Specialty Carbon Black Market Size Worth $4.0 Billion By 2027

Published On: October 20, 2020

The global specialty carbon black market size is projected to touch USD 4.0 billion by 2027, as per a new report by Million Insights. The market is projected to register 8.9% CAGR over the forecast duration. Increasing use of the product in agriculture mulch film, refuse sacks, industrial bags and photographic containers are driving the market growth. In lithium-ion batteries, graphite powder and specialty carbon black are used in order to improve the electrical conductivity.

It displays excellent properties such as stability at higher voltage, improved adhesion and less solvent. Owing to this, specialty black powder is increasingly used in applications such as grid storage, E-bike, mild hybrid vehicle, hybrid vehicles and telecom industries. In addition, it provides electrical antistatic and conductivity features to plastic materials.

The product is formulated in five categories such as lampblack, acetylene black, furnace black, thermal black and channel process. In these processes, different raw materials such as acetylene gas, coal gas, petroleum gas and natural gas are used. Fluctuation in crude oil prices because of the supply-demand gap, political imbalance and seasonal variations are driving the use of alternate fuel.

The specialty carbon black market key participants are Birla Carbon, Continental Carbon Company, Cabot Corp. and Omsk Carbon Group among others. Major market players are focusing on procuring raw material conveniently to gain a competitive edge over their peers.
