San Francisco, May 19, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
The global carbon black market is expected to reach USD 28.05 billion by 2022, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Increasing automotive sales and consequent rise in tire production is expected to drive industry growth over the forecast period.High demand for plastics and high performance coatings in automotive manufacturing is also expected to have a positive influence on the market growth. Carbon black provides electrical conductivity and antistatic properties to many plastic products ranging from insulation materials to highly conductive areas.
Policies aimed at reducing GHG emissions during carbon black production processes may hamper growth trajectory over the forecast period. Since the production process is highly energy intensive, optimization of processes and greener & sustainable alternatives are paramount to tackle such issues in future.
