Carbon Black - Category Spend Analysis

 

According to procurement analysts at SpendEdge, a key growth driver for the global carbon black market is the rising demand from the automotive industry. Carbon black is a crucial element that is indispensable for the automotive industry. It has been estimated that roughly 0.014─0.044 tons of carbon black are used in a single automobile. Its most prominent use in the automotive industry is in the manufacture of tires. Some of the other important applications of carbon black in the automotive industry are to provide a deep black finish to leather surfaces and components such as dashboards and steering wheels, coating applications where it is used to provide the highest dark gradient and gloss finish to coatings, in engine parts for enhancing heat resistance capabilities, and for imparting conductivity to fuel lines to prevent build-up of static electricity.

Moreover, the automobile industry has recorded steady growth in sales for the past few years and is expected to experience significant growth in volumes, with majority of growth coming from markets such as China, Southeast Asia, and India.

Carbon Black - Procurement Best Practices

 

Buyers need to engage with suppliers who can offer support in price and demand forecasting to minimize risks associated with fluctuations in market prices during the duration of the contract. Short-term price forecasting considers anticipated changes in supply and pricing due to new capacity additions, turn-around schedules, inventory levels, infrastructure constraints, and supply scenarios in other regions. Some suppliers also offer advanced business models which consider commodity business models, seasonality, and interdependence on other chemical markets.

Carbon Black - Procurement Challenges

 

Accurately evaluating proprietary technologies is a key procurement challenge in the carbon black market as several large global players have patented formulations, and there is lack of comparative data for the evaluation of these products. Also, buyers may be unable to gauge the benefit of the patented formulation for end-use application due to limited performance data. To overcome this challenge, buyers need to enter into strategic partnerships with suppliers to gain greater visibility on proprietary information.
