Moreover, Specialty Carbon Black is used to modify the mechanical and rheological properties of sealants and adhesives as it helps to reduce product weight, improvise flexibility of material, conserve resources along with reductions in operational costs in building and construction. Hence, increased use of sealants & adhesives in construction and industrial activities are expected to impel the market growth of global Specialty Carbon black.

In first half of 2020, due to the unprecedented outbreak of novel corona virus, majority of the industries were severely affected due to the halt in the manufacturing sector. Alongside, disturbance in supply and demand chain followed by the imposition of lockdowns across the nations further impeded the demand of the material. It resulted into the huge slump in the growth curve of Specialty Carbon Black growth as its demand was declined due to the major hit in end use industries like Automotive, Consumer Goods, Construction and Others. However, since the resumption in the industrial operations with their full efficacy after the upliftment of lockdowns in the latter half of 2020 and a speedy recovery in the demand for Specialty Carbon Black has been witnessed and further expected to boost in the forecast period due to high demand from end use industries.

Region wise, in 2020, Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest share of over 45% in global Specialty Carbon Black market followed by North America and Europe owing to the flourishing industries in the region including construction, automotive and Plastics. Moreover, rapid industrialization, growing population and the presence of large consumer base are the key factors backing up its market growth in the next ten years.

Companies operating in the global Specialty Carbon Black market are using organic strategies such as product innovation, business expansion, among others to increase their share in the market. In August 2021, Phillips Carbon Black Limited (PCBL) has announced to invest about Rs 800 crore in a green field plant near Chennai and around 300-400 crore in the brownfield expansion for Specialty Carbon Black near Mundra (India) over the next two years.
