Table of Contents

Volume demand for carbon black has a direct association with the end use industries, with the automotive industry taking precedence, given that the largest quantity of this material is utilized by tires and other rubber products largely used in automobiles. Any volatility in the production of tires and, to a lower degree, mechanical rubber products has a corresponding effect on demand for carbon black. Tire production, in turn, is heavily reliant on automobile production, which has been posting steady growth over the past few years and is likely to continue doing so.

However, the concept of tire retreading has its own pluses and minuses. While increase in retreading is apt to hit new tire production, the market for carbon black stands to gain since the material is used in both instances. Technological developments and innovative applications in these sectors will also be instrumental in fuelling demand for carbon black.

Other industries that make use of carbon black, albeit to a lesser extent, include plastics, printing inks and paints and coatings. Of these, plastics and paints and coatings are widely utilized by the construction sector, which has been posting steady to rapid growth depending upon the region. For instance, the mature markets of the developed world, such as North America and Western Europe are witnessing stagnation in their construction industries, while the emerging economies of Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Eastern Europe are flourishing construction hubs. Therefore, it goes without saying that demand for carbon black in the latter regions is bound to record faster growth than the former due to impetus in construction activity aimed at boosting infrastructure.
