Pune, India, Dec. 17, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global carbon black market size is expected to showcase considerable growth by reaching USD 17,027.1 million by 2027 while exhibiting a CAGR of 4.4% between 2020 and 2027. This growth is attributed to the rising rubber industry and the increasing incidence of road fatalities that are propelling the demand for advanced carbon black globally. This information is published by Fortune Business Insights™, in its latest report, titled, “Carbon Black Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Type (Furnace Black, Channel Black, Thermal Black, Acetylene Black, Others), Grade (Standard Grade, Specialty Grade), Application (Tire, Non-Tire Rubber, Inks & Coatings, Plastic, Others), and Regional Forecast, 2020-2027.” The report further mentions that the market stood at USD 12,639.2 million in 2019 and is likely to gain momentum during the forecast period.

Supply Chain Disruption in Automotive Industry to Hinder Growth

The lockdown imposed by the government agencies to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus has led to a major disruption in the supply chain operations. This is due to the suspension of industrial processes and reduced workforce. The fewer availability of raw materials is further leading to a large-scale interruption in industrial activities that is likely to hinder the market growth during the forecast period.

Carbon black is produced by an incomplete combustion process of heavy petroleum products such as coal tar, ethylene cracking tar, and FCC tar. Owing to its high coloring power, it is extensively used as a pigment for several industrial applications such as automotive, electronics, inks & coatings, and others.
