Carbon Black Global Market Report 2023

May 16, 2023

Dublin, May 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "The Global Market for Carbon Black 2023-2033" report has been added to's offering.

Carbon black is a reinforcement and performance additive for plastic and rubber compounds to improve resilience, strength, and conductivity of end products.

Main markets for carbon black are rubber (tyre and other rubber goods) and non-rubber (plastics, cables, conductive additives, inks & paints etc.). Specialty carbon black and recovered carbon black (rCB) are also increasingly important elements of the overall market.

Escalating prices for carbon black oil, a primary element of carbon black, has made the filler more expensive in recent years. Supply chain issues have also affected the market. Addressing these issue is challenging but carbon black demand is forecast to increase in the coming years.
