & beverage, and pharmaceutical sectors, the printing & packaging industry dominated the market for specialty carbon black and is likely to stay dominant during the projection period.
Better conductivity characteristics and demand in polymer industry
The rise in demand for polymer industries and its widespread use in metallurgy are projected to propel the specialty carbon market forward in the foreseeable timeframe. Furthermore, the specialty carbon market is expected to increase due to its better conductive properties, such as low Sulphur content and metal help in providing UV radiation protection. Over the last decade, economies such as China, Mexico, Brazil, and India have experienced remarkable development in terms of industrial output and GDP. This has resulted in increased demand for battery electrodes as a result of increased discretionary spending, which is further driving the market.
Increasing demand for non-rubber applications and in fuel-efficient cars
Furthermore, the specialty carbon black materials aid in the manufacturing of lightweight and fuel-efficient passenger cars, which is expected to cushion the specialty carbon market’s expansion. Moreover, the increased demand for non-rubber applications will give further chances for the specialty carbon market to grow in the coming years.
Increased pressure from government and health issues
Carbon black is expected to stifle the expansion of the specialty carbon market in the timeframe period due to increased pressure from governments and other environmental protection groups. Inhaling carbon black particles can irritate the lungs, eyes, and other organs, affecting health and causing serious diseases, which could stymie the specialized carbon market’s growth in the near future.
