The global carbon black market was valued at USD 24 billion in 2022 and grew at a CAGR of 4% from 2023 to 2032. The market is expected to reach USD 35.52 billion by 2032. The increasing demand for automobiles will drive the growth of the global carbon black market.
When coal tar, vegetable matter, or petroleum products such as fuel oil, fluid tar, and ethylene through incomplete burning with a restricted amount of air, it produces carbon black. Carbon black finds a range of applications across industries. It is primarily used to reinforce rubber in tyres. In tyres and other rubber goods, carbon black serves as a colourant and reinforcing filler. The tyres are black because of the stabilising agent, carbon black. It shields the tyres from UV ray damage, removes heat from automobile areas that typically heat up during driving, and increases tyre durability. It is also used extensively in plastic, printing, and coating applications. It is also used as a pigment and wear-protecting component in paints, plastics, and ink pigments. carbon black is a UV stabiliser. It is also a conductive or insulating agent which finds applications in the packaging industry. Carbon black is odourless. It has a high melting and boiling point. Additionally, it is anticipated to be utilised more frequently in the electronics and battery industries in the coming years.

The process type segment is divided into furnace black, thermal black, acetylene black and others. The furnace black segment dominated the market, with a market share of around 36% in 2022. When hydrocarbons are introduced into a regulated, high-velocity stream of combustion gases, they undergo a breakdown reaction, which results in the formation of carbon black and this process is called furnace black. Furnace Carbon Blacks are mostly used for inks. The primary size, surface, and structure of carbon black can be affected and varied during this production process. Therefore, there is a Furnace Carbon Black kind that is ideal for practically any application. The production of different grades of carbon black is made possible by the furnace black process's tremendous flexibility, making it more economical than alternative methods.
The grade segment is divided into standard grade and speciality grade. The standard grade segment dominated the market, with a share of around 56% in 2022. Standard grade is economical to produce or manufacture. It is also extensively used across industries and, therefore, is high in demand.
The application segment is divided into tires, inks and toners, plastics, non-tire rubber and others. The tire segment dominated the market, with a market share of around 53% in 2022. Carbon black is primarily used in tires, given the numerous benefits it offers. Carbon black is a stabilising agent. The stabilizing property of carbon black makes it highly effective against oxidation, heat, and light changes, keeping the rubber from breaking, thereby retaining its quality and improving its life cycle. It is also commonly used as a reinforcement and colourant in tires.
