DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/z2pr5z/north_america) has announced the addition of the "North America Carbon Black Market Segmented by Product, Application and Geography (2015-2020)" report to their offering.
The North American Carbon Black market has a value of $3.6 billion as of 2014.
Carbon black is mainly used as a pigment and reinforcing filler in automobile tires as it conducts heat away from the tread and belt area of the tire, reducing thermal damage and increasing tire life. These account for 75% of the global usage. Carbon black particles are also employed in some radar absorbent materials, photocopier and laser printer toner as well as inks and paints.
The high tinting strength and stability of carbon black also makes it useful in coloring of resins and films. About 16% of world production goes into belts, hoses, and other non-tire rubber goods and the rest goes into pigment in inks, coatings and plastics. Carbon black improves tensile strength and wear resistance of rubber. This makes it useful in elastomers for aircraft vibration control components such as engine mounts.
Extensive research focused on developing improved grades of Carbon Black is anticipated to increase the scope of their utilization to a greater extent. Innovation in products has become the standard strategy adopted by major players in this sector.
