Towards the end of 2028, bags are likely to account for almost a third of the total estimated market value, according to the report. 

Among material types, polyethylene and polypropylene are currently leading with a collective revenue share of more than 55% in the carbon black for packaging market. 

Technical Incompatibility Continues to Challenge Market Growth 

Some of the major challenges facing the global carbon black for packaging market are technical incompatibilities of small-scale companies to manufacture conductive compounds. 

Compounding of carbon black and polymer materials is a complicated process and requires special attention during production. It involves high technical capabilities and resources to produce carbon black and polymer compounds. 

 Also, chemical properties of carbon black tend to hamper the mechanical properties of sensitive electrical and electronic components which, in turn, may contribute to the declining demand for carbon black for packaging applications. 

Growing Popularity of Carbon Nanotube to Hamper Growth

Carbon nanotubes are gaining strong traction in the global conductive polymers market. These have emerged as the most effective additive solution to impart conductivity to polymer materials.

It should be noted that the carbon nanotubes are 1000x more powerful than other widely used alternative additive solutions such as carbon black. This might hamper the global carbon black for packaging market during the forecast period.

Commercially-available static control materials usually contain 15-20% carbon black as an additive in ESD materials. The high content of carbon black leads to high surface conductivity which results in an uncontrolled discharge through the ESD material.

This has resulted in a decline in the growth rate of the carbon black for packaging market.
