Carbon Black Market Size Worth $35.52 Billion by 2032 – Increasing Government Infrastructural Spending & Private Investment to Explode Demand


The increasing demand for automobiles, given the rising disposable income of the growing population, will bode well for the market. The growth of building and construction, automotive, electronics, consumer goods, textiles, and aerospace industries has facilitated the growth of the rubber industry. Asia Pacific emerged as the largest market for the global carbon black market, with a 40% share of the market revenue in 2022.

Newark, Nov. 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Brainy Insights estimates that the USD 24 billion in 2022 global carbon black market will reach USD 35.52 billion by 2032. Carbon black is created when the incomplete burning of coal tar, vegetable matter, or petroleum compounds, including fuel oil, fluid tar, and ethylene, occurs with a limited amount of air. Numerous industries use carbon black for various purposes. Its main purpose is to strengthen the rubber in tyres. Carbon black is used in tyres and other rubber products as a filler and colourant. The stabilising chemical, carbon black, gives the tyres their black colour. It reduces heat from parts of the car that normally warm up when driving, protects the tyres from UV ray damage, and lengthens the life of the tyres. In the printing, coating, and plastic industries, it is also widely employed. It is also utilised in paints, polymers, and ink pigment as a pigment and wear-protecting ingredient. Black carbon serves as a UV stabiliser. Additionally, it is an insulator and conductive agent that is used in the packaging sector. The black carbon has no smell. Its melting and boiling points are quite high. In the upcoming years, it is also expected to be used more frequently in the electronics and battery industries.

Market Dynamics

Driver: The expansion of the automobile sector.

The market will benefit from the expanding demand for cars due to the growing population’s increased disposable income. The market expansion of the automotive sector will also be aided by the numerous competitors in the industry offering a wide variety of vehicles and the annual release of new models. Because carbon black has stabilising and lasting qualities, it is often employed in producing automotive tyres. As a result, the expansion of the automotive industry will aid in expanding the global carbon black market.

Restraints: The price fluctuations of raw materials.

The market’s growth is hampered by escalating geopolitical tensions, trade uncertainties that cause bottlenecks in the supply chain, economic crises, and ongoing trade conflicts between major nations, all of which have an immediate influence on the cost of raw materials in the black market for carbon. The supply, demand, and retail pricing of materials based on carbon black are all impacted by changes in the price of raw materials, which creates uncertainty in the market and slows growth.

Opportunities: The expansion of the rubber sector.

The rubber sector has grown with the expansion of the building and construction, automotive, electronics, consumer goods, textile, and aerospace industries. The expansion of these businesses is ascribed to several factors, including growing disposable income, population growth, rising government infrastructure spending, and private investment. Since carbon black is widely utilised in the production of rubber, these market improvements will have a beneficial effect on the market’s growth. As a result, the expanding rubber sector is encouraging the expansion of the market.

Challenge: environmental concerns.
