LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Carbon black (CB) end-use consumers are shifting today from Western European producers to comparatively low-cost Eastern European region. This shift leads to new challenges for Western CB to reach end-use markets. However moving to low-cost production is likely to bring benefits only temporally and CB manufacturers will stay dependent on western CB markets for the majority of their business.
The demand from non-tire rubber product markets will grow at a larger pace than the demand from the traditionally dominant motor vehicle tire producers. Overall the demand on the global CB market is forecast to indicate a 4-5% growth annually through 2013. Most promising regional markets in terms of development and growth will be the Asia-Pacific ones.
