World Carbon Black

World demand for carbon black is forecast to rise 4.3 percent annually through 2013. Growth in the non-tire rubber product market will outpace growth in the dominant motor vehicle tire sector, while the smaller special blacks market will rise the fastest. The Asia/Pacific region will post the strongest gains.

This study analyzes the 9.4 million metric ton world carbon black industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by market (tire and tire components, non-tire rubber products, special blacks), world region (e.g., Asia/Pacific, North America, Western Europe) and for 25 major countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 20 industry players, including Cabot, Evonik Industries and OCI.
