Carbon Black Market To Reach USD 38.4 Billion By 2032, Says DataHorizzon Research

The carbon black market size was valued at USD 25.6 Billion in 2023 and is expected to reach a market size of USD 38.4 Billion by 2032 at a CAGR of 4.6%.

Fort Collins, Colorado, April 16, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

The growing popularity of carbon black in diverse industries drives the industry's growth.

Another pivotal force driving the expansion of the carbon black market is the increasing need for specialty carbon black across diverse applications, including plastics, coatings, and inks. Specialty carbon black provides upgraded features such as enhanced conductivity, UV protection, and pigmentation. According to the United States International Trade Commission (USITC), the global utilization of specialty carbon black outpaced conventional carbon black in 2022. This trajectory is anticipated to persist as industries pursue superior-quality, more adaptable carbon black offerings.

Amid mounting environmental apprehensions, there is an increasing scope for advancing and accepting sustainable and eco-conscious alternatives to carbon black. Manufacturers are directing resources toward research and development endeavors to formulate carbon black products with reduced environmental footprints, including those sourced from renewable feedstocks or manufactured via cleaner processes. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has explored the feasibility of utilizing plant-derived feedstocks like soybean oil and pyrolysis oil from wood waste to generate carbon black. The successful implementation of these sustainable substitutes holds substantial potential for growing the carbon black market while simultaneously addressing environmental constraints.
