Orion raises acetylene black prices

Orion Engineered Carbons announced on Friday that it will increase pricing for acetylene black by 20 percent globally on March 1st, 2021, or as contracts allow.

Orion acquired the acetylene black plant in France in late 2018. Since the purchase, Orion has adjusted the facility’s strategic focus, requiring new investments to better serve the growing market demand for acetylene black used in lithium-ion battery production. In addition to these strategic investments, the company has also been confronted with rising costs for packaging, transportation, and environmental obligations, which led to the price increase.
