Chemical and Materials Masterbatch Market

The masterbatch market is projected to grow at a CAGR 4.23% rate during the forecast period. Masterbatch is a blend of pigments, additives, and polymer materials (carrier resin). It is widely used in applications such packaging, building & construction, consumer goods, automotive, textile, and agriculture to strengthen the properties of plastic and to impart color. Color, white, black, additive, and filler are the different types of masterbatches based on the properties and functionality. The polymer-based masterbatch is used because of its easy processing with different plastics.By type, the masterbatch market has been segmented into color, white, black, additive, and filler. The color segment is expected to register highest market share during the forecast period, in terms of value. This is attributed to increasing use of color masterbatch in various applications such as packaging, building & construction, automotive, consumer goods, agriculture, and textile among, others.


On the basis of application, packaging segment is accounted for the largest market share, in terms of value, followed by the building & construction segment, in 2017. Growing demand for packaging in food & beverage, personal care, medical, household, electrical & electronics, building & construction, automotive, and other industries is expected to fuel the growth of the market. The emerging countries are developing the infrastructure by using masterbatch in the building & construction application.


APAC is estimated to be at the leading position in masterbatch market in 2018 and is expected to continue to lead the market till 2023. Countries such as India, China, and Taiwan, are witnessing strong demand for packaging, which is a key application of masterbatch and hence boost the growth of the market. Increased purchasing power of consumers and rise in the middle-class population in this region is also increasing the demand for plastic products in APAC.
