Negative active mass (NAM) electrodes of industrial batteries and automotive batteries have used carbon black as a conductive additive for many years. Carbon black can enhance the electrode's electrical conductivity in conventional lead-acid batteries, as well as boost formation efficiency and lower residual sulfate levels. These properties of Carbon black make it crucial in lead battery systems.

 According to Experian's registration data (via Automotive News), there were 257,507 BEV registrations in the first three months of 2023, up 63% from the same period last year and accounting for about 7 percent of the Automotive market in the United States. This increase in demand for EV’s is likely to continue and drive up the requirement of Carbon Black in batteries.

Strong Automotive Growth

Expansion of the automotive sector is a significant driver of the carbon black market as automotive parts, including seals, hoses, belts, and gaskets, use carbon black. When tires are made, carbon black is incorporated as a reinforcing filler to improve their performance. The demand for carbon black in the automotive industry is anticipated to increase due to rising vehicle production and rising consumer demand for lightweight and fuel-efficient vehicles.

According to MarkLines, the new vehicle sales in the United States during May 2023 witnessed a rise of 22.8% on a year-on-year basis along with a 1.3% hike on a monthly basis. This increase in new automotive sales in the United States will increase the number of automotive manufacturers which will drive up the demand for carbon black.

Stringent Emission Standards

Regulatory adjustments and changing emission standards significantly impact the carbon black market. Stricter laws are being implemented by governments all over the world to cut emissions and enhance air quality. Hydrocarbon feedstock must be burned in order to produce carbon black, which may cause pollutant emissions.

In accordance with the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP), the new action completes the residual risk and technology reviews (RTR) conducted for the major source categories of Carbon Black Production as well as the technology review conducted for the Carbon Black Production area sources. To address hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions not previously covered by NESHAP, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has added new emissions standards for the major source categories of Carbon Black Production during November 2021.

Additionally, the demand for high-performance tires is driven by tighter emission regulations for automobiles, which in turn drives up the need for carbon black in tire production.

Products containing high-performance and specialty carbon black are in high demand in the United States market. In order to meet their specific requirements, various industries, including automotive, aerospace, electronics, and specialty coatings, call for carbon black with particular properties.

For Example, the Raven P5 Ultra Carbon Black from Birla carbon is a high-performance black for adhesive and sealant applications. When used in adhesive and sealant formulations, produces a smooth surface finish and has good compatibility. It can be used in structural formulations due to the moderate surface area. The moderate structure improves rheology and permits a quicker, more thorough dispersion. The product can be used in polyurethane, epoxy, silicone, acrylic, or hybrid adhesive systems.

Specialty carbon blacks with improved reinforcement and other desired qualities are in high demand as a result of this. To meet the unique requirements of domestic industries, United States carbon black producers concentrate on creating and supplying these high-value, specialty grades.

Huge Infrastructure Projects

The United States experienced significant growth in the construction industry at the beginning of 2023 as a number of non-residential projects got underway, including the Golden Triangle Ethylene Cracker Plant, several energy storage projects, the Florida lane expansion, and college stadiums. According to we build value, a 27% increase in new construction projects starts between the fourth quarter of 2022 and the first quarters of 2023.

The construction and infrastructure industries use carbon black extensively. It is utilized in the creation of asphalt, which is extensively used in the building of roads. Asphalt benefits from carbon black's increased strength, resilience, and UV resistance. The need for carbon black in building supplies is anticipated to rise in the United States as infrastructure development projects in the country are increasing.

Impact of COVID-19

The global supply chains, manufacturing processes, and consumer demand in a number of industries were all affected by the pandemic. As a result, the demand for carbon black which is crucial to sectors like automotive, tire manufacturing, construction, and industrial manufacturing, decreased. Supply chains in the United States were disrupted by trade restrictions, lockdowns, and logistical issues which included the supply of raw materials for the manufacture of carbon black. Delays in the delivery of feedstock and other necessary materials could impact the ability of carbon black manufacturers to produce their products. The pandemic hampered operations at carbon black production facilities. To ensure worker safety, manufacturing facilities reduced staffing and implemented safety procedures. These actions had an impact on the production capacity, along with temporary plant closures and reduced operating capacities.

Impact of Russia-Ukraine War

The war between Russia and Ukraine had little to no direct effect on the United States Carbon Black market. However, there were a few indirect consequences of the geopolitical unrest on the United States market like the decrease in import demand of the United States automotive from European countries. Since imports of Russian natural gas are banned by a number of European nations, the United States stepped up to meet Europe’s requirements. The supply situation for Carbon Black in the United States market became more constrained as a result of the rise in exports of feedstocks (natural gas) from the United States to Europe. However, as time went on, the increased production of natural gas in the United States began to benefit domestic manufacturers of Carbon Black as the availability of the feedstock.
