The continued expansion of the tyre industry and other industries with end uses for carbon black such as construction, manufacturing, and printing is expected to strongly drive the production capacity for the carbon black market. As quality-of-life increases in emerging countries, there is increasing ownership of personal automobiles, which is promoting the expansion in the tyre sector. Several specialty products such as sealants, adhesives, coatings, and others are finding increasing end-uses in developed regions such as North America and Europe. This sector is also steadily growing in emerging economies like China and India. These developments are expected to be a significant factor in contributing to growth in the global carbon black market.
