The Future of Carbon Black to 2023 is founded on an exclusive primary and secondary research program covering all phases of the carbon black production industry.
The capacity information was developed from multiple media sources, company reports, industry associations and websites. This was then combined with trade statistics from official forces and governmental import/export agencies and cross-referenced with Smithers own extensive database spanning the global tire, rubber, plastics and inks markets.
This was further verified through a primary research with key companies active in the carbon black market in 2018.
This was further confirmed and contextualised by extensive secondary research; including scrutiny of industry publications; regional and local news organisations; press releases; patent and technical literature data stores; attendance at key industry conferences and trade shows.
