Title: Carbon Black Price, Pricing, Market Analysis | ChemAnalysis

Carbon Black Pricing Overview

Asia   Against the backdrop of continued global
recession in the automobile industry, the Asian
Carbon Black industry registered substantial
gains compared to its Q2 performance. Sharp
pick-up in demand for replacement tires seemed
potentially significant to negate the impact of
COVID-19 outbreak on the automotive supply chain.
The demand for Rubber Carbon Black Specialty
Carbon Black in China has recently gained
traction because the COVID recovery rate in China
turned in favor. Producers reported considerable
benefits from a sudden consumer shift towards
personal mobility as economies opened to lift
lockdown restrictions. With ASEAN and China being
important markets in terms of tires and Carbon
Black trading, Carbon Black prices picked up in
India to assess around USD 1250 per MT CFR. For

ta/carbon-black-42   North America The North
American Carbon Black markets witnessed
back-to-back increment in the product prices
during Q3 FY20. The uptrend seemed strongly
supported by increasing cost of operations,
labor, and tightening environmental regulations
in line with the revision of sustainable
manufacturing standards. Cabot announced upwards
revision in the Carbon Black pricing in
mid-August equivalent to USD 66 per tonne, amid
better capacity utilization on the back of
recovering rubber tire manufacturing in the US.
In addition, Tokai Carbon the largest carbon
black producer in North America, announced rise
in prices for all its Carbon Black products in
the US by USD 40-50 per tonne during the quarter.
This was primarily due to tighter regulations
imposed on the bunker fuel oil Sulphur content by
international Marine Organization (IMO). On the
demand front, manufacturers observed that demand
for Carbon Black recovered rather well in Q3,
versus the historic plunge experienced during the
second quarter.

Europe   The European Carbon Black market was
struggling to maintain its margins as the economy
battled to stand against the COVID-led headwinds.
The third quarter outlook however, seemed to gain
strength from the tyre applications as driving
remained the preferred mode of transportation
with people preferring to maintain stringent
physical distancing amid surging cases. Demand
for Carbon Black for manufacturing ink for
printed materials remained an area of weakness,
keeping the specialty Carbon Black sales largely
pressured.  How we can help ChemAnalyst

Methodology ChemAnalyst gathers information
through primary research surveys conducted with
various Carbon Black manufacturers, spread across
the domestic and international markets, suppliers
and dealers/distributors to gain insights
into value-chains and demand-supply scenario to
assess the market situation. Thorough study of
the companys annual reports and secondary
sources such as exhaustive search on credible
paid databases, including our internal database
is done to verify the information. All the
collected information is analyzed, evaluated and
presented in chronological order to depict a
meaningful and clear picture of the concerned
market.   Our dedicated team of industry experts
comprehensively monitors and analyzes various
aspects of the Global Carbon Black market. The
team analyzes various industrial segments,
strategic viewpoints and provides an analysis of
the industrys performance in the long run. This
would enable our clients in efficiently plan
their future investments, mitigate risk,
understand the cost dynamics and strike out a
balance amidst market volatility.   Critical
examination of the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on
the global supply chains and shift in demand
patterns with change in buying behavior of
consumers across the globe.   Several ongoing
development projects across industries are
tracked, followed by the details of major
projects in the development stage, which can
positively or negatively influence the Global
Carbon Black market.   Pricing is captured
through exhaustive primary interviews with
domestic and international manufacturers, traders
and importers and customers on monthly and yearly
basis.   Finally, region-specific markets for
Carbon Black are analyzed and region-wise demand
pattern is tracked.

About Carbon black is composed of fine particles
of carbon. It is produced from incomplete
combustion of natural gas or petroleum, primarily
residual heavy fuel oil from petroleum refining,
coal tar distillation and Ethylene at
temperatures above 2000 deg Fahrenheit. The
characteristics of Carbon Black vary with the
manufacturing process involved. Based upon
variations in particle size, structure and
purity, and the method of production, Carbon
Black can be categorized into lampblack, furnace
black, bone black, channel black, acetylene and
thermal black. Furnace black dominates the global
market, holding about 90 of global Carbon Black
output with thermal black making up the remaining
volume. Lampblack, bone black and acetylene black
are the specialty products. Carbon Black is used
as a reinforcing, pigmenting, UV stabilizing or
conductive agent, mainly in rubber applications.
More than 60 of the worlds Carbon Black is
consumed in the tyre industry. Non-tyre rubber
applications such as car hoses, tubes, belts and
gaskets account for nearly 25 of the total
demand, while the rest is consumed in specialty
blacks used in paints and coatings, printing
inks, plastics toners.
