Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Specialty Carbon Black Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2018" report to their offering.

Specialty carbon black is obtained through high-end refining processes. Specialty carbon blacks, also known as pigment blacks, are highly pure and more crystalline form of carbon black with lower levels of sulphur, ash and metals, as well as physical impurities. Specialty grades have extended the market for carbon black by providing characteristics, such as color, rheology control, and conductivity, as compared to reinforcement properties provided by commodity carbon blacks. This has extended the applications of carbon black in coatings, plastics and printing ink industries.

According to Global Specialty Carbon Black Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2018, the global specialty carbon black market is expected to grow at the CAGR of 5% by 2018, in terms of volume. The report adds that the market for specialty carbon black has remained consolidated and there are only few players operating globally. This can be attributed to the high inclination of carbon black manufacturers towards commodity carbon black as a result of high usage for tyre production in the rapidly growing automotive industry. However, the specialty carbon black market has witnessed entry of new players during the last 3-4 years, either through mergers and acquisitions or shift in focus of rubber black players towards specialty carbon black. The entry of these players can be attributed to high profit margins associated with specialty carbon black. In addition, demand for high quality specialty carbon blacks is also benefiting producers, as they are being majorly demanded by end-user industries, such as printing ink and coatings.
