by Zhenpeng Li, Natalie Harris, Zhaokang Hu, Zhen Lai
In 2021, semicon wire and cable applications consumed 79 million KT of conductive carbon blacks. As one of the largest growth segments for specialty carbon blacks, demand in this market is forecast to grow 7% per year to 111 KT in 20261. This market relates to carbon blacks used in the conductor shield and the insulation shield, which are essential components for delivering desired conductive performance for cable protection.
