    Market Highlights

    Conductive additives or fillers are conductive materials, which are added to other base materials, such as polymers and elastomers, to impart a specific level of thermal or electrical conductivity to the latter. Carbon black is one of the major additives used for electrical conductivity applications. The additive is ideally suited for applications in li-ion batteries, advanced lead-acid batteries, alkaline batteries, and electrical components.

    Growth in new trends, such as printed electronics, foldable electronics, and flexible electronics, is likely to fuel the market’s growth. Increasing penetration of conductive additives with increasing demand for lightweight parts, increasing demand for lightweight materials including carbon fiber composites, an exceptional increase in the penetration of electric vehicles, and miniaturization of electronic devices are some of the other fueling factors for the market. Conductive carbon black additives are used across industries such as automotive, electrical & electronics, aerospace & defense, industrial, and consumer goods.

    The pandemic caused a minuscule decline of <5% in the conductive carbon black additives market in 2020, volume basis. The market was well-backed by strong demand from industries such as electrical & electronics and automotive. Furthermore, an incessant shift from traditional ICE vehicles to EV vehicles, resulting in heavy demand for conductive carbon black additives in Li-ion batteries is likely to give an impetus to the demand for conductive carbon black additives. Overall, the conductive carbon black additives market (excluding wires) is likely to grow at a healthy CAGR of 9.0 %, in the long run, to reach US$ 1.5 Billion in 2028.

    Recent Product Developments: Lightweight, high efficiency, and electrical insulation are the indispensable focus areas of the leading players while product developments. For instance, the Imerys product, C-THERM™, offers high electrical and thermal conductivity, wear reduction, and very little corrosion.
