Carbon black acts as a structure reinforcing additive in a comprehensive range of rubber-based products. Higher carbon petroleum products, such as coal tar, ethylene, cracking tar, and FCC tar are some of the raw materials used to produce carbon black through a process of partial combustion. The major application of the product is in the manufacturing of vehicle tires. Carbon black is also a powerful coloring agent and possesses excellent conductive properties which allow its usage in inks, heat-molded plastics, electric wire coatings, car fenders, semiconductors, and magnetic tapes, among others.

North American Market, By Application

The tire & rubber goods segment dominated more than 75% of the North America carbon black market share in 2020 and is anticipated to expand at over 6.1% CAGR till 2027. The strong market growth is underpinned by the robust regional automotive sector. For instance, in 2019, the US produced some 10.8 million cars & trucks, and the automotive industry in the nation generated over USD 560 billion in revenue in 2020. Additionally, the high rate of adoption of electric vehicles and the improving sales performance of luxury cars in North America is further fueling the market revenue growth.

The COVID-19 outbreak had a severe blow on the carbon black industry in 2020. The market witnessed a significant downfall in revenue generations while representing a decline of over 9 percent in terms of volume within the same year. This was a result of nationwide imposed lockdowns, halted manufacturing operations, restricted mobility, and plummeted consumer spending power. However, government initiatives to weaken the impact of the economy by the health crisis and resuming economic activities are likely to support the industry rebound in the coming years.

The furnace black segment contributed more than USD 2.7 billion revenue in 2020 and is set to observe around 6.2% growth rate through 2027. The production method involves the injection of coal oil or petroleum oil as feedstocks into high-temperature gases to achieve partial combustion. The method is mostly favored owing to its high yield capacity and the ability to control product properties, such as structure or particle size. Hence, the furnace black process is highly adopted for producing carbon black for numerous applications from coloring to rubber reinforcement.
