2022 Carbon Black Industry Analysis


Since entering the 21st century, the rapid development of my country’s automobile industry has driven the rapid development of tires and the entire rubber industry. Among them, carbon black, which is in great demand, is also deeply involved. Carbon black is a very important product in the rubber industry. Its dosage is The second largest raw material after rubber. It plays a vital role in the product quality of tires and rubber products.

Carbon black (carbon black, also known as carbon black) is an amorphous carbon. Light, loose and extremely fine black powder with very large specific surface area, ranging from 10-3000m2/g, which is obtained by incomplete combustion or thermal decomposition of organic matter (natural gas, heavy oil, fuel oil, etc.) under the condition of insufficient air product. The specific gravity 1.8-2.1 is called “gas black” made of natural gas, “lamp black” made of oil, and “acetylene black” made of acetylene. In addition, there are “slot black” and “furnace black”. According to the properties of carbon black, there are “reinforcing carbon black”, “conductive carbon black”, “wear-resistant carbon black” and so on. It can be used as a black dye for the manufacture of Chinese ink, ink, paint, etc., and also used as a reinforcing agent for rubber.

Carbon black is an important chemical raw material, which is closely related to people’s lives and is widely used in many fields. Among these uses, tires are the most used, and are further divided into other rubber products, non-tire rubber products, inks and coatings, plastics, and others.

The sudden coronavirus pandemic in 2020 swept the world and completely disrupted the pace of global economic development. Affected by the epidemic, the global macroeconomy has plunged into a deep recession. The fluctuation of the epidemic has brought economic uncertainty, instability and complexity, as well as the differentiation of regional markets. Due to the continuous fermentation of the epidemic situation and the shrinking of tire terminal demand, the market conditions of carbon black have been seriously affected. It also has a very good role in promoting the activity of the carbon black market. Therefore, with the cooperation of macro policies, capital regulation and demand growth, the carbon black market price will hit a record high in the first half of 2022.

Affected by the epidemic, downstream demand will continue to be weak in 2022. It is understood that car registrations in the EU fell by 13.7% year-on-year, and the United States fell by 18% compared with the same period last year. Among them, the sharp decline in tire demand in Europe and the United States is mainly due to record inflation and supply chain terminals. At the same time, as the U.S. Federal Reserve continues to tighten monetary policy, it has sparked fears that the global economy will fall into recession. Various signs show that raw material prices continue to be high, while downstream tire demand has declined significantly, and the structural oversupply of production capacity has resulted in the carbon black market having no right to speak and can only seek survival in the cracks. Therefore, carbon black companies must balance raw material procurement with market supply and demand in order to achieve sustainable development.
The increase of new carbon black production capacity is bound to increase the competitive pressure between industries, and at the same time, the speed of eliminating low-end and backward production capacity is further accelerated. Enterprises should open up the development space of carbon black high-end production capacity, and continue to make breakthroughs and innovations in the rubber products and tire industries to a higher level. development of the carbon black industry.
