China boosts exports of carbon black to US

The latest data from the International Trade Commission, USA, shows that China significantly boosted its exports of carbon black to the U.S.

According to market forecaster, Notch Consulting, the Far East exported around 23,000 metric tons of the raw material to America in 2010, a substantial jump from the previous year when just 701 tons was exported.

This rapid expansion of volume has moved China to be the second-largest supplier of the material to the U.S. The number one supplier still remains Canada, despite a fall off in material shifted across the border. 2011 saw 101,731 tons supplied, down from 111,713 for the 2010 year.
